Bama Steak Sandwiches (So very EASY)


I have so many things photographed and ready to bring you that my mind is reeling with what to do first! Today I decided to bring you a super quick and easy recipe to give us all a break during the rushed holiday season. Can you believe, after all you do, your family STILL expects supper every night? ~grins~

Even though the world won’t stop for us, we can at least streamline things a bit by serving these gorgeous sandwiches. My nine year old has fits over them and my husband just moans while he eats them, unable to put it down long enough to speak!

This is what I make when I just don’t feel like cooking (can you believe I sometimes don’t feel like cooking? Shocks even me!). You know what? I had these done from start to finish in TEN MINUTES!

Lets start our week off easy, shall we?

You’ll need: 1 pound of roast beef lunch meat (I just got mine in the Wal Mart deli), one to two cups mozzarella cheese, a package of soft deli rolls, onion, margarine, and Dale’s Sauce.
If you don’t have Dale’s Sauce, you can use Moore’s Marinade, soy sauce, or a little bit of Worcestershire sauce.
You can also make your own marinade like Dale’s by clicking here to get my all purpose marinade recipe.
Chop up your roast beef a bit.
Chop up your onion.
(also chop your bell peppers. I kept mine rather large because my family members would have a coniption fit if they had bell peppers on their sandwiches)
Melt 1/2 stick butter or margarine in skillet.
Add your onions to the skillet. I snuck some bell peppers in there but kept them fairly large so I could pick them out and not put them on my family’s sandwiches.
You see, my son and husband think they will keel over and die if they ever have to eat a bell pepper. I think they were dropped on their heads as children, but I’m pretty sure I’ve said that before in previous posts :).
Add a tablespoon or so of your sauce, depending on your taste.
Cook this over medium heat until your onions are tender, stirring often.
Add chopped roast beef and continue cooking and stirring just until your roast beef is warmed.
If you like, add another two tablespoons of your sauce.
Once that has been stirred in and your roast beef is good and warm, turn off stove eye and sprinkle cheese all over the top and let sit until melted.
Spoon onto your sandwich rolls.
DIVE IN!!! Oh, doesn’t that look YUMMY?
If you like, you can also make this filling the day before and just put it in the fridge, then heat up your filling in the microwave and place on your roll and you’re good to go!
