What’s better than a Philly Cheesesteak? A Philly Cheesesteak Burger hot off the grill; doubledecker, dripping with provolone cheese and topped with grilled onions and peppers.
I just love a juicy burger hot off the grill. Handheld sandwiches are a must at any BBQ any time of the year. But you’d better make it two hands to handle the big boy. And make sure you open wide too because it’s a doubledecker Philly Cheesesteak Burger.
Having lived in Pennsylvania for many years, I’m no stranger to a Philly Cheesesteak…thin beef strips, covered with peppers, onions, and cheese. So I thought, why not have all the best parts of a great cheesesteak on a burger? Now, I’m a purist when it comes to burgers. I don’t add too many extra seasonings beyond salt and pepper because I want to taste the beefy burger and all of the delicious toppings. And a toasted sesame seed bun is an absolute must when it comes to any type of burger.
