Grilled Philly Cheese Steaks

Pinterest can really get the imagination flowing. Especially when you’re craving cheesy, gooey anything. That’s why, when I stumbled upon a philly cheese steak photo on that wonderful site, I just had to make it – my own way, of course!

DSC_0334I started off with some beautiful, colourful veggies. (Gotta make it a little healthy, right?)

DSC_0335Hubby helped me out by slicing and assembling the buns.

DSC_0336I added the steak later on. You don’t want it to be overcooked!

DSC_0338Then, it was assembly time. I picked up some chipotle mayo from Save On Foods. It added so much to the sandwiches!

DSC_0339Then goes the filling.

DSC_0340Now the cheese. I used aged cheddar. Hmmmm…

IMG_2227Then wrap them in foil and pop them on the grill. We let them crisp up on the grill for 10 mins before checking on them, and they were PERFECT. Seriously. Make this tonight! (It’s way too hot to cook indoors anyway!)

Grilled Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches

You will need:

For the filling:

1 red onion

2 sweet bell peppers

1 package of sliced grilling steaks

1 tsp seasoning salt

1 tsp hickory smoke flavouring (if you don’t have this, don’t worry! It’s optional.)

1 tsp garlic powder

For assembling:

8 hoagie buns

1/2 tbsp each of chipotle mayonnaise

1 cup aged white cheddar cheese

Begin by dicing your veggies and sauteing them in a pan for 5 mins on medium-low heat. Add steak and seasoning and cook together. Prepare your buns by slicing them, then adding the mayo. Add the filling, then the cheese and wrap in aluminum foil. Grill for 10 mins and serve warm on a hot summer’s evening.
