This is a fantastic recipe. I found a similar recipe online several years ago. I don't eat red meat so I use a vegetarian "Philly steak" replacement. It's one of my favorite meals.

My mom has made this in the past and we all loved it. Great to see it on here. Thanks for sharing.

I had to print out this recipe too because it looks good too. I will let you know when I have tried both of the recipes you've added.

I have been making this for years. I made it up one day when I was tired of the same old boring salad. The only thing is I use real steak because we think the steak ums are disgusting tasting. It sure is a great getaway from plain old salad!!

I love cheese steaks they are so comforting I don't eat alot of bread products I try to stay away from bread..most of my foods are eaten like a salad prepared or blended in a blender I make my own soups with vegetables and just add water or green tea and spices and left to heat up in a crock-pot for the day..Lynn24

This sounds so good :-) I LOVE cheese steak and wondered how I could eat it without the bread and all the carbs that go with it.

One suggestion to save 14g of fat though is to use a non-stick pan for your veggies. I sometimes use an olive oil spray to give a bit of flavor. Also, Mrs Dash really adds flavor and if it was too coarse for you before, it now comes in a table use texture so it is more like pepper.

Thanks for sharing…yummm I know what is on the menu tomorrow.
