The Philly cheesesteak. It’s not just a sandwich. It’s downright iconic. Just about the only thing that can make this masterpiece of culinary invention even better is making it with plenty of Cooper® Sharp. Try your Philly with that extra kick of Cooper® flavor and you’ll never want it any other way.


1 1/2 pounds boneless top round or flank steak*
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
3 ounces (about 3 slices) Cooper® Sharp White cheese
4 hoagie rolls about 6 inches long, halved lengthwise


Cut beef across the grain into very thin slices. Cut slices so that pieces are no more than 2-inches long. Place on a plate or wide shallow bowl and drizzle with soy sauce. Stir to coat. Set aside.

Tear cheese slices into 1-inch pieces and set aside.

Heat oil in an 11 or 12-inch frying pan. Add onion and slowly brown over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes. Remove cooked onions from heat and set aside in a bowl.

Add beef to pan. Sauté over high heat 6-7 minutes or until cooked through and liquid is almost gone. Stir in cooked onions.

Remove pan from heat. Distribute the Cooper® cheese over beef and stir a bit — the cheese doesn’t have to be totally melted.

Spoon your cheesy Philly-style meat onto the hoagie rolls, then dig in!
