I don't know how much this sandwich has in common with the authentic Philly cheesesteak you get in The City of Brotherly Love, but I do know my family shows me a lot of love whenever I serve it up at home. There aren't very many dishes that bring smiles from every family member, this is one of them.
You can't please all the people all the time, but you can please a whole lot of them with this sandwich.
Feel free to play with the ingredients; sub a different cut of beef if it's on sale, or switch up your favorite cheese if you want.
No matter how you serve it up, I hope it brings as many smiles to your table as it does to mine.

1 pound thinly sliced top round steak
1 onion, peeled and thinly sliced
2 small green onion, seeded and thinly sliced
8 oz. sliced mozzarella cheese
6 hoagie buns

Cook until lightly toasted. Remove from skillet and immediately top each half of bun with a slice of cheese. Place bottom of bun on plate.
