4 soft Italian roll loaves
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced or diced
1/2 medium bell pepper (green or red), thinly sliced or diced
8 slices of Provolone or American cheese
Optional toppings: mushrooms, hot peppers, picked peppers or pickles


1. Prepare the Steak:

Hack: Place the steak in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes to make it easier to slice thinly. (This really does work great!)
Remove it from the freezer and slice it as thinly as possible against the grain. You can use a sharp knife or ask your butcher to do this for you.
Season the steak slices with salt, seasonings, and a splash of Worcestershire sauce if desired.

2. Cook the Steak:

Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.
Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan and let it heat up.
Spread the thinly sliced steak in the hot pan in an even layer. Allow it to cook without stirring for a minute or two to develop a sear, then flip it and cook for another minute or until it's browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness. The meat should be tender and slightly crispy.
Remove the cooked steak from the pan and set it aside.

3. Sauté the Onions and Peppers:

In the same pan, add a bit more olive oil if needed, and then add the diced onions and peppers. (I like mine cooked more thoroughly so I dice and cook longer.)
Sauté them until they become soft and slightly caramelized, about 5-7 minutes. You can season them with a pinch of salt and pepper.

4. Assemble the Cheesesteak:

Split the Italian rolls butter and place them on the griddle or in a preheated oven to lightly toast.
Lay slices of Provolone or American cheese over the cooked steak, allowing it to melt.
Once the cheese has melted, pile the cheesy steak onto the toasted rolls.
Top the steak with the sautéed onions and peppers.

5. Serve:

Be Ready to Wow! Utah's Ultimate Grilling Secret

(2 min read)

When it comes to Labor Day grilling in Utah, there's a real taste for some unique flavors and fun traditions. Here are a few of the secrets for taking your grilling up a notch:

If you only wanted one secret, this is it. Marinating is the name of the game! Marinating makes meats like beef and pork super tasty and tender. Think soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, and all those good seasonings mixed up to give your grillables a flavor boost. If you've never done this then it is hard to understand why marinating is so important. If you have ever wondered why some BBQ's are THAT much better, the chef probably used marinades.  If you can marinate for a day or two it makes your meat just irresistible!

And Utah folks have a sweet tooth for their meats too, so you'll often find sauces and rubs that balance sweet stuff like honey or brown sugar with savory spices and herbs. Plus, don't forget the legendary fry sauce – it's not just for fries; it's a dipping superstar for your grilled goodies.

Now, it wouldn't be a Utah Labor Day grill without a side of grilled veggies. We're talking bell peppers, zucchinis, and corn on the cob getting that smoky, grill-marked treatment. And here's a twist – bison burgers are a big hit. They're leaner and have a unique flavor compared to regular beef burgers. Quality cuts of meat, like ribeye steaks or prime rib, are often the star of the show, making sure your taste buds are in for a treat.

But it's not just about the food; it's about the whole experience. It's the farewell to summertime temps. Utahns love taking their grilling outdoors, whether in their backyards or in the great outdoors.

Labor Day is all about getting together with friends and family, sharing good times, and enjoying delicious food. And let's not forget the push for local ingredients – supporting local farms and businesses adds a fresh and community-centered touch to the celebration.
