MAKES 4 Servings - PREP TIME 15 min - COOK TIME 10 min - TOTAL TIME 25
¼ tsp (1 mL) each garlic powder, salt, and pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil, divided
1 lb (500 g) fast fry beef round steaks (inside round)
1 medium white onion, cut in half, and then thinly sliced
2 cups (500 mL) sliced button mushrooms
½ green bell pepper, thinly sliced
½ yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 whole-wheat French baguette
1 clove of garlic, cut in half
1 cup (250 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese
Position the oven rack in the top third of the oven. Preheat the oven’s broiler. In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Place fast fry steaks in a single layer on a plate and pierce all over both sides with a fork to tenderize the beef. Season beef with half of the salt and pepper mixture. In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tsp (5 mL) canola oil over medium-high. Cook beef for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the skillet and set aside on a clean plate.
In the same skillet, heat 2 tsp (10 mL) canola oil over medium-high heat. Cook the onions for 2 minutes, stir in mushrooms, peppers, and the remaining salt and pepper mixture and cook for another minute stirring often.
Cut baguette into 4 equal size pieces. Slice horizontally and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet open sides facing up. Rub each baguette with garlic. Place baking sheet in the oven under the broiler to toast the bread, about 1 minute. Remove from the oven; set the four baguettes “tops” off to the side for later use. Layer the remaining four baguette slices on the baking sheet evenly with steak (slice the steak into smaller strips if needed), mushroom mixture, and mozzarella cheese. Broil for another minute or until cheese is melted. Take out of the oven and top with the other half of the baguette. Enjoy right away or wrap in parchment to pack for lunch!
