So what is the best cheese on a Philly Cheese Steak anyways?
Of course there is the cheese debate and boy that can get heated! I’ve chosen to top mine with Mozzarella for it’s melting factor but there are other options and we often will add EXTRA cheese to our home made sandwiches. We are a cheese loving family and generally have many options available. I like to put them all out so everyone can build their own to their liking.
- American Cheese
- Cheez Whiz

How to make Easy Philly Cheese Steak Skillet
Kitchen Tip: Slicing meat thinly enough so it doesn’t over cook can sometimes be a challenge. I always put my meat in the freezer for about 10 minutes so that it is partially frozen and much easier to slice. Also don’t forget to cut it across the grain for the most tender results.
