Cheese Steak Sandwiches Recipe

Loaded with lean top round steak and cheese, these low fat Philly cheese steak sandwiches don’t need artificial cheese sauce to taste great. These tasty sandwiches are packed with protein too.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 3/4 lb lean top round steak, very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 slices low fat white American cheese
  • 4 whole wheat pita breads (6 1/2-inch diameter)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400°.
  2. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes, or until onion is softened. Add steak slices and pepper and sauté for 10 minutes, or until browned. Stir in Worcestershire sauce and sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Turn off heat. Lay cheese slices over steak mixture and cover pan until cheese is melted.
  4. Cut a quarter off each pita to open the pocket. Fill each pita pocket with one-quarter of the steak mixture.
  5. Place stuffed pitas on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 2 to 3 minutes, or until pitas are warm. Serve immediately.
