Philly Cheese Steak

Last April I attempted to make a Philadelphia Cheese Steak following Chris Kimball’s recipe, but could only manage 3-1/2 stars. Today I had a 4-1/2 star cheese steak with mushrooms and peppers, from a Philadelphia restaurant. The chopped meat was certainly preferable over the thin slices of beef; it made for a softer  chew. The mushrooms and peppers in today’s cheese steak were fairly sparse, but did add nice flavor.

    So does the restaurant cook the same/similar recipe as the one you used…but they chop the meat after it’s cooked and before placing it on the bun? I think I’ve seen that in a few movies (mafia movies – LOL – when the Italian mobsters are taking a break from crime and eating) and/or seen on food tv shows, where the cook is chopping up the meat on the grill?

    I bet they have a secret seasoning too….. Hmmmm….
