Steak & Cheese Sandwiches with Onions & Mushrooms

Original Recipe HERE

So good.  Husband and I are big fans of hearty sandwiches...I always seem to eat double the volume of food than I normally would at dinner.  These were no exception.  I assume this recipe would work with chicken, pork, or large portobello mushrooms (though that might be mushroom overload; perhaps best to eliminate the secondary use of mushrooms in that case).

The original recipes uses the oven or broiler.  I prefer to use our toaster oven when I'm in a hurry to get food on the table.

1/2 pound beef round steak, cut thinly
1/2 large onion, sliced into rings
8 oz sliced mushrooms
olive oil or cooking spray
garlic powder, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
12 oz French baguette [or other bread]
sliced cheese [I used smoked provolone]

(1) Slice beef into thin strips. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
(2) Heat a large skillet over high heat. When the skillet is very hot, spray with cooking spray or add olive oil.
(3) Add half of beef. Cook one minute; turn steak over and cook an additional 30 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside.
(4) Spray the skillet again.  Add the remaining steak; repeat cooking steps and remove from heat.
(5) Spray the skillet again.  Add onions; season with salt and pepper. Cook one minute; turn and cook onions an additional 30 seconds or until golden.  Remove from heat.
(6) Lower heat to medium; add olive oil to skillet or spray again.  Add mushrooms; season with salt and pepper. Cook 1 1/2 minutes; turn mushrooms and cook another 1 1/2 minutes.
(7) Remove mushrooms from heat.  Comnbine well with beef and onions.
(8) Cut bread into four equal pieces or separate rolls into tops and bottoms.  Lightly toast in toaster oven.
(9) Remove bread.  Add steak mixture to bottom halves and top with cheese.  Broil until cheese melts.  Remove sandwich and cover with top half of bread [Or add steak mixture to bottom halves, top with cheese and top half of bread, and wrap with foil.  Toast in toaster oven for several minutes.]
