Ok, I’m just going to leave this action right here so you can enjoy for a second.
One of the things we love to cook on the Blackstone grill is Philly Cheesesteaks. Or Cheese Steaks. IDK, it seems like it should be one word.
How to get the meat really tender…
You really can use any cut for this but I prefer a cut where the grain of the meat runs on the long end, something like tenderloin, sirloin, or eye of round.
I will freeze and slice my meat (it slices better if it’s at least partially frozen) on a meat slicer. If you want the meat to be tender you have to slice it across the grain thinly, doing that you can use just about any meat.
I use this one. It wasn’t terribly expensive and it definitely does the job. Love it for cutting cold cuts, charcuterie, meat for Hotpot. I’ve definitely gotten my money’s worth out of it.
As you can see, nice and thin, and across the grain. This was actually brisket that I had left from something else, so you have to be a little crafty due to the grain running everywhere, but it was fine.
Onions, jalapeno peppers, and red, orange and yellow peppers. And of course your beautiful King Arthur Flout Italian Sub Bun
Try to do that with just any bun and not have it break! But these are amazingly chewy.
And cook your meat and peppers. We cook the peppers and onions just a little longer. The meat is just seasoned with straight up seasoning salt.
This is on our Blackstone grill. We love that grill, I’m telling you it was the best Father’s day (but really for me) present.
Warm and toast your buttered buns.
Add your homemade cheez whiz (because it’s a cheesesteak. Which gets cheez whiz).
This was one of those dinners where like after every bite someone sighed and said “Oh wow, this is soooo good”.
