From the Horse’s mouth:
- I’m doing this shit, quite possibly tonight. Since I’m in St. Louis and the only thing resembling (I think) a cheesesteak is at Penn Station subs. I’m going to get a sandwich there, drive across the street to my old work (China Wok) and take the culinary journey to awesome town. I have access to the wok and all common ingredients found in a chinese takeout spot.
Here’s my plan.
-Purchase regular steak sandwich w/onions and peppers, hold the cheese
-Go to China Wok
-Cook up a wok full of gen tso’s chicken (our recipe is basically hot braised chicken with broc.)
-Get 3 or 4 raw crab rangoons, remove the cheese and spread on the inside of the top half of the bun
-Place cooked gen tso’s chicken on top of the beef, peppers and onion and add the other half of the bun
-Wait about 15 minutes to debate why I am doing this
-Collect money won from bet placed with Vietnamese owner and chef
-Brag about it here
