Cheese Steak Sandwiches

Cheese steak sandwiches are a deliciously rich and cheesy classic sammie that'll warm you up from the inside out and satisfy all your comfort food cravings!


  • 2 tablespoons butter, plus more for buns
  • 1 medium onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 green pepper (or half green and half red so it's pretty)
  • 1 pound steak (1/2 to 3/4-inch thick), grilled
  • Tostito's Queso Cheese dip, about 1/2 cup
  • 4 fresh hoagie buns
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and green pepper. Saute until soft (about 8 minutes).
  2. While onions and pepper are cooking, slice steak into 1/4-inch slices against the grain.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F., and put in a dark cookie sheet to get hot. Split the buns in half, and butter the insides. When veggies are done, add the steak.
  4. Place the buns, butter-side down, on the hot cookie sheet.
  5. Heat steak until warm.
  6. Add about a 1/2 cup of queso cheese dip to the hot veggies and meat -- you want enough to make it creamy, but not soaked.
  7. Pull the pan out of the oven when the buns are toasted. Turn your oven to broil.
  8. Flip the buns over on the pan, so that the toasted side is facing up. Fill each bun with 1/4 of the veggie-steak mixture, and place mozzarella on top.
  9. Put the sandwiches back in the oven, under the broiler, until the mozzarella is melted.
  10. Serve hot!


  • I'll often make steak the night before (or earlier in the week) and just cook enough so that I have leftovers to make this recipe. Cooking the steak ahead of time cuts down on the time it takes to make this meal.
