Cheesesteak FlatbreadThis pepper steak works great as sandwich filling! Toast two flatbread rounds. Using a slotted spoon to eliminate juice, placed a scoop of the steak and pepper mixture on top of one half. Top with mozzarella cheese and place other half of the flatbread on top to create a sandwich. Enjoy!
*Original recipe suggests serving the pepper stead over rice or noodles, which would pair very nicely with this dish!
