Another Epic Italo-American Culinary Invention: The Philadelphia Cheese-Steak

Here is another epic one of 20th Century American culinary inventions we are bringing to you: The PHILADELPHIA CHEESE-STEAK.



Chef Janine's COMFORT KETO version of the Philly cheese-steak is prepared without the long roll of course. Instead, our thinly sliced, sauteed rib eye beef is filled in bell pepper halves. The beef slices are then topped with melted Provolone cheese, chopped and caramelized onions, mildly hot peppers and sauteed mushrooms.

You will love this Philly authentic keto meal...



Pat Olivieri, a Philadelphia hot dog vendor, invented the cheese-steak in the 1940's. Pat's Steaks restaurant is still at its original 1930's location. The main competition to Pat's is Geno's Cheese-Steak joint which started in 1966. Both venues are in business today, open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


Tony Luke's and Jim's Steaks are the other two highly praised venues famous for their Philly cheese-steak sandwiches.


Obviously it is the quality and technique that makes this almost century old sandwich a sensation. Even today, folks stand in long lines at the original spots where this simple, yet delicious creation was turned into art and and copied all over the world.



Bon Appétit! Chef Janine
