Smothered Steak Sandwiches


If you read this blog regularly you know I love sandwiches.  There is something so satisfying about biting into a crusty piece of bread overflowing with meat and veggies.  These steak sandwiches were so delicious and easy to make.  And to top it off, for such a filling meal there are only 330 calories per serving (according to the magazine in which I found the recipe).  

That’s 330 calories of colorful nutrient packed peppers, lean juicy protein, and crusty bread perfection! 

Smothered Steak Sandwiches

  • 3 bell peppers (colors of your choice, I used 1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 red), sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into circles
  • 1  14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 pound lean steak (cuts such as flank or swiss work well and are reasonably priced)
  • 1 whole wheat whole grain baguette, sliced in half

Spray a skillet with cooking spray. Place peppers in skillet and cook for about 5 minutes, or until tender.  Add onions and cook until all vegetables are tender and slightly brown, about 5 minutes.  Add tomatoes and bring to a simmer.  Cook until mixture thickens, about 8 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, spray a grill pan with cooking spray and set to medium/high heat.   Season both sides of steak with salt and pepper.  Place steak on grill pan and cook until desired doneness (turning once).  Remove from pan, place on cutting board and slice into thin strips (cutting against the grain).

Place sliced steak on top of baguette and top with pepper and onion mixture.  Serve immediately.
