Carb lovers rejoice, for this Cheesy Steak Stuffed French Bread is a delight for the taste buds. Taking just a few minutes to hollow out the bread, the extra effort ensures ample space for the mouth-watering steak filling. Rather than cutting the loaf in half, a top one-third is removed, creating a bread boat with a tantalizing half-inch border.

For a successful outcome, consider these helpful tips:

  • Opt for a sturdy, crusty French bread that can hold up well when sliced.
  • Choose quality beef steak, thinly sliced for optimum tenderness.
  • Experiment with ground beef or sausage as alternatives, ensuring any excess grease is drained.
  • Preheat the oil over medium-high heat before adding the steak, allowing it to cook quickly and attain a delightful crispiness.
  • Fresh ginger is a game-changer, offering a distinct flavor enhancement.
  • Explore Swiss and sharp cheddar cheeses as alternatives, and consider adding sautéed veggies like onions, bell peppers, or mushrooms.
  • Prepare the dish just before serving for the best results. While the steak can be prepared in advance and refrigerated, avoid stuffing the bread and adding cheese until right before baking.
  • Serve promptly to savor the warmth of the steak and the crusty texture of the bread.

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf crusty French bread
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 lb beef steak, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha hot chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup Provel ropes or shredded Provolone cheese

Instructions:

  1. Cut the top third of the French bread, creating a boat by hollowing out the insides with a downward-angled knife, leaving a half-inch border.
  2. Sauté steak in oil over medium-high heat until browned and slightly crispy (about 5-7 minutes). Drain any excess moisture.
  3. Reduce heat, add garlic, and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in soy sauce, sriracha, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, and ketchup. Season with salt and pepper, simmering for 5 minutes.
  4. Spoon the beef mixture into the bread boat, top with shredded cheese, and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Broil for a minute to brown the cheese.
  5. Serve promptly, relishing the hot steak and warm, crusty bread.
