    Oh, Philly cheesesteaks… growing up 5 minutes from Philadelphia I always stopped by Pat’s (never Gino’s haha) with my friends. Being vegetarian, I make substitutions now… but those were some yummy cheesesteaks!! Yours looks super yummy as well.

    Cheers,
    Savvy

      Hey Samantha! That’s funny ‘cuz I’ve never had a “true” Philly Cheesesteak! This is my total California rendition. Heehee. I bet this sandwich would still be great without the meat, too. Maybe even add some large portabello slices. Sounds good to me! If you do try it, I’d love to know what you think. Thanks for sharing!

    I just have to do it. You can call this a cheesesteak, but not a Philly cheesesteak. A Philly steak would never, ever, never, ever, never have green peppers on it.

      Hi Bill! It’s funny that you mention that because I looked into it and found all sorts of different examples of what an actual “Philly Cheesesteak” is. Mine is probably not a “real” Philly Cheesesteak, since a real Philly Cheesesteak doesn’t have mushrooms and may or may not have cheese. Interestingly enough, depending on what time-frame you’re looking at, the type of cheese even changes. Crazy how so many people can have such different (strong) interpretations of a sandwich, huh? Thanks for sharing. One day, I’d love to try one out in Philly!

    I’m sure the cheesesteaks were delicious! For me, it’s more about the insides, not the roll! It looks so yummmmy!

    Hi,
    Can I freeze the mix in the freezer and use it over a period of one month?

      I think that would be fine. Just make sure to separate it for whatever amount you’ll need so as not to keep defrosting and refreezing.

    Just recently had the pleasure of tasting both Gino’s and Pat’s real Philly cheese steak, both by their own rights were off the hook! Will definitely go back for some more. Yes, they don’t use peppers in their cheese steaks, nor mushrooms, who cares?! These two products juices up home made Philly cheese and steak sandwhiches. I will definitely be making this in the new year.

    I made this tonight and everyone loved it. I had thinly sliced pepperoncinis for a little zing.

      Hi Sue! I love the idea of adding some peperoncinis — thanks for sharing :)
