The Society Hill 's Philadelphia Phenomenon Cheese Steak

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 56


1 (8-inch) round Italian roll
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 ounces thinly sliced steak
2 slices cheese (American, mozzarella, or provolone)
2 tablespoons or more water
1 tablespoon chopped, sautéed onion (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped, sautéed green pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped, sautéed mushrooms (optional)
1 slice bacon (optional)
1 tablespoon chopped, sautéed artichoke hearts (optional)
1 - 2 tablespoons commercial pizza sauce (optional)


Cut roll in half and hollow out. Heat roll in a 250° oven until warm, approximately 4–5 minutes. Heat oil on grill or in frying pan. When oil is hot, sizzle steak. (Break steak apart for faster cooking.) When steak has cooked for 10–15 seconds, place cheese on top; add water to grill or frying pan to aid cheese in melting. Remove from grill or pan; stuff roll with steak and cheese and any or all of the optional toppings.

Fun Fact: Pennsylvanians Pat and Harry Olivieri are often credited with inventing
the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich by serving chopped steak on hoagie rolls
in the early 1930s. They began selling this variation of steak sandwiches at their
hot dog stand near south Philadelphia’s Italian Market. They became so popular that Pat opened up his own restaurant which still operates today as Pat’s King of Steaks. Variations of cheesesteaks are now common in several fast food chains. Versions of the sandwich can also be found in locations ranging from bars to high-end restaurants.
