My family loved this sandwich! I used Marsala wine and whole wheat club rolls. This recipe is delicious, quick, easy and perfect for a busy weeknight night dinner.

I used something called blade steaks and trimmed them well. I cooked them really hot and fast, the 2 minutes suggested. Then proceeded with the rest of the recipe but had Marsala instead of Madeira wine and yellow peppers from my garden. It was great! Even my husband, who is not much of a meat eater, loved it. I served on Pepperidge Farm whole wheat toasted buns and had a kale dish on the side. Yum!

While I usually love the recipes I fix from CL, my husband and I were really disappointed in this one. There just wasn't any flavor, kind of dry, and definitely too dry to put on ciabatta bread...won't be making this one again.

Yum! This only took 30 minutes to get on the table - a fast, tasty dinner. Substitutions: beef broth instead of the wine, frozen sliced bell peppers instead of fresh, Jack cheese instead of the light cheese (forgot to buy it!). The sandwich had a very nice flavor and I like that there are lots of veggies and not a huge amount of meat. A great use for sweet onions! Next time I'll serve these with sweet potato fries.

My husband and I loved this recipe--we kicked the heat up a notch by adding half a minced jalapeno with the garlic. I thought the dish was so flavorful that I was able to skip the hamburger bun--which meant less calories!! I'm not sure what the first reviewer used as her flavorings in the dish, but with the cheese, madeira, jalapeno, garlic, and sweet vidalia onion, i thought this was a smash.

Easy weeknight supper. Put steak in the freezer til firm, to make it easier to thin-cut. Made to recipe up to the cheese, subbed provolone for cheddar. Hollowed-out the top halves of the rolls, put the cheese in the top halves, put the hot steak mixture on the cheese (sorta like filling a shallow bowl, to catch the juices). Then put the bottoms on and turned it right-side up. Ta-da!

My meat loving boyfriend asked when I could make this again. This will become a staple recipe in our home. I substituted Marsala for Madeira, and used shallots instead of sweet onions because I needed to use them.

I might have given this 4 stars had I followed the ideas given in the reviews. My steak slices could have been thinner as well as the onions and green peppers. Onions would have caramelized better and green peppers would have been crisper. Used mozzarella which I think was a better choice because we could really taste the meat and juices and the dish reheated beautifully. Reduced fat cheddar didn't sound appealing. Like the idea by carolfitz to hollow out the ciabatta. Good idea to add more wine and Worcestershire for juices. I used reconstituted Porcini, I think, mushrooms. It was easy and my husband really liked it so I'll try it again with the modifications.

My family raved over this sandwich! I didn't have green peppers or mushrooms so I didn't add those, just the onions and garlic. I used white wine (pinot grigio) and added a bit more so that we'd have some yummy juices. Same with the Worcestershire sauce. I don't care for melted cheese so each family member added a slice of cheddar with the hot meat. I used ciabbatta rolls and lightly buttered and grilled them on a griddle. Served with pan-roasted potatoes and a salad. Delish!

Quick fix and nice basic flavor. You could add or subtract to satisfy your tastes.
