Pizza Steak Sandwiches

I was Mr. Mom the other night. When that happens I let the girlies pick what's for dinner. On this particular occasion they chose pizza steak sandwiches. Normally this would just mean a Philly with pizza sauce, but then you still need a side vegetable. But wait...

What if you put the side veggie on the sandwich? Why, then you simply have a meal on a roll. And, with that, let's roll!

1 lb Flat iron steak
1 bag (12 oz) Frozen mixed vegetables (broccoli, squash, green beans, etc.)
1 bag (8 oz) Frozen three-pepper and onion blend
1/2 cup Zesty Italian salad dressing
1 1/2 cup Pizza sauce (or marinara)
1 1/2 cups Mozzarella cheese, grated
8 slices Pepper-jack cheese
5 large Hoagie rolls
1 1/2 Tbsp Canola oil, divided
1 tsp Garlic salt
Black pepper

Pizza Steak Sandwiches

Note: This recipe calls for a cast iron grill griddle, but a standard broiler pan will certainly suffice.

Put the steak in a non-reactive baking dish and pour on the salad dressing.

Pizza Steak Sandwiches

Flip the steak over a couple times to ensure it is coated well.

Sprinkle each side of the steak generously with black pepper.

Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for an hour.

Wipe your cast iron grill griddle or broiler pan lightly with 1/2 tablespoon of canola oil.

Move your oven rack so that it is about four inches from the broiler element (top of your oven).

Put the griddle/pan on the rack and preheat your oven to 550* for about 20 minutes.

While the oven and griddle/pan are preheating...

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the remaining one tablespoon of oil to the pan and swirl to coat it well.

Add all of the frozen vegetables to the pan and season them with the garlic salt and pepper.

Saute the vegetables, tossing/stirring often, until all of the liquid has evaporated (about five minutes).

Remove the saute pan from the heat and set aside.

Remove the steak from the marinade onto several layers of paper towel.

Fold the paper towel over the steak and press them to remove the excess marinade.

Turn the oven to broil.

Broil the steak on the griddle/pan for five minutes.

Flip the steak over and broil another five minutes.

Note: These cooking times are approximate for a medium-rare steak, so adjust accordingly.

While the steaks are finishing...

Split the rolls, put them on a pizza or sheet pan and add 1 1/2 slices of pepper jack.

Pizza Steak Sandwiches

Remove the steak to a plate, tent with foil and let it rest about five minutes.

Put the rolls under the broiler to melt the pepper jack (about a minute).

Slice the steak across the grain about 1/4" thick.

Put a few slices of steak on each roll.

Pizza Steak Sandwiches

Pour equal amounts of the pizza sauce on top of the steak on each sandwich.

Top the sauce with a healthy portion of the vegetable mixture.

Sprinkle each sandwich equally with the mozzarella.

Put the sandwiches under the broiler until the mozzarella is just melted (about two minutes).

Serve and enjoy!
