Test Kitchen Tips
You may freeze beef steak in a resealable food-safe plastic bag 30 to 45 minutes or until firm, but not frozen solid for easier slicing.
In some classic Philly Beef Cheese Steak Sandwiches, you'll find the addition of sautéed sliced mushrooms. You may add 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms and stir-fry with onion and pepper.
The sandwiches can be topped with chopped tomatoes, if desired.
The sautéed bell pepper may be served on top of the beef instead of mixed with the beef.
