This meaty, gooey delight is so delicious that you can find it in most sandwich shops across the country - even in popular restaurants or local food carts. Put a new twist on a Philly classic with Weber’s recipe for a Philly-Style Steak Sandwich with Grilled Onions and Provolone.
Serves: 4 // Prep time: 20 minutes | Grilling time: 11 to 13 minutes | Special equipment: perforated grill pan
- 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 boneless rib eye steaks, each 8 to 10 ounces and about 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- 4 ciabatta rolls, split
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- 8 thin slices provolone cheese, about 1 ounce each
- Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F) and preheat the grill pan.
- In a large bowl combine the onion, peppers, garlic, oil, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly. Spread the vegetables on the grill pan in a single layer. Grill over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until they start to brown and are tender, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a medium bowl.
- Cut the steaks lengthwise into ⅛-inch slices. Place the slices in a medium bowl, add just enough oil to coat them lightly, and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Grill the steak slices on the grill pan over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the meat begins to curl and brown, 4 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally. Wearing barbecue mitts, remove the pan from the grill and set it down on a heatproof surface.
- Brush the cooking grates clean. Lightly brush the cut sides of the rolls with oil and grill them over direct high heat until toasted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Gently rub the garlic onto the toasted rolls.
- Build the sandwiches with cheese, meat, onions, and peppers. Serve warm.
