Why This Recipe Works
Steak hoagies are traditionally made with thinly shaved pieces of beef that are quickly cooked on a griddle and then layered into rolls with thinly sliced cheese. To translate this recipe for the home cook, we had to make a few adjustments. We skipped the tedious step of shaving the meat and simply pan-seared steaks and then sliced them thin. Using high-quality strip steaks for their beefy flavor and tender texture is imperative in this steak hoagies recipe. We found that sliced mozzarella or American cheese can be substituted for the provolone. The sliced steak, sautéed vegetables, and cheese are piled into the rolls and then quickly baked in a very hot oven to melt the cheese. We even found a way to make cleanup easier: simply line the rimmed baking sheet with foil.
