Steak and Cheese Sandwiches with Onions and Mushrooms

I have a confession to make… steak and cheese sandwiches are my weakness! I love them for lunch or dinner and have a really hard time passing up a Charley’s Subs whenever I’m in the mall.

I blame my Mom, she always made the BEST steak and cheese sandwiches for dinner, and luckily I don’t have to give them up and neither do you! I love this with Swiss, provolone, cheddar or even American cheese… reduced-fat of course.

Yesterday I posted a recipe for Quick Skillet Steak with Mushrooms and Onions, this sandwich is made with that steak recipe whether you have leftovers or want to make it specifically for this sandwich, as I often do. And as I’ve mentioned before, I always scoop out some of the bread to make a bigger sandwich without the added calories or points.

Ingredients:

For the steak:

  • 1/2 lb thin cut beef round sandwich steaks
  • 1/2 large onion, sliced into rings
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 4 seconds cooking spray (I like Smart Balance)
  • garlic powder to taste
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

For the sandwich:

  • 12 oz French bread or baguette, cut into 4 pieces (see tip)
  • 4 slices reduced-fat cheese slices (I used Sargento provolone)

Directions:

Start by preparing the steak, click Quick Skillet Steak with Mushrooms and Onions for the recipe.

Preheat oven to 425° or set your broiler to low.

Once the steak is cooked and ready, cut bread into 4 pieces (see tip). Divide steak and mushrooms evenly between four sandwiches and place a slice of cheese on each one. Place sandwiches on a cookie sheet and heat in the oven or broiler until the cheese melts; 2 – 3 minutes, careful not to burn if using the broiler. Enjoy!!
