Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches

I love Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches and I will order them every time I see them on a menu. We seldom go out, but everyone in my family knows that's what I'm going to order if it is available and if it isn't, I also love a good quesadilla. However, I order with trepidation. It's hit and miss as to whether or not it's going to be good or not.

When we were in Vegas a few years ago, the hotel/casino had Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches and they were SO good! I had them twice and then I discovered a little hole in the wall place in town and a couple of friends told me that their Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches were amazing. They were right. As good as the ones in Vegas.

So I decided I'd try to recreate them at home and DH said I nailed it. The thing I don't like about most of them is soggy bread. I wanted something that would hold up to the filling so I went with a Ciabatta bread, slightly toasted...Yum! I've never found one served on Ciabatta. Sometimes I buy the Ciabatta bread and sometimes I make it. And the addition of the jalapeno gives it that extra zip that really makes my mouth happy.

Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

Ciabatta Bread - we like ours toasted
1 lb good quality deli roast beef (Yes, I know it's expensive)
a few shakes of Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 green pepper, sliced
Sliced mushrooms
1 sliced jalapeno
Cheese slices - Swiss or Provolone or Pepper Jack - these have all worked well for us

*Saute onions, green pepper, mushrooms and jalapeno in a Tbsp of olive oil and a little butter for 5-10 minutes We like a little char on ours. Slice roast beef into thin ribbons and add to skillet with a few shakes of Worcestershire Sauce, sauteing until warmed through and a little browned on the edges. Pile onto Ciabatta bread and add 2 slices of cheese. Top with second piece of toasted bread and dig in!

Looks and sounds delicious. I also like these sandwiches (though I don't order them often--only one place in town that I know serves them), but can't get one on a gluten free bun. May actually have to break down and make my own now. : )
Thanks for the recipe!
