We wondered if we could make one of these iconic sandwiches in our own kitchen. The bread and the cheese are important elements, but it's really all about the beef.
Why This Recipe Works
Everyone in Philly has a different opinion about which restaurant in town makes the best cheesesteak, but we wanted a Philly Cheesesteak recipe that we could make in our own kitchen. To achieve this, we found that sirloin tips outshone other cuts in our recipe tastings. And instead of slicing them, we cut the sirloin into cubes, pounded them into paper-thin slices, then topped them with provolone (which we preferred over the more traditional Cheez Whiz).
