Wowzers!!! What a great recipe. I used a leftover roast that was medium rare. I sliced it on the slicer and proceeded to follow the recipe. We loved this and plan on making the roast just for this recipe....lol. I made this for lunch for the kids and I but this will be made for dinner in this house. I didn't have provolone this time so I subbed in swiss cheese but I plan on using the provolone next time. Thank you for posting this awesome sandwich.

This sandwich is sloppy but excellent. I ended up using deli italian beef becaue it was more raw it turned out perfect. My husband ordered this when we were out and he said this was just as good if not better than what he got at the restraurant. Well worth the calories!

Yummy. we're in australia and this was this months different recipe from america for my husband. I need to cut the meat thinner next time, but apart from that he said it was perfect. i used subway rolls as couldn't find anything i thought would suit and he ate a entire footlong. So thankyou this is going into my recipe box under USA treats!

THE MOST AMAZING THINGS I HAVE EVER TASTED. I used to think I knew what a Philly cheese steak tasted like until I tried these. Rave reviews from all my friends, many even thought I had bought them! I can't get enough of these sandwiches!

This recipe was my 1st attempt at Philly Cheese Steak and it turned out great. I used sub bread that I sliced open and lightly toasted under the broiler before usuing, as someone else stated I didn't want the bread to get soggy. My roast beef was a bit bland so I added a LOT more garlic, S&P, red pepper flakes and a few other things to our liking. I put the filling on the bread, topped with cheese and put under the broiler until the cheese was melted. It was heavenly! I served this to a group of men and my kids and all gave it a thumbs up! I'm looking forward to making this again and again.

Except for using a pan due to lack of griddle, I followed this to the letter, and all I can say is *slurp.* Comfort food at it's finest! The phrase "comfort food" really sells it short, though. Thank you so much for sharing the real Philly with us. This is a gorgeous sandwich.

Yummy is the word for this sandwich! Made just like the recipe and ate till I thought I was going to pop. The smells in the kitchen were making me hungrier by the minute while I was cooking them. We will be making these many times in the future. We loved them! Thanks Alan. Cindy

This was very good. I also liked the idea of hollowing out the bread. It's too doughy for me if you don't. I would suggest really good quality roast beef, probably even better if you buy raw beef and slice it yourself. The deli meat is too salty for me and so it overpowers the flavor of the beef. I would definitely make this again.

Haven't tried it yet, but will. We've only had the kind with ribeyes and whiz so far. This sounds like a good change. And for the other comments claiming this isn't authentic, you need to re-read the write up by Mr. Leonetti. This is old school and the whiz is the new style.

I selected this recipe because I wanted to have something to cook that didn't take too long. It turned out pretty good and everything tasted good. I happened to change the type of bread to steak rolls because it was easier and I didn't have to take the time to cut the bread. One tip i would suggest is to not use that much oil because it makes the sandwich really greasy.
