Last night we made homemade Philly steak sandwiches by shredding up leftover pot roast from a few nights ago. Yum. (No authenticity criticism shall be permitted; my Pennsylvania native wife loved them. And she did a double take when I said "we have to stop at the store to buy hoagie rolls.")

Did she smack you, appropriately, for calling them "Philly steak sandwiches"?;-)

You made pot roast in Philly for authenticity?

No, they have Philadelphia cream cheese on them. That's about as authentic as you can get.

LOL...now, I'm officially afraid. Next, you'll tell me that you chopped up some lox in it, too. ;-)

I lived in Pennsylvania long enough to know that they're simply called "steak sandwiches" or "cheese steaks" there ... but either phrase has a tendency to confuse a portion of the global audience.

And since Pat's still uses "cheez whiz" I consider authenticity to be optional.

I would have to give a hearty "no thank you!" to cheez whiz, as well. It's, admittedly, been many years since I've had Cheez Wiz, but I just don't think I'd like it nowadays.

I thought "The Wizz" went on a cheese steak not cream cheese.

But Geno's uses mozzarella, and most hoagie and cheesesteak shops use American, mozzarella or provolone.

Personally, I wouldn't do Pat's or Geno's...too touristy. I'm just as happy going to the little mom-and-pop pizza shop on the corner and getting a hoagie or cheesesteak there.

Actually, the best cheesesteak I ever had was not in Philadelphia, but in Reading. It was at the cafeteria of AT&T Microelectronics (or Lucent or whatever it's called now) where I did my internship in 1993. The grill cook there made them like no other.

There are some places here in NY that get it right but it's not like in Pennsylvania where you can walk into any pizza shop and have a good chance of getting a cheesesteak done right. And that's probably a good thing for you guys because they don't have anything that resembles good pizza there :)

If Mitt Romney had a cheese steak, he's eat it with a fork and knife.

I'll vehemently disagree with you on the pizza issue...especially since I'd moved to the midwest, and they think, out there, that pizza was meant to be "party cut". *shudder*

Interestingly enough, "party cut" originated in Chicago. That's how they cut what passes for thin crust pizza over there. ("deep dish" on the other hand is quite tasty, but I don't consider it to be pizza.)

It still didn't strike me as what I wanted to eat. ;-)

Here's a fun experiment I wish I had tried as a kid.

You'll need grapefruit juice, and a bowl of cereal with milk.

Try a few swallows of grapefruit juice. Pay careful attention to how sweet it tastes (it's a sour drink, but it still has some sweetness to it).

Then, eat a bowl of cereal with milk.

Finally, try some more swallows of grapefruit juice.

The second time you try the grapefruit juice, it tastes very, very bitter.
Apparently, the milk interacts with something in the juice to make it bitter.

For years, I avoided grapefruit juice because I thought it was extremely bitter. Only recently have I tried it again, and noticed none of the bitterness I remembered as a kid. Well, as a kid, I used to drink it with a bowl of cereal, and nobody ever told me about this interaction.

I actually like the flavor of grapefruit, now that I don't have to worry about it interacting with milk.

I'm no biochemist, but if I had to guess, there's probably no direct interaction, per se, but more that something in the milk is latching onto the taste buds and preventing any sugars in the grapefruit juice from being sensed.

Interestingly, it seems that grapefruit juice also interacts with various medications.  It's a pesky little thing...
