Total Time:
30 mins


  • 1/4 cup canola oil, plus more for brushing

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce

  • 7 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger

  • 2 green bell peppers, thinly sliced

  • 2 bunches scallions, halved crosswise

  • 1 pound rib eye steak, thinly sliced (see Note)

  • Toasted soft hoagie buns, mayonnaise and sliced pickles, for serving


  1. Light a grill and oil the grate. In a large bowl, whisk the 1/4 cup of oil with the soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Add the peppers, scallions and meat and toss to coat. Grill over moderately high heat, turning, 1 to 2 minutes for the meat, 3 minutes for the scallions and about 8 minutes for the peppers. Assemble the sandwiches on buns with mayonnaise and pickles.


Look for thinly sliced steak at Asian markets, or have your butcher slice it.
