These delicious shaved steak sandwiches are topped with onions and peppers and Cheddar cheese. Serve these great sandwiches with potato salad, chips, or fries, along with sliced tomatoes and pickles.


  • 4 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 1 medium onion (halved and sliced)
  • 1 bell pepper (cut into thin slices)
  • 1 pound shaved steak (or very thinly sliced steak*)
  • Optional: salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 4 slices mild Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (or chipotle mayonnaise)
  • 4 bulkie rolls (or sub rolls, toasted)

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the sliced onion and peppers until wilted. Remove to a plate and set aside.

  2. Heat the remaining butter and add the steak. Cook, stirring until the beef is cooked to desired doneness, about 2 minutes. Do not overcook.

  3. Heat the broiler.

  4. Place sub rolls or bulkie roll bottoms on a baking sheet. Spread with mayonnaise. Divide steak evenly among the rolls and top with the cooked onions and peppers. Top each with a slice of cheese.

  5. Place them under the broiler just until cheese is melted.

*If you can't get shaved steak, slice partially frozen good quality, well-marbled steak as thin as possible.

Glass Bakeware Warning

Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.
