  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 heroes
  • 2 large whole grain sub rolls
  • 6 oz flank steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 green or yellow bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 slices reduced-fat provolone cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper pepper
  • Preferred herbs, such as dried oregano, red pepper flakes, or dried Italian seasoning

Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Scoop out some of the insides from the roll, place the roll on the baking sheet, and lightly toast under the broiler for 1 to 2 minutes. Place the roll on a plate and set aside. 

Liberally coat a skillet with oil spray and warm over medium heat. Add peppers and onion and sauté 8 to 10 minutes until soft and lightly browned. Make sure onions are nice and caramelized. Scoop vegetables onto a large plate or bowl and set aside.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on steak. Reapply oil spray to skillet and sauté steak. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until insides are no longer pink. Add cooked vegetables back to skillet and sauté together for an additional 1 to 2 minutes to bring all of the flavors together. Toss in Worcestershire sauce, preferred herbs and ground black pepper.

Place steak, peppers and onions on sub roll and top with a slice of provolone cheese. Place under broiler for 1 minute, or until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
