Thanks to all of you for weighing in on my last post about the REAL Philly Cheese Steak. Let me tell you, I did have one with Cheez Whiz last night.
Now, I've still never been to Philly. I've still never had a REAL, REAL Philly Cheese Steak. But, I will tell you what I think. I think that you should eat the damn sandwich the way you like best (thank you Bee Charmer for weighing in on that :)
I don't know if I'm just not a fan of Cheez Whiz (not sure I've ever had it before), or if it was just the restaurant where I went. What I do know is that TEN and I dove in to our cheese steaks....so excited to try the infamous Cheez Whiz version! And we both chewed. And we glanced at each other. And we smiled. And we both took another bite. We set down our cheese steaks and simultaneously shrugged our shoulders. He said "eh" and I said "I do believe I prefer the place with the Jesus statue's Philly Cheese Steak better". And that was it.
We each took 1/2 of our cheese steak home.
Anonymous (hailing from Philly) commented yesterday saying that aged Provolone is the preferred cheese. I have had Provolone on a cheese steak before, and I must agree. It was tasty. But please don't hate me for my review of the Cheez Whiz version. Should I find myself in Philly in the future, I will most definitely try another version of the REAL Philly Cheese Steak....with or without Cheez Whiz.
And I'm not really sure anyone will ever be able to agree which is best. Just ask the patrons of Pat's & Geno's....
I like seersucker. I like boys with manners. Boys with manners, who are honest and kind. I like westie pups. I like pretty frocks and fancy purses. TEN is the one who makes me smile, and together we stumble through life trying to enjoy all it has to offer :)
