Philly Cheesesteaks for Momma

I went searching on the internets for the most authentic way to make Cheesesteaks for my sweet mother’s birthday and I found Emeril and a fellow wordpress food blogger, Ashley!

We accompanied this greasy feast with Tater Tots (yes from a package 😯 and yes they are delicious) and I also made a key lime pie!

The cheesesteaks were nice and cheesy (of course) but I would have to say that the steak was a little too thick!

4 fresh Italian sandwich rolls, split in half crosswise and smeared with mayo
1 white onion, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 package white mushrooms, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound sandwich steak
6 slices Provolone cheese


1)Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Toast the bread for about 10 minutes.

2) Heat a cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. When hot add the oil, onions and mushrooms, and cook, stirring, until caramelized, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Push off to 1 side of the griddle.

3)Add the meat to the hot pan and cook, stirring and breaking up with the back of 2 metal spatulas, until almost no longer pink, about 2 minutes. Mix in the Sauteed vegetables. Top with cheese slices and melt. Spoon the cheesy meat mixture into the warm buns and serve immediately with condiments of choice!

The recipe for key lime pie is SO EASY! Especially if you use a premade crust, but who does that! ha!
