    Mashups can go both ways.  There are some that are great, even better than the original, and then there are some that just tank and would be better off left alone.  Luckily in this case we take two of my favorite foods – Philly Cheese Steaks and Mac n Cheese and mash them into this awesome Philly Mac-n-Cheese Steak.

    We’ve basically turned the cheesesteak inside out, replacing the bun with pasta and overloading it with cheese.  And yes, it’s as good as it sounds.

    What I’ve found to be the secrets to a great Philly Cheese Steak are:

    -Slice the meat as thin as possible (I grabbed a similar knife off Amazon for under $20 and it works great)

    -Season with basic salt, coarse pepper and olive oil and a cast iron skillet

    -Dice the meat as small as possible and mix the cheese in with it (Using a cleaver helps, I got this one off Amazon for about $17)

    -Cook the onion with the meat and don’t hold back, they add good flavor

    Traditionally, Philly Cheese Steaks are made using rib-eye or top round, but you can use other cuts of beef as well.  I usually choose a thick cut steak with good marbling and color.  If you toss it in the freezer for 20 or 30 minutes it can be much easier to slice thinner pieces.

    History of Cheese Steaks

    They’ve even got a list of the top ten places to grab a Cheese Steak while in Philly.  My favorite comes in as their #8, but a place I’ve visited at least a dozen times myself and will go out of the way for, Dalessandro’s Steaks.
