A nice thick Marinara Sauce is good with  sauteed onions.
Cavender's Greek Seasoning is FANTASTIC on any steak. Sprinkle some on while grilling the meat

I know you're talking beef...   but the best secret ingredient for Chickensteak subs is Mrs. Dash (the original variety) = WOW!

most places traditionally just use pepper and maybe a small pinch of salt to season the meat while cooking it.  since you're using such a good quality meat, you really shouldn't need anything else!
 
i'd be leary of mrs. dash - lots of salt/msg in most of their offerings.  would be too easy to end up with too much and that would ruin the taste of the meat!

  I think that Mr. Hoffman has a valid point. Im' pretty sure that Mrs. Dash was marketed as a salt substitute. I have never seen MSG listed as one of the ingredients either.

  There are a lot of Philly purists out there. I am however, not one of them. I use a lot of different ingredients to play up the flavors of the shaved rib eye i.e. Steak- Eze.

  I use onions, jalapenos and cheddar for a Mexican "Philly." I use bell peppers, pineapple, and teriyaki sauce for a Hawaiian "Philly." I like to put a little Italian dressing on a regular Philly, just for a little bite. Reuben "Philly" with Sauerkraut and Swiss cheese and a little spread of 1,000 Island. Italian "Philly" with house made marinara and mozzarella. Greek "Philly" with Feta cheese and Tzatziki sauce. Just to name a few that I have tried at the Restaurant. Most sell pretty well.

   Edit----.
 
as for mrs dash, i'll repeat what i said:  i made a mistake; either i was confusing it with another product that does have msg/salt in it, or, they did, at some point, offer something that had msg/salt.  the current line of products does not have either.
 
as for the topic of the thread, the op asked about spicing the meat.  salt and pepper are all that are needed for flavoring the meat.  that's the way it's done here in philly - if it's even added at all and most places don't usually put s/p on while cooking the meat.  it's not a purist thing at all, it's just how it is :)
 
things like sauted peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc and cheese are extra's added to the sandwich.  most places use these items to enhance the flavor the sandwich, which is the meat.   they're also sometimes used to hide the fact that the quality of the meat is less than perfect.
 
buck & vi, you're using a very good quality meat and should only need just a hint of salt/pepper to enhance it.  extra's added to the sandwich should not be of such quantity as to hide/overwhelm the flavor of the beef. good quality beef that has no or very little gristle in it is key.  the meat should be tasty enough to not need any of the extras!
 
one thing you can do to add some bit of extra flavor, besides salt/pepper, is to use olive oil to saute the meat.  not many places do that here and it really makes a difference.

What valid point was that? I can't find it. Oh, wait. Did you mean when I pointed out that according to the labels on all the Mrs. Dash seasonings there is no salt and no msg in any of those products?

I agree! That's why I recommend Cavenders. It has plenty of granulated garlic & other goodies in it.  CTF, give it a shot. http://www.greekseasoning.com/

the apology i tendered was removed.  i really don't understand why it was because it was the appropriate thing to do after making the mistake of responding so offensively to being attacked in such an unwarranted manner.  i handled the attack in an inappropriate manner.
 
anyhoo, i wish you the best with your steaks and please, post the final version of the spices!

Having lived in Hawaii, I love a Teriyaki Cheese Steak. Add some teriyaki sauce when its on the grill and it gives it an exotic taste twist, one that you have to try to experience. That or a Bulgogi flavored Steak & Cheese.
