2tablespoonsolive oilor avocado oil, divided
½white onionchopped, optional, (Note 1)
½green bell pepperdiced, optional
½red bell pepperdiced, optional
1.5lbs675gr thinly sliced ribeye steak, or top sirloin steak (Note 2)
½teaspooncoarse kosher salt
To prepare the rolls, slice hoagie rolls ¾ way and smear 1 tablespoon of butter, or mayo inside of each roll.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. (I used 12-inch skillet.)
Place the rolls cut-side down on hot skillet and toast until nice and golden. Remove from heat and set aside.
To cook the vegetables, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in the same skillet you toasted the roll. When oil is hot, add the diced onion and bell peppers and cook until nice and soft, about 3 minutes. Transfer onto a small plate.
To cook the meat, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in the same skillet over medium high heat. Add the sliced steaks, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until meat is fully cooked, no more than 2 minutes. Stir in the cooked bell peppers. (Alternatively, you can reserve the bell peppers and serve on the side as a topping.)
To assemble, remove from heat and divide the meat into 4 equal parts in the skillet. Place 2 slices of provolone cheese over each steak piles. Cover and let it melt for a minute or so. Then place toasted hoagie roll on each steak pile. Slide a spatula under the meat and flip the sandwiches one at a time. Serve immediately.

Note 1: Vegetables (onions and peppers) are optional and you can also use frozen ones, if you had some in the freezer as your meal prep routine.Note 2: To get super thin meat slices, freeze the steak for 30-45 minutes, or until mostly firm. Using a sharp knife, shave off thin slices against the grain. Be careful when you are cooking! Thinly sliced meat cooks in minutes.Make-Ahead Tip: Wrap the assembled sandwich in foil and refrigerate. When ready to serve, place the wrapped sandwich in the oven at 350F for 10-15 minutes , or until fully heated through and cheese is melted. It’s a great grab and go for a quick meal!
