High-quality white American cheese melts beautifully with this recipe. As a variation, you can make a Vermont cheese steak with sliced apples and sharp cheddar cheese.

Serves: 4


  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 1⁄2 lbs. boneless top sirloin steak
  • 4 oz. white American cheese, shredded or sliced
  • 4 hero rolls (6 inches), split


  • Preheat the grill. Grease a grill basket.
  • Toss the peppers and onions with the oil. Add to the grill basket and grill until soft, about 10 minutes.
  • Season the steak with salt and pepper. Grill the steak on one side for about 4 minutes; then turn and grill on second side for another 5 minutes, or until cooked to desired doneness. Move the steak to a warm plate and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice into thin slices.
  • Put the rolls on the grill for 2 minutes to toast. Remove from grill and assemble sandwiches, by dividing steak, peppers, onions, and cheese between the rolls. Return to the grill, cover, cook 2 minutes until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
