"This recipe is our version of a Philadelphia Cheesteak sandwich and is made with what I consider gourmet meat next to the normal meat used. Typical chesse steak sandwiches are made with frozen cardboard type meat. It doesn't sound appetising does it? It comes in a frozen rectangular sheet that is pressed into that shape, and is very thin in thickness. One takes out two frozen sheets and it is either cooked on a griddle flat and broken up with a spatula or ripped into pieces before being placed in the pan or on the grill from a frozen state. I never buy the finished sandwich out any more as none compare to this sandwich. And yes, I am spoiled."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Slice onion and microwave for 2 minutes on a paper plate.

Step 2

Add the onion to a skillet with butter and continue to saute until caramelized, about 10 minute on low, stirring occassionally.

Step 3

While the onion is cooking, chip the steak if not already chipped. (I semi freeze the ribeye and slice it in very thin small pieces.)

Step 4

Add the chipped ribeye to the skillet on medium heat with the onions and cook the meat until brown in color, about 10-15 minutes flipping the meat over to get all sides.

Step 5

Once the meat is browned, add the cheese and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until melted and mix it thoroughly with the ribeye and onion mixture.

Step 6

Divide mixture into 4 equal parts and place each part into the rolls.

Step 7

At the table, serve with ketchup if so desired. (DH likes the ketchup on it where as I like the sandwich without).

Great sandwiches! Instead of the American cheese I used some leftover shredded cheese but otherwise made as directed. These are great sandwiches! I also skipped the ketchup.
