Steak and Cheese Sandwiches with Onions and Mushrooms

I have a confession to make… steak and cheese sandwiches are my weakness! I love them for lunch or dinner and have a really hard time passing up Charley’s Subs whenever I’m in the mall.

I blame my Mom, she always made the BEST steak and cheese sandwiches for dinner, and luckily I don’t have to give them up and neither do you! I love this with Swiss, provolone, cheddar or even American cheese… reduced-fat of course.

How to make it?


For the steak:

1/2 lb thin cut beef round sandwich steaks
1/2 large onion, sliced into rings
1/2 tsp olive oil
8 oz sliced mushrooms
4 seconds cooking spray (I like Smart Balance)
garlic powder to taste
salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

For the sandwich:

12 oz French bread or baguette, cut into 4 pieces (see tip)
4 slices reduced-fat cheese slices (I used Sargento provolone)


Start by preparing the steak, click Quick Skillet Steak with Mushrooms and Onions for the recipe.

Preheat oven to 425° or set your broiler to low.

Once the steak is cooked and ready, cut bread into 4 pieces. Divide steak and mushrooms evenly between four sandwiches and place a slice of cheese on each one. Place sandwiches on a cookie sheet and heat in the oven or broiler until the cheese melts; 2 – 3 minutes, careful not to burn if using the broiler.
