I have to preface this post by admitting that I have never had a REAL Philly cheese steak sandwich. I have always wanted to try them but didn't want some crappy knock off. That being said..... I found a recipe in Rocco Dispirito's new cook book NOW EAT THIS. I figured I'd give it a try.

I sliced up some green pepper and onions.

Sauteed them with a little salt and pepper.
Here is where I feel the recipe strays from a REAL cheese steak sandwich. Rocco's book is going for low cal but it felt more like a french dip. I poured beef broth and chicken broth in a pan and heated up the roast beef from the deli. I thought it was sorta bland and needed a little sumpin' sumpin'. So I added some Worcestershire sauce and some fresh ground pepper. I topped some toasted bread with the beef, topped with the sauteed veggies and melted the cheese on top. His recipe said to serve the broth to dip the sandwich in.. Hmmm...

Real cheesesteak sandwich or not it was pretty darn tasty. The whole family voted it a "keeper".
