    I saw something a while back where someone made a fatty and rolled it in bread dough.  Any go to recipes for something like that???

    I'd really like to give something like this a shot.  How do you make the steak fatty.  Do I have to buy shaved streak or can one make it at home?

  3. I don't have the answer you are looking for but I recommend you try some pepperoni on your next philly cheese steak along with some extra cheese.  Good stuff.

    LOL---That would be a "Texas Cheesesteak".[​IMG]

    No Pepperoni on any Philly Cheesesteak I've ever seen, but I probably only saw about a Thousand or more.

  13. I make cheesesteaks with all kinds of meat. One of my favorite things to do with leftover brisket. Hell, I even do it with chicken:

    How do you shred / shave meat so it comes out like a Philly cheesesteak.

    It's all about the ribeye steak. Which is what I prefer to use. When the steak is still a bit frozen slice into 1/8"-1/4" thick strips. Season, cook in a searing hot skillet. Cooks fast so pay attention. If you must, chop the meat after cooking. I prefer the strips.

    I lay frozen chipped steak in a skillet and shred with a fork while cooking, just as the meat is cooked and most of the moisture is cooked off, I place in a pan add salt and pepper, a bit of my (secret ingredient) a few spoonfulls of a cheese sauce, top with american cheese and fold in. It really is moist this way. I do 10lbs at a time and serve in a steamer pan for parties, its our biggest hit at parties and is always the first item to go.

    A cheezewiz type of cheese (cheese sauce) is a good base with American cheese to keep the meat moist-like and being shredded really adds to the "Mouthfeel" texture of the steak.

    Serve on a roll. Smoked provolone is a great addition, wrap in foil when hot for about 10 minutes before serving, this also gives the roll a different "chewier" texture for lack of a better word.

    If you are making a Philly Cheesesteak, Don't listen too anyone that says don't use a cheese sauce like cheeze Wiz. I usually use a Nacho cheese sauce or a cheddar jalapeno cheese sauce for a base.

    Chicken Cheesesteaks are on the Menus of nearly All Steak Hoagie Joints in my area---Actually pretty popular.

    I do that with leftover chicken breasts, I'll take the cold chicken and slice it on the meatslicer, toss around in a hot skillet with a bit of butter and EVO and I'm good to go.

    Mrs Bear often gets the Chicken Cheesesteak at Salvatore's. I would only do that if they didn't have the Beef Cheesesteak. (Habit)

    As for that Cheese Sauce, like Cheese Wiz, I think it depends on the sauce. I had it at Pat's, and it tasted like flavorless Grease.

  20. I generally use check eye steaks frozen and shaved on the slicer. My wife prefers that I grill them first. Then semi freeze them., and slice
