Steak and Cheese Sandwich - { GIVEAWAY! }


A steak leftover gets a makeover in these delicious steak and cheese sandwiches for lunch the very next day.  I had a small steak from the night before and decided make a couple of steak sandwiches. 

Steak and cheese sandwiches are layered with slices of mozzarella cheese, thin slices of steak, roasted red peppers, and spinach, then topped with a drizzle of pesto and balsamic vinegar. Then they are grilled until the cheese is soften and the bread is crisp.  So good! Every bite was crunchy and mouth-watering, gosh... we couldn't stop eating.



I added some fresh spinach leaves in order to get some "healthy greens" in there, but you can add any fresh greens you prefer.  You can even add sliced avocados, onions and tomatoes if you prefer.  We adore the flavors of sweet roasted peppers and fresh mozzarella, and when you combine them with a steak, you get an amazing sandwich with flavors that is truly restaurant-worthy.  Try this one.


Now getting to the GIVEAWAY.  Healthy Solutions were so nice to send us a few
 samples of their spice blend packets.

Healthy Solutions Spice Blends are made with all natural spices and contain no preservatives, no msg, and no fillers.  I was excited to try it on our steaks the other night, and they turned at very tasty.

Healthy Solutions are offering a gift package of spice blends to be sent to ONE of our readers as a Giveaway!

All you have to do is leave a comment about your favorite sandwich! 
And we will announce the winner on Wednesday, Oct.1st.
Enjoy and have a great weekend!


  
Steak and Cheese Sandwich
  • 1 filet mignon or steak(about 4 ounce)- seasoned with 2 tsp. of Perfect Steak HS Spice Blends, then grilled, and cut on diagonal into thin slices 
  • roasted red peppers from a jar - (I used Mancini)
  • bunch of fresh baby spinach
  • 1 package of fresh mozzarella
  • 2 to 3 tsp. pesto sauce
  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Hoagie Rolls or small baguette, cut in half  

Heat a skillet on medium heat, or heat outside grill.  Slice open each roll and spread some butter on both sides of each roll.  Place the roll open face down on grill or skillet  and toast the rolls until bread is crisp and lightly brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. 

Divide the steak among the rolls.  Add a few slices of mozzarella cheese, then 2 or 3 slices of roasted red peppers, and a small bunch of spinach.
Then drizzle with pesto and balsamic on top before closing the sandwich.
Close the sandwich and place it back on the grill.  Place a metal spatula on top and hold it down to apply pressure to keep sandwiches closed, for about 1 to 2 minutes.  Remove and serve.

Serves 2

  1. Great looking sandwich, I can taste it now, one of my favorites! Depending on my mood I could come up with a bunch of favorite sandwiches but tonight I could eat a capicola, salami, provolone and all the fixings on hard Italian bread! :)

  5. My favorite sandwich is from a local restaurant/bakery in RI. It's a hot pressed vegan sandwich with seasoned roasted vegetables (squash, zucchini, eggplant), spinach, and white bean garlic lemon hummus. It's AMAZING.

  6. I adore a good steak and cheese but lately I've been eating a hummus wrap with oven roasted tomatoes and spinach that seriously satisfies! Steak Panini's are a perfect way to enjoy left overs. We're on OBX right now enjoying a nice long family extravaganza - seriously eating way too much! Looking forward to getting back to normal eating :) Have a great week.

  7. My word, Anna & Liz! This steak sandwich looks scrumptious. Lately I've been fixated on a Chicken Caesar Club sandwich which is made on homemade ciabatta, and uses pancetta. I hope to see Healthy Solutions in the store...I'd like to check it out. Happy weekend, ladies.
