CheeseSteak and hockey

Because I have been eating ramen for the past two months I spent a good deal of time thinking about good food and how far away it was from me. I used to watched food network and as I browsed the images of food in my mind I found an episode that had something like this in it:






I haven't been to Philly(don't live near it) and don't know any restaurant that could please me so I am off to a grocery store. There is a small problem. I don't understand this sandwich. I don't know what the meat is supposed to taste like,and what the cheese tastes like. Is Cheese Wiz something similar to those kraft cheese slices? What should I expect from a good cheesesteak?

Now do you think the Flyers have the potential to win the Cup?

The meat tastes like Steakums, only better. Cheez Whiz comes in a spray can.

Um, did you just compare a philly cheese steak to Steakums? that is just not right.

I prefer melted american, provolone, or mozzarella cheese over whiz on my steak though.

Cheese Wiz tastes like Cheese Wiz... imagine what processed liquified cheese product would taste like, and that's it. Personally, I'm not a huge fan, even though it is the traditional way to get it. I prefer the Roman (with melted provolone slices instead of Wiz) from my days in western NJ.

Sorry but that's the closest thing I could think of at the time.

I like real cheese better that Cheez Whiz too.

Its not really complicated. Cheese and steak on a roll. Fry the steak in a pan, preferably slices of steak, not a full piece(like slices you would get at a deli) until they're nice and dark and greasy like in the pic, and you're free to put any kind of cheese on it, american, swiss, provolone, cheese whiz, whichever you prefer.

I prefer chip steak to the slab steak you get at the "famous" places.

American cheese is my favorite.

Also one of the places I go to in South Jersey definitely adds some kind of spice to the steak, I don't know what. It doesn't compare to an authentic Philly CS, but it's close in terms of good taste, its amazing.

I know it's heresy as a Philly resident, but I prefer the chicken cheesesteak usually.

The Philly Cheese Steak!

I went to Philadelphia for the Museum, but I'll go back only for the sandwich. I had lots of so-called "Philly Steaks" here in Montreal, they're SO FAR from what I had at Pat's King of Steaks...

I don't know if it can help, but Pat's has the original recipe on its website:

You need to buy very fatty thin sliced stake. The roll should be a very good Italian roll. The cheese, well wiz, American, or provolone will work. If you put onions in it, you must allow the meat juices and the onions juices to cook together. DO NOT drain the juice. That fatty onion juice really makes the taste!
