30 Min


15 Min


smallish thin steaks
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
onion powder
1 1/2 tsp
dried oregano
6 Tbsp
olive oil divided
3 Tbsp
red wine (if you don't have any wine or prefer not to use wine, a citrus will do just fine, think lemon, lime juice)
large onion ciabatta hoagie rolls
1 large
red onion sliced
9 oz
fresh spinach ( 1 bag)
3/4 c
mediterranean herbed feta cheese (could use plain)
6 slice
fontina cheese (cut into 3 strips per slice)
1 1/2 c
shredded mozzeralla cheese
1 clove
garlic crushed/pressed
pinch of salt & pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375F. Using a foil lined baking sheet, season your steaks on both sides with the seasonings, drizzle with 1 tbls of olive oil and the wine, cover with foil and bake for approximately 12-15 minutes or till your liking.
Brush 2 tbls of olive oil on rolls. *Hoagie rolls are longer rolls and come in various flavors*.

Place rolls on your grill face down, when you have a nice grill mark on the rolls, take off the grill, set aside.
Place your sliced red onions on the grill to soften them and give them amazing grilled flavor!!

The steaks should be ready now, take them out of the oven and set them aside.
Let's saute our spinach shall we? In a large saute pan, over medium heat add the remaining 3 tbls of the extra virgin olive oil. When the oil is heated, add your crushed garlic. Once the garlic starts to soften add your spinach. Let the spinach wilt. Remove from heat. Season with a pinch of salt & pepper. Set aside.
Let's assemble:
To the bottom of the hoagie roll add your grilled onions, top with sauteed spinach. Add your herbed feta cheese.
Now place your steak over the toppings, and add your Fontina cheese extra feta and finally top with your mozzeralla cheese. Set aside and continue assembling the rest of the sandwiches.
Preheat oven to 375F. Place your steak sandwich open faced in the oven and bake till all toppings have been heated thru and your cheese has melted beautifully, about 8-10 minutes.
Cut in half (these are large rolls, could be easily cut into fourths for a party), transfer to plate, and get ready to dig in!!!!
