Cheese steak sandwich with tomato and guacamole


I was originally naming this recipe beef strip sub with cheese and guacamole. As I was searching the interwebs for info on subs, I came across an image of something very similar to my beef strip sub with cheese and guacamole. Minus the tomato and guacamole. It’s called a cheese steak and it seems to be a favourite in Philadelphia.

I can’t stop humming Bruce Springsteen’s Streets of Philadelphia. Do do do di doo doo.

Soft rolls with thin slices of ripe tomato, browned beef strips and melted cheddar topped with a spicy guacamole. Call it what you will, it is an all-star sandwich that will quickly become a family favourite.



300 g beef strips

4 long bread rolls

1 tomato, thinly sliced

Handful of grated cheddar cheese

Guacamole (I used the spicy kind)


1. Fry the beef strips in a splash of olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste as you go along.

2. Cut the rolls lengthwise, but not all the way through.

3. Arrange a few slices of tomato on each roll along with some of the beef strips.

4. Top the rolls with cheese and grill in the oven until the cheese starts to melt.

5. Serve with a dollop of guacamole and some tabasco or sriracha sauce.
