Philly Cheesesteak

 The FIRST thing I ordered from the hospital, after having William, was their philly cheesesteak. I have no idea why it sounded so dang good, maybe it was the thought of eating peppers and onions without any heartburn! Ahhh. Usually hospital food is no good, and this probably was not any good, but it tasted oh so good.

How to make Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Besides sliced pepper, onions you’ll need rare roast beef from the deli and cream cheese. You can find the roast beef from the deli counter, and I like to ask specifically for the rare slices. Different brands will be more rare than others, so your best bet is to go to a deli with a good selection.

Slice the onions and peppers until they’re tender and melt the cream cheese with them. Add meat.

I like to butter and toast my buns just a bit under the broiler.

I love cooking everything in my staub, these mini-buns were right by the deli and were perfect for my family. They had a delicious sweetness to them too. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet you can still make these in any pan, and transfer to a sheet cake pan or jelly roll pan.
