Onions and Peppers and Beef! Oh my!! Think of this as an open faced sub of sorts made with ground beef, strips of sweet peppers and onions, and wrapped in a blanket of cheese.
1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips
1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
1/2 cup creamy Italian dressing
1 loaf (1 lb) Italian bread (12 inches long), halved lengthwise
4 slices (6 oz) thinly sliced provolone cheese, quartered
Set oven control to broil. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, bell peppers and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in 1/4 cup of the dressing.
Spread remaining 1/4 cup dressing on cut sides of bread. Place both halves, cut sides up, on ungreased large cookie sheet. Broil with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 2 to 4 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove bread from broiler. Spread beef mixture on cut halves of bread. Top with cheese.
Return to broiler; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut each half into 2 pieces.
