    I made this for a New Years eve party using a 5 lb sirloin roast! It was a hug hit. I would love to post a pic but nothing was left!  -  31 Dec 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I did not make this recipe, however I am from Philly and a true Philly Cheese Steak uses paper thin meat, not 1 cm or 1 inch or 2inches. The meat is sliced on a meat slicer you can almost see thru the meat....for those who like their Philly CS with thick meat it should be called Imitation of a Philly Cheese Steak...LOL...only a true eater of Philly Cheese Steaks who is from Philly really knows the difference......the one star was only for the thickness of the steak. I also want to say that when I first moved over to NJ I could not find a true Philly Cheese steak but if you really want the original, try going to south Philly where they use Cheese Whiz, if it is still sold instead of provolone.....Now here in CA, I have found a place where they know how to make a today Philly Cheese last.  -  30 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Grew up in Philly suburbs. I have to say these cheesesteaks aren't anything like Philly cheesesteaks...and that's why they are AMAZING. I have made these like 4 times now and they've been a huge hit. It's key to get some great NY rolls though. Luckily a wine store in my areas in St Louis gets them shipped in! definitely give this recipe a try. It's so easy (throw it all in and let the slow cooker do the work) and DELICIOUS (especially with some mayo lol).  -  13 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
