The BEST Sandwich in America is crowned!

From the Supermarket Guru :

After a long sandwich search, Phil and TODAY have narrowed it down and picked a winner ... Vesuvio's cheesesteak BLT. This Philadelphia classic with a twist has taken the crown, stomach and taste buds of our readers and viewers.



Sliced filet mignon topped with provolone, sautéed onions, bacon, lettuce and tomato, finished with a sriracha mayonnaise and served on a ciabatta roll

1. Saute a 4-6 oz. filet mignon cooked to your liking in extra-virgin olive oil or on a grill with salt and pepper rub.

2. Prepare bacon, lettuce and tomato for a sandwich, as well as sriracha mayonnaise. If sriracha, a spicy Asian ketchup, is not available, you can divert and be creative. Use what is in the kitchen ... spice up the mayo with hot sauce and ketchup; use horseradish, Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire, etc.

3. After slicing the filet mignon, place a slice of provolone, mozzarella, or any cheese that pleases your palate. Place this in a preheated 350-degree oven for 1 minute

4. Finally, prepare the sandwich on a roll, ciabatta or the classic BLT style, on toasted American bread slices.  

Philly is known for its cheesesteaks and its love of sports. Good thing its cheesesteaks are phenomenal. Vesuvio's adds a little twist to the conventional cheesesteak by using the highest-quality ingredients, and is a great place to catch a game.

I'm going to try one later !!
