Best Steak and Cheese Ever

I try to eat red meat once a week since people say it is good for you. I missed two weeks of red meat and I was craving a delicious, juicy, melt in your mouth steak and cheese. Instead of playing the guessing game with the delivery places around me or driving somewhere to get one, I made my own! Results: Never getting takeout steak and cheese again.

Steak and Cheese with Onions and Roasted Garlic Mayo
It was so hard to not dig in, hence the terrible picture

Ingredients (serves 2):

For the steak and cheese:
1lb of shaved steak, or ribeye cut super thin
2 Tbl oil
1 white onion, chopped into thin strips
Either 1 Knorr Homestyle Sock in beef flavor, or 1/2 a can of french onion soup
1 Cup cheese (I did 1 slice of american, as well as shredded sharp cheddar and mozzarella)
2 torpedo/sub rolls

For the roasted garlic mayo:
1/4 cup light mayo
2 cloves of garlic
1 tsp garlic powder

Directions for the mayo:
Take 2 cloves of garlic and keep the paper shell on. Cut off the tip of the smaller part. Place in a 450ยบ oven inside of a tinfoil ball with a little bit of oil for 30 minutes. When the garlic comes out, dice/mash it finely and combine with powder and mayo.

Directions for steak:
Turn on your broiler. Heat 2 Tbl oil in a large skillet on medium high. Add the steak and onions, as well as some cracked black pepper. Cook until the steak is cooked through and the juices have reduced (about 10-15 minutes). Add the stock/soup and cook for another 10-15 minutes until you have really melty, tender meat. 

Spread mayo on either side of the sub rolls. Add half the meat and onions to each sub. Lay on as much cheese as your heart desires and make sure to cover allllll that steak. Place in the broiler until the cheese is melted and the roll starts to get golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Enjoy :)

Again, not doing nutrition facts because this is a freebie.
