Philly Anyone?

I did these last night for the first time. I had the butcher shave me a nice rib eye yesterday. Wow does it seem to make more when its shaved. Got the skillet real hot and threw on some onions and garlic, evoo. I removed the garlic after about 30 seconds. Then I added the meat to the onions and cooked it up. Half way through I squirted beef boulion base into it and it smoked and smelled deliciouse. Then topped them with Whizz! Heres some more phone cam pics.





Heres a burger we did on hot dog buns a week or so ago. They look like cookie monster or oscar burgers.

Thanks everyone. I agree Cap. The taste of the whizz isnt what I thought it would be. Next time there will be more onions too. It was still killer though. Of course thats my bias opinion. haha

Thanks and great work on the Philly!
You are right, they are very hard to make at home.
Need the right roll.
Also need the right sauce, american cheese and mushrooms.

I told my girl at the store last night " these arent the right rolls. I had to get what they had. Then I toasted them at 200 for prob. 20 minutes.

Dei1c3 - Thank you for askin - I told them thin like paper or as thin as you can get it. Mine (from Albertsons) was about 1/16" inch. It took and made a 1.25lb rib eye and turned it into seemingly 2lbs. It just looks like ALOT more.

( I asked the guys at a local place that has prime beef if they would shave it? they said for an extra $1.50 per lb they'de do it). Your a butcher thats your job! Some people are just ding a lings.

Any big market will slice/ shave it any way you want it and "shave sounds" like a closer cut if you use that term ( to me anyways).

Rag - I still kick myself in the A** for not buyin you a beer while we were in Philly. It was fun but kinda busy. Looks like a fun place and got to taste a few different places.



Rap Up: We went to Genos. I know people have their opinion but mine was Holy Shh this is awesome. Whizz or not? Hell ya, whizz!

Hey Buck..looks like mighty fine grazings to me. I got a big weakness for them januine Texas Cheese Steaks (They was invented in Filly, Texas of course). Ya know my Uncle Jim from down at Graham used to pop the top off that Cheez Whiz and eat the whole jar with a spoon. Great choice on the cheese. I tends to use Velvetter cuz it usually whut is on hand. Seem we po folks so I use Steak Ums. Thats how they was originally intended to be made. Don't neva add garlic to a hot skillet. Wait till some liquid gets build up. Justeen learnt me that. Great job!!

It tastes a little different than cheese whiz but not much. If you really wanted to make a heavenly flavor mix the velvetter 50/50 with some sharp cheddar. The Velvetter will make it all melt together nicely and the cheddar give it a wallop of flavor.
