It is believed that the cheesesteak was originally invented in the 1930s when a hot dog vendor named Pat Olivieri cooked up some steak on the grill for a tasty lunch. The story goes that a passing cab driver thought it smelled so good he asked if he could get one too. Word soon spread of this delicious combination and the rest is history. You can easily whip up our version of this classic sandwich in your own kitchen. And although it may not be traditional for a Philly-style sandwich, we’ve used the ultra rich ribeye drippings as an au jus since they were just too good to pass up.
