Philadelphia Flyers Cheesesteak

Today's post is focused on Philadelphia.  The home of the Broadstreet Bullies.  The first food I think of when thinking about Philadelphia would be the Philly Cheesesteak.  I understand that the natives there are very picky about their sandwiches.  Here is what I did to mine:

Philadelphia Flyers Cheesesteak
1 lb thinly sliced beef
1 white onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
Provolone cheese
Cheese Whiz
2 hoagie rolls
  • Slice beef as thin as you can get it.  It helps to cut it by putting the steak in the freezer for about 45 minutes and then slicing it.  It really help if you have a food slicer.
  • Cook onion, garlic, and pepper over low heat until onion starts to caramelize.  Set aside and keep warm.
  • Cook steak over high heat to brown.  Lower heat and mix in the pepper and onion mixture.  Divide into two piles and top with cheeses. 
  • Split hoagies in half length-wise and place on top of beef and cheese until cheese is melted.  Flip over with spatulas.  Cut in half and serve.
Pretty basic, pretty tasty.  This was definitely a winner.  If I had to guess I would say even James Van Riemsdyk would approve!  I'm going to make this again and use my horseradish sauce and maybe some mushrooms too.  I've also been told that I need to use marinara sauce as well.  If the Flyers make the playoffs, well WHEN they make the playoffs this year, let's hope they don't play Boston know...
