Well, yes, I do usually make my Philly cheese steak sandwiches with thin-sliced rib eye steak. But I came upon some nicely-priced beef tenderloin, and since I had some odd-shaped pieces left after trimming it to make filet mignon, I decided to cook up this crazy good deluxe Philly cheese steak. It’s like the classic, but with a really fancy twist. Super tender, super flavorful.
I love the addition of garlic salt to this deluxe Philly cheese steak. It adds a nice different flavor beyond just salt and black pepper. Don’t go crazy with the garlic salt, but make sure to add enough to taste it.
- 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 large onion, sliced thin
- 1 green bell pepper, seeded, sliced thin
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded, sliced thin
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
- 1 pound beef tenderloin, sliced very thin
- 4 slices (or more) Mozzarella cheese
- 1 large loaf French bread or 4 separate Italian soft rolls, split
- Add the oil to a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add in the onion, bell peppers, garlic salt and pepper and saute until just tender. Remove to a bowl or plate and set aside.
- Add the steak to the skillet and fry until browned.
- Add the onion and pepper mixture back in and stir.
- Cover meat with the cheese.
- Spoon mixture onto bread and serve.
