Phily Cheese Steak Sandwiches

Tonight's quick dinner came from a Cooking Light Fast and Fresh recipe.  Even though the sandwich looks decadent it was actually just under 400 calories which makes it a delicious treat.  This was really a quick and easy recipe to make as well.

Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches
Makes 4 servings

Cheddar Cheese Sauce (recipe follows)
3/4 pound boneless sirlon steak
Cooking spray
2 cups total sliced green, yellow and red bell pepper strips
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 (2 1/2-ounce) hoagie rolls

Prepare Cheddar Cheese Sauce

While sauce cooks, cut steak diagonally across the grain into 1/8-inch thick slices. 

Heat a large cast iron skillet 2 minutes over high heat.  Coat pan with cooking spray.  Add steak, bell pepper, and onion to pan.  Sprinkle steak and vegetables with black pepper; saute 5 minutes or until meat is browned and vegetables are tender.  Drain.

Fill each roll with about 3/4 cup steak mixture.  Spoon about 3 tablespoons Cheddar Cheese Sauce over each sandwich.  Serve immediately.

Cheddar Cheese Sauce
About 3 tablespoons per serving

1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup 1% low-fat milk
1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder

Place flour in a small saucepan.  Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until smooth.  Cook over medium-high heat until thick (about 3 minutes), stirring frequently.  Remove from heat; add cheese, stirring until cheese melts.  Stir in salt, pepper,  and onion powder.
