Steak Sandwiches

Steak Sandwich

We love steak sandwiches at the Chaston house! They are a favorite lunch staple. And you don’t have to go to a restaurant to get a good one! You can actually make them at home.

I’m pretty sure that if I never have the opportunity to have another steak sandwich that I’d never smile again…so here’s the song “I’ll Never Smile Again” sung by Frank Sinatra.

Steak Sandwiches


  • 6 Scali rolls or Swiss Egg rolls
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 pound deli medium or rare roast beef, or pastrami, shaved—falling apart
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces provolone, white American, or white cheddar cheese


  1. Cut the rolls to have a top and bottom but hinged still on one side. Spread the inside of both top and bottom with an amount of cream according to preferred taste.
  2. Over medium heat, get a frying pan hot. Put one teaspoon olive oil on the hot frying pan. Put all vegetables on the frying pan and stir attentively for about two minutes.
  3. Rip deli meat and put it into the pan with vegetables. Saute just until meat is heated for between 1-2 minutes.
  4. Put hot meat and vegetable mixture on the cream cheese of both top and bottom of roll.
  5. Put a slice of provolone, white American, or white cheddar cheese on the bottom meat, cream cheese roll so that when the sandwich is closed, the meat on the top roll and the bottom roll melt it.
