Quick and Easy Cheesesteak

The kids wore me out today and I needed a quick, easy dinner to throw together. This recipe caught my eye and I've been wanting to make it for awhile.

It was good and very easy to make however there was just something keeping me from giving it 2 thumbs up. Maybe I'm turning into a food snob and was comparing it to the "real" cheesesteaks that we ate while living on the East Coast. :)

3 T. butter
1 green pepper, halved and sliced
1 onion, halved and sliced into thin half moons
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/4 t. dried oregano
2 T. A-1 steak sauce
1 lb. deli roast beef, cut into 2-inch strips
Salt and pepper
4 -6 (6-inch) sub rolls (depending on how meaty you like them – I did 6)
4-6 slices provolone cheese, cut on half

In a large skillet, melt the butter, add the onion and peppers; cook until softened and golden. Stir in the garlic and oregano and cook for a minute, until it smells fragrant. Add the A-1 sauce and the beef, stirring well to coat the beef with the sauce and onion/butter mixture. Cook until the meat is heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the sliced rolls on a rimmed baking sheet. Place to halves of provolone on half of each roll. Broil until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Top each roll with meat mixture . Serve immediately.
