Our sibling site Philly Homegrown has teamed up with Frog Commissary founder, chef and author Steve Poses to produce a farm-fresh take on the iconic Philly cheesesteak.
This Wednesday at 11 a.m., Chef Poses will be dishing out 250 authentic Philly cheesesteaks made entirely from ingredients grown and produced within the area’s 100-mile foodshed.
The 250 cheesesteaks will then be quartered providing 1,000 samples to be given out to attendees and passersby for free.
Some of the signature ingredients being used: 150 pounds of chipped grass-fed organic beef from Landisdale Farm; 50 pounds of organic colby cheese from Mountain Meadows Colby; 25 pounds of organic onions from Landisdale Farm; 25 pounds of sweet and hot peppers from McCann Farm; and 208 feet of bread from Sarcone’s.
After the event, the featured all-local cheesesteak will be available for purchase for a limited time (August 26-29) at Ben’s Bistro in The Franklin Institute Science Museum. Note: The restaurant is open to the public daily and does not require museum admission.
