Philly Cheesesteak Great Debate: Melted Cheese Or Cheese Whiz
Who doesn't love a tasty Philly Cheesesteak? Okay, people who don't eat meat. Got it. No judgments here. I have many family members and friends who are either vegetarian, pescetarian, or vegan. Whatever works for your health, life, and belief, is a good thing.
Anyway, let's get back on topic, and that's about the famous Philly Cheesesteak. I am a fan of course and I've tasted great Philly Cheesesteaks and then I've tasted some that were borderline.
The roll is as important as the steak and ingredients in my book. I prefer a soft roll, and while it's not usually offered unless I make the cheesesteak myself, I like a soft roll with sesame seeds or a soft 'everything' roll.
As for the steak, it's got to be chewable. I've purchased cheesesteaks in the past where the steak is too tough to chew. I don't want to be fighting with my food. There's nothing as annoying as a piece of steak that is tough to chew and has long lost its flavor.
Onions? Yes, please. What's a Philly Cheesesteak without onions? Some places offer peppers as well, but no thanks for me. Just onions, and if they can be caramelized onions, I will be one happy guy.
I have been known to add a sauce to my cheesesteak, and depending on what I've chosen, it's fine, but I know that any type of sauce added is probably a bad thing to the hardcore Philly Cheesesteak lover.
And for the big debate: Melted cheese or Cheese Whiz? And if it's melted cheese, what is your favorite? I understand that provolone is best, followed by American cheese.
I have only had a Philly Cheesesteak with American cheese. I need to try it with provolone and also with Cheese Whiz. It just sounds weird using Cheeze Whiz, but I need to give it a try.
