When I was in high school I worked for a deli that made cheese steaks and subs (aka hoagies).
We used chip steak a Cleafield American cheese not cheese whiz which is processed cheeze.
Then the owner switched over to a boxed brand which was just as good if not better.
I my opinion our cheese steaks were the absolute best. What makes the cheese steak other than the meat an cheese is the steak roll. Got to have the best steak roll.
I think you can still purchase chip steak.
Here is how you make a mouth watering cheese steak. You have different options. We made mushroom cheese steaks, pizza steaks, pepper steaks (sweet peppers)
For onion lovers we would first place the onions on a flat grill surface. Place the steak on top if the onions. Once the steak started cooking baby it was time to chop the steak and the onions. Once the steak was fully cooked we would lay on the Clearfield American cheese on top and let the cheese melt. Place the fresh roll on top of the steak an onions then use the spatula to scoop the steak, cheese and roll. Next came the ketchup or whatever toppings you wanted. Tomatoes, lettuce, peppers.
If you prefer a pizza steak we mixed in the pizza sauce while the steak and onions where cooking then added provolone cheese.
Yumm!! Almost feel like going aout and gettin one now.
I did this for almost 4 years part time while in high school.
