Personalize This


Melt the Cheez Whiz® in a double boiler or in the microwave and keep warm until ready to use
Heat an iron skillet or a non stick pan over medium heat
Add 3 tablespoons of oil to the pan and sauté the onions to desired doneness
Remove the onions
Add the remaining oil and sauté the slices of meat quickly on both sides
Return onions to pan and heat all ingredients through.
spread Whiz on rolls. If you like extra cheese drizzle on top of steak once added to the roll, but you MUST spread the whiz on the roll to ensure you get a bite of cheese with every bite of meat.
divide meat mixture between rolls
Put on the theme song to the first Rocky movie and enjoy!
NOTE--If you decide to use the peppers and mushrooms, add them all back to the meat to heat through prior to plating.
