Philly Cheese Sandwiches

One of our favorite restaurants is DP Cheesesteaks (DP stands for Downtown Philly).  We discovered it a year ago because it's located by the closest Don Aslet Cleaning Center.  And we've been back multiple times in the last year.  Here's a version of a cheesesteak sandwich that is quick, easy, and delicious.

Philly Cheese Sandwiches

1 tsp. olive oil
1 ½ cups slivered onion
1 ½ cups green bell pepper strips
½ tsp. Montreal Steak Seasoning
4 French rolls
Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
8 oz. thinly sliced deli roast beef
4 (1 oz.) slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese

1.  Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Add onion; sauté 10 minutes.  Add bell pepper and seasoning; sauté 3 minutes or until bell pepper is crisp-tender.
2.  Coat top sides of bread slices with cooking spray; top each coated side with 2 oz. beef, ¼ cup onion mixture, and 1 cheese slice.
3.  Place sandwiches on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts.  Yield: 4 servings.  

Note:  I added mushrooms to the sauteed vegetables, used mozzarella cheese that I had on hand rather than Swiss, and lightly buttered and toasted the French rolls.  Finally, I used the grill rather than the oven to heat up the meat.  We like our Philly Cheesesteaks served with a mild horseradish sauce.  I really need to figure out how to duplicate the DP Cheesesteaks Cherry Horseradish Sauce.  It is SO addicting and delicious. We're thinking they might add finely chopped Cherry Peppers to a mild horseradish sauce.
