Beef Chopped Cheese Sandwich

Serves 4

With a nod to Harlem’s bodega, this is a chopped sandwich like no other. Imagine an ooey, gooey, cheesy Certified Angus Beef ® burger on a hoagie roll. It's addictingly delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 pounds Certified Angus Beef ® ground chuck (80% lean)
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons hoagie buns
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 8 slices American cheese
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 tomato cut into 8 thin slices

Instructions:

  1. In a large cast iron pan or griddle at medium-high heat, melt 1-tablespoon butter, toast inside surface of buns, 3-4 minutes. Reserve buns onto clean plates.
  2. Add remaining butter and onion to pan, sear about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally until they begin to get transparent. Move onions to sides of the pan, add ground beef to center as one large loose burger patty, brown without breaking it up. Season raw side with salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Sear beef 3-4 minutes, flip to brown second side, 2 minutes.
  3. Begin to chop up ground beef with spatula while working onions into beef mixture (about 3 minutes). Once no pink remains, divide ground beef and onion mixture into 4 even portions while still in pan, add 2 slices of cheese to each portion, melt another 2 minutes.
  4. Spread mayonnaise on insides of buns, add beef and top with lettuce and tomato. Press together and enjoy!
