A PA Favorite Perfect For Groundhog Day!
When it comes to all-knowing rodents, I'd say Punxsutawney Phil is one of the best. This furry little guy pops out of his hole and well, you know, predicts the future. Although some say it's a load of...junk, some, especially many residents of Pennsylvania, revere his word as highly as they revere actual weathermen. Whether you believe that this groundhog can predict the weather or not, pay homage to this celebrity rodent and his great state by enjoying a regional treat from his neck of the woods, the Phil-ly cheesesteak!
This famous sandwich, which was created in Philadelphia, has made its way around the globe, with other states adding their own regional spin on this hearty favorite. As delicious as some Philly cheesesteak's are, they just don't compare to the Pennsylvania version made with thin strip loin steak, caramelized onions, mushrooms and peppers and drizzled with melted provolone cheese. If Phil could talk, he'd tell you, well, for one, he can't actually predict the weather and two, to eat a Philly cheesesteak.
