Well, yes, I do usually make my Philly cheese steak sandwiches with thin-sliced rib eye steak. But I came upon some nicely-priced beef tenderloin, and since I had some odd-shaped pieces left after trimming it to make filet mignon, I decided to cook up this crazy good deluxe Philly cheese steak. It’s like the classic, but with a really fancy twist. Super tender, super juicy and super flavorful.

It’s Different. And Delicious.

I love the addition of garlic salt to this deluxe Philly cheese steak. It adds a nice different flavor beyond just salt and black pepper. Don’t go crazy with the garlic salt, but make sure to add enough to taste it.

Don’t tell anyone, but sometimes I put mayonnaise on my cheese steak. Oh my goodness, the horror! 🙂

For a twist, grill your Philly cheese steak!
