Philly Steak and Swiss Sandwich

      There are times when things get hectic and I'm just too busy to cook, or at least very much. That's when I go to an old standby for a quick dinner - a budget Philly cheesesteak.  Since I can't always afford ribeyes and the freezer is my friend, I use Steak-umms. They cook quick, absorb the flavors of the veggies and are great smothered in cheese. No, it's not ribeyes, but they're easy, cheap and fast.

Philly Steak and Swiss Sandwich
6 slices of Steak-umms
1 large red or green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 onion, sliced in strips
2 slices Swiss Cheese
1 T. butter or olive oil
2 burger buns of choice
Add oil or butter to a large skillet over medium heat. Saute' bell peppers and onion until softened, about 7 minutes. 

Scoot veggies to the sides of the skillet and lay down 2 Steak-mm slices (not touching). Let steaks cook for about 3 minutes per side until lightly browned and then flip. Cook another 2-3 minutes and then remove to plate. Repeat process, stirring the veggies occasionally until all the meat is cooked. Turn heat off and assemble sandwich.

Place meat on bottom of buns, top with peppers and onions, and then layer on cheese slice. Makes 2 sandwiches (depending on the amount of meat you like).

(To really soften the bun and melt the cheese, microwave about 20-25 seconds before serving.)
