What makes a great cheesesteak
Matt Sloane at eatocracy has high standards for his cheesesteaks, and he will not stand for anyone calling a steak and cheese sandwich a cheesesteak. They aren't the same thing, you see. A Cheesesteak consists of only cheese, bread and steak, says Matt, and each ingredient had better be done the right way. Especially the cheese:
In my opinion at least, Cheez Whiz does not a good cheesesteak make. Whiz is for nachos and tourists who want to try Philly cheesesteaks in the airport.
It's no secret that the two most famous Philly cheesesteak places - Geno's Steaks and Pat's King of Steaks, located directly across from each other in South Philly - both offer Whiz. But just because you can, doesn't mean you should. They also offer provolone and American too, in all fairness.
When asked about his choice of cheese, Castellucci said more than I've ever heard him say on the subject.
