Philly Cheese Steak Sandwish

Straight Outta My Kitchen Philly Cheese Steak


    • 1 1/2 lbs. rib eye (may sub top sirloin or skirt steak), very thinly sliced* • olive oil • 1 large onion, thinly sliced • 2 green bell peppers, thinly sliced • 1 poblano pepper, thinly sliced • 3/4 cup freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese (or more to taste) • 1/3 cup roughly chopped jarred cherry (pimento) peppers (optional) • 8 Sargento Provolone Cheese slices • 4 soft hoagie rolls

    Marinade • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce • 1 teaspoon salt • 1/2 tsp EACH garlic pwdr, onion pwdr, dried thyme, dried parsley • 1/4 tsp EACH pepper, red pepper flakes

    Spiced Mayonnaise • 1 tablespoon Reserved Spiced Mayonnaise (in directions) • 1/2 cup mayonnaise • Hot sauce to taste (optional)


    1. Whisk all the Marinade ingredients together in a Ziploc bag. Remove 1 tablespoon Marinade and add to a small bowl with 1/2 cup mayonnaise to make “Spiced Mayonnaise”. Add hot sauce to mayonnaise if desired and store in the refrigerator. 2. Add steak to Ziploc bag with remaining Marinade. Marinate 6 hours up to overnight. Remove steak from fridge 20-30 minutes before cooking. 3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 4. Prepare hoagie rolls by slicing each in half horizontally. Hollow out bottom and top halves of bread, leaving about 1/2-inch-thick shell. 5. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over in a large skillet over medium high heat until smoking. Pat excess marinade off steak and add to skillet. Cook undisturbed for 1 minute then continue to cook while stirring just until no longer pink, 1-2 minutes, chopping up meat with spatula as you cook. Remove to a paper towel lined plate. (You can also chop on a cutting board.) 6. Wipe out skillet and heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium high heat. Add peppers and onion and cook 6-8 minutes or until softened. Add steak back to pan along with 3/4 cup cheddar, 1 tablespoon Spiced Mayonnaise, pimientos (optional). Stir just until steak is warmed through and cheese begins to melt, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 7. Spread each top and bottom half of hoagie roll with Spiced mayonnaise. Evenly divide beef mixture between bottom buns then top each with 2 slices provolone cheese. Bake hoagies open faced for 5 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Replace top buns and eat immediately.

    *To thinly slice steak, freeze for 45-60 minutes. After slicing, steak will continue to defrost in marinade.

    Who Really Uses 53 Organic Living Tips



    1. Faucet water contains fluoride in all 50 states. Purchase a reverse osmosis filter to remove it. A Britta filter won’t be enough

    2. Chlorine in water will evaporate after a few hours. Just leave it in a filter or jug in your fridge overnight.

    3. Though Neogene bottles are BPA-free, they’ve been found to leech other chemicals. Use glass bottles to be 100% safe.

    4. Avoid anti-bacterial soap. Residue on dishes and hands gets in the stomach and kills your “good bacteria.”

    5. Cooking with coconut oil is better than olive oil. It has more omega-3 and doesn’t oxidize in sunlight or high temperatures.

    6. Tom’s toothpaste is a great alternative to traditional toothpaste. It’s fluoride free and avoids many additive chemicals.

    7. Setting up a vertical garden takes a week or two, but can pay off in organic produce for years.

    8. Coconut or almond based ice cream is a fantastic way to indulge, without eating dairy.

    9. Most organic eggs come from cooped up chickens fed organic produce. For true free range eggs, find a local farmer on

    10. “Organically made” is not the same as “Organic.” “Freely Traded” is not the same as “Free Trade.” Those former foods aren’t certified.

    11. Avoid cheap vegetable oils at all costs. They’re high in Omega-6 and very unhealthy.

    12. Most “grass-fed” beef is still grain finished. For 100% grass fed beef, look for a local farm you can buy from.

    13. Most fruits have quite a high glycemic index. The exception is berries (including strawberries) which are low GI and very healthy.

    14. Think you can’t afford organic? Buy foods that are in season. It’s both more inexpensive and healthier.

    15. Have a favorite seasonal food? Buy it when it’s in season, then freeze it. It’s healthier than buying it out of season.

    16. Avoid large fish like tuna. Large fish eat small fish and build up higher concentrations of mercury.

    17. Avoid multi-vitamins. Instead, build your own vitamin stack. Most multi-vitamins skimp on the important nutrients.

    18. Consider supplementing Omega-3s. It’s perhaps the most important supplement of all for the health conscious.

    19. Look up and remember when your local farmer’s markets are. They’re cheaper, and you can ask directly about how the food was grown.

    20. Buy green cleaning products to avoid chemicals like ammonia or chlorine in your house.

    21. Not all food has to be labeled “Organic” to be healthy. If you’re buying directly from the farmer, ask how it was made.

    22. Sign up for your local fruit or veggie boxes. Farmers will deliver fresh organic produce straight to your door.

    23. See if there are food co-ops near you. These co-ops grow organic food and sell it to their local markets.

    24. Carrots, beets and radishes are very easy to grow. If you want to give growing a shot, that’s a good place to start.

    25. Try to eat as much of your produce raw as possible. Cooking destroys enzymes and can reduce vitamin content by 12x.

    26. Soak produce in 1/3rd vinegar and 2/3 rds water to kill bacteria, if eating it raw.

    27. Check the OCA’s website to buy organic foods online –

    28. Trader Joe’s is a great, lower-cost alternative to Whole Foods. Do you shop there?

    29. Subscribe to health coupon sites for deals. com,

    30. Look for “specials” in supermarkets (including Whole Foods.) These mean the food’s in season and affordable.

    31. Organic beans are a great source of protein. Make sure you cook them thoroughly, as semi-cooked beans are toxic.

    32. Quinoa is a complete amino acid and provides your body with all the proteins you need. Yummy and easy to cook, too!

    33. Buy your organic chickens whole. It’s cheaper than buying by the part, and you can use the carcass to make broth.

    34. Most coffee shops (including Starbucks) sell Fair Trade but not organic coffee. Organic coffee is available online or in Whole Foods.

    35. Use the bulk aisle. You can buy everything from beans to quinoa to nuts while saving money and saving packaging.

    36. You can order organic snack bars in bulk, affordably at It’s as much as 50% cheaper than buying at the store.

    37. Never eat the skin of non-organic papayas or mangos. Some are dipped in toxic pesticides when they cross the border.

    38. When buying seeds, make sure you’re buying non-GMO. If it doesn’t say it’s non-GMO, don’t assume that it is.

    39. Make your jams at home. Most commercial jams (even organic) like peanut butter jam or strawberry jam are high in sugar.

    40. Agave nectar isn’t much healthier than traditional sugar. Organic honey is better, while organic coconut sugar is best.

    41. Store your olive oil in a dry place, outside of sunlight. Oxidized olive oil is very dangerous.

    42. Nut milks in supermarkets contain a lot of additive ingredients. For best results, make your own. It only takes 10 mins.

    43. Nuts can be healthy snacks, but they’re also very high in fat and calories. Enjoy them, but eat in moderation.

    44. Bananas are high GI and low in nutritional value. Plantains are low GI and much healthier. But they need to be cooked.

    45. Add a few Brazil nuts to your diet. It’s one of the few foods high in selenium, which is good for your hormones and your thyroid.

    46. Buy good salt. Good salt can add dozens of minerals to your diet. One jar of Himalayan sea salt can last a year.

    47. Avoid Teflon. If you must cook with Teflon, never ever place metal into the pan.

    48. Rice has very little nutritional value, but isn’t unhealthy either. Use sparingly.

    49. Don’t forget about eBay. You can find great deals for organic foods at steep discounts!

    50. Stay to the end of Farmer’s Markets. They’ll often give out last-minute deals to clear out inventory.

    51. Put paper towels on the edges of your fridge’s veggie drawer. It’ll draw the moisture and preserve your greens.

    52. Spinach wilted? As long as it doesn’t don’t smell, you can still cook it and it will be just as good.

    53. Check for organic potlucks and meetups. They can be a fun way to add variety to your diet

    Why Mom Was Right About Porterhouse Steak’s & Herb Butter


    Yield: 6-8 Serving  Prep time: 20 Min Total time: 40 Min


    For The Herb Butter

    • 1/4cup mixed fresh herbs, such as chives, thyme leaves, and marjoram leaves, finely chopped

    • 1/2cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature

    • Kosher salt

    • Freshly ground black pepper

    For The Steak

    • 2 porterhouse steaks, (2-inch thick), about 4 pounds

    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    • 2 tablespoons butter

    • Kosher salt

    • Freshly ground black pepper



    Make the herbed butter

    1. In a bowl, using a wooden spoon, stir together the herbs and butter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon mixture generously into ramekins and use the back of a butter knife to smooth the surface, removing any extra. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator.

    Cook the steak

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Let steak sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

    2. Pat steaks dry and season generously with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add 1 tablespoon oil to pan. When oil begins to smoke, add the first steak and cook until brown and crusted, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in pan and spoon over steak to baste. Remove steak from heat and set aside. Wipe out the skillet and repeat with the second steak.

    3. Place both steaks on a rimmed baking sheet fitted with a wire rack and place in oven to cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the steak registers 120°F for medium-rare, about 5 minutes (or 125°F for medium, about 10 minutes). Transfer steaks to a wooden board to rest, about 10 minutes.

    4. To serve: Cut meat off both sides of the bone, leaving you with two pieces of steak. Slice each steak across the grain, then rearrange the slices around the bone on a platter. Serve with herb butter.
