This recipe uses a mix of provolone and American cheese for a more complex flavor. We also add a touch of garlic powder to the meat for extra depth. Finally, we recommend using a cast iron skillet to get the perfect sear on the meat. We alse have the original recipe for Cheesesteak, so you can check it out.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use a cast iron skillet for the best sear on the meat.
  • Don't overcook the steak - it should be browned on the outside but still pink in the middle.
  • If you can't find hoagie rolls, you can use any soft, long roll.
