The Philly Cheese Steak is one of my most favorite comfort foods... In fact, Dave made them for dinner tonight. Vidalia Onions are in season, so Dave sauteed one to add to the sandwiches. He seasoned the meat with onion powder, pepper, salt, garlic powder, soy sauce, and a little Tuong Ot Sriaracha hot sauce. The sandwiches were topped off with melted provolone cheese, and dressed with light mayo and sliced vine ripened tomatoes. Yum! So thank you Mr Olivieri for coming up with one of my all time, favorite sandwiches, the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. Posted by Picasa
