We customized this Philly-fave with Amish blue cheese and a red wine reduction. You can do it, too.
What you need:
1 Vidalia onion (other types work, too)
2 tbs of butter (we used Earth Balance, so our sauce was vegan)
3/4 cup beef broth
1/2 cup red wine (we used a $6 Cabernet)
1/2 cup blue cheese (ours was Amish)
Panko bread crumbs
1 steak hoagie, just steak and roll
What to do:
How to chop
Chop onion in thin slices. Cut one tablespoon butter and add to saucepan over medium high heat. Melt and add onions, cooking until tender (about three minutes).
Add broth and wine, increase heat to boil and leave to reduce (in other words, allow the mixture to boil, stirring occasionally, until it decreases in volume to about 1/2 cup). Remove from heat.
Amish Blue Cheese
In a small bowl, combine blue cheese and bread crumbs — anywhere from 1/2 cup to a cup should do
Panko and Blue Cheese crumble
Using your fingers, mix the cheese and crumbs until you’ve created a crumble (see photo). Set aside.
Call your favorite pizza place. Order a steak hoagie — like a cheesesteak, without cheese. We went delivery, but if you want to pick up, now is the time to go. Set oven to broil. Prepare baking sheet.
add butter to reduction
Add remaining butter to a skillet (or back into the saucepan), add reduction, stir and let boil about two minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Be careful not to burn, and remove from heat.
undo for the redo
Remove steak from the sandwich and place on one half of the baking sheet. Set the open hoagie roll on the other half of the sheet.
Sprinkle steak with crumble. Broil about two minutes, remove and replace steak in roll. Add sauce.
You're so Philadelphia, but you're you. Get it?
