Dinner in a Bag

Sometimes you just don't have time to cook a gourmet meal for dinner.  On those nights, I like something easy to prepare and one of our new favorite things is a meal in a bag from J.T.M. called the "Philly Cheese Steak Kit."  You can make it in a matter of minutes and I usually serve it with potato salad and there you have it!  A complete dinner:)

I purchased my kit at Kroger in the frozen foods section.  I know that Wal-Mart also carries this item.  The kit comes with four blocks of Philly Beef Steak, four frozen rolls, a bag of frozen mozzarella cheese, and a bag of frozen onions. 

The first thing you do is put the rolls in the oven to warm up while you're cooking the beef steak.  Next throw the beef steak in a skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, flip cook 2-3 minutes on the other side and the meat just crumbles.

Next add 1/2 your onions and cook until they are heated through.  The meat is from two of the beef steaks.  I like to cook them two at a time.  When everything is nice and done, I usually go ahead and throw some of the cheese on here and let it melt a little.

Take your rolls out of the oven, add the meat/onion/cheese mixture and you're done.  I usually add a little BBQ sauce to mine, but my husband likes them as is.  There you have it.  Couldn't be any simpler.  Just make sure the rolls are heated all the way through.  It may take them a little longer than everything else.

Note:  The directions are on the back of the bag.  I vary a little from J.T.M.'s directions, but you get the idea.
