Bistro Steak Sammies

4 sub rolls ($1.33)
6 T. light Mayo (free after coupons)
1/4 tsp. oregano ($.05)
pinch of basil ($.05)
salt and pepper to taste ($.10)
1 lb. boneless chuck steak ($1.59)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder ($.05)
3 T. soy sauce ($.10)
6 slices Havarti cheese, sliced very thin ($.50)
1 red or sweet onion, sliced very thin ($.39)
1 red bell pepper, chopped into bite sized pieces ($.36)

In a small bowl, combine mayo with basil and oregano. Refrigerate.
In another small bowl, combine garlic powder with soy sauce. Season meat with salt and pepper and pour soy sauce mixture over steak. Let set 2 hours to overnight.

In a large, non stick skillet, add cooking spray and steak. Cook over medium high to brown each side, then turn down heat, cover, and continue cooking over medium low for 12-18 minutes - or until meat reaches your preferred doneness. Remove meat from pan when done and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Once meat has rested, slice meat thin on the diagonal.

Add onions to the pan you removed the beef from and cook over medium high heat until the onions carmelize, stirring occasionally.

Spread mayo mixture on toasted sub rolls, top with sliced steak, carmelized onions red bell pepper, then top with cheese.

Cost: $4.52
Cost per sammie: $1.13
