Must Try Monday {Philly Cheese Steak}


Hi everyone, hope you had a fabulous weekend!
Welcome to Must Try Monday!
Starting today and every Monday I am going to feature a
Must Try Recipe from my Pinterest board and let you know what I think!

Today I am featuring Philly Cheese Steaks Sandwiches from
Christine is Cooking

This is mine

Philly Cheese Steak

and this is the picture and recipe I pinned!

What I did differently and my thoughts!
When making a new recipe I always Google other recipes and see what everyone else is doing!
I am a Texas girl and have never been to Philly, therefore have never had an "authentic" Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. After doing a little research I found many people use thinly sliced sautéed rib eye for an authentic meat choice. For the cheese option many people use cheese whiz or provolone. Once I read the original recipe I knew I wanted to change the meat option to rib eye.

- I thinly sliced approximately 2 lbs of rib eye.
- I did not add green peppers, onions, or mushrooms to the crock pot.
- I did use 32 oz of beef broth
(I think this was too much broth!
Next time I will only cover the the meat.)
- I did not use a packet of good seasonings. Instead I added a 1 tsp of garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder and salt and pepper to taste.
- 6 slices provolone cheese
- Italian dressing
- 6 hoagie rolls
I added the steak, broth, and seasonings to the crockpot and cooked for 8 hours on low. I thinly sliced bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms and sautéed them until tender. I preheated the oven to 400 and added steak, cheese, and bell pepper mixture to each hoagie roll and placed in the oven until cheese was melted and bubbly. Then topped off each sandwich with a little Italian dressing and served with chips. This was a nice and easy dinner option that I will be trying again.
Although I do not think I will cook the meat in the crockpot but rather sauté the steak next time.

Hope you enjoy this review and I would definitely recommend this Philly Cheesesteak for a 
family dinner night.

  2. This looks delicious! I LOVE sauteed onions and peppers. I think that would be my favorite part.:)

  3. That looks sooo good right now! (I think I better get off this computer and go eat some lunch. lol) Thanks for your tips, we've made philly steak before, but I've never loved it. I'm going to try your version and see if it's better.

  4. I wouldn't know an authentic cheesesteak if it slapped me in the face, but this sure looks good! I love the idea of featuring something you've pinned. Thanks for sharing with See Ya In the Gumbo this week! Have a great weekend!
