Recipe: Philly steak sandwich

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Dietitian's tip:

Cheddar cheese is high in fat and calories, so limit the cheese to 2 tablespoons for each sandwich. For variety, use roast beef that has been rubbed with Italian seasonings.

Number of servings

Serves 2

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 green pepper, thinly sliced

  2. 1/2 small onion, thinly sliced

  3. 6 ounces lean roast beef, shaved

  4. 2 whole-wheat buns

  5. 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a baking pan with cooking spray. Spray a frying pan with cooking spray. Over medium heat, saute the peppers and onions until they soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the roast beef and saute for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Place 1/2 of the roast beef mixture on each bun. Place in the prepared baking dish. Top each bun with 2 tablespoons of the cheese. Bake until the cheese has melted, 2 to 4 minutes.
