Taking the ordinary burger, to the next level of deliciousness. My Gastronomic version of Philly Steak Gourmet Burger, is jammed packed with flavour, makes for a perfect meal over the weekend, or a weekday cheat?.
Now seriously…WHO DOESN’T ENJOY A GOOD OLD SANDWICH??? I know I DO! Wondering Why I mention sandwich on this post about a gourmet burger? Well, a sandwich is exactly how this burger was born. Philly Steak, is better known as Cheesesteak, or Philadelphia Cheesesteak. The Philly Steak idea is credited to Pat and Harry Olivieri, who originally owned a hot dog stand in Philadelphia. The Cheesesteaks were created to add more variety to their regular hot dogs, and has since been a HIT with many that have tried it.
Over the years, many a fast food outlet and restaurants, have played up this idea, and the re-birth of Philly sandwiches began surfacing. Today I show you my Gastronomic Version of this much loved sandwich, that I have styled into a Fully Loaded Gourmet Burger. This recipe and marinade can be used to cook thinner slices of steaks, that you can still fill into your favourite Sandwich Roll. No Burger seems complete, without a side of Fries, so do find my version of a CHILLI CHEESE SKINNY FRIES idea, also included in the recipe. So if you have tried my Gourmet Chicken Burger , You will SO LOVE this one too. Do Give this one a go, and I look forward to hearing from you in comments.
Happy ‘PHILLY STEAK GOURMET BURGER’ Making to you all…

NOTES BY FOODEVA MARSAY
? This exact recipe for marinade can be used in thinner cuts of steaks.
? Make this recipe into a sandwich, by shredding steak, or add sliced steaks to a tortilla wrap.
? If your diet doesn’t allow carbs, then use this recipe to make up a salad, or better yet, add the steak onto large lettuce leaves to substitute the bread. Any types of bread buns works, I have used Low GI Seeded Buns, And it is DELICIOUS!
? Typically, A white cheese is used for philly steak, but I made use of Cheddar cheese. I like the flavour and the overall colour that it adds to the dish.
? You can also add mushroom to your sautéed veggies in recipe.
*CHILLI CHEESE FRIES*
Fry Store bought, Skinny Fries, season with salt and chilli powder
Sautéed Caramalized Onion and Peppers
