Applebee's Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

1  beef round tip steak, 1/8 by 1/4 inch thick, pound if necessary
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3 tablespoons light soy sauce, divided
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 medium red onion, cut into thin wedges
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup jarred roasted red pepper, cut into strips
1/4 cup dry red wine
8 slices muenster, swiss cheese mozzarella cheese
4 (6 inch) crusty rolls or 4 (6 inch) hoagie rolls

Stack beef steaks; cut lengthwise in half and then crosswise into 1 inch strips. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in non stick skillet over medium high heat until hot.
Stir fry the beef strips and garlic (1/2 batch at a time), 1 to 2 minutes or until the outside surface is no longer pink. Remove from skillet and season with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and pepper.

Reduce heat to medium. Add 2 teaspoons oil to pan (if needed), and stir fry the onions for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes or until veggies are tender. Add red pepper, wine and remaining 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and return beef to skillet. Heat through.

Pile the beef mixture onto the bottoms of the rolls. Top each with 2 slices cheese. Place on cookie sheet with tops next to bottoms cut side up, and broil just til cheese is melted and inside tops are lightly toasted
