Recipes: Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches & Parmesan Garlic Steak Fries

Last night we tried something new! Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches and Parmesan Garlic Steak Fries.  I personally thought the cheese was so-so, but Mike loved it, so I guess it was good? 

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich: 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound beef round steak, cut into thin strips
  • 2 green bell peppers, cut into 1/4 inch strips
  • 2 onions, sliced into rings
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 hoagie rolls, split lengthwise and toasted
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and minced garlic. Cover, and refrigerate. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute beef until lightly browned. Stir in green pepper and onion, and season with salt and pepper. Saute until vegetables are tender, and remove from heat.
  3. Spread each bun generously with garlic mayonnaise. Divide beef mixture into the buns. Top with shredded cheese, and sprinkle with oregano. Place sandwiches on a baking pan.
  4. Heat sandwiches in preheated oven, until cheese is melted or slightly browned.

Parmesan Garlic Steak Fries:  

– I have to admit, I cheated and used a bag of frozen steak fries, but that’s because I bought them before I found the recipe – I’ll try it with potatoes next time.  The fries got a bit over done because of having used the frozen fries.  So you CAN do it with frozen fries, just knock 10 minutes off of the time – 

Ingredients

  • 4 large unpeeled russet potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place the potatoes in a mixing bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Season with garlic, thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt. Toss until evenly coated. Lift the fries out of the bowl and spread onto a nonstick baking sheet in a single layer. Save the remaining oil in the bowl.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, flipping the fries halfway through baking. Return the fries to the bowl with the olive oil, sprinkle with 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and parsley. Toss to coat, then spread again onto the baking sheet. Return to the oven, and bake until the Parmesan cheese melts, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle the fries with the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt to serve.
