Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

From: EatingWell

Most of the good stuff in a Philly cheese steak, from thin-sliced steak to onions, peppers and mushrooms, is still here but we opt for slightly-less-gooey but more flavorful provolone cheese in place of Cheese Whiz. We adore spicy banana peppers as a topping, but omit them if you can do without the heat.

Servings: 4 servings
Prep: 35 mins

 by 4 people
2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
1   medium onion, sliced
8 ounces  mushrooms, sliced
1   red or green bell pepper, sliced
2 tablespoons  minced fresh oregano, or 2 teaspoons dried
1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
1 pound  sirloin steak, trimmed and thinly sliced (see Kitchen Tip)
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1 tablespoon  all-purpose flour
1/2 cup  sliced hot banana peppers, (optional)
1/4 cup  reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 ounces  thinly sliced reduced-fat provolone cheese
4   whole-wheat buns, split and toasted
1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft and beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, bell pepper, oregano and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are wilted and soft, about 7 minutes. Add steak and salt and cook, stirring, until the meat is just cooked through, about 4 minutes.
2. Reduce heat to low. Sprinkle the vegetables and meat with flour; stir to coat. Stir in banana peppers (if using) and broth; bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat; lay cheese slices on top of the vegetables and meat, cover and let stand until melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
3. Divide into 4 portions with a spatula, leaving the melted cheese layer on top. Scoop a portion onto each bun and serve immediately.
Kitchen tip: It is easiest to cut meat into thin slices if it is partially frozen. If you have time, freeze it for 20 minutes before slicing.

Great recipe! used half each of a red, yellow, and orange pepper and slightly less meat and got great results. Definitely a delicious dish I would recommend.

Very tasty. Followed all the instructions to the letter, and my husband and I both found it to be lacking nothing. It was a very satisfying dinner, and the leftovers reheated well.
