What puts this Philly style cheese steak sandwich I adapted over the top is making the cheese garlic bread for the moist beef, peppers, and onions to layer onto. What a yummy dinner to come home to!
Crockpot Italian Beef Cheese Steak Garlic Bread Sandwiches
1 lb. stew meat
1 onion sliced
choose your peppers and slice: 7 pepperoncini or banana peppers from a jar or a sliced green pepper
2 cups water or for spicier flavor use the juice from the jar of pepperoncini or banana peppers
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 pkg. dry italian dressing seasoning packet
4 oz. sliced provolone, mozarella, or pepperjack cheese
1 clove garlic or 2 Tablesoons Parmesan Garlic Bread Seasoning
8 slices sour dough bread or sour dough rolls
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
Put meat in crock pot. Sprinkle with Italian dressing seasoning packet. Top with onions and peppers. In separate bowl either use 2 cups reserved juice from pepper jar or water and disolve beef bouillon cubes. Pour into crock pot around the meat.
Cook on high for 3 hours or low for approx. 6 hours. Shred beef with a fork and return to crock pot. Continue cooking while you prepare garlic bread.
To make Garlic Bread: cut garlic bread in half and rub garlic on 4 pieces of bread and then top with butter or if using a garlic bread seasoning, spread with butter first and then sprinkle the buttered slices with seasoning.
On remaining 4 slices spread with mayonnaise and then top with cheese. Place all slices of prepared bread on a cookie sheet and toast under the broiler until cheese is melted.
Top each buttered garlic toast bottom with meat, peppers,and onions from crockpot. Top with cheesy melted bread. Optional: Serve with a side bowl of reserved juice for dipping.
