Vegetable Steak Sandwiches

Servings 6 people


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 large loaf Italian bread sliced in half lengthwise
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper de-seeded, de-ribbed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 pounds beef flank steak trimmed
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim Mozzarella cheese divided
  • teriyaki sauce to taste


  • Preheat grill. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Lightly brush the insides of each bread half with this mixture (go easy—you don’t have much oil!); set aside.
  • To the remaining oil mixture, add mushrooms, bell pepper and onion; toss to coat thoroughly. Grill steak for 5 to 8 minutes per side or until the desired level of doneness is achieved; transfer to a cutting board and allow it to rest for 10 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain (diagonally).
  • Meanwhile, place vegetables in a grill basket or on a grill tray; grill for 5 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender-crisp; remove from grill and keep warm.
  • Now place bread slices on the grill, oiled sides down; lightly brown for about 30 seconds; turn, then evenly sprinkle the bottom half with 1 cup of the Mozzarella, then with hot grilled vegetables, then steak slices, then remaining Mozzarella.
  • Cover with the top half then slice into sandwiches. Each person can add a little teriyaki sauce to their taste.
