Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich Recipe

Go to the Philly cheesesteak sandwich comments page

This is inspired by the original Pat's King of Steaks in Philadelphia, PA.



Spread open hoagie.

Cook onions in oil on medium until nearly brown. Add meat and cook for 3 minutes until lightly browned.

Put provolone on top of mixture until melted. Scoop everything onto hoagie with cheese on top.

Doug's Notes

Some pictures show long onion slices, others show diced onions. I find eating the diced onions easier (so you don't end up with a long onion hanging).

The original PCSS used provolone. American cheese and Cheez Whiz were later options.

Mushrooms are not an option at Pat's but they taste good in the sandwich. I've seen places add green pepper, too.



Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches from Pat's. One with provolone, one with cheez whiz.
