Short Rib Cheesesteak Subs

I’m kind of picky about my cheesesteak sandwiches. We have one sub shop on the island that has the best rendition. A few times I’ve tried to recreate them at home – they weren’t good. I suspect that it was the cut of beef I was using – usually a New York strip or ribeye, and they were just usually too chewy no matter how thinly I sliced.

Then I came across this recipe in last month’s Cooking Light (which, by the way…did anyone else dog-ear 92% of the magazine like I did?) and couldn’t wait to try it. I’d come across a 12 lb box of boneless short ribs at my local restaurant supply for an extremely reasonable price so it was perfect timing. The beef is seared and then rests while you get your peppers and onions going for topping.

And, the cheese sauce. Sharp cheddar and Dijon mustard in an ooey-gooey sauce? It doesn’t get any better than that kids. Pour any leftovers into a little serving dish on the side – perfect for dipping fries into. Or, just eat it with a spoon – I promise not to hold it against you…
