Teriyaki Steak Sandwich

Back in the early 1980's I worked in North Hollywood there was this little hole in the wall sandwich place that was between two buildings on Laurel Canyon Blvd.  They made the best Teriyaki Steak Sandwiches.  Sadly they are  long gone.  I have been craving that sandwich and tried my best to recreate something I haven't had in over 20 years.  It is pretty darn close to what I remember.

1 1/2 to 2 lb Top Round Steak
Teriyaki Sauce
olive oil
3 onions, sliced
1 large orange bell pepper, sliced
2 jalapeños, remove seeds and slice
8 slices of sharp swiss cheese
4 large rolls
salt and pepper

Put steak in the freezer for 1 hour, using a sharp knife cut thin slices, salt and pepper, place steak in a zip lock bag.  Pour enough teriyaki sauce in the bag to coat the steak slices.  The steak only needs to marinate for an hour since it is cut so thin.  While the steak is marinating sauté the onions and peppers in olive oil until golden.  In a hot skillet cook the meat small amount at a time.  After all the steak is cooked add enough for one sandwich back to the skillet, add some of the onion mixture and toss together.  Arrange the steak and peppers as you would add to the roll.  Top with two slices of cheese and top with some more of the onion mixture.  Cover skillet for the cheese to melt evenly.  Using a flipper scoop up the meat mixture and add to the bun and serve. 

Note:  The teriyaki sauce I used had sesame seeds this is optional

Until Next Time,
