I have never been to Philly, so I cannot beef on their cheese steak, so this is The Queen's Cheese Steak Sandwich, prepared in the boro of Queens and fit for that corgi loving lady on the other side of the pond. If any Philly locals know the real deal Philly Cheese Steak spots in Philadelphia (not the one's where all the tourist go) please let me know because I plan on taking a culinary tour there soon.

Package of mushrooms (crimini, baby bella, buttons)
4-5 fresh sage leaves chopped
hot chili pepper flakes
1/2 onion (1/4 chopped/1/4 sliced thick)
1/2 green pepper sliced thick
1/2 lb. roast beef, sliced thinly
3-4 slices smoked gouda
Italian bread

In one sautee pan, sautee the chopped onions in oil or butter with the sage, then add the mushrooms. Do not season the mushrooms until they are tender. After they are cooked, season with salt and pepper.

In another sautee pan, caramelize the sliced onions and pepper. Once caramelized season with salt and pepper add the roast beef and sautee until browned.
While the roast beef is cooking cut up two decent pieces of bread and toast open faced in the toaster oven with a few pieces of smoked gouda on top to melt the cheese.

Once the cheese is melted, pile the sandwich high with the roast beef and caramelized onions and pepper and top with the mushrooms.

If you can a hold of a show from netflix called "Sandwiches that you will love" they go to Philly and ask the locals where to go. It came down to 2 places. The show is great!
