A quick under 20 minute version of this recipe is posted at the bottom of this post. 

Steak & Sauce Ingredients: 

1-2 lbs beef cubes or skirt steak cut into small strips
** For Meat Lovers ** 
1/2 Lbs Italian Sausage or pork cubes (Optional)
1 yellow or orange bell pepper chopped
4 cups of sliced mushrooms (optional)
1 chopped yellow onion
2 Tablespoons of minced garlic
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 can of Contadina tomato paste
2 large cans of tomato sauce
3 Tablespoons of Italian Seasoning
1 Tablespoon of basil
1 teaspoon Italian origano
1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup red wine (I use sangria)
3 cups of water


Cut your beef into small cubes or strips. preferably bite sized so it is easy to eat in your sandwich. 

In a deep sauce pan add your beef cubes, onion, bell pepper, garlic and spices.  Once the beef cubes are browned, add your tomato paste and brown until the paste become a dark deep burgundy. 

Add your water, wine, tomato sauce pepper flakes and mushrooms. Mix everything together getting any paste mixed into the sauce.

Cover and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring every so often.

Baguette Ingredients: 

4 cups of Self rising flour
1 cup of luke warm water
2 tablespoons of yeast
1 tablespoon of sugar
3 tablespoons of olive oil
(1 cup additional flour for flat surface)
1/4 cup melted butter
3 Tablespoons Italian seasioning


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 

In a glass measuring cup measure out one cup luke warm water. Add yeast and sugar. Whisk real quick with a whisk or fork. let sit until it starts to look like root-beer foam at the top. This is proofing your yeast. 

Next add your flour to a mixing bowl. (I use a standard Kitchenaid with a dough hook) but you can also do this by hand or with a mixer.

Slowly add your yeast mixture to your flour, and on low, slowly add your remaining water and oil. Add more water or flour as needed to get a dough consistency. 

On a clean flat surface lightly flour an area to work place your dough on top and let proof (rise).

Once your dough has doubled in size cut into even portions without mashing down your raised dough. Sprinkle flour on the outside to keep the dough from sticking to your hands. 

Gently shape your rolls without squishing them. 

In a baking pan lightly greased place your rolls and let proof again for 40 minutes. 

Next Bake your rolls at 450 degrees until golden brown roughly 12- 14 minutes. 

Brush with melted butter and sprinkle Italian seasoning on top. Then let rest 10 minutes.

Cut and spoon filling into the rolls, add your favorite shredded cheese and enjoy! 

*** For a quick version of this, brown your meat add your favorite jarred sauce, spoon it onto some fresh cut french bread, top with cheese and enjoy! ***
