Big Papi’s Steak Sandwich
4 hard rolls, split
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds round steak, thinly sliced
1 large onion, sliced and quartered
1 Red or Green Pepper sliced and quartered
1 tomato sliced
1 pinch coarse sea salt
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon liquid smoke
8 (1 ounce) slices provolone cheese
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Preheat an oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Split the rolls open and toast them on a baking sheet in the oven while it is preheating. Mix together the mayonnaise, garlic, and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use. Remove the rolls from the oven when toasted as desired.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully place the sliced steak and onions in the pan and season with sea salt, Worcestershire sauce, and liquid smoke. Cook and stir until the steak is browned and the onion is tender, about 10 minutes.
Generously spread the prepared garlic-Parmesan mayonnaise on both halves of the toasted rolls. Divide the steak, pepper and onion mixture evenly among the bottom halves of the rolls, piling them high. Top each a slice of tomato and sprinkle with Italian seasoning and top with 2 slices provolone cheese. Place the tops on the sandwiches.
Bake the sandwiches on a baking sheet in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
Tonight I’m serving with Potato Wedges and garden salad.
