Hi, not sure what cheese to use but we're thinking of giving this a whirl this evening. Recipe calls for provolone cheese which our local tesco does not have. Any alternatives?

Haven’t a clue what Philly cheesesteak is but the name suggests Philadelphia soft cheese?

How about mozzarella?

Not the wet kind but sliced or grated.

I think they use american cheddar ir montery jack. so a double glouster or red leicester would work.

(philly cheese steak is basically braised beef, fried onion, cheese all melted into one and stuffed jnto a hot dog bun)

Reddit thread discussing possibilities here.

I'd personally use a mix of cheddar and monterey jack.

If you can't get provolone then your best bet is a cheddar/mozzarella mix. You can it from Tesco. Enjoy that's one of my favourite dinners.

I just got mozerella/cheddar mix. Can't wait for the cheesy, oniony, meaty goodness!
