Instructions

  1. Place the steak in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm up (this will help you slice it).
  2. Use a very sharp knife to cut the thinnest strips possible from the beef.
  3. Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add the onions and cook for about 5 minutes, until soft and lightly browned.
  5. Add the bell pepper and mushrooms and continue to cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until all of the vegetables are browned. Remove and reserve.
  6. Swirl in enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan and add the sliced steak.
  7. Season with salt and pepper right away, then use a spatula or tongs to keep the steak moving.
  8. After the steak has browned on all sides (because it’s thin, this will happen quickly—4 to 5 minutes).
  9. Within the pan, divide the steak and veggie mixture into 4 equal piles and top each with a slice of provolone.
  10. Continue cooking for about 1 minute, just until the provolone has melted.
  11. Serve each pile on a hoagie roll.
