Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches…Country Style

I know it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make a good Philly Steak Sandwich, but my crew LOVES these.  And, it’s so easy, I wanted to share.

Before we start, let’s get one thing straight…I’m NOT a food blogger.  I leave that to the professionals.
So,  just hang in there with me, and know you will love the end result.  Oh, and if you don’t cook…you, too, can do this.  Yes, it’s that easy.

First, get a chuck roast.  In my opinion, it MUST be a chuck.  A chuck cooks perfectly every single time, and is fall-apart delicious.

I use a frozen chuck roast, because I can put it in the oven on my lunch hour.

Pre-heat oven to 250 degrees.

Place frozen roast in roaster pan or dutch oven.
Add 1/2 cup of water.
Season with whatever turns your crank. (sorry, shop talk…it’s hard to leave it at work)
I like garlic salt, pepper, and onion powder.

Cover and place in pre-heated 250 degree oven.  I realize you don’t need this picture of my oven, but what the heck!

The roast should be perfectly fall-apart done in about 5 hours.  Remove from oven.  With two  forks, roughly shredd.

Slice one meduim onion and one large green pepper.  Saute in olive oil until tender.

For those of you who like mushrooms, by all means, please slice some up and saute in butter.  I do this in a separate pan, because my husband doesn’t want them touching any of the other stuff which will eventually make it to his plate.  He calls it “mushroom contamination”.

I don’t have a picture of my lovely mushrooms.  See, this is exactly why I am NOT a food blogger.  Really, I have no business sharing this post.  I might just keep it as a draft.  You know… to remind myself, why I am NOT a food blogger.

However, if you are reading this, then you know in a moment of insanity…I hit the “publish” button.  I apologize in advance for that.

Pre-heat the broiler.
While the veggies are cooking, spread some butter on both halves of a subway roll.

Place on a cookie sheet and broil.  Watch these babies like a hawk, because when you broil, things can run amuck very, very quickly.  This is not the time to check your e-mail, send a tweet, or call your mom.  I know this from experience.  Another reason I am NOT a food blogger.

Broil until lightly toasted.

Remove the top half of bun from pan, and set aside.

Assemble sandwich with an even layer of meat, then an even layer of veggies.

I am sorry for the photos you are about to see.   They are the most unappealing, unappetizing photos you will ever be forced to look at.  That reminds me…I need one of those fancy schmancy cameras that food bloggers use.  Well, actually most bloggers use them…unless you’re me. 
One slice of swiss cheese, cut in half.
Put back under broiler for a a few minutes.  Once again, watch it like a hawk.  I mean it, people.
Put the top half of roll on and serve while hot. 
My guys love for me to add their favorite classy side… of…ahem…tator tots.
