Today’s Menu: Steak (London Broil) and Cheese Hoagies w/ Baked Crinkle Fries
While at Walmart I picked up a beautiful London Broil. I decided to have a Steak and Cheese Hoagie and Spiced Mayo w/ Baked Crinkle Fries for dinner. I seasoned the Broil with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it about 4 minutes per side to medium rare. Along with the Steak recipe I left the recipe for the Spiced Mayo and a Worcestershire Mix Sauce at the end of the post. Make sure you make both the sauces they go fantastic with the sandwich. If you like Steak Sandwiches you have to give this a try! I used Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns for the bread, a lot fewer calories and carbs than Hoagie Buns. For sides we had Baked Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn
Steak and Cheese Hoagies
1 1/2 pound London Broil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and freshly Ground Black Peppercorn
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon French’s Spicy Brown Mustard
1 teaspoon chopped Rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
Healthy Life Whole Grain Hot Dog Buns
Sargento’s Muenster Cheese Slices, 1 slice per sandwich
1/2 cup Kraft Reduced Fat Mayonnaise w/ Olive Oil
1 tablespoon Frank’s Hot Sauce
5 Large Portabella Mushrooms, sliced and sauteed.
1 Remove steak from refrigerator 2 hours before cooking to bring to room temperature (only do this with whole cuts of meat, never with ground meat.) Add sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
2 Heat a large skillet to medium high heat. Place the beef in the skillet and let it cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, check before flipping to make sure it has nicely browned. At this point, if you have a steak only an inch thick or less, you can take the skillet off the heat and just let the steak sit for several minutes in the skillet, which will retain enough heat to cook the steak to medium rare. You can test for doneness by using a small sharp knife and cutting into the center to check the color. Also, if the steak is brown on both sides and it is weeping red juice.
* If you have a thicker steak, you can finish it off in the oven, at 325°F for 15 minutes or so. Use a meat thermometer to test the internal temperature of the steak. It will be done at 130°F for medium rare. If you are using the oven method, when done, remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
3 While the Steak is frying, in a medium bowl whisk together the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, mustard, rosemary, and red pepper flakes. Set aside. Slice and Sautee Mushrooms and set aside.
4 Remove the steak from the pan to a cutting board. Slice the steak thinly and toss the slices in the Worcestershire sauce mixture.
5 Spread the buns open and arrange on a baking sheet.Top each bun with a slice of the cheese and put them under the broiler until the cheese is melted and bubbling, about 1 to 2 minutes.
6 In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and hot sauce. Spread the mayonnaise onto the bottom of each bun. Put the slices of the beef onto each of the roll and top with the mushroom slices.
