Chopped Cheese Sandwiches Are Not At All Like Philly Cheesesteaks
Both the New York chopped cheese sandwich and the Philly cheesesteak are iconic staples within their city. While both have beef, cheese, and a roll, they differ in several ways.
The toppings differ, but the biggest difference is the type of meat used. A Philly uses ribeye steak and a chopped cheese uses ground beef.
The chopped cheese has ground beef cooked with onions and American cheese, and it's topped with slices of tomato and shredded lettuce.
A Philly cheesesteak uses thinly sliced ribeye steak, and the cheese can either be American, provolone, or Whiz.
Both sandwiches come on a long Italian roll, which New Yorkers call a hero and Philadelphians call a hoagie roll.
It’s important to know how to order these sandwiches. A chopped cheese can be built around custom order specifications, while a cheesesteak often comes with set rules.
