Recreate A Philadelphia Cheesesteak From Campo’s Deli
A cheesesteak is a sandwich made from thinly sliced pieces of beefsteak and melted cheese in a long hoagie or sub roll. A popular regional fast food, it has its roots in the U.S. city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and is completely delicious whether eaten in summer in the park or taken home to eat in front of the fire on a snowy winter’s afternoon!
For those craving a classic Philadelphia cheesesteak, Campo’s Deli in Old City is a family run sandwich shop that has been making cheesesteaks, hoagies and other speciality sandwiches since 1947.
