Worlds Best Philly Cheesesteak Recipe

There are a few places around the USA where you can get a wonderful Philly Cheesesteak besides Philadelphia. Yes indeed there are but you have to know where to look or you can make the recipe on this page for what is truly the World's Best Philly Cheesesteak.

A Note About The Meat

The meat is very important when you are making a Philly Cheesesteak from scratch. It must be shaved rib-eye and it must be shaved very thin. If you have a good meat market in your area go in and tell them you want to purchase 5-10 pounds of rib-eye meat shaved very thin for sandwiches. How much meat you need will depend on how many sandwiches you are going to want to make. Your going to need about 1/2 pound or 8 ounces of meat for each sandwich. And tell your butcher you want it shaved very thin.

You will want Italian sub rolls to make your Philly cheesesteak sandwiches with.

Your also going to need.

1. Thinly sliced sweet yellow onions

2. Thinly sliced green bell peppers

3. Minced fresh grated garlic

4. Ground White Pepper

5. Ground Black Pepper

6. Table Salt

7. Thin sliced white American cheese

8. Thinly sliced white button mushrooms ( optional )

9. Fresh ground Cayenne Pepper ( Also Optional )

On a flat grill or in a large non stick skillet place your peppers and onions and fry turning often until done. While cooking sprinkle your peppers and onions with the salt and peppers. Once done place in a bowl and set aside. Cook your mushrooms the same way and set them aside.

Now when you are ready to put a sandwich together place a portion of meat for each sandwich on your flat top grill or in a large non stick skillet. Sprinkle your meat with the salt and peppers and add a half teaspoon of fresh garlic to the meat for each sandwich. Turn your meat often to get it done. Once near done place a couple of slices of white American cheese over the small pile of meat to melt.

You can at this time add mayonnaise or mustard to the bread and you are now ready to put your sandwich together. On your pile of meat now add to each sandwich the peppers and onions and mushrooms if desired. This goes on top of the cheese. Now cap each pile of meat with an Italian sub roll and let the bread heat up on top of the meat. Slide your spatula under each pile of meat and pick up your sandwich turning it over to serve on your plates or trays. For a extra special taste treat serve with homemade onion rings.

      You guys have got to be kidding me. I grew up there and we always laughed how Pat's and Geno's were for tourists, who didn't know any better. Average, average, average. They live off their name. Go to Jim's or John's Roast Pork (just 2 examples) if you want something great.

      A bit late on my review...these sandwiches were sooooo good! I actually made them last night, and had rave reviews from my husband; he loves Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. The only thing I might do differently, is add a bit less meat; a bit too much for our taste. However, not a single bite was left! Thanks again for the post!
