You will need a lot of napkins and drinks for this fabulous Cheesesteak Sliders. This is the perfect meal to make when you are craving for something meaty and cheesy! The list of ingredients might look long; but, rest assured it's a very simple meal to prepare. Either get your butcher to slice the steak thinly at the store or if you prefer, you can do it yourself at home with a good sharp knife. Just remember to freeze the meat for about 30 minutes before slicing. I prepared some meat seasoning for this recipe, however, if you don't have all the spices, you can substitute with your favorite steak blend spice from the store.
2 lbs (+-890 g) Rib-Eye Steaks, thinly sliced (about 1/8 to ¼ inch thick)
2 Red Bell Peppers, cut into strips
2 Green Red Peppers, cut into strips
2 Yellow Onion, thinly sliced
Shredded Provolone, Cheddar, or Mozzarella Cheese
12 Mini Burger Buns, toasted in a pan before serving
2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Paprika Powder
2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp Ground Black Pepper
1 Tbsp Sea Salt
Season the beef slices with 2 tsp of the steak seasoning and let it marinate for about 20 to 30 minutes. Divide the meat into 4 portions.
Heat a large cast-iron or non-stick pan over medium heat until hot. Add 2 Tbsp of olive oil, peppers, onions, and sauté until the onions are softened, about 6 to 7 minutes, divide into 4 portions, and set aside. Reheat the pan; add 1 portion of the beef, cook, and shred the meat with a spatula. Mix in 1 portion of the pepper and onion mixture, some seasoning, mix well, and splash a bit of water if the mixture seems dry. Then top with shredded cheese and cover with a lid until the cheese are melted. Divide the beef mixture among the buns, press together and serve hot.
