Philadelphia Cheese Steaks with Onions and Wasabi Ketchup | Sliced Tomatoes with Fresh Basil and Aged Balsamic

Last night, I finished up Robin Miller’s plan for the week. It was SUPER fast to put together, but I ran into a few problems – but I definitely will do this again, and make a few changes to make it a GREAT meal.

The first problem was that I couldn’t find steak rolls, and the ones I got were crusty, which is normally good, but it ended up being too hard, and cut up the roof of my mouth. Next time I’ll seek out a softer roll, preferably a steak roll. Also, I put it in the oven for the suggested time, and it didn’t warm it up enough, and the cheese was nowhere near melted, and the onions weren’t cooked much. It’s hard to check on something when it’s wrapped in foil, but next time, I’d probably put it in for around 20 minutes.

This salad is something I’ve made before, and don’t need a recipe for, but I made it regardless. It was delicious as always. I used some good balsamic and olive oil from O & Co. I also mixed the store-bought tomatoes with some from a friend’s garden. There’s nothing better than fresh garden tomatoes! A great addition would be some fresh mozzarella and/or red onion slices.
