Review: Subway - Steak & Cheese Sub

Subway Steak & Cheese Sub has been an on again, off again menu item that is now a permanent fixture on the menu. Like all Subway subs, it features your choice of bread, cheese, condiments, and veggies and a specific meat, in this case, steak. Since cheese is free on all Subway subs, they really should have just called it the "Steak Sub" but I guess that's just not as catchy.

Since it's "FebruANY," it'll only cost you $5 for a Footlong this month but is normally $6.25.

I went pretty simple and classic with my Steak & Cheese footlong: just steak, provolone cheese, red onions, and green bell peppers toasted on Jalapeno Cheese bread. Jalapeno Cheese bread is not on the national Subway menu so your local Subway may or may not serve it.
Subway steak, like all their meats, is pre-cooked and resembles a chopped moist beef jerky in appearance. Their are two scoops of steak per Steak & Cheese. I believe you get four scoops (i.e double meat) with the Big Philly Cheesesteak. Tastewise, while it's not juicy, it's well-seasoned and tender enough to not be chewy.

The provolone is quite mild and while nicely melted, I found myself wishing for more cheese as I ate the sandwich. The veggies were plentiful and I was pleased to get a good taste of bell pepper and onions in every bite.
The bread was toasted to a nice crustiness with a soft crumb within. While I could see cheese baked in on top, I really couldn't taste it. I especially liked the jalapenos that were baked into the bread; it gave the sandwich the occasional and surprising bite.

While Subway's Steak & Cheese Sub is never going to satisfy my craving for a Philly Cheesesteak, it's a good sub in its own right and I would happily eat it again.
