what cheese could I use instead of provolone?
My husband and I love provolone because it isn’t too strong, and adds the perfect amount of texture. If you don’t love provolone, you could easily replace it with another cheese.
Here are a few different cheeses that would taste amazing on this sandwich, that we would definitely recommend:
- Feta Cheese ( I love feta cheese and would put it on everything if I could. Maybe not the best for kids, but if you love Feta cheese, you will love it on this sandwich).
- Swiss Cheese
- Pepper Jack Cheese
- Cheddar Cheese (not the most recommended for this sandwich, because the flavor pairs a little differently with the meat, but if it’s all you have on hand, it will still taste delicious. A marbled cheese like a Colby Jack wold also work great).
- Mozzarella Cheese
Really you could use any of your favorite cheese, but these are the ones we definitely recommend.
what could i use in place of the steak sauce?
This recipe calls for steak sauce. We usually just use A1, because we always have it on hand, and it tastes amazing in this recipe.
However if you don’t have steak sauce and don’t want to invest (it’s a very small, less than $3 investment), you can easily use something else you have on hand. Here is what we recommend:
Steak sauce is compiled of:
- soy sauce
- Worcestershire sauce
- onion powder
- hot sauce
- garlic powder
You could easily make your own, or you could just use a few of these ingredients to fill in. I am not sure on the exact measurements of each, but a rough combination would make a delicious steak sauce or steak sauce substitute
(I would go easy on the Worcestershire sauce however. It is a little on the powerful side.)
