Awesome Cheese Steak

I don't know many that shy away from a tender, juicy cheese steak sub.  There are only two basic tips for one pleasing Cheese Steak.  Tender meat full of flavor, and one nice soft bun. I happen to use a wheat bun with sesame seeds that I found on the discount rack. My daughter prefers to use a nice warm slice of French Loaf about six inches long and lightly toasted.  For an amazing flavor I used grilled steak.  Pepper Jack cheese gave the sub a zesty taste. Make sure to compliment the meal with your favorite cheese. This will make two sandwiches.

1 LB cooked Shredded Beef Steak
2 TBS Olive Oil
1 Cup Chopped Onion
1 Cup Chopped Green Pepper
2 Cloves Minced Garlic
1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
4 Slices Pepper Jack Cheese
Honey Mustard

2 6" Hoagie Sandwich Buns

Heat Olive Oil in sauté pan.  Stir in onion, green pepper and garlic.  Cook for 5 minutes stirring constantly.  Add meat and Worcestershire sauce.  Cover and let simmer.  Lightly  toast your choice of buns in heated oven for about 2 to 3 minutes.  Remove and spread honey mustard on the bottom bun.  Top with beef.  Split Pepper Jack cheese down the middle and place both slices on top of the sandwich.  Place back in oven until cheese is melted.

My husband was at it again.  What was I suppose to do?  He grilled so much meat I had to get my mind working fast to come up with something new.  These crunch corn shelled taco were so good, and ready to eat in only minutes.  I used a little of the different meat on each one, even combined some on a few.  The pollo and picante chorizo were the best.  Once you try a taco full of chopped grilled filete you might think a little differently about the traditional taco.  I made my own shells, but lets face it.  All yo want to do is get them on the table.  Don't hesitate to buy some. This will make a dozen tacos.

12 Corn Taco Shells
3 Cups Smoked Meat (I  used Pollo, Puerco, Chorizo and Filete)

Toppings (your choice)

Shredded Lettuce
Diced Tomato
Sliced Jalapeno
Sliced Avocado
Shredded Cheese (Taco blend)
Sour Cream

Make sure to heat the shells.  This makes them good and crunchy.  Place about 2 TBS of Shredded Lettuce and 1 TBS Diced Tomatoes in the bottom of each shell (more if you like).  Add a good sprinkle of Shredded Cheese, your choice of Meat and finish with a nice thick slice of Avocado.  Top off with Jalapeno and Sour Cream if you prefer.  There you have it something quick and delicious.
