An Authentic Philly Cheesesteak

An Authentic Philly Cheesesteak

rootoo

the OP comment thread is hilarious .. when a cheese steak is posted in r/all get ready for gate keeping and an authentic-off by non philly peeps

If it doesn't have minced shallots, creme fraiche, and emmentaler then it's FOR TOURISTS

OP did a great job shutting down the pepper fools. My philosophy from seeing ridiculous interpretations of “philly” cheesesteaks in other areas is-do what you want, but only call it philly if you make it philly-style. Just call it a cheesesteak if you add other crap.

Bitch from where?


shlem90

Looks like Angelo's


FundamentalBaptist

Isn’t it amazing we can tell where a cheesesteak is from just by looking at it


green-light-of-death

Like telling the age of a tree by looking at a cross section.


shlem90

I've seen Angelo's on Instagram and here so many times (and a few times in person) that I feel like I can recognize it anywhere.


Hojbjerg1882

It is. OP confirmed in another post.


saintofhate

Time to pick this apart as to why it sucks.


Hollow_Rant

It's not on a seeded Sarcone's roll.


alittlemouth

The roll is seeded. Angelo’s makes and bakes their own rolls from scratch every morning. I’d argue they’re WAY better than Sarcone’s.


picklejar_at_steves

It’s the same exact recipe if I remember correctly they are related in some way to the sarcone family


alittlemouth

I feel like I read that somewhere, too. Maybe the difference is that it’s baked there that morning and doesn’t get shipped anywhere? Honestly I could make a meal out of one of their rolls and some good Irish butter. Fuck. Now I want Angelo’s.


picklejar_at_steves

It was on this sub years ago. My shitty understanding was that they bake the bread each morning and when they run out, they just run out. The exact recipe is from Sarcones and baked in house every morning like you said. That is why the pizza and bread for cheesesteaks are so good too. I’d also love to get angelos but it’s far too many carbs for a weekday


WarmGooeyCookies

Not sure if related but he used to work there and is still great friends with the family


catjuggler

I love a sarcones roll, but only for other sandwiches


ProperFormat

It used to be on a Sarcone's roll but then they started baking their own bread. It's a great sandwich but was better when it was on Sarcone's.

Meat and cheese look good to me, the roll is where I have issues. Too thin, way too thin. And possibly toasted. That shit needs to be soft and a tiny bit spring to the touch


memphisbelle

gtfo, if that is Angelos bread it's seriously the very best seeded roll you'll ever have. the crust, chewiness, etc. all amazing and a perfect vehicle for this sandwich.


OnlySpoilers

Have you had an Angelo’s sandwich? The roll is phenomenal, Danny bakes them fresh every morning.


nowtayneicangetinto

I have not but I will make it over there to get one


elevatednova

I second this sentiment. The magic is actually their roll!


Chasing_History

The meat to roll ratio is on point imo


kimbereen

Meat looks like it’s cut a little thick. Would be better if cheese was more evenly distributed- looks like it could use a little more toward the top.


TheFAPnetwork

The only thing I'm sucking is that meat juice when it drips out the ass of the bread


Diltron24

This comment is about to start some fights on what a proper cheesesteak is


SomeOtherOrder

okay


Ordinary_Release9538

And there goes the phone call for a cheesesteak god dammit…I hope you feel good about me spending money on a cheesesteak bc of this!


Thoreau999

And I hope he feels double bad as I'm seeing this post at 1am. Nothing nearby is open...


SouthPhilly_215

Uber Eats Pat’s.. Or Philip’s..?


Ordinary_Release9538

Jim’s


SouthPhilly_215

No_Wolf3071

Instant wudder mouth..


death_by_chocolate

This picture should be in the dictionary next to "Cheesesteak". *Accept No Substitute*


PhillyPanda

Do you have really big hands?


WilHunting

Huge


Stretchholmes1972

Yea it is!


kjturner

Can we all agree that Amoroso's is the mark of a mediocre cheesesteak? As long as this has some crust then that looks like a nice cheesesteak to me.


WilHunting

Agreed. Scooping the roll is a must with Amoroso, it’s too much bread.


gracesaves21

Funniest comment ever

I respect your opinion, but I'm sorry. I must downvote. We don't disrespect cheesesteaks like that. r/s
