Slicing Ribeye roast for philly cheese steak

johnandscooter | Sep 6, 200805:08 AM     43

Does anyone have any tips on how to make homemade philly cheese steaks.

I was going to buy a 5-6 lb ribeye roast from costco and then thinly slice it. The problem is how to slice it.

I have read online that if I freeze the roast for an hour or so, then I should be able to slice it with a knife. However, i'm afraid this won't be as thin as an authentic Jim's steak, for example. I'm wondering if I need to go buy a slicer?

Also, I was looking at the Ribeye roast in the store and I notice that it's heavily marbled with fat. Do I include the fat?

Thanks!

John
