Philly Steak Wraps

For our last tailgate, we wanted something different. Everyone does wings, ribs, hamburgers, but what could we make that would be unique and delicious? While looking over the meat counter at our local grocery store, we saw some beautiful thin sirloin steaks. Knowing that my husband loves a good steak sandwich, I decided to put a little spin on it and do some easy to carry steak wraps. To my relief, he was all in!
On the day of the game, we broke out our tailgating grill with an interchangeable griddle top. As the food began to cook, people flocked to our tent. Several said that it "smells just like the fair" as the peppers and onions grilled to perfection. As the dish was served, the people went crazy! Some ate them simple and plain while others turned them into more of a fajita and added sour cream and toppings. No matter how you dress them, this quick and easy recipe will become a weeknight favorite for you too!

FOR THE SEASONING BLEND
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
FOR THE WRAPS
1 Pound Thin Sirloin Strip Steak
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Green Pepper, Thinly Sliced
1 Yellow Onion, Thinly Sliced
10 Button Mushrooms, Thinly Sliced
1 teaspoon Steak Sauce
6 Slices Swiss Cheese
8 Small Flour Tortillas

1. Combine the seasoning blend ingredients. Set aside.
2. Place the steak on a cutting board and cut into very thin strips. Move the sliced steak into a shallow dish. Cover with Worcestershire sauce; stir. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Ten minutes prior to cooking, remove from the refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature.
3. Heat a large skillet over Medium High heat until hot. Add the butter to the pan. Once melted, add the steak, shaking excess sauce off the meat as it is added to the pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the seasoning blend. Allow the steak to quickly sear, forming a slight crust, before tossing. Cook for 3 minutes.
4. Add the peppers, onions, and mushrooms to the pan. Sprinkle with an additional 1/2 teaspoon of the seasoning blend. Stir often, allowing the vegetables to soften slightly. Cook for 3 minutes.
5. Add the steak sauce to the pan. Stir. Cook for 1 minute.
6. Place the cheese slices on top of the meat mixture. Allow to melt.
7. Remove from the pan and serve in a warm flour tortilla.
