This lightened up Philadelphia specialty is terrific comfort food. These cheese steaks are meaty, cheesy, and great with cold beer. Our version features tender onions, lean flank steak, Worcestershire sauce, reduced-calorie buns, and reduced-fat cheese. It all comes together in one skillet as well; simply sauté the onions first, then use the same pan to cook the steak, which takes just 1–2 minutes per side. You can serve the sandwiches still wrapped in foil after cutting them in half crosswise straight out of the oven. You'll love the convenience of the easy cleanup if you're feeding a crowd on game day.
