How to Cook a Homemade Philly Cheesesteak Easy, Delicious, Quick and Cheap!
Create a Famous Dish, at Home, Delicious and Easy on a Frugal Budget that All Can Afford
One day my wife talked to me about Philly Cheesesteaks, how easy they seem to be to make and yet how there were hardly any restaurants in ‘our City’ that made it. I researched online, reading multiple lines of text, watching various videos, commenting and rating the various content I came across, and finally took the plunge to take action and see for myself how easy and delicious (and quick) it could be! Note: this was several months ago and since then quite a few restaurants have indeed attempted to recreate the famous Philly Cheesesteaks. I still recommend the homemade version, as its fun to create, delicious to eat and in these troubling economic times for all, a great way to be frugal and cost conscious!
I used delicious sukiyaki meat from the local supermarket, (but you could easily purchase other meat and slice the meat thinly), regular onions, and Kraft QuickMelt Cheese and half sized baguettes. I figure my total costs to make about 4 (four) came to about $10.
Slice the baguette down the middle, chop two onions, slicing off the top and bottom of the onion, so as to get crunchy circular shaped onion rings, and then grate about a half cup of cheese per portion.
If you are oil conscious, lightly grease your pan with low fat unsaturated butter (not oil) – if you do NOT care proceed with a tablespoon or two of sunflower oil, and set the heat on medium. Once the butter/oil is moderately hot, put in the onions, stirring them around quickly. As the onions start to become less crunchy, put the to one side ad put in the meat and start cooking it until the meat becomes brown. You can then add a little salt and pepper to taste prior to pouring the grated cheese over the meat to melt.
You can then place the baguette directly onto the pan to grill the outside and inside. After about 2 minutes you can take the baguette out, placing it on a plate, and then adding the onions, meat and melted cheese. Allow to cool or grab your favorite beverage before admiring, and then chowing down, on your homemade, easy, delicious and quick Philly Cheesesteak! Enjoy!
Second Note: Not all of you will like the onions, so please leave out this step. I’d still add however that onions are not only delicious but great for your blood flow and great for your skin!
