Correct, this is not a typical cheesesteak. It’s using the absolutely wrong cheese (don’t get me wrong, I love cheddar but it doesn’t belong on a cheesesteak) and bread? French baguette? WHY?!

Also, lettuce, tomato and mayo make it closer to a “cheesesteak hoagie” (a topic I often avoid talking about because it blows non-Philadelphians minds.

And although accepted here in Philly in most places… I hate mushrooms. That’s a personal note though.

So… the only thing that makes this remotely related to an actual cheesesteak is that they’re both using beef?

pcsd-c:

Before: Lett, toms, and mayo- not typical of PCS

After: I can dig it.

Get that tomato out of there. Also, that steak looks completely overdone. Is that mayo? BAH!

Another case of “shouldn’t even be called a cheesesteak.” Steak-Ums, in the eyes of any purist or true Philadelphian automatically invalidates you. However, at least they’re still intended to go into crappy homemade, from-the-freezer cheesesteaks. Instead, you load it up with spices to create some sort of weird, awful, over-seasoned grilled cheese with beef in it.
At least you used an acceptable cheese.
