Meal Time with The Kiiiid

Mike: I finally did it. After years of toil and thousands, if not millions of dollars spent, I made the perfect cheese sauce for Philly cheese steaks.

I have tried various combos of recipes and cheeses and beers etc. – I would always end up with this weird grittyness or a bad taste. I wanted my cheese sauce to be the texture of that cheese you get on nachos at little league games that comes in a giant can and is pumped out with a hose.

You can use this method/recipe with other cheeses or mix cheeses like cheddar or provolone, but you may get some grit. Not a fan of grit.

Ingredients

  • 1 Brick Colby Jack Cheese (16 oz.)
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 3 Tbsp Salted Butter
  • ½ Tbsp Chili Powder
  • (+/-) ¼ Cup Milk
  1. Shred that entire block of cheese. I put it in a bowl. If you don’t have a bowl a plate will do.
  2. In a small pan on low/medium (talkin like a 3 or 4), slowly melt the butter.
  3. Slowly whisk the flour into the butter. Turn it down a bit, cook and stir for 2-3 minutes until the flour starts to brown and bubble.
  4. Whisk in that ¼ cup of milk. You can turn the heat up until the mixture starts to simmer.
  5. Turn it back down low, like a 2. SLOWLY toss small handfuls of cheese into the pan while you whisk. Do not put all of the cheese in at once.  You should be whisking nonstop at this point.
  6. Keep adding that cheese until its gone. Add more milk if the mixture looks too thick, a tablespoon at a time to be safe.
  7. Keep cooking on low until it is the consistency you want. Mix in the Chili powder. Continue Cooking on low and salt to taste.
  8. Add to your cheese steak or nachos.
