👨‍🍳How to Make Leftover Beef Tenderloin or Steak Sandwiches

  1. Start by trimming your leftover tenderloin or steak into ¼ inch slices across the grain.
  2. Next, slice the onion and bell peppers.
  3. Coat the trimmed meat with Worcestershire sauce, crushed or minced garlic, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper (optional).
  4. Heat oil in a preheated griddle or large stovetop pan, then add the trimmed onion and peppers.
  5. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. Then, add the meat and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Serve the flavorful mixture on a toasted sub bun and top with provolone cheese.

✔️Tips for Perfect Sandwiches

  • Estimate about ¼ pound of meat per sandwich.
  • Cut the beef across the grain into slices approximately ¼ inch thick, and trim it while doing so.
  • For every 1 to 1 ½ pounds of meat, use two peppers and one medium onion. If you have more meat, add more peppers and use a larger onion.
  • The cooking time of the vegetables depends on your preference. Cook them until they are tender yet still slightly crunchy.
  • Before adding the meat, coat it with seasonings and heat it up alongside the vegetables, about halfway through their cooking time.
  • If your griddle or pan isn’t large enough to accommodate all the ingredients, cook the vegetables first, set them aside on a covered plate, then heat up the meat. Combine them when serving.
  • For a classic Philly cheesesteak version, melt provolone cheese into the hot meat and vegetable mixture before adding it to the sandwiches.
