A Philly Cheese Steak sub is just too good to pass up. The cheap cut of meat shaved so thin, cooked on a griddle with some onions an peppers stewing down in the fat from the beef, while slices of cheese wait to be melted into this mixture of love. It's served at almost every House of Pizza in the country. Let's be real, this sandwich is delicious in every way possible. It's hot, cheesy, beefy, peppery and served on a soft and squishy sub roll toasted with some clarified butter. So, I see your point. It may not be the healthiest thing for you but I'll be damned if it doesn't fill up that belly with a smile.
We had to try and create this Philly steak and cheese sub on our Baking Steel Griddle. Truth be told, I really just wanted to hear the sounds of the metal spatulas clanging against the Griddle. You know the sound i'm talking about. The Griddle gives us plenty of space to lay down all the ingredients at the same time. Timing is everything, throw down your vegetables first, cook them and move them to the back of the Griddle. Next toss on the beef, cook that for a bit then combine. You are going to feel like a short order cook in no time. Remember to bang those spatulas hard against the Griddle and enjoy this tasty Philly steak and cheese creation...
