Cheese Deer Steak Sandwich

We recently made a trip to the ESPN Club on the Boardwalk at Disney World  I highly recommend it.  We loved the atmosphere and the food was great.  Jeff got a "Philly CheeseSteak" sandwich, which came with their homemade potato chips.  I got the ESPN Dinger sandwich, which is a breaded chicken breast with medium sauce.  Both were delicious.

We decided to try and recreate the CheeseSteak sandwich with deer meat.  We used deer cutlets which had been tenderized.  They were seasoned with some Slap Ya Mama; cooked on a flat griddle, then cut in thin strips.  Next we tossed the meat with some jarred cheese sauce; just enough to coat the meat. 

We thinly sliced a red onion, a Vidalia onion and a green bell pepper and cooked them down until they were tender.  (If I had remembered to buy some mushrooms, we would have cooked them too.)

We lightly toasted some soft, fresh hoagie buns and filled them with the meat, onions, bell pepper and provolone cheese on top. 

They turned out really good.  Maybe not quite as good as the ESPN Club, but we will definitely make them again - and this time I won't forget the mushrooms.
