"It tried for years to make a cheesesteak as good as the take our sub shops of Southeastern Massachusetts. I think these are about as close as you can come at home. Freezing the steak the day before makes it easy to cut into very thin slices."

Just so happens, this sammie is the same in northeast MA. I made one yesterday for the first time and a hint would be to get the rawest deli roastbeef and have them shave the meat at .04 on the slicer. I can't get a really good cheesesteak where I live now in AZ, so I got going on my own and it came out great. I carmelized onions, charred a red and yellow pepper. Incorporated the prepared onion/peppers with the pan-fried shaved steak, topped with white american and it was delicious. I will probably expand with pepper rings and different cheeses but this one was great on a sub roll.
Nice sandwich but not even close to a Philly Cheesesteak.
This was the easiest steak sandwich to make and my family loved it! I used provolone instead of the sharp Cheddar which gave it a smoky flavor. I will fix this again.
This is the "quintessential" Massachusetts cheese steak! Pop the thing under the broiler for a few mins., if you like toasty bread. Serve with chips, pickle and a coffee shake!
Wow! I've never had a Southeastern Massachusetts cheesesteak before but boy it sure is good. I'm used to Philly style (Pat's or Geno's)and this is so "easy" and so delicious. My husband is a fan of cheesesteaks so I thought I'd give this a try and am glad I did. I bought "chip steak" which is basically sirloin cut paper thin. It cooks in no time at all! I cut my onions and peppers lengthwise and lighty toasted my steak rolls under the broiler before piling on the ooey, gooey meat and cheese mixture. Nice recipe that's perfect for a quick weeknight meal. Goes great with kettle cooked chips and an ice cold beer!
Used leftover london broil for this along with roasted red peppers and hot banana peppers. Pepper Jack cheese went nicely with this sandwich and so did some thinly sliced, fried potatoes. Thank you!!
it was a very good sandwich. it was very spicey, and smelled amazing while cooking. I acually forgot the cheese so it was less cheesesteak and more, well, steak. it was very easy to cook too. Steak + sandwich + spicey = the Perfect MANwich
Way to go!!! I just love those cherry peppers in this sandwich and I add some of the juice from the jar to the pan when it's cooking. Put a small lid over the meat/cheese and the cheese will melt faster.
