we all know phillychesse steak..dried up steak sliced super thin, greasy onions and green peppers, covered in neon yellow cheese that came from a can…and people still eat this why?
time to grow up and put on your big boy pants mr.cheesesteak.first lets start with our steak, ribeye steak, we only need one, so buying the good stuff is the way to go. lightly saute the onions and peppers, we still want them to have a bite, not soggy. last but not least homemade blue cheese sauce, so easy to make and is amazing on anything.
so here’s to you mr.grownupcheesesteak , i like what you’ve turned into…
