Cheesesteak Sandwich

中文菜谱: Cheesesteak 三明治

During our last trip to Philadelphia, we had some really awesome Philly cheesesteak sandwiches.  I decide to create my own version of Philly cheesesteak at home.  Although they are are not done in the authentic way, they surely taste as good as I expected! O(∩_∩)O~

Ok, it is a little bit embarrassing.  I forgot to buy steaks and I didn’t notice that until I was about to slice the meat.  So I substituted with chuckeye roast beef.  Not bad at all!


1 to 1 1/2 pounds steak (I substitute with chuckeye roast beef)
4 oz cheddar cheese, sliced
1/2onion, thinly sliced
oil for grilling
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 bread rolls (authentic Philly cheesesteak calls for hoagie or torpedo rolls.  I can’t find it in local grocery store and I substitute with Italian rolls)
1 to 2 teaspoons of softened butter

sauce: (well, I develop the sauce according to our own preference)

Chicken stock
soy sauce
oyster sauce
sesame oil



Thaw the frozen beef overnight in fridge. Thinly slice it with a meat slicer .

Preheat the grill with a thick cast iron griddle in the center to 425F/218C

Add some oil and then add thinly sliced beef.

Scramble and brown the beef on the griddle with a spatula or tong.

Add thinly sliced onion.

Sauté together

Add sauce and spread the cheese slices on top

Cut the bread open and spread with butter.  Toast on the grill for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Cover the grill with its lid.  The cheese will melt faster and more evenly.

The grill is really hot.  So we have to use a spatula to stuff the bread

Stuff as much meat as you like O(∩_∩)O~

It is not authentic cheese steak, but it is definitely a great sandwich! O(∩_∩)O~
