Stupid to copy Pat's or Gino's, as one poster mentions below, the best cheese steaks (and hoagies) are the the neighborhood deli. They do NOT use cheese whis, and they do or should use Amoroso's rolls. And most cheese steaks do not have peppers or mushrooms (its optional), but do have good thin steak, american cheese, and onions. Subway has to be the worst in world. My favorite is Phil and Jim's in Chester PA. (especially for hoagies).

This recipe was easy and delicious. I semi froze my meat before cutting it. Only change I made was to add a little salt and pepper. I will make thus again.

Philadelphians grow up eating steak sandwiches and will argue with anyone at any time about which best "steak joint" is best. It's usually the one at the end of the block in your old neighborhood, and that's probably not Pat's. I like that this recipe uses ribeye. Try to semi-freeze it before slicing so you can get very thin slices across the grain with a sharp knife or meat slicer. Another ongoing argument is whether to shred the beef while cooking or leave it in slices - suggest you do what tastes best to you. Forget the process "cheese" ugh and place some provolone, mozzarella, pepper jack or American cheese slices atop the steak when it's almost done before you scoop it onto the roll. For a true local specialty try a pizza steak: after assembling your sandwich, drizzle a couple of tablespoons of warm pizza sauce or marianara along the steak, top with mozzarella or provolone and run under the broiler for a minute to toast.
