Authentic Philly Cheesesteak


1 ribeye steak 6 to 8 ounces (shaved thin)
1/2 onion
4 oz cheese whiz
1 hoagie roll
1 salt & pepper

How to make it :

Notes: Your local butcher can shave the steak thin when you purchase it.
Break up shave steak well and season generously with salt and pepper. Set aside for a few minutes.
Preheat large pan over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of oil.
Cut onion into thin wedges. Saute in preheated pan until the onions are soft and brown (carmelized). This may take 12 to 15 minutes. When done remove from pan.
With a paper towel quickly wipe down the cooking pan. And add a tablespoon or so of cooking oil. Then turn the heat up to medium-high.
When the pan is hot add the shaved steak. Season with salt again.
With a large spatula keep the steak moving as it cooks (this will happen very quickly).
When the meat is mostly cooked (just a little pink left) add the onions back to the pan. Continue cooking until the meat is fully cooked.
When fully cooked place on a hoagie roll.
In a microwave safe container heat the cheese whiz for 10 seconds (only). Stir and heat for 10 seconds again.
Top cheese steak with cheese whiz and enjoy.

Note:** You can use provolone cheese in place of the cheese whiz. Just add to the top of steak in the pan and let melt before putting on the hoagie roll.
