Sandwich time in our house is always a fun time, sometimes we make chicken salad sandwiches, fish sandwiches or only plain old cold cut sandwiches, whatever we have a taste for that day. These Cheesesteak hoagies is most definitely an all time favorite in my house.
I love making these and they are so filling, when making these you can serve them with French Fries or just by themselves and making them the way I did in the video, placing them on a footlong hoagie bun, I would say that you may not need a side to go with this monster hoagie.
My mom always told me that the secret to making a great sandwich is to make it on good bread. Have you ever ordered a sandwich from a deli or sandwich shop and wished that it were placed on a different kind of bread then what they served it on? That has happened to me a several times before, and I was not pleased at all, because some breads just do not hold up under the pressure of all the topping that will go on it, causing it to fall apart, of get soggy, and when that happens, I lose interest in eating it.
So anytime you make a sandwich that has a lot of toppings, make sure you get a bun that can hold all the goodness you are going to pile on it. In my video I used a Footlong Italian Bun that I got from Sam’s Club, they also sell them in Costco’s, and if you do not live where these stores are located, then try your nearest bakery.
The SteakEz that I used in this video also came from Sam’s Club, and it cooks up so tender and believe me it is Sirloin Steak, or like I said in the video you can also use Thinly sliced Ribeye steak, which I normally use but they did not have any, so I used the SteakEz. But whatever you decide to use, it should taste amazing. You can go by my video and recipe and add your own favorite toppings but remember find a nice crusty bun. Enjoy
