Philadelphians are passionate about their city's sandwich, but you can learn to make a world-class cheesesteak no matter where you live.
You will need
- 2 medium onions
- 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
- Frying pan
- 12 oz. rib-eye steak
- Salt and pepper
- Provolone cheese slices
- Philadelphia bread roll
- American cheese (optional)
- Processed cheese spread (optional)
Step 1 Cook the onions Chop up the onions and fry them in oil until they are soft.
Step 2 Slice up a rib-eye steak Slice a partially frozen rib-eye steak into thin strips, discarding the fat.
Step 3 Fry the steak Add the sliced beef to the frying pan, away from the vegetables. Season it with salt and pepper, and cook the meat until it is done.
Step 4 Separate the meat and onions into two portions Combine the meat and onions and then divide the mixture into two separate portions in the pan.
Step 5 Add cheese Place a couple of slices of provolone cheese on each portion and allow the cheese to melt.
You can substitute American cheese or processed cheese spread for the provolone.
Step 6 Serve on a roll Slice the roll in two. Remove the two cheesesteak portions from the pan and place them on the two halves of the roll before serving.
