September and October are filled with fairs and festivals! I love how the smell of food just lingers in the air as soon as you arrive at one of these events. My go-to choice is usually pizza and some sort of fried dessert like Fried Oreos or a yummy funnel cake. My husband, on the other hand, usually heads straight for the cheesesteak line. He loves to get his cheesesteaks loaded with peppers, onions, mushrooms and lots of mayonnaise. In fact, there’s normally a glob of mayo running down his hand once he’s finished. Isn’t it so funny how when you are in the dating stage, men try to be so neat and proper and actually use napkins? And then once you get married you look at your man sitting across from you with mayo running down his arm, wondering if he should have been born in the caveman era. It’s okay though, I still love him!
- 32 oz. Beef Broth
- 12 oz. Ribbon noodles
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1/2 onion (sliced thin )
- 1 small pepper (sliced )
- 7 minute steaks
- 1 1/2 tsp. Steak Seasoning ( we like Montreal Brand)
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Garlic Powder to taste
- 1/2 C. Mayo
- 2 10.5 oz. cans Cream of Mushroom
- 1 C. Mozzarella Cheese (divided)
- In a large stock pot, add entire carton of beef broth. Continue filling the pot with water until you have enough to boil the noddles. Bring to a boil and cook noodles as directed using the recommended lower cook time for al dente noodles. (Since the noodles will be baked, you want to ensure that you do not overcook the noodles. Cooking the noodles at the lower al dente cooking time will prevent the noodles from getting soggy once they are baked) Reserve one ladle full of water and broth mixture used to cook the noodles. Drain the rest. Add noodles to a 13x9 casserole dish and set aside. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to a frying pan and sauté the peppers and onions. Add the reserved water and broth mixture and continue cooking until translucent. Tear up 7-minute steaks and add directly to frying pan. Cook until browned. Add steak seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir. Continue cooking for 30 seconds. Pour steak mixture on top of the noodles. Add mayonnaise and cream of mushroom soup. Mix directly in the pan. Add 1/2 cup of cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Take out of the oven add the other 1/2 cup of cheese and bake uncovered for an additional 10 minutes.
