If you have ever been to Philadelphia, you are most likely familiar with a certain sandwich that has been a culinary staple in the city for decades: the Philly Cheesesteak. And while many in this city of brotherly love attempt to lay claim to the title of Cheesesteak Champion, only one can truly have that honor. With that being said, we introduce one of the most interesting and entertaining guests we’ve ever had, the one and only Tony Luke. If you’re interested in how this former musician, fighter, actor and family man managed to build up over 30 Cheesesteak locations across the East Coast and become one of the coolest all-around dudes ever, be sure to check out this lively interview with Sam and Tony.
From there we dive into the kitchen for an informal cook-off – cheesesteak style. Tony threw together one of the classics from his Tony Luke’s Cheesesteaks restaurants, the Broccoli Rabe. Sam (despite clearly being a little intimidated) followed with his own take on the classic and essentially created an Asian style cheesesteak with chimichurri sauce. Both we’re seriously out of control good, you will NOT want to miss this episode.
