Here is a link to a number of spiedie recipes published in our local paper today. I have never made spiedies so I don't know how good the recipes are.

Anybody know when speidies became popular? I grew up in Syracuse, NY in the 60's and 70's and never heard of them until about 10 years ago. I left NYS in early 1982 and didn't return until mid 2007.

Yes there was Sharkey's and the other place,,, Cortese's I think it was. What ever they were, they had to be put on Roma's sliced Italian bread or they just weren't right ;)

Just a matter of geography Smitty. Here its just a "sub".

Funny how thing are different by location. I bought a cheesteak sub or "grindaah" and only wanted mayo and onion on it. The guy at the counter told me I could get my a@# kicked in Philly for ordering one with mayo. :lol:

Good Lorg ceccil,that's why there's olive oil---or a real good tomato sauce---I don't think you're even allowed to own mayo in South Philly :lol:

I lived in the Philly area for 25 years. He's full of it. In Philly a cheesesteak is usually some form of beef with cheese, fried onions, on an Amoroso roll. What varies is the quality of the ingredients. Pat's and Geno's are generally the worst in that regard.

Pat's uses cheese whiz. You are much better off with Jim's steaks on South street which uses real cheese and cooks the steak and onions right in front of you. Optional ingredients are sweet peppers, hot peppers, and yes, mayo. North and West of Philly they like tomato sauce on their cheesesteaks and it is not optional. In Philly that's called a Pizza steak and in South Philly you don't order it with sauce you order it with gravey.

In the 25 years I was down there the best cheesesteaks were never Pat's or Geno's but usually Jim's or other independent restaurants. Most often they were in the 'burbs (suburbs).

Oh gee wlape,--the burbs huh :( now there was one place up by the Erlen Theater on Cheltenham Ave--that copied Pat's original recipe that was pretty decent--of course I've got quite a few yrs on ya,& when I used to do an ocassional week-end at Grandmom Altomaris' in S Philly we always did Pats for cheesesteaks or hoagies--back when,nobody even knew what cheezewiz was.A person coulda got shot for useing it---Grandmom died about 35 yrs ago so I haven't been to Pats or S Philly since--most of my uncles moved north to Montg. County(Elkins Park)the uppity folk--my folks kept going & ended up around Doylestown(Upper Black Eddy) right on the Delaware.My Dad was from around the Chesapeake Bay area,Native(Delaware Tribe)--also,with the Cheesesteak you got onions,peppers & an outlandish sauce to top it off--it wasen't,would you like sauce? it was a given & it damn sure wasen't GRAVY---seeeee ya, ya young suburban yuppie. toothy :surrender: ---later my friend ;) Next time you get to South St,check out if the "Store of the Stars' is still alive (clothing) all the Do-Wop guys used to make it a point to shop there---along w/ The Geeter w/ the Heater(Jerry Blavitt) Joey Bishop & many others--this was in the late 60's and very early 70's :P
