This is EXACTLY how I have made them for years, to the gastronomic delight of friends and family. Simple, easy, and delicious.
@Alan - It may not be "authentic" to you and your recipe, but since the original Philly was made witout cheese, yours is a variation as well. WitWiz has been an accepted standard for decades. Also "You should use olive oil & not butter" - Why? Most cooks use oil, butter, or a combination of both to saut? onions to bring out the natural sweetness of the onions.
Regardless - The Phillysteak is an American delight in any variation, and thanks to Babychops for posting this recipe.
Holy smokes! Really??? This is soooooo good. I had to do a little dance after eating my sandwich. I am a Midwest girl who honestly doesn't care what is authentic or not...all I know is utter deliciousness. Thanks for the recipe ( sidenote: ribeye is the only way to go IMO )
These were fabulous! Thank you so much for the recipe! My husband wanted to try a real Philly cheesesteak and having tried both famous Pat's and Geno's I think this one is just as good!
We have a lot in common. I had Quarter Horses all my life & also showed Fawn Great Danes... I'm not giving this a bad rating, because it probably tastes wonderful; however, it is not "authentic". You should use olive oil & not butter. Cheeze Whiz is how one of the places you mentioned makes them now; however, that is not "authentic". Provolone is the cheese that should be used for authenticity. Again, I'm sure that your recipe is probably also good.
