i must say it was tasty.  I never made anything like it before but those peppers looked so good i couldn't resist trying. The Wife and kids enjoyed the sandwich, first time they ever had a steak sandwich, So i guess i did something right.  They are pretty picky eaters.

I don't think I appreciate Philly Cheese steaks from Philly like I'm supposed to. For one thing...Cheez Whiz?? Is that really cheese? And ketchup?? What kind of philistine puts ketchup on a Philly cheese steak?

But I'm from the other side of the state.

Same here. Cheez Whiz is disgusting. I am a cheeseholic and I won't eat that crap, tradition or not. I was so disappointed when I finally tried one.

And mustard, yes - ketchup, no. Not on a cheese steak.

Not my cup of tea either. Especially, not for cooking. My Granddaughter tried it once to make cheese sandwiches with and could not get past the first two bites.

Yea, i saw that show on the Food network where they compared the two types of Cheese Steak sandwiches, i would have to pass on the Cheez wiz.  I like the one from Jersey Mikes with the Chipotle Sauce on it though..yumm. This one almost tastes like that.  Couldn't think of a good name for it since it is not a traditional Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, so just regular cheese steak will have to do.

It should be limited to one use, embalming corpses... Just pump that stuff into the veins and you'll still have the same plastic expression on your face when archeologists 10,000 years from now dig up our corpses to study our ancient culture.

I'm a bit snobbish about my cheese steaks. 

Most pizza places in Philly melt whatever kind of cheese you want, on the meat while it's on the griddle,

or they line the roll with your cheese to help make the roll last a bit longer especially when they add fried onions and tomato sauce.

For me, Amorosa rolls only, grilled onions and mushrooms, sometimes with the "house" pizza sauce, sometimes not.

Ketchup, mustard or mayo? ...never.

You're the one who altered it to make it better, call it a Hunkburger.

Simple Yellow mustard.

Primary purpose?


Although one can experiment in private with spicy brown, lol

There are some things where using regular mustard is good, but, for me there aren't very many. Regular mustard tends to be a bit too bitter tasting for me, so spicy brown mustard is a little tamer. 

I first tasted spicy brown mustard at a BBQ with Friends when all the regular mustard was gone by the time I got there, and all that was left was the spicy brown mustard. For me, Hot Dogs just ain't right without mustard, as mayo just don't cut it. So I tried the spicy mustard and liked it so well that I have never gone back to regular mustard. 

I also use it in my Deviled Eggs and potato salad and gotten mostly compliments. Those who did so just didn't like mustard in their potato salad or Deviled Eggs, do it didn't matter what kind of mustard I used.

I never knew that Philly cheese steaks came with ketchup.  That sounds disgusting.

There's a local pizzaria in West Virginia that is still the best Philly cheese steak I've ever had, assuming they're still on the menu.  I'm not sure what the difference was, but yum.

I think it might be a sacrilege to put ketchup on anything but french fries and fried potatoes. Occasionally scrambled eggs

I use yellow mustard for my potato salad, but I might use spicy brown the next time I make it. But not tell Mr Giggles

I use ketchup of fries and hamburgers.  And that's it.  It's sacrilege to put it on eggs jrSmiley_7_smiley_image.png
