COOK TIME
15 Min

This is a South-of-the-Border version of a Philly cheese steak sandwich. That means it's got that great Mexican spiciness!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1 1/2 pounds beef top sirloin steak, cut into short, thin strips
  • 3/4 cup medium picante sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • 3 (8-inch) hoagie or hero rolls, split
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add steak and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until steak is no longer pink. Add picante sauce, cumin, and garlic powder. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 more minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
     
  2. Preheat the broiler. Place the rolls cut side up on a baking sheet and broil just until golden. Spoon meat mixture evenly over rolls and top with cheese.
     
  3. Broil 3 to 5 minutes, or just until cheese has melted. Cut sandwiches in half and serve with additional picante sauce, if desired.

     

Notes

If you like Cheddar cheese, why not try a Tex-Mex cheese blend instead of just the Monterey Jack? And if you're starting with leftover steak, just cut it into thin strips, add it to the skillet with the picante sauce and continue as directed from there.
