Best cheese steak is in New Jersey. Break all the rules: put it on a Kaiser. Chop ribeye ends. American cheese. Load with caramelized onions.

If I ever find out who the @$$hat is that first decided to put poppy seeds on a roll I am gonna kick him in the poppy seeds.

Pork is a fraction of the cost of beef up here.


You convinced me. 


I will do a pork roast, chill it and put it through my commercial quality meat slicer.


Plenty of good provolone here since like me the delis are all Italian close to me.


I haven't seen rabe recently but I am sure my Italian grocer has that.



Garlic up that rabe

No. It's roast pork, rabe, and provolone.


Cheesesteak is for the tourists.



This man understands 

That is what the locals eat.

Dinics roast pork sandwich was the best thing I ever eat. Better than any cheese steak.

this. pork shoulder, broccoli rabe and provolone is a perfectly acceptable alternate to the cheese steak. love the tommy dinics sammy

I don’t celebrate our opponents with my food choices on game day, I would rather go outside the box and choose Sushi 🍣 pork buns and rice wine with dinner, then later a single malt or two as a dessert.

I work in Camden now, so I'm already there. It's either that or I go to the aquarium for my kid and decide to get lunch.

I worked there (on Atlantic Ave) for awhile back in the early 2000's. Part of my job was riding around in the pickup van. Went everywhere, saw many many things. Gave me a lot of good stories for parties.

This is close to right. 

Fried onions (a slightly different thing than carmelized onions).  And if you want the true Philly experience, you have to find a way to acquire some Amoroso rolls. Every top cheesesteak place in philly uses these.  They have some magically property. (Philadelphia is my second home my whole life. Almost my entire family still lives there. American Cheese or certain home made cheese whiz's are legit substitutes for provolone. note- the rib-eye should be shaved. 





Thank you for this. I am in Berlin and am going to try to make cheesesteaks here. I can find ribeye, fried onions, provolone, but no way to get Amoroso's or cherry peppers... hmmmm


PS embarrassing admission: I first tried (and loved) cheesesteaks at age 13 at Original Philly Cheesesteak Co. at Walden Galleria mall.

It starts with good, crusty bread from your local bakery.  Then get some steak tips.  Put them in the freezer for about 45 minutes to firm them up.  Once firm enough, you can trim some of the fat and slice them very thin (the freezer trick makes it easier to cut the meat of any kind).  Season with a bit of garlic salt or powder and black pepper and sea salt.  Get a grill basket and cook them on the grill, not in a frying pan.  Also add green peppers, red peppers, and white or spanish onion.  Add the veggies to the grill basket once the meat has cooked a bit.  Use lots of cheese (I usually use American, but you can use provolone or moz or gouda or anything you want).  Make sure to toast the bread when the meat and veggies are almost done.  It's super good!  Don't forget to have a beer while grilling.  The steak tips can take longer than other steak to cook.
