These Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are made with a delicious seasoning of herbs and spices. I purchase steak that has been sliced for making stir-fry, which takes a little less time, but achieves the same results.

History of the Philly Steak Sandwich:

The Philly Steak Sandwich, also known as the Philadelphia Cheese Steak, was first created in Philadelphia around the 1930s. The sandwich comprises of cooked beef and melted cheese, preferably provolone or American, served in a long hoagie roll. The sandwich was originally created with chopped beef, but later evolved into steak strips. The Philly Steak Sandwich has since become an iconic dish of the city and is enjoyed by people all around the world.

Tips and Tricks for Philly Steak Sandwich Recipe:

  • For the best results, use beef sirloin cut into thin strips. It's easier to work with and cooks faster.
  • Add the seasoning mixture to the beef and let it marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator for added flavor.
  • Make sure to cook the beef to your desired doneness. Medium-rare is recommended for tender and juicy meat.
  • Use a large skillet or griddle with high sides to cook the vegetables and beef to prevent them from falling out.
  • Use a good quality hoagie roll that can hold the sandwich's contents without getting soggy.

Tips for presenting the dish:

  • Serve the Philly Steak Sandwich hot from the oven, with the top of the hoagie roll placed upside down on the lower section.
  • Add a side of French fries or onion rings to complement the sandwich.
  • Consider topping the sandwich with pickled pepperoncini, grilled mushrooms, or even jalapenos for added flavor and crunch.
