This is very easy to prepare. The caramelized onions and peppers gives your sandwich a great look besides a great flavor. The kids even liked the onions. "Cheese Whiz", boy I just don't think it would do justice to a good cut of meat, so I used the provolone cheese. One thing I did different was not to cut my rib eye into thin slices. The butcher had cut my rib eye into 1/4-1/2 inch thick steaks so that is how I left them and fried them that way topped with the onions and pepper. I spread some butter on the Kaiser rolls and brown them in a skillet. Thanks for a great recipe! I sure hope more people try this.
