Did you know that the average Cheese Steak has about 900 calories, 40 grams of fat, and 80 grams of carbs? ? And the average store-bought or deli-made cheese steak is also typically quite a sodium bomb- there have been single sandwiches recorded to contain almost an entire day’s worth! Yikes. We love the classic gooey sandwich, but we knew there had to be a lighter way to enjoy it.

According to the city of Philadelphia’s official tourism board, the original Philly Cheese Steak was invented by two hot dog vendors in the 1930’s, brothers Pat and Harry Olivieri. Tired of ever-present hot dogs, the story goes that the brothers bought some steak from a local butcher for a change in their own lunches. They grilled the steak with some fresh onions and spread the mixture on an Italian roll. They were about to dig in when a cab driver drove by, caught a whiff, and stopped to ask the brothers Olivieri for a steak sandwich. Less than ten years later the Olivieris opened the first brick-and-mortar Philly Steak Shop, though cheese still wouldn’t be added to make the classic namesake for another twenty years. Pat’s King of Steaks still stands in Philadelphia, and is open 24/7!

  1. My boyfriend just e-mailed me, “Best lunch ever!” and I cannot agree more! Loved it!

  2. Do you eat this cold or heat it?
    Thanks

  3. How long would this keep in the fridge after being cooked?

  4. When do you dice the meat?

  5. Made this last night and it is delicious. Next time I will cut down on steps and cooking time. Just throw peppers, onion and steak in at the same time and cover with a lid. The mushrooms are really the only ingredient that you should add later, prior to the cheese.

  6. What’s 1 serving? like how much meat and other ingredients should i add to 1 container?

    • Hi Alicia, the nutrition for 1 out of 3 servings is listed at the bottom of the recipe. The ingredient should be evenly divided into 3 servings or as called for based on your personal nutritional needs.
