How to Make The Original Pat's King of Steaks® Philadelphia Cheese Steak Recipe


  1. Melt the Cheez Whiz® in a double boiler or in the microwave and keep warm until ready to use

  4. Remove the onions
  5. Add the remaining oil and sauté the slices of meat quickly on both sides
  6. Return onions to pan and heat all ingredients through.
