Philly-Inspired Cheese Steaks

I've done these a number of times now and they are hits with or without a tailgater.[p]Saute/carmelize up in olive oil some onions, green pepper, garlic and diced tomatoes. Deglaze with dry white wine. Add chopped bread and butter pickles and a bit of beef broth or consomme. Reduce for a few minutes until enough broth is left to be a good bread soaker.[p]Get a flank steak and rub it with EVOO and sprinkle liberally with salt and fresh ground pepper. You don't need any fancy rubs but they wouldn't be bad either.[p]Get a hot fire going in Mr. Egg. Forget the thermometer (I'm on a kick to get off of the anal rententive temperature monitoring thing) and get the fire so you can hold your hand over it for not much more than 2 seconds.[p]Grill the flank steak for 3-4 minutes each side. Press it with your fingers to check for doneness (you're looking for medium rare). Let rest about 15 minutes, slice thinly across grain. Mix in with vegy's. [p]Assemble in baguettes along with slices of swiss and American cheese. Wrap in aluminum foil and pop into 250 oven until heated through.[p]These guys re-heat well too. So, don't worry about making too many.

    WDAN,[p]Blasphemy...pure blasphemy!!!!! "Inspired"??? Swiss cheese??!! On anything referred to as a Philly Cheesesteak?? You have to be kidding. American cheese will work but a true connoisseur will use Cheese Whiz!! You may want to order a whiz, wit, which would be cheese whiz with onions along with the meat on a great roll or just whiz, provolone or american if you don't want any onions. Not sure what your deal is with the deglazing, wine, diced tomato, garlic and pickles but they definately don't go on a Philly cheesesteak.[p]I hope you don't ever try to make a hoagie out there in Wisconsin...that could be tragic!!![p]Chuck (going to Pat's tomorrow) [p]P.S. If you don't know what Pat's is you have no business making a cheesesteak.[p]

  • Chuck,
    You can't forget the "lean over"! If you don't have to do the "lean over"'s not a Philly Steak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![p]Paul
