Somehow, I can't imagine Cheese Whiz being the thing that makes a Philly sandwich. I've seen several bits on the cheese steak sandwich on various programs on TV, and what a couple said was the key was the broth that they slather on at the last. If it doesn't run down your forearms, then it isn't a properly made sandwich. If that is the case, I'll take my au jus in a dipping bowl instead.

I never saw any of the preparers in those stories use Cheese Whiz.

I don't know what % of cheese steak shops in Philly use cheese whiz. I do know some don't. Saw a TV show about Gino's and Pat's in Philly and only one of the two uses cheese whiz. Sorry, can't remember which. I've never seen (or heard of) anyone adding broth to a Philly cheese steak.

Apparently there is no "official" way to make a cheese steak sammy, just what one prefers. I've never been to Philadelphia, so all I know is hearsay.

There's always more than one way. Each vendor tries to have a difference to sell and will tell you theirs is best.

Ive never had broth in Philly.

But it is a very traditional thing on a Chicago Italian Beef sammie

Broth is also popular on Buffalo's "Beef on Weck" sandwich, some restaurants drench the sandwich and IMO ruin it.



The only steak sandwich I'm really a fan of is the open faced steak sandwich served on garlic toast, topped with three fried onion rings and a side of extra crispy fries.

Ok, ok, so it's not a sub!

Buffalos beef on weck is rare roast beef on a kimmelweck roll (a roll topped with caraway seeds and kosher salt). The top of the roll is dipped in au jus and served with horseradish. It's great pub fare. I usually get my au jus on the side. Soggy rolls is not good eats.
