Cook them up in a pan, when done top with saurkraut and swiss cheese. Cover to let the swiss melt into the kraut. Serve on a burger bun...

    Here's how Ricks does it: http://www.rickssteaks.com/ricks-steaks-recipe.html

    Also here's a frozen, sliced ribeye if you have Stehouwers available in your area:

      But they're nice thin shoe soling.

        Since I live in cheesesteak central I just call out. I do make chicken cheesesteaks at hone though. Like it was stated before I use frozen boneless chicken breast to make it east to cut thin.

          Another provider of frozen, whole (not chopped and pressed) sandwich steaks is Quaker Maid Meats, Inc. of Reading, PA. I have only seen them in some ShopRite supermarkets of NJ, NY, PA, and CT. They are in the frozen foods section, and are packed in a styrofoam tray such as found in the meat department, then wrapped with a thick plastic. Except for the area behind the label, you can see the meat. This item does not appear on Quaker Maid's website. I only buy it in the winter, when I can get it home still frozen. I usually buy two packages and tightly wrap them together with the meat side facing each other so I have sort of a styrofoam cooler.

          To me, this appears to be one of their food service items that they have packaged for retail sales.

            I found these last night at Stop and Shop here in Mass (I was looking for meatballs in the frozen foods and there were the Quaker Maids!)
            They were in a box though, not styrofoam trays, do you think this is the same thing?
            I bought a pkg and will try it for lunch today, any NE suggestion for a roll?

              Unfortunately, the Quaker Maid ones in the cardboard box are the chopped ones. I have seen them in many supermarkets, including the Stop and Shops in New York. However, I have never tried them. The ones in the styrofoam tray were always, per ounce, more expensive than the ones in the cardboard box within the same supermarket. Quaker Maid also bought up the Steak-umm brand.

              For a roll, I usually buy poly-bagged "steak rolls" in the supermarket's deli section. Each bakery seems to have a different name for them. It should not be hard Italian Bread. It should also not be soft like a frankfurter bun. In the Philadelphia/Camden area, I buy Amoroso's. In NYC, I buy J.J. Cassone, baked in Port Chester, NY. I don't know of any chain bakery (Nissin, Pepperidge Farm) that makes a good one. Here is a picture of what the good ones look like, from Amoroso's web site:
              http://www.amorosobaking.com/art_photos/p_3c.jpg

              I usually heat the rolls for a few minutes in the oven before servng to crisp them up.

              I have bought good ones in Massachusetts, but can't remember the brand name. They good ones come from the small Italian (not Portugese) bakeries. I find that the best ones have a great yeast aroma when you open the bag after buying them.

                Thank you David, I tried the cardboard box Quaker Maid, took one bite and threw the box away, icckkkk

                Now, I will be at the Phil airport passing thru on Sunday, is there a cheesesteak place there?
                Thanks!

                  IIRC, there is a franchised "Philly Steak and Gyro" in Concourse "C" at the Philadelphia International Airport. This seems to be part of a chain you find in food courts.

                      A couple of weeks ago I bought the "Fast Fixins" brand of cheesesteak meat. The meat involved is sirloin. Inside the box were 4 good size"fillets" that looked a whole lot like a well marbled DElmonico cut. To prepare them, you place them in a large skillet (1 fillet per sandwich), turn the heat on medium and allow to cook on one side for about 4 minutes. Flip them over and cook until they start to fall apart into smaller strips. Start stirring to further break them apart , season as pleased and cook to doneness to your taste. The end result was a plentiful serving of meat per sub sized roll, very tender and fresh tasting beef, without a lot of "goopy" fat in the strips. We were quite happy with them and will continue to use, especially since the everday price on them was 5.99, quite a surprise bargain.

                        tenderfilet.com has the cheesesteak meat and it is great but a bit spendy. Also comes with onions and peppers. Also, if you have super Walmart store they sell this package called JTM Philly Cheesesteak kit that has the meat, onions, cheese and rolls included enough for 4 for 9.99 and they are about the best I have ever had!

                          acornlover, the New England roll you may be looking for is Piantedosi. They are sold all over the area and many if not the majority of sub shops use them. Chow Jim

                                I hear ya there.. I think GFS stocks their brand, and can be ordered at the retail outlest stores. I've sent the company several emails over the last year with no replys.. One of them was to package the shaved ribeye in small consumer size packages (similar to the beef sizzlers).

                                    We're fortunate enough to live near a good butcher who cuts their own sandwich steaks. In fact, I bought some for dinner tonight- steak, mushroom, onion, green pepper and provolone on a good Piantedosi roll. harpoon IPA on the side.
                                    I'll think of you all...

                                      I'd go with the deli roast beef first before I wasted my time with a steakumm. They have an awful watery fake consistency.

                                        I am another lucky one that has a local meat market that will do just such a thing. Their breakfast steaks are nearly the same thing just a bit thicker.

                                          Can one use New York Steaks, cutting them up while frozen and cook?

                                            The GFS Outlet stores here don't carry the Stehouwer shaved ribeye. Darn!

                                              Check to see if they stock it. You can order anything out of their catalog (wholesale) and have it delivered to the store. At least it's true around here.. (Home of GFS Foods). This winter has been crappy on my wallet (snow plow driver here), then there's collecting the money which is totally another story in itself. So my fun food purchases have been severely limited. "ARGHHHH".

                                              Edit: I need to get some LeGout Chicken and Beef base this week.. I'll ask if they can supply it.. And what needs to be done, etc...

                                                I just checked the catalog and they do have the shaved ribeye steaks by the case. Next time I'm up there I'll see if I can order one. Thanks.
