For the sandwich, heat vegetable oil in a sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add onions, a pinch of salt, and cook (stirring occasionally) for 15-20 minutes until onions slowly turn brown and sweet. Meanwhile, in another pan, combine steak tips, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce over medium-high heat. Cook to desired doneness.
For The Cheese Sauce, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour, whisking constantly, until flour beings to darken and turn brown. Add milk, stirring constantly, and simmer until mixture thickens, about three minutes. Remove from heat, and add cheese, cayenne, and paprika. Salt and pepper to taste.
To assemble the sandwich, spread each side of each hoagie roll with some of the cheese sauce. Add caramelized onions, steak, and cover with remaining cheese sauce.
