OK, Had cheese steaks in several area restaurants (not satisfied) and after spending 2 years in Philadelphia I decided to try my own.  Went to Lee and Lee market and bought very thinly sliced rib eye steak and to Lee Sandwich shop for great baguette.  Anyway, fried up some mushrooms, onions, green peppers and the steak.  Used provalone cheese for one and cheese whiz for the other.  Bottom line, both where OK but seemed to be missing something in the taste.  Any ides???

If God wanted us to be Vegetarians, why did he make animals out of meat??

Don't know to help the Cheese steak, different seasoning??  But I love Lee's Sandwich shop, whenever I am all the way down at Dobson and Warner, I always stop in.  They started in San Jose, where I moved from.

Seasoned salt, grill the bread. I've been sprinkling various BBQ rubs on my grlled bread lately. Pretty good...
Don't they use mayo or mayo of some sort on the Philly Cheesesteak sammies?
If it comes to a road trip for a refresher course, take me along as baggage handler, and we'll stop in our old stompin' grounds when we're done in Philly. I'll show ya MD, you show me NoVa.

For cooking, lower and slower. For spices, mo' hotter, mo' better. Habaneros rule!

Bernie, I truly believe it is the "fond" (aka crud) on the well-seasoned grill that gives a Philly cheesteak its unique taste. Their kind of Italian bread is also distinctive. Philly is indeed a great food town. You don't have to be Rocky Balboa to appreciate the Italian Market. :P

OK, again Kitch, you baffle me!  First of all, mayo on a Philly Cheesesteak?!?!  WTF?!?!  Gross!  Besides my utter dislike of mayo, a good cheesesteak is all about the seasoned grill and what they put on it.  I like mine "wiz wit" and "wit" onions!  I think Corleone's over off of Raintree & the 101 has good ones.  They are from Philly and at least understand what they are supposed to be!  There is another one, maybe called Liberty something, in Old Town Scottsdale but haven't tried them yet.

There's a new one called Al's Beef as well off of Raintree & the 101.  Haven't tried them yet.

Al's Beef is good, but they make Chicago-style Italian Beef sammiches, not Philly cheesesteaks. Both are delicious! :P :P

Ooops. Sorry. I never got to Philly much, and I don't eat traditional Philly Cheesesteaks, not caring for green bell peppers. And too many years eating effing mall food--Steak Escape/Great Steak--that slap mayo on every sandwich they make. I humbly plead forgiveness in this matter. And I'll file away your dislike of mayo, too. Does that go double for Miracle Whip?
Liberty something wouldn't be Liberty Market in Gilbert, would it? Naah. Not likely. And nothing like cheesesteak on the menu.

Ok Kitch, we'll let your lack of travel up North get you out of that one  ;D  My dad was from PA, I went to school there for 2 years and I still have several friends in Philly so I crave those cheesesteaks.  Jim orders them a lot out here but they just never compare.  That Liberty place is right on Scottsdale Road in Old Town.  Great, I'm trying to work out and eat better and all I want is a freakin' cheesesteak!!

Thanks for the input.  Guess I'll have to try some seasonings and use Mike as a Guinea pig.
