I have been a cheese steak lover for many years. Living not too far outside of Philadelphia, our family has tried the big names, Gino's, Pat's, Tony Luke's. From pricey steak house cheese steaks to food carts. Cheese steak subs, filled pretzels, loaded pizzas and even cheese steak salad. We made it a fun mission to sample the best and the most diverse places to find a cheese steak. This recipe is great where there will be a gathering of guys or teens, and especially great for an upcoming Father's Day picnic. I'm a basic kind of gal, a little garlic, salt and pepper on thinly sliced steak, a good cheese and an incredible bread makes one of the best sandwiches around, whether it's from a high end chef or a diner. I created these fun cheese steak filled bread cups to bring along with us for a graduation party this spring. They were a big hit at the party, in less then 10 minutes they were gone and my friends raved about how tasty they were. It's not always easy to make a cheese steak into a single serving, but these cups are just perfect for single size proportions. Crispy yet tender bread, filled with lots of cheese and steak goodness, they are easy to hold and take a big bite out of!
First we start with a bag of Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls.
We will thaw them out on a plate. You will need one dinner roll per serving. I used 12 dinner rolls for the amount of cheese steak mixture I had.
After thawing out the dinner rolls, we will shape our cups.
Grab each dinner rolls and flatten it, then begin to stretch it out by pulling gently around the outside of the dough. We are making the dough flat like little pizzas.
To make the dough into a cup, spray the bottom of a cupcake pan with cooking spray and place the dough onto the cups. I experimented and did 6 on one tray by covering every other one, I also did one tray of all 12, and that tray came out just as nicely and the dough did not stick together like I thought they might.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until your cups are lightly browned. Cool.
Chop up 1 each small onion, green pepper and red pepper. I like to add the red pepper for sweetness and color.
Slice 1 pound of thinly sliced eye round steak into strips. I freeze the meat about 15 minutes first to make it easier to slice.
In a cooking pan, add 2 tablespoons olive oil and saute your veggies until tender.
Once the veggies are tender, add your thinly sliced meat, salt and pepper and 1 tablespoon chopped garlic.
Lightly saute the meat until it is just barely cooked but no pink shows.
These cups are just barely browned.
Take a slice of provolone cheese, tear it up and place in the bottom of the cup. This helps keep the bread from getting too wet from moisture from the meat.
Fill the cup with the steak mixture and add a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese to the top.
Place your filled cups on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, and heat in the oven at 400 degrees until the cheese is melted and the meat mixture is hot.
Serve warm. Each cup is one serving.
