Playing Rach's Philly Cheesesteak (Season 2016-2017)


  • 2 pounds Roma tomatoes, halved
  • EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • A few sprigs thyme, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • A drizzle or two canola oil
  • 1 pound boneless ribeye, sliced very thinly
  • 4 long sandwich rolls
  • About 1/4 cup balsamic drizzle, store-bought or homemade
  • 12 slices deli-cut Provolone cheese
  • Italian giardiniera (hot pickled vegetables), pulsed in a food processor or finely chopped
  • Red wine vinegar, parmesan or pepperoncini-flavored potato chips


Serves: 4


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place the tomatoes on a sheet tray and drizzle with EVOO. Season with salt and pepper, and toss with thyme and oregano. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes or until slumped.

Heat a large, nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Add the butter and melt. Add the onions and bay leaf, and cook until caramel in color, about 30 minutes. Season the onions with salt and pepper.

Heat a large, cast-iron griddle over high heat. Once the griddle is super-hot, add some canola oil then immediately add the sliced beef and season with a big pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until the meat is just slightly browned, about 2-4 minutes. Arrange the meat on the griddle into a long strip similar in width to the rolls. Top meat with tomatoes, balsamic drizzle and provolone. Using a long spatula, scoop 1/4 of the meat onto each roll. Top with onions, giardiniera, and Italian-flavored potato chips.
