Cheesesteak Stuffed Lasagna. I don’t think I need to say much today. Yup.
I used sirloin steak, because, well, it was on sale. Ribeye, Ny Strip, whatever floats your steak boat is fine. Just make sure it’s cold prior to slicing. Makes life so much easier. I pop it in the freezer for 30 mins.
Another tip. Buy regular lasagna sheets and throw them into a heat safe dish. Then, boil or heat some water until it’s super hot. Pour the hot water over the lasagna and allow them to sit there while you prepare the rest of this meal’s components. Then just drain the water off and proceed with the recipe. Perfect Al dente lasagna sheets ready for rolling without boiling. You’re welcome.
