Philly Cheese Steak

Philly Cheese Steak is something that seems, to this Brit anyway, to be an American food icon. You hear about it on tv shows and in movies so it has a classic status among its fans. This recipe comes before the days of spray on cheese (Cheese Wiz) and uses Provolone instead, which I prefer.

Ingredients:

4 tbsp olive oil

1 medium white onion, thinly sliced

1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

2 tsp garlic, minced

generous pinch of salt and pepper

1 lb shaved beef

4 sub rolls

4 slices of provolone cheese (use Cheez Whiz for an alternative more modern day recipe)

Set aside the onion and bell pepper mix on a plate – then add the shaved beef to the frying pan

Pull apart and continuously stir until the beef is fully cooked through (this will not take long)
