Quick Fix Steak Sandwich using the Cuisinart Griddler

You’re at this post for a reason. Maybe, like me, you actually like Steak-Umms. Like many, I was first exposed to them in a school lunch cafeteria years and years ago. And like many kids of the time, I would go home and beg mom to get them so I could have a steak sandwich there too. Mom wasn’t too keen on them, but would buy them for me as a rare treat. I’d have them about as simple as you could get: fried the Steak-Ummm, put it on a bun or white bread with ketchup, eat. Well, now I step things up with my quick fix steak sandwich, made using the Cuisinart Griddler.

Quick Fix Steak Sandwich using the Cuisinart Griddler

The Griddler makes making a steak sandwich about as easy as you can get. Having the two big cooking griddles lets you cook several things at once. Without it, I’d end up with a skillet for the Steak-Umms, another for the onions and peppers, and I’d probably fire up the oven or toaster just to toast my sub roll. Sheesh, that’s a lot of stuff when I can do it all on my Griddler.

The history of the Steak-Umm is actually rather interesting. You can read about it here.

Ingredients

  • 1 hoagie sandwich roll split
  • 1 slice Steak-umm or other thin-sliced frozen steak
  • 1/4 green bell pepper sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup mushrooms sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup onion sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Cheez Whiz or other cheese dip, warmed

Instructions

  • Open your Griddler so that the griddle plates are open flat. You want to use the smooth griddles.
  • Turn the Griddler Selector knob (the center one) to 'griddle'. Set the temperature know to 425 F, the maximum.
  • Once the green light is lit, indicating that the Griddler is at 425 F, you can being cooking.
  • Place the bell peppers and onion in a small bowl. Drizzle with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Stir and transfer to one side of one of the griddle plates. See my picture for how I arrange things on the Griddler.
  • On the other plate place the bread halves. Let them toast as long as desired as the rest of the ingredients cook.
  • Let the onion and peppers cook for 5 minutes, stirring a few times.
  • Add the mushrooms to the onion and peppers. Stir and cook another 5 minutes. The vegetables should be just starting to turn tender.
  • Place the Steak-umm on the griddle plate alongside the vegetables. Season as desired.
  • Continue cooking the Steak-umm until it starts to brown along the edges. Flip and continue cooking until done.
  • Assemble the sandwich by placing the Steak-umm on the bottom bread half. Add the cooked vegetables. Drizzle on the cheese, add the bread top.
  • Serve with plenty of napkins. You want that cheese to be nice and runny!
