    Other than the obvious (steak & cheese :doh:) what is your favorite combo?

    Here is the real deal.

    Cheese Steak Sandwich Recipe

    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    2 medium onions, sliced as thin as possible and rings separated
    1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
    12 ounces chipped steak (thin sliced eye of round, rib eye, or sirloin tip roast)*
    Salt and coarsely ground black pepper
    Cheese Whiz or provolone cheese slices
    1 Italian, French or hoagie roll
    Dill pickle spears

    * Freeze steak before sliced. Slice it paper thin.

    In a large frying pan over high heat, add olive oil and heat so that a drop of water will sizzle when you drop it in the oil; lower heat to medium. Add onions and mushrooms, stir and cook until mushrooms darken and onions start to look transparent. Add steak slices and cook for 3 minutes or until meat lightly browns. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Heap cooked meat mixture in a long pile across pan, Lay cheese slices over meat until melted. If using Cheese Whiz, melt in a double boiler or in the microwave.

    Slice bread lengthwise. Using a spatula, scoop meat mixture and cheese and lay on bread with cheese on top. If using melted Cheese Whiz, ladle it on top. slice sandwich into 2 or 4 pieces, and serve with a dill pickle.

    Makes 2 servings.

    :drool: I also add a dash of Worcestershire while sauteing the onions

    I had an official version at "Jim's" in Philadelphia.

    The bread was very, very thin, had much air in it, not much bulk. The meat serving medium large.

    I'm thinking there might be a better bread to serve these on- what are your favorites, and is the bread intended to be a significant part of the "cheesesteak?"

    Only provolone works with a cheesesteak. Sub roll. Fried onions (as above). Mushrooms possibly. Red and yellow peppers to taste. Deli mustard. Artery clogging delight!

    Green peppers, onions, and BBQ sauce.

    The Worcestershire would be an interesting flavour twist. Perhaps I'll try that. Thanks for the tip.
