A Steak Sandwich Tradition

At 17 I fell in love. He was tall and smart, with twinkling blue eyes and I melted when he held my hands in his.

We were together as much as possible. We loved doing things together and for each other.

One summer evening, my love decided to cook supper for me.

I was completely charmed! {grins}

I was sure he was not only a genius, but would also make an amazing chef someday.

The meal he made me 22 years ago is now a favorite around our house!

I later found out, this meal was originally created by my dear FIL. But, I still think of it as "ours."
And we are continuing the tradition...

I wonder who he will cook these for someday?

Family Date Night Steak Sandwiches

[in our house these must be served with Puff Cheetos on the side because that is how my love served them to me!]

Hoagie Rolls
Cube Steak
Red and Green Bell Peppers, cut in strips
Sweet Onions, cut into rings or strips
sliced mushrooms
Fresh tomatoes, sliced
Mozzarella Cheese
Black Olives, sliced
Mayo (Olive Oil Reduced Fat Mayo is my Favorite!)
Zesty Italian Dressing
Olive Oil and seasoning for Hoagies

Prep all your veggies.
Cook cube steak in grill pan.
Saute veggies in a little butter.

To a 1/4 cup of olive oil add some seasonings: We use salt, pepper, garlic poweder, herbes de provance.
Mix together and brush onto your sliced open hoagies.
Bake in 450 oven for about 5-7 minutes and then turn on broiler and toast. Watch so you don't burn them!

How to build:

Toasted Hoagie
Cube Steak
sliced tomatoes
Sauteed peppers, onions, and mushrooms
Mozzarella Cheese
black olives
Drizzle on the Zesty Italian dressing

Nom Down!  Messy, lovely and YUMMY!

Don't forget the Puff Cheetos! :)

I'm linking up with Becky at Feed My Family Fridays (eventhough it is now after midnight, le sigh)
