When we make a sub, we don’t just make any old sub. So when we were coming up with ideas for our Steak & Cheese menu, we put a lot of time into it. We grilled a ton of steak, melted boat loads of cheese and tried so many different ingredients and flavor combos that it was ridiculous.
When we tried the Screamin’ Sicilian for the first time we knew we had a winner. The spicy pepperoni and creamy Calabrian chili mayo go perfect with grilled banana peppers. Combine that with sweet grilled onions, melted provolone and the best tomato sauce ever made, and you have something beautiful. It’s probably one of the best subs you’ll ever eat.
Even if you can’t make it into Mortadella Head to have a Screamin’ Sicilian, we don’t want you to miss out. That’s why we’re giving you the recipe here.
1 Italian sub roll
8 ounces shaved rib eye
3 slices provolone cheese
10 slices of pepperoni
½ cup of sliced onions
½ cup sliced banana peppers
2 tablespoons Mortadella Head Calabrian Chili Mayo
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 ounces Mortadella Head Tomato Sauce
1 teaspoon grated Romano cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Coat bottom of a frying pan with olive oil and place on medium to high heat
2. Add onions to pan and saute until they start to brown
3. Add pepperoni and banana peppers to the pan with the onions and saute until the pepperoni starts to sweat and oil from the pepperoni flavors the onions.
4. Transfer grilled onions, banana pepper rings and pepperoni to a plate and set aside.
5. Add shaved rib-eye to the frying pan. Using a spatula, break up the shaved rib-eye into small pieces while it’s cooking.
6. When the steak is cooked to medium, add onions, pepperoni, and banana peppers back into the frying pan. Season with salt and pepper and incorporate all ingredients together.
7. Place sliced provolone on top of steak mixture and let it melt.
8. Spread Calabrian Chili Mayo on both sides of sub roll.
9. Transfer steak and cheese mixture into the sub roll.
