Right recipe. Wrong City. Despite the name, we still like the Cheesesteak Sandwich.

The title is wrong but the taste is right.  Here’s a great recipe for Philly Cheese Steak:

  • 2 fresh Italian rolls or 2 kaiser rolls, split in half crosswise
  • 1 white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1⁄2 large green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1⁄2 lb rib eye steak, very very thinly sliced
  • 1/3 lb provolone cheese or 4 ounces melted Cheese Whiz
  • ketchup, topping (optional)
  • pepperoncini pepper, accompaniment
  • olive oil


  • Heat a cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.
  • When hot add the oil, onions and bell peppers, and cook, stirring, until caramelized, about 6 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  • Push off to 1 side of the griddle.
  • Add the meat to the hot pan and cook, stirring and breaking up with the back of 2 metal spatulas, until almost no longer pink, about 2 minutes.
  • Mix in the sauteed vegetables.
  • Top with cheese slices and melt.
  • Spoon the cheesy meat mixture into the warm buns and serve immediately with condiments of choice or Put the meat in the bun and dip the spatula in the cheese whiz and then wipe the spatula down the inside of the bread.
