Philly Steak Sandwiches

*My husband requested steak sandwiches for Father's Day--I've only ever seen Philadelphia from the window of an Amtrack so I can't say if these are the real thing or not, but they are so good!  Definitely a keeper!  These were so flavorful, don't let the long list of spices scare you--they are all probably just sitting in your cupboard waiting for you to make these tonight!  All 5 plates in my house were polished clean.

Adapted from Allrecipes

1 1/2 lbs beef sirloin, cut into thin strips
3/4 t salt
3/4 t black pepper
3/4 t paprika
3/4 t chili powder
3/4 t onion powder
3/4 t garlic powder
3/4 t dried thyme
3/4 t dried marjoram
3/4 t dried basil
1 T Worcestershire sauce, or a little more
3 T vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced
1 green bell pepper, julienned
1 red bell pepper, julienned
6 ounces Provolone cheese
6 large hoagie rolls, split lengthwise

1.  Slice meat thinly (it helps to partially freeze the meat--for only 30 minutes or so).  Place beef in a large bowl.  In a small bowl, mix together spices.  Sprinkle over beef.  Sprinkle Worcestershire sauce over meat and marinate in fridge for 1-4 hours.
2.  Heat half of the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat  Saute beef to desired doneness, and remove from pan.  Heat the remaining oil in the skillet, and saute the onion and green pepper.
3.  Add meat back to skillet and place cheese over top to melt.
4.  Preheat oven on broiler setting.
5.  Butter the rolls and lightly brown under broiler.  Add meat mixture and enjoy!
