Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich… sort of!
This dish might not rank extremely high on the health scale but still, I think it was a pretty healthy alternative to a classic sandwich.
You see, the weather has finally been summer like this week-end, so we sort of kicked off summer by firing up the BBQ.
While I don’t eat much beef anymore, there is one thing that I will always enjoy and indulge in once in a while, and that is a nice, big, juicy ribsteak cooked on the BBQ. It’s always been and always will be one of my guilty pleasures. Seeing that I like my steaks cooked Pittsburgh style (charred on the outside while still raw on the inside), I always have to have the butcher custom cut me a couple of really thick steaks, which, of course, always end up weighing well over a pound.
There was a time when I was able to eat the whole thing, with a side of potato and salad. No more! There is no way I could go through that entire piece of meat, so I always end up with quite a decent chunk of leftover steak to use in such a sandwich.
Not a bad way to use leftover steak, if you ask me! Although it does lack a bit in the veggie department, I admit…
This one was pretty easy to make.
Ingredients for one sandwich

- When bread is ready, spread mustard on bottom half.
- Mound steak, top with mushrooms and goat cheese and blue cheese crumbles.
