Serves: 4 // Prep time: 20 minutes | Grilling time: 11 to 13 minutes | Special equipment: perforated grill pan

Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 red bell peppers
  • 1 yellow bell peppers
  • 1 yellow onions

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 2 boneless rib eye steaks, each 8 to 10 oz and about 1" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • .5 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • .5 tsp kosher salt


  • 8 slices provolone cheese


  • 4 ciabatta rolls


  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 boneless rib eye steaks, each 8 to 10 ounces and about 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ciabatta rolls, split
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 8 thin slices provolone cheese, about 1 ounce each


  1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F) and preheat the grill pan.

  2. In a large bowl combine the onion, peppers, garlic, oil, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly. Spread the vegetables on the grill pan in a single layer. Grill over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until they start to brown and are tender, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a medium bowl.

  3. Cut the steaks lengthwise into ⅛-inch slices. Place the slices in a medium bowl, add just enough oil to coat them lightly, and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Grill the steak slices on the grill pan over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the meat begins to curl and brown, 4 to 6 minutes, turning occasionally. Wearing barbecue mitts, remove the pan from the grill and set it down on a heatproof surface.

  4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Lightly brush the cut sides of the rolls with oil and grill them over direct high heat until toasted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Gently rub the garlic onto the toasted rolls.

  5. Build the sandwiches with cheese, meat, onions, and peppers. Serve warm.

I love this Smokey Mountain Cooker

I ordered this Smoker a few months ago after watching BBQ pitmasters and realized that I have been missing a very valuable cooking tool. I have the Weber Gold 22.5 and figured this would be a great addition. I must say that this smoker is an extreme load of awesome!! I used this for the first time a few months ago and I was amazed at how my ribs came out!! I then did a huge cookout and must say I had a blast but I was still learning this smoker. I have not figured out the best way to make my ribs and everyone loves them! Next on deck is a turkey and roast pork. I highly recommend this to anyone who is trying to step there game up and do some serious cooking. Will be hosting X-mas and putting this smoker to good use.
