- 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.
- TIP: 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.
- FACT: The Philly cheesesteak was invented in the 1930s when the owners of a hot dog shop in South Philadelphia decided to try something different for lunch.
