Until now. TikTok content creator @thejoshelkin brings us a next-level Philly cheesesteak that you can make at home.

OMG! He had us at homemade Cheese Wiz, and it only got better from there. The first step of this magical cheesesteak loaf starts by caramelizing chopped onions in butter, oil, salt, pepper, and a tablespoon of sugar. Next up is making the homemade cheese Wiz. Place two cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, cornstarch, garlic powder, and evaporated milk into a saucepan and stir on the stove until it's all melted together. 

Then comes the shaved rib eye. Cook it on medium-high with salt and pepper, and then mix in the caramelized onions. Next, take a wide-loaf bread sliced through the center and toast in the oven with olive oil. Once toasty, rub a raw garlic clove over the top and place the homemade Cheese Wiz on top, followed by the shaved steak and onions. Add a few jalapeños if desired, and then top it all off with slices of provolone cheese. Place this heavenly sandwich back in the oven on broil until it's browned. YES, PLEASE!
