Grilled Steak Sandwich

6 large cloves of garlic, smashed
1/4 cup of EVOO
2 tablesponns balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sause
1 tablespoon soy sause
2 teaspoons honey (give or take)
1teaspoon koser salt (or if you have a favorite steak seasoning, substitute that for the salt)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pound top round London broil or a nice top sirloin with little marbeling.

One red onion
one green pepper
small container fresh portobello mushrooms
1/2 stick butter
provalone or swiss cheese slices
6 hoagie style buns
garlic powder & marjorine for the buns

Mix the marinade ingredients together in a bowl & put in a gallon ziplock bag. Place the steak in the bag, seal & carefully slosh the marinade around until all of the ingredients have soaked the steak. Allow this to marinade at least a few hours or over night. Remove the bag from the refrigerator about an hour before you cook it to bring the steak to room temperature, but don't open the bag yet

Slice the onion, green pepper, & mushrooms & sautee in a skillet with the butter until almost soft but still slightly crunchy then set aside

Pull the steak from the bag & place on a pre-heated gas or charcoal grill. Cook for about 5 minutes per side or until the steak is rare. It is ok to have the steak a little rare at this point as it will get cooked again in a minute

While the steak is cooking place generous amounts of butter & garlic powder on the insides of the hoagie, then set aside

Cut the steak on the bias (diagonal cuts) in very thin strips.

While you are cutting the steak, have a flat iron skillet on the grill pre heating. (You may also need to get the sauteed vegies warmed up again)

Once the steak is cut & the flat iron is hot put 4 or 5 strips of the steak down on the grill, followed by some of the vegies, then covered with cheese. Cover all of this with a metal mixing bowl or something to keep the heat inside.

Place 2 halves of the hoagies down on a spare spot of the flat iron to toast them. This won't take long, so keep an eye on your bread.

When your bread is toasted, put on a plate, then add the steak/vegie/cheese mix from the flat iron.

Repeat 5 more times

Jambalaya - Serves 100

8 Lbs. Onions
1/2 Bunch Celery
6 Bell Peppers
16 Lbs. Pork (Boston Butt is best)
16 Lbs. Smoke Sausage (Richards is best)
12 Lbs. Rice (I like Parboiled rice)
1 Small jar garlic
Kitchen Bouquet (Use what you need to get the color you want)
Seasoning to your taste
Black pepper
Cajun blend (Tony Chacherie, Slap your Mama, what ever you like)
Green hot sauce

Start with pork and brown also add some seasoning at this time, you will finish seasoning when water is added. As the liquid gets low add sausage and continue to cook. Should take app. 45 minutes, longer if meat is thick, if meat starts to stick add small amount of water to avoid sticking but only ifnecessary. Add vegetables and saute, this will take another 45 minutes; add garlic when veggies are app. half cooked. Add rice and water (at 2 waters to one rice); also add kitchen bouquet and season to taste. HINT: Taste the water now to see how much seasoning to add, pepper should be as you like, salt should be quite salty because the rice will absorb quite a bit. Boil most of the water out (about 30 to 40 minutes), lower the heat and cover. Leave covered for 30 minutes stirring once or twice. It is important to leave covered at the end to let the rice absorb all the moisture.
