Cheese Steak Wrap

Cheese Steak #Wrap

I know I could name this as “Philly” Cheese Steak, but as you can see it is not the most authentic recipe for one my favorite sandwich, so it is just a cheesesteak. Needless to say it is very delicious, melt in your mouth, and on the ‘healthier’ side, compared to your regular Philly Cheese Steak.
I marinated thinly sliced half frozen beef, then threw it on the hot non-stick pan with a bit of oil. The taste was just amazing.
OK! I didn’t have mushrooms or Provolone cheese, so instead, I used sharp cheddar. It worked very well, and the colors were just amazingly beautiful. I garnish this with Thai basil from my garden. Aren’t those Basil flowers, beautiful?

My family is always in love with this wrap when I make it, so I thought to share it with you today.
It’s really up to your preferences whether you’ll use French or Italian Bread, or like I wrap it up, provolone or other cheese, or perhaps add lettuce or spinach like I did.

Cheese Steak Wrap

Directions:

  1. Ask the butcher to cut a beef into paper-thin slices, then you can place the beef in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm it until tight, but not frozen. Cut slices all together diagonally into about 2-inch strips. Place it in the medium-sized bowl, then add half onion (rings), garlic, and season it with salt and ground black pepper to taste (about 2 tsp. Salt and 3 tsp. Ground black pepper). Pour oil and Rice vinegar, and mix it all up to coat the thinly sliced beef. Cover with a plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to marinate for about 30 minutes.
  2. While beef is marinating, slice green pepper, and remaining onion. Make sure to separate rings.
  3. Add oil in the nonstick pan and turn the heat on medium high. Add marinated beef first, saute for about 5 minutes, then add green pepper and onion. Season with more salt and ground black pepper if needed.
  4. Saute for 15 minutes or until green pepper is completely done, and onion starts to caramelize. I like to cover it with a fitted lid, so the peppers could steam up, and I lift the lid every few minutes to stir. You can add more oil if necessary. (But 3 tbsp. Should be enough.)
  5. Wrap it up with baby spinach, and tomato. (Or any other topping such as lettuce, pickles, etc.)

NOTE* 
You can add a dash of sugar to bring more sweetness.
Rice vinegar is optional, you can use a squeeze of lemon juice instead.
This is great for lunch box.
Leftover: place (cooled) steak in the airtight container, and it can be in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Reheat to eat!
