35 minutes


  • 2teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1medium onion, sliced
  • 8ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1red or green bell pepper, sliced
  • 2tablespoons minced fresh oregano or 2 teaspoons dried
  • 1/2teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1pound sirloin steak, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1/4teaspoon salt
  • 1tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2cup sliced hot banana peppers (optional)
  • 1/4cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3slices reduced-fat provolone cheese (about 3 ounces)
  • 4whole-wheat buns, split and toasted


  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft and beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, bell pepper, oregano and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are wilted and soft, about 7 minutes. Add steak and salt and cook, stirring, until the meat is just cooked through, about 4 minutes.
  2. Reduce heat to low. Sprinkle the vegetables and meat with flour; stir to coat. Stir in banana peppers (if using) and broth; bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat; lay cheese slices on top of the vegetables and meat, cover and let stand until melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Divide into 4 portions with a spatula, leaving the melted cheese layer on top. Scoop a portion onto each bun and serve immediately.


If you have a little extra time, put the beef in the freezer for about 20 minutes to help make it easier to slice thinly.
