Italian Steak Subs

Tonight we had honkin’ huge steak sub sandwiches.

I used two fairly large New York strip steaks and rubbed them with olive oil. Next I sprinkled them liberally with onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper and Italian seasoning. I put the steaks into a Ziploc bag and into the fridge they went for 3 hours.

After 3 hours, I turned the Ninja 3-in-1 to STOVETOP HIGH and added a few tablespoons of olive oil. I sautéed  some diced onion and minced garlic for several minutes and then removed them from the pot and set them aside.

A little bit more olive oil was poured into the pot and the steaks were lightly browned, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.

I covered the rack with foil and put the steaks, onions and garlic onto the rack and into the Ninja pot.

Next I did something I never thought I’d do to a New York strip steak. I put the Ninja 3-in-1 to SLOW COOK LOW for 3 hours. Yes, I did. I wanted some really tender beef that I could shred. I did not add any additional liquid.

After 3 hours the meat was ready to be taken off the rack and put directly into the Ninja pot. There were a lot of really nice juices, actually a bit more than I wanted. I turned the Ninja to STOVETOP MEDIUM and reduced some of the liquid by boiling it away.

I shred the beef and stirred it well to combine the juices, onions and garlic. Nice.

I sliced up several Mezzetta peppers (hot chili and peperoncini) and some fresh basil.

The hoagie rolls were lightly toasted and the sandwich was assembled with the steak, the toppings, Provolone cheese and a light layer of  Beaver brand cream horseradsh.

    WOW! Now, that’s a ‘sangwich,’ as they say in New Jersey. ..They say it, I don’t.
    I love every step of this, Mrs. Beans! Just one question:
    Where can I find a chiffonade? L-O-L.
