Philly Steak minus the cheese

Sorry this pic is a little washed out...my camera is being temperamental, which is understandable since it was dropped on the floor not too long ago.  Anyway, do you have some steak you are wondering what to do with, well have no fear, your answer is here!  This steak and onion sandwich was great and a nice change from the dinners we've been having lately.  This was a fun and delicious meal that was not too heavy, but just right.  Plus, do you remember how much I love mushrooms?  Well I love caramelized onions just about as much!!!  I was very impressed with the flavor in this sandwich, who needs cheese whiz? Huh philly???  Alright well I realize this isn't a philly cheese steak, but its pretty much just as delicious and the salad that I served with it was also fantastic.  The herb vinaigrette was great, I'm telling you if you like herbs you will like this!  I do however wish I would have chosen a different lettuce...needed something crisper than what I chose...maybe radicchio next time.
ENJOY!

Sandwich: **
Salad: ***

FYI: When asking Logan for his rating his said "It was good, but it needed something, maybe cheese.  Cheese whiz like a real philly cheese steak."  Haha just goes to show how different people's opinions can be! :)
