How To Cook: Philly Cheese Steak

Alright folks, heres the classic philly.

I have probably made hundreds of these things at work, heres the version we use.

First, you're gonna need some sliced ribeye steak. You can buy this pre sliced, or if you happen to have a meat slicer, you can slice your own.

Now, get some red and green peppers and julienne them. You know what that means don't you? No? Slice them into little strips.

Now, get a frying pan nice and hot. Drop in some oil and make sure it sizzles. Add your peppers and keep em moving. Once they start to cook, add your sliced steak and keep it moving as well. Now add some steak spice if you've got it, or just salt and pepper to taste.

Alright, by now the steak is probably almost done, so reduce the heat to a simmer and add your favourite cheese. [protip: use provolone]

Alright, while that cheese is melting up a storm, get a bun ready. By ready I mean toast it.

Now, this is the tricky part. Put your steak/pepper/cheese on the toasted bun.


Enjoy a fast, easy, and great meal.

  • 1/2 tsp sugar (3ml)

  • 3½ cups white flour (500 gm)

    It shoudl be getting really thick by now.

    Combine flour and salt in large bowl, make a well in the centre, pour in yeast mixture and beaten egg and gradually work in the flour to make a dough.

    Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead thoroughly until smooth and elastic - at least 5 minutes. {dont worry about going overboard with the flour, more is better]

    Use only enough flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the surface.

    Allow to rise for 45 minutes, or until doubled in volume.

    The Classic English Breakfast

    How to prepare the classic english breakfast:

    An english breakfast includes
    -Fried Bread

    First step:

    Start cooking the sausages first. They take the longest. Place them in a pan over medium heat with a little oil (or water if your health conscious)


    Get the bacon going while the sausages are cooking, again pan over medium heat with just a dash of oil (to stop the bacon from sticking at first)


    Lets get going on some eggs. Your choice of scrambled, over easy, sunny side, or poached.
    I'm going to go with poached.
    Get a pot of water going on the stove and boil it up.
    When its boiling, use a whisk to spin the water and then crack an egg in the water.

    Warm your beans in the microwave or in a small saucepan.

    Remember that bacon pan?


    Well get that grease hot, then drop some bread in it. Fry it golden brown then flip it to the other side.

    Throw it all on a plate and enjoy!

    Chinese Potstickers

    Had these babies for dinner tonight, mmmm

     4 1/2 cups (500 g) flour
     9 oz (250 g) lean boneless pork, minced
     1 tbsp soy sauce
     5 tsp rice wine
     1 tsp fresh 
    ginger, chopped
     1 tsp salt, or to taste
     3 1/2 oz (100 g) hotbed leeks
     3 1/2 oz (100 g) sesame oil
     1 tsp flour mixed with 2 tbsp water
     1 tsp MSG (optional)   

    1. Mix the pork with the soy saucerice winegingerMSG and salt. Stir in one direction, adding 5 oz (150 ml) of water, a little at a time until the pork becomes sticky. Add the leeks and sesame oil and blend well, and divide into 60 portions. Set aside.

    2. Stir 7 oz (200 ml) of water into the flour. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Let rest for 30 minutes. Roll into a long cylinder and cut into 60 portions. Flatten each piece and roll into a circle about 3 inches (8 cm) in diameter. Place 1 portion of the filling on each circle and fold over. Pinch tightly to seal the edges and form a squat bonnet-shaped pouch. Repeat until all the dough and filling are used.

    3. Arrange the pouches in a large pan. Heat to moderately hot, then add water to cover the pouches one-third of the way up. Cover the pan and cook over high heat until the water is almost absorbed. Trickle the flour-water mixture around the pouches. Cover the pan and saute over low heat until the flour forms a crisp film that link the dumplings together. Sprinkle the dumplings with a little sesame oil, cover again, and saute until the pouches are browned on the bottom. Remove with a spatula and serve. Saute and serve the dumplings in batches.

    Be sure to enjoy these! They sure are scrumptious. 

    How To: Spaghetti Carbonera


    thin spaghetti, one serving
    salted boiling water
    3 strips bacon, cooked well done in microwave; crumble
    1/2 clove elephant garlic
    1 tbsp. good quality olive oil
    1 egg
    freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    freshly ground black pepper

    Here is a reduce calorie version of this classic.Serves one.
    Put water on to boil. Meanwhile, place 3 strips bacon on paper towels and microwave until crisp cooked. Set aside. Mince garlic. Place in large microwavable bowel. Add oil. Microwave garlic and oil mixture until translucent--about 3 minutes on 30% power. When water has come to a boil, add thin spaghetti. Crack egg into garlic mixture and add ample amount fresh ground black pepper (the 'carbonara'). Add 1-2 tablespoons freshly ground Parmesan (or Romano or Asiago or combination) cheese. Beat together with a fork.
    As soon as pasta is cooked al denté, drain rapidly. DO NOT RINSE; DO NOT ALLOW TO COOL. Rapidly toss pasta with garlic mixture. The heat of the just-cooked pasta will cook the egg. Crumble bacon over the top.
