1. I've never heard of Steakumm until today

Brilliant advertising ploy - truth. Are they good?

7. Actually..Deeeeelicious!

As a native Philadelphian and expert in the field of Cheesesteakology, I will state for the record that this company makes a dandy meat and when managed properly gives you about a 6.8 on the scale of cheesesteaks.

9. What's the deal with the Cheez Whiz anyway?

Is that what you'd put on the cheesesteak-umm?

I usually go with some Velveeta. But I'm not opposed to this idea, just seems odd.

I'm a southernized upstate New Yorker.

11. Whiz is the fundamental coating

Provolone also. When Kerry asked for Swiss cheese he was vilified by all the shot and a beer crowd here. Because we are morons.

Whiz is superb on big greasy cheesesteaks. Btw, Jim’s on South Street really is the best easily available mass-produced steak. Pat’s and Geno’s are also-rans.

14. Sounds good

Both of those ingredients are survival staples.

How about the bread? We'll need a readily available freezable/storable ingredient to work with for that as well. None of that hard-to-find do-it-yourself artisan crap.

Has to be a very fresh first-quality hoagie roll

4. Yes

I actually prefer them for homemade cheesesteaks. No gristle. Blot off the grease with a paper towel before adding the cheese. Seriously, makes a good quick meal.

17. I make my own with extra lean roast beef from the deli, onions and melt sliced cheddar, muenster or

 

real american cheese (not those processed Kraft slices) on the beef while it's still in the pan, then put it on a toasted french roll. Delicious!

13. YES!!!!

Oh my goodness, it has been years since I've used Steakummm. Now I'm regretting having just completed my grocery shopping for the week. It's definitely going on the list for next week's venture out into public spaces.

During a crisis people turn to many different places for advice, wisdom and comfort. During the global coronavirus pandemic, many are tapping an unlikely source: a processed-meat brand.

Steak-umm, the decades-old maker of thin-sliced frozen beef used in cheesesteak sandwiches, has garnered considerable attention on social media during the coronavirus crisis with a Twitter thread warning people to question their news sources amid a torrent of misinformation about the virus.
