Easy Family Style Cheese Steak

Summer is all about having extra free time to play.  This huge sub sandwich is super easy to make, and even easier to enjoy with the entire family.  I was able to purchase all of the ingredients for this meal at Walmart.

Serves 4 to 6 people


1 yellow onion, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 packet of McCormick Au Jus Gravy Mix
3 cups of  cold water
French bread
8 slices of Swiss cheese
1 package (7 ounces) of  fully cooked Beef Fajita strips 


In a large skillet, add your sliced onion, bell pepper, Au Jus Gravy mix, and cold water. Stir, bring to a boil,  then cover and simmer on low for 20 minutes, or until veggies are tender to your liking.  Toss in your fully cooked fajita beef strips, and stir to coat,  then turn off heat. Slice your large loaf of fresh French bread in half. Place loaf on a large cookie sheet.  Top bottom loaf with your beef and veggies (not gravy), using a slotted spoon.  Serve the Au Jus gravy on the side. Top your meat and veggies with Swiss cheese, and top loaf of bread.  Then place under broiler for 1 to 3 minutes, until bread is toasty on top, and cheese is melted. Slice and enjoy with your Au Jus for dipping.
