This recipe is not your iconic cheesesteak from Philadelphia. This recipe pulls flavors from Argentina with our El Gaucho chimichurri seasoning and basically whatever I had available at home. Being under a stay at home order I really didn’t feel like going to the store to grab the exact ingredients. And guess what… using what I had at home this cheesesteak turned out incredible.
Our El Gaucho seasoning is three things in one. It can be used by itself as a dry rub or you can mix it with olive oil, red wine vinegar and water to make a marinade. This seasoning can also be used as an amazing vinaigrette for a steak salad. Using El Gaucho as a marinade for our meat, we came up with a flavorful, cheesy and messy cheesesteak using red onions, mushrooms, cheddar cheese and peperoncinis.
