Teriyaki Steak Sandwiches

Servings 6 servings


  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak trimmed
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 1 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup white button mushrooms sliced
  • 6 hoagie rolls halved lengthwise and lightly toasted
  • 3/4 cup part-skim Mozzarella cheese shredded, divided


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate flank steak for at least 30 minutes (see recipe). In a medium bowl, whisk together first 7 ingredients (soy sauce through black pepper). Place steak in a large zipper-topped plastic bag and pour soy sauce mixture on top; seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat outdoor or indoor grill to MEDIUM-HIGH. Grill marinated steak for 5 to 8 minutes per side, depending on thickness and desired level of doneness; remove from grill and set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • Coat a large skillet with a little olive oil over medium heat; add onion, bell pepper and mushrooms and cook until onions are translucent, bell pepper is tender-crisp and mushrooms are just cooked through (5 to 7 minutes).
  • Thinly slice steak across the grain (diagonally) and serve in hoagies evenly sprinkled with Mozzarella. Top with sautéed vegetables and enjoy!
