What is a Philly Cheesesteak?

The famous Philly Cheesesteak is a sandwich made with super thinly sliced ribeye steak, caramelized onion, and provolone cheese. It’s one powerful combination between a classic steak and the popular sandwich that was a success on the East Coast.

The Philly Cheesesteak has been modified on the West Coast to include bell peppers and mushrooms but a true “Philly” only has steak, onion and cheese served over a roll.

What is the Best Beef for the Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich?

There’s a few cuts that go well with this sandwich one common one that most people use is the Ribeye since it’s well-marbled and tender when cooked. Another good cut that you can use that is going to be as tender and cheaper is the Top Sirloin that will also be tender and juicy as the Ribeye.

Last but not least you can also use is the flank steak, which is both lean and very tender when cut against the grain. The only difference is that you will need a little extra oil on your cooking surface if using flank steak.

Best Cheese for Philly Cheesesteak

For our recipe, we use 50 g of Soft Cheese and 100 g of Cheddar Cheese, but the most popular type of cheese for the Philly Cheesesteak is mild provolone. Most provolone brands are really good and tasty the only one that we didn’t enjoy was the “aged” provolone since the flavor of aged provolone cheese is overpowering.

Another popular cheese is white American cheese. Some restaurants in Philadelphia add a Velveeta-like cheese but most recipes choose provolone as the best.
