What is the original Philly Cheese Steak?
There are several ideas out there on what makes the original Philly Cheese Steak. Legend has it that one day in 1930, a Philadelphia hot dog vendor name Pat Olivieri finally had enough of eating hot dogs for lunch. So, he bought some thinly sliced rib-eye steak from the local butcher, fried it on his hot dog grill, and added some onions. Put that into a hot dog bun and the Philly Cheese Steak was born.
Does Philly Cheese Steak have sauce?
No. However, if you want to change up yours, add some. I like to order the Steak Sandwich at Subway. It’s basically a Philly Cheese Steak, I add provolone cheese, onions and, I add Ranch dressing. Sounds weird, tastes good.
What is the best cheese for cheesesteaks?
Mozzarella is typically the cheese of choice, however, Provolone is more often used on the steak hoagie.
