Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich… sort of!

This dish might not rank extremely high on the health scale but I still,I think it was a pretty healthy alternative to a classic sandwich.

You see, the weather has finally been summer like this week-end, so we sort of kicked off summer by firing up the BBQ.

While I don’t eat much beef anymore, there is one thing that I will always enjoy and indulge in once in a while, and that is a nice, big, juicy ribsteak cooked on the BBQ. It’s always been and always will be one of my guilty pleasures.  Seeing that I like my steaks cooked Pittsburgh style (charred on the outside while still raw on the inside), I always have to have the butcher custom cut me a couple of really thick steaks, which, of course, always end up weighing well over a pound.

There was a time when I was able to eat the whole thing, with a side of potato and salad. No more! There is no way I could go through that entire piece of meat, so I always end up with quite a decent chunk of leftover steak to use in such a sandwich.

Not a bad way to use leftover steak, if you ask me! Although it does lack a bit in the veggie department, I admit…

This one was pretty easy to make.

Ingredients for one sandwich

  • 175g  leftover steak
  • 4 mushrooms, sliced and cooked
  • 20g goat cheese, crumbled
  • 20g blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 1 whole grain sandwich loaf

Instructions

  1. Coat skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat. Cook mushrooms until nice and golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Cut loaf in half lenthtwise and toast lightly in toaster.
  3. Cut the leftover steak in very thin slices.
  4. When bread is ready, spread mustard on bottom half.
  5. Mound steak, top with mushrooms and goat cheese and blue cheese crumbles.
  6. Put in the oven on broil (do not top sandwich just yet, keep top piece on the side) for about 5 minutes, just to soften cheese and heat meat slightly.
  7. Take out of the oven and put top slice in place.

  1. I’m from outside of Philly and I approve! This may not be the “traditional” sandwich, but it looks pretty damn good.
