Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ribeye steak trimmed and thinly sliced*
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper or to taste
  • 1 sweet onion (large), diced
  • 8 slices provolone cheese mild (not aged provolone)
  • 4 Hoagie Rolls sliced 3/4 through
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 1 garlic clove pressed
  • 2-4 Tbsp mayonnaise or to taste

Instructions

  1. Slice hoagie rolls 3/4 of the way through with a serrated knife. Dice onions and thinly slice beef.*

  2. In a small bowl, stir together 2 Tbsp softened butter with 1 pressed garlic clove. Spread garlic butter onto the cut sides of 4 hoagie roll. Toast the buns on a large skillet, flat cooktop or griddle on medium heat until golden brown then set aside.

  3. Add 1 Tbsp oil to your pan/cooktop and sautee diced onions until caramelized then transfer to a bowl.
  4. Increase to high heat and add 1 Tbsp oil. Spread the super thinly sliced steak in an even layer. Let brown for a couple of minutes undisturbed then flip and season with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Sautee until steak is fully cooked through then stir in the caramelized onions.
  5. Divide into 4 even portions and top each with 2 slices of cheese and turn off the heat so the cheese will melt without overcooking the meat.
  6. Spread a thin layer of mayo on the toasted side of each roll. Working with one portion at a time, place a toasted bun over each portion and use a spatula to scrape the cheesy beef into your bun as you flip it over. Serve warm.

Recipe Notes

*For easier slicing, cover and freeze your steak for 30-40 minutes (freeze a thicker steak 40 min and a thinner steak 30 min).
