James, from Book 6 of my Tarnished Saints Series cooked up a meal for Mindy, but it wasn’t really what he’d planned. When his brother, Levi, left food in the fridge for him it was far from romantic, but James whipped up a Philly Steak Sandwich with it. James, please tell us how to make it.
James: Sure, Elizabeth. When I lived out on my Texas ranch, I liked to eat meat and potatoes, none of this vegetarian stuff my brothers’ wives seem to like. Anyway, here is the recipe for one big, bad-ass meat sandwich.
James’s Philly Steak Sandwich:
1 1/2 lbs chipped/thinly sliced steak meant for sandwiches
1 onion, sliced
1 red poblano pepper sliced thin
Cook together in a little olive oil or you can use water, til veggies are soft and meat is brown. Cover with a lid.
Squeeze of lime – add to the meat.
1 long loaf of French bread or some kind of Hoagie rolls cut into sandwich size portions.
1 big handful (or more to taste) of shredded Italian 5-cheese blend. Either shut off stove and melt over top of meat mixture, or put on sandwich and nuke in microwave to melt.
Dressing: 3 tbs mayo, one or two cloves of minced garlic, 3 big basil leaves chopped and a little black pepper.
Use the dressing to coat the bread, pile the meat and cheese mixture on top, and use leftover juice from pan for a little more flavor.
Serve and eat! Simple and fast.
