Made Cozumel steak sandwiches last night and man they were GREAT.
(my version of a Phili cheese steak)

Ingredients needed for two sandwiches:

1 medium size loft of french bread-cut on in half.
1 large green peppers
1 large onions
Sliced cheese of your choice-I used Manchego-4 to 5 slices may be needed
Maggi/Jugo sauce
Extra virgin olive oil
Filete Pza (paper thin sliced beef filet. I buy mine at SAM's) The package contains between 4 or 5 slices off beef.

In a bowl slice up the onions, and julian the peppers.

Add just enough of Extra virgin olive oil to have a light coating, add about 10 drops...plus or minius of Jugo sauce. I am heavy handed with the stuff, so I do use more.

Cover, and put in frig to marinate 2 to 3 hours.

In another bowl, repeat the above step using the Filete Paz, and refrigerate for about 2 to 3 hours.

Using a cast iron, or fry pan, on high heat add a tab of butter to the pan.

Once melted, throw in the onions and peppers and let cook. They will caramelize, and the peppers will soften. You can add more Juga to taste, and salt and pepper.

Once cooked, set aside.

In the same pan, (do not clean the pan) fry the Filet Paz. It cooks fast, but you do want it cooked fully.

Shut off heat, throw the cheese on, once it's melted place in french bread, smother it with the peppers and onions and you will be in for a taste treat.

I add more salt, and I also add ketchup on mine.

I served it with macaroni salad, and ice cold dill pickle.

Another thing I use juga with is I slice up fresh mushroom, and onions and a tab of butter, and marinate for a couple of hours. In cast iron or hot fry pan saute that up until it is caramelize and top a steak with it...

no home deliveries..

I am sure it's an old trick that I have just learned about boiling eggs, and saving time.

When your boiling macaroni, or potatoes put the eggs in the water too to make hard boiled eggs.

One step process.

This sounds like a good sandwich but I just gotta pipe in here. I'm from Philly (by way of North Carolina ) and this ain't no cheese steak. Our mangos are bitter, our limes are tough, and our avocados watery, but - our cheese steaks can't be duplicated. You gotta have Amoroso bread and the only acceptable cheese comes in an aerosol can of CheeseWiz . And definitely no Jugo! No disrespect, but when I'm in Coz I go for the Mission lime soup, avocados in any form, coconut shrimp and any kinda fish. If the kids get too antsy I might break down and take them to Guidos . But cheese steak is only from South Philly with an Addytude. Also, while I'm going on with my biased food opinions - BBQ is a noun not a verb, pork not beef, no tomato product anywhere in sight, and only from southeast NC - preferably the BBQ Hut across from the firestation in Fayetteville.

Me, neither. However, you can always substitute poblano peppers. I hate bell peppers, love poblanos. If you haven't tried such a substitution, give it a shot.

I do love REAL Phili Cheese steak sandwiches as well.

Perhaps, I should have just left it as Cozumel Cheese Steak sandwich and avoided the "dressing down" ;)


I miss roast beef on kimmelwick with REAL horseradish. That is a Buffalo area favorite.

I do make Anchor Bar Chicken wings. Anchor Bar is in Buffalo where they created the wings. You can get the sauce here.

If anybody is interested, I will post.

Oh, just as an aside. I made KFC cole slaw to go with my coconut breaded fish tonight.

When I lived there I swear it snowed year round.

My dad was transferred to the Buffalo area when I was a kid, no choice on my part.

To make REAL Buffalo Chicken Wings Dinner you need the following ingredients (serves 2/3 people):

2 packages chicken wings
1 bottle Frank's Hot Sauce-regular or Wing sauce. (Chedrui or Mega has it)
1/2 stick butter
Olive oil
Marzetti Blue Cheese Dressing (you can add more blue cheese if you like to the dressing)
French Bread
Celery

*Franks Hot Sauce, (regular or Wing)I would consider in the higher range of medium heat. With Wing being a tiny bit hotter then the regular. Try it first, and if not hot enough you can add hot sauce.

Cut the tip of the wings off and discard
Cut the drum, and wing apart. (I use very large scissors).
Roll the chicken pieces in a light coating of olive oil.

To cook the chicken there are two methods I use;

1. Baked in oven. Place on cookie sheet and bake until chicken is golden.
2. BBQ the wings in a two sided wire rack. Spray the wrack with something like PAM first.

To finish the wings I use a large pot, fill with Frank's Hot Sauce, and 1/2 stick butter, HEAT the sauce to melt the butter.

Turn off heat, place all the wings in the pot, swish around to cover all the wings. Set off heat, and let settle for a few mins.

Side dishes to serve with your wing dish:
Marzetti Blue Cheese dressing (each person has their own serving)
Celery Sticks
Garlic bread. (option is to add cheese slice to make Cheesy garlic bread)

Make sure you put a bone dish out.

If there are left overs, wings can be stored in the frig and they are excellent cold too.
