There is no denying that meat, cheese and bread are an awesome combination. Burgers are super juicy, charred, cheesy and handheld so what could possibly be better than that? A cheese steak sandwich of course. Just like in Philly, where the cheese steak was born and still reigns supreme, this “Motown” will deliver the goodness.
For this recipe sirloin steak is used, but could easily be replaced with rib eye, skirt steak, flank steak or even strip steak. The meat gets a quick poke with a fork to allow the marinade of balsamic vinegar and hot sauce to penetrate the meat. Grill outside, until slightly charred while still being moist and juicy on the inside, is key to making this the ultimate steak sandwich.
Slice thin and pile into a fluffy soft bun. Top with grilled mushrooms and onions and then the best partgooey, melty, easy to make havarti cheese sauce. For those who dare, thin sliced fresh jalapeno peppers for a fiery contrast. While perfect any time of year, this will make a great addition to any tailgate party or football celebration this fall.
