Why am I posting a Philly cheesesteak video recipe while on holiday in Yosemite? Well, a new batch of videos I did just went live on About.com, and since the Super Bowl is right around the corner (Go Giants!) I thought I would post a technique for making this classic American sandwich. While it's not a true cheesesteak, since I'm using flank steak instead of top-round, it is a great home version. Besides, unless you have a large restaurant-style flattop grill, the real ones are very hard to duplicate at home.
As you'll hear in the video, when ordering a cheesesteak in Philly, you are asked if you want grilled onions or not. But, it's not pronounced "with," it's pronounced "wit." It's even spelled that way on many menus. So, not only can you now enjoy a cheesesteak in the privacy of your own home, but you can also do a Philly accent. Just say "Yo" a lot, throw in a few "wits," and be sure to talk about how the Eagles (pronounced "ig-els,") are going to do next year. Yo, Enjoy!
