    What kind of meat did you use? What kind of steak?

  3. Jean says:

    When you make them the night before do they get soggy?

    Tried this last night and it was outstanding !
    However, on my green Mountain grill set at 350 the bottom of the bread had to much burn. Might have to try a lower temp and longer cook next time ?

    Huge hit for the Super Bowl! It was awesome. We used Choice ribeye and it turned out fantastic. Definitely a keeper.
