Italian bread has a dense texture so it should work well for these hot broiled sandwiches. You can use any melted cheese for these sandwiches, such as American, mozzarella or Gouda.
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
- 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
- 1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
- 1⁄2 cup creamy Italian dressing
- 1 loaf Italian bread, halved lengthwise (12 inches long)
- 4 slices provolone cheese, thinly sliced
- In large skillet, cook ground beef, bell peppers and onion over medium-high heat, 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
- Stir in 1/4 cup of the dressing.
- Spread remaining 1/4 cup dressing on cut sides of bread.
- Place both halves, cut sides up, on ungreased large cookie sheet.
- Broil 4-6 inches from heat 3-5 minutes or until lightly toasted.
- Remove bread from broiler.
- Spread beef mixture on cut halves of bread.
- Top with cheese.
- Return to broiler, broil 4-6 inches from heat 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Cut each half into 2 pieces.
These are great! The only thing I did different was I used 2/3 C dressing instead of 1/2 C. Will be making this once a month for sure!
Like Legna, I've been making these since I found the recipe in one of those little recipe mags at the check-out. Since DH doesn't care for onions on his phillies (texture thing), I omit the onions, and add in onion powder at the end of cooking the meat and peppers. Very filling and a household fav. Thanks for posting this.
I've been making these for a few years now & my DH & I love them! I've also used fat-free swiss cheese or Italian blend shredded cheese. And for a different taste...ranch dressing. This was my DH's idea, I wasn't quite sure about this flavor on a philly. But after tasting it, it was very good.
