An upscale version of a traditional favorite.



  • 1 12 oz strip steak, cooked to medium rare (we used a leftover steak)
  • 1/2 C peppers, julienned
  • 1/2 C onions, julienned
  • 1/2 C sliced mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/4 C milk
  • 6 oz light beer (using lager is best)
  • 1 C shredded velveeta cheese
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • pinch garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 - 7" hoagie rolls


  2. In a large sauté pan, melt butter, then add garlic powder and then flour. Cook over medium heat until butter is completely melted. Toss in flour and cook for 1 minute. Add milk and whisk until thick like pancake batter.
  3. While whisking, add cheese and beer and stir until cheese sauce is smooth. Add smoked paprika and then move off heat.
  4. In a separate sauté pan, add oil and vegetables and cook over medium high heat for approx. 5 minutes and then add steak and remove from heat. Toss to combine and warm steak.
  5. Slice hoagie rolls and divide steak and veggie mixture and then top with cheese sauce. Salt and pepper to taste.
