Philly Cheese Steak Melts

Ok so this is a total cheaters meal. Ready in just about 30 minutes. It is a perfect quick and easy weeknight meal. The "manziz" will love them to. Remember the way to a mans heart is through his stomach. That what mine tells me anyway. Deli meat piled with onions cheese and smothered in au jus. All on top of crusty bread. 

1 tbs Olive oil
1 Large Vidalia Onion, Thinly Sliced
1/2 cup Au jus , I always have extra frozen. For a short cut you can use a mix or pre-made Au-jus
1/2 lb Rare Deli Roast Beef, Thinly Sliced and Chopped
Black Pepper
1 Cup Cheddar Jack Cheese, Shredded
1 Loaf Crusty French Bread or Italian bread, sliced longways

Heat oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add onion and sprinkle with salt. Lower heat to medium low and let carmelize about 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add bread face up to a baking sheet and toast in oven for about 10 minutes.

When onions are nice and brown add Au jus and Roast Beef. Sprinkle with pepper. Give it a stir. Heat for 5 minutes then remove bread from oven and start your assembly. Spoon the meat and onion mixture with sauce on top of bread. Sprinkle with cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted and bubbly. Slice into pieces and enjoy!

    Stopping by from TTT.

  6. Wow! It’s certainly a quick and easy meal, considering it only took 30 minutes from preparation to serving. This would be great finger food at parties and special events! Thank you for sharing the recipe. Can I use Wagyu beef instead of rear deli roast beef? Wagyu Kobe beef is known to be packed with protein.

    1. Thank you Liz. Any thinly sliced beef would work well.
