Philly Cheese Steak Quesadilla

We found some beef steaks today labeled "Chicken Steak". We had never seen it before. The price was right so we decided to give it a try. I wanted Philly Cheese Steak Sammies but didn't have hoagie buns. Flour tortilla's worked great. You may need a fork and knife though.

This would be great on a hoagie too.

And if you have any leftover cheese sauce, save it for mac n cheese.

Hope you enjoy!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
STEAK: Slice steak in thin strips, place in bowl, add seasonings and drizzle with olive oil; set aside.

NOTE: Meat will slice quicker and easier if partially frozen.
2
I used a cast iron griddle to grill steak. A heavy skillet should work just as well.

Heat griddle or skillet over medium high heat. Add meat in batches; cook for about 45 seconds or until meat is just browned. Turn once during grilling process to brown on both sides. Remove from griddle and add to gravy mixture; cook for 15 to 20 minutes in gravy.
3
GRAVY SAUCE: Bring broth to a boil over a medium heat.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter in microwave. Start with 30 seconds on high, then zap another 15 seconds if not melted.

Whisk flour into melted butter; pour into boiling broth. Salt and pepper to taste if desired. Whisk until creamy; reduce heat. Add meat and cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes. NOTE: you want most of the liquid to cook out so that you have a very thick gravy.
4
VEGGIES: Add olive oil to large skillet. Add onions, peppers and mushroom and saute over medium heat until tender. Salt and pepper to taste.
5
CHEESE SAUCE: Add butter to sauce pan; melt butter over medium heat. Once butter foams add flour and whisk to make a paste.
6
Heat milk and cream in microwave until warm; gradually add to butter and flour mixture. Bring mixture to a boil and whisk until thickened.
7
Add cheese and ground pepper; stir until cheese has completely melted. Reduce heat to "warm" until ready to use.
8
Grill flour tortilla's over meduim heat in a skillet or griddle sprayed with PAM until they start browning. Will need to lift with spatula to check them.
9
To assemble, place meat mixture on the bottom tortilla, spoon some of the cheese sauce over the meat, and top with the mushrooms, onions, and peppers; top with 2nd tortilla.
