So I have this obsession with Philly cheesesteaks. I mean, what’s not to love? – The cheese, the STEAK. It’s basically all of my favorite things served in one convenient sandwich. Some of my favorite places to eat this dish are Charlie’s and Fire House Subs. Though, I have a rule I live by – If I order a particular food from the same place at least two times in a week, it’s time to come up with my own at home version. That way, it’s cost effective, I actually know what I’m putting into my body (because I bought all the ingredients myself), and it’ll be convenient for the next time I want to enjoy the dish because I’ll already have all the ingredients at home. I was abusing my Door Dash app with the Philly Cheese Steak orders, so as you could guess, it was time to run to my local grocery store and start making them at home.
This is an easy dish you can make at home for a quick lunch or dinner! Details are down below:
