Slice steaks as thin as possible. Slice the white onion; separate into rings. Core and de-seed green and red bell peppers; slice into thin strips. Heat olive oil in a large skillet; add onions and bell peppers. Cook for about five minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions and bell peppers are soft; transfer to a bowl. Add beef slices to skillet; cook, searing on both sides. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Cook beef until tender; return onions and bell peppers to the skillet. Mix well. Split and lightly toast long hot-dog buns or hoagie rolls. Spoon beef mixture onto buns or rolls; top with provolone cheese slices. Serve.
History Note: Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches were invented by Harry and Pat Olivieri in the early 1930s, which was sold at their restaurant Pat's King of Steaks on East Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia. The restaurant is still open for business, owned and managed by the Olivieri family.
