Home Made Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches


I've really been craving Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches lately and figured I'd make some this holiday weekend. I've never made them with Cheez Whiz before (Usually just sliced cheddar as I'm not as big of a Provolone fan with these) but I gotta say, these turned out better than my previous attempts!

The onions are just starting to cook! Is there any better smell than cooking onions?

Bright and shiny red pepper with a delicious strawberry daquiri! I'm not a pepper fan (sacrelige, I know!) but they are rather pretty to look at. I made them because the boy likes em.

I tried a different method to cook the meat this time. Usually I slice the meat up really thin prior to cooking, this time I followed the advice of an online video I consulted: Brown the meat on both sides, (I did about 2.5 minutes on each side), immediately wrap in foil and let sit for a little bit before sticking it in the fridge to cool. Do all of your veg prep in the mean time and set those aside. Bring the meat out and slice into thin strips, then reheat all of your meat and veg in the pan at once. I gotta say, I like this method better, it ensured that the meat was nice and medium rare and took all the stress out of timing.


I love mushrooms on mine, so we had some garlic sauteed mushrooms along with it!
