The 'Whiz-Wit' Dip

Recipe by  

"If you live in Philadelphia, or have visited, you have probably gone to the famous Pat's or Geno's Steaks. When you order, you have to order a 'Whiz Wit' or a 'Whiz Wit-out.' This means a cheese steak with Cheeze Whiz® and with or without fried onions. This is a cheese steak in a dip. Perfect for tailgating or football games and is best served in a slow cooker with cut-up hoagie/sub rolls. Enjoy!"

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir onion in the hot oil until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove onion from skillet to a bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving oil in skillet. Cook and stir steak in the same skillet over medium-high heat until browned and liquid has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir onion, jalapeno peppers, and pimento peppers into steak until thoroughly mixed. Add cream cheese to steak mixture; cook and stir until cream cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Stir cheese sauce into steak mixture; cook and stir until dip is heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Chip steak is traditionally made from rib eye or top round steaks. You could also use a cheaper steak to not break the bank. The steaks are cut VERY thin, making it easier to cook for cheese steaks. It's found in most lunch meat counters in the Philadelphia/New Jersey regions but could easily be made at home. I've seen Lancaster Brand in my grocer's freezer that would work well with this. Using Steak-Ums® brand chip steak may leave your dip extremely greasy!!

I actually had the pleasure of making this before it became 'Kitchen Approved', and have made it MANY times since. Here is my original review: We just got done eating this for our 'dip night' and oh my, this stuff is AWESOMELY DELICIOUS! I did it a little differently, but with great results only because I wanted to assemble it ahead of time and cook it later. I cooked the meat and onions and combined those, put them into my mini slow cooker and added all the other ingredients (including the optional ingredients) and put it into the fridge until I was ready to cook it. When I was ready, I just put it on low and let it go for about 1-1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Everything melted perfectly! I served it with lightly toasted italian bread pieces. This was a HUGE hit with all of us, even my little guy. Thanks so much, JJsMama, for sharing this new dip favorite that I will be making very often~YUM! :)

Obsessed with this recipe! Perfect dip to make for tailgating or football (or any sports parties) at home. Made this exactly per recipe and received several compliments and requests to make this for BBQs even, potlucks. I've also made it and added sweet peppers as that's how we love cheesesteaks. Can't go wrong!!

Here is my original review when JJsMama 1st posted this recipe as a personal recipe in 2011. The "Whiz-Wit" Dip Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011 Let me start by saying I hope AR accepts and publishes this recipe. It turned out phenomenal! I was going to make it for NYE but plans changed and I didnt so I decided to make it for the Eagles vs Cowboys game today.I hope it makes it that long. I made it exactly as written with the exception of leaving out the roasted red peppers b/c I forgot to buy them. I used my own canned jalapenos from my garden which gave it just the right kick. I am using sliced and halved Italian bread . Next time I think I will buy a couple of french baguettes and toast them alittle. Thanks JJsmama for this AWESOME dip! I will be making this again! Fast forward to 2014... I make this highly requested dip to take with me every Eagles home game parking lot tailgating party. Come visit us in Lot M/N to give it a try next time you are in Philly!
