Millionaire's Cheesesteak

A Philly cheesesteak is thinly-sliced chopped and pressed beef round, cooked on a big, flat grill with some provolone cheese, typically also fried up with chopped onions and sharp green peppers. It is served on a hoagie roll, sometimes with mayonnaise or alternatively with olive oil or Italian salad dressing. The verdict: "Yum."

A millionaire's cheesesteak -- what my folks prepared for dinner tonight -- is warmed prime rib, with gruyére or emmenthaler cheese, roasted and mild red peppers and sautéed Bermuda onions, served on a fresh baugette toasted and brushed with garlic butter. The verdict: "Knocks your socks off."
