CHEESE STEAK

Cheese steak ini biasanya dimakan ama soft hoggie rolls/ roti yang panjang, tapi karena punyanya burger buns, ya.. buat suami aku sajikan ama burger buns, dan karena aku lebih suka kentang, aku bikin aja kentang bakar/grill potatoes buat makan ama si cheese steak ini.

INGREDIENTS :
2 to 2 1/2 pound strip loin, trimmed
Olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
burger buns, split
Provolone Sauce, recipe follows
Caramelized Onions, recipe follows
Sauteed Peppers, recipe follows

Place steak in freezer for 30 to 45 minutes; this makes it easier to slice the meat. Remove the meat from the freezer and slice very thinly.
Heat griddle or grill pan over high heat. Brush steak slices with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 45 to 60 seconds per side.
Place several slices of the meat on the bottom half of the buns, spoon some of the cheese sauce over the meat, and top with onions, and peppers.

Provolone Sauce:
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 cups whole milk, heated
1 cup grated aged provolone cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the warm milk, and cook, whisking constantly until thickened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the mixture from the heat and whisk in the provolone and Parmesan until combined; season with the salt and pepper.

Caramelized Onions :
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoons canola oil
3 large Spanish onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Heat butter and oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper, and cook slowly until golden brown and caramelized, stirring occasionally, approximately 30 to 40 minutes.

Sauteed Peppers :
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 poblano peppers, thinly sliced
2 Cubano peppers, thinly sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in medium saute pan over high heat. Add the peppers and cook until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
