Corner Steak Joint Classic

By the age of 10, every boy and girl in the Philadelphia region has committed this cheesesteak build to memory.


  • 1 Serving of Original Philly Beef Sandwich Slices
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 Slices Cheese
  • 1 Long Roll
  • Fried Onions
  • Ketchup (optional)
  • Hot Cherry Peppers (optional)

Prep Steps

  • 1 Heat griddle to 350-400˚F.
  • 2 Add Olive Oil and sauté steak slices until brown on one side, about 1 minute.
  • 3 Flip onto other side. (If using a natural, unseasoned product, sprinkle with salt, pepper or your own blend of spices.) Begin separating beef slices (do not over chop) and thoroughly cook to a minimum temperature of 165˚F and all pink color is gone.
  • 4 Mix in some sautéed onions.
  • 5 Throw on the cheese slices.
  • 6 When cheese is melted, slide the spatula under the meat and flip into a hinged long roll.
  • 7 Squirt with ketchup and drop on some hot cherry peppers.
  • 8 Savor the feast!
