"These were delicious. It was a perfect blend of peppers and cheese with the steak. The sandwiches were enjoyed by everyone from 9 to 96!"

"If the meat was marinated first in a simple herbs & garlic etc. blend I think the sandwich would have had better flavor. My family thought this needed a marinara or a garlicky cheese sauce."

"I made this in my slow cooker as well. Very tasty and not that much work. My kids weren't crazy about it, but that just meant there were plenty of leftovers for the grown ups!"

"These were so delicious. My husband even had seconds! I followed the recipe, but put the meat and vegetables in my slow cooker and cooked on med./low for 4-5 hours. I also used Havarti cheese instead of cheddar. Will make these again and again!"
