Philly Cheesesteak with Garlic Aioli

Why overpay for a Philly Cheesesteak when you could EASILY make it right at home without having to skimp on the cheesy, meaty goodness?!

So I really need to tell you guys about a party that I went to the other night.

It was my niece’s birthday party. Well it was actually Raja’s birthday party (my niece’s tiger stuffed animal), 6th birthday party to be exact, and Jason and I were the co-hosts of the party. It was quite an official party with an invite list and everything.

I managed to get off work a bit early, picked up balloons, party hats and birthday banners and rushed on over to the party.

We celebrated with an awesome homemade shabu shabu dinner (since Raja loves meat) and a gorgeous cake where the kids blew out the candles.

It was really one of the best birthday celebrations ever. Jason’s father jokingly said, “This is too much for Raja! You don’t even do this for my birthday.”

Hey, it’s not every day that you get to host a stuffed animal’s birthday party, right?

Now about this sandwich…

I received a couple of blocks of Tillamook’s Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar and I immediately knew that I wanted to make a cheesesteak sandwich using a chuck steak, cooked to medium perfection. I decided to “Philly” it up by loading up on some caramelized onions and bell peppers. But I still felt like something was missing so I made some homemade garlic aioli and slathered that right on.

The garlic aioli served as a wonderful complement to the meaty goodness along with the creamy, crumbly cheese. I really loved that the cheese wasn’t too overpowering, and the flavors melded so well together.

I’m sure this sandwich will be in constant rotation at our house!

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I was looking for something steak related to make a few months ago for my boyfriend and I. He loves steak but I wanted something different, not your typical meat and potatoes– and I came across this recipe. He absolutely LOVED it. I’m back to this page today because he’s asked for it again for dinner tonight! ….but shhhh! don’t tell him about the mayo. Thank you for this, it is so easy yet so impressive and tastes SO good.

    I’ve made other dishes form your website since then and I am basically obsessed!
