Vegan Deconstructed Boozy Mocha Drenched Grilled Banana Coconut Cream Pies.
Showing my hometown some love today.
Well, that and there is this restaurant in Lakewood, Ohio called The Melt. Basically it’s a bar/grill that sells a gazillion different types of AMAZING grilled cheeses. Yes, it’s a restaurant focused on grilled cheese and if you are ever in the Cleveland area you have to check it out. They have something for everyone. Meat lovers, meat haters and even the dairy haters too. It’s so good.
Anyway, one of the sandwiches is the Cleveland Cheese Steak. I have never actually had this, but it sounds like something my family would love, and since I live in Colorado, with no plans of visiting Cleveland in the near future, I attempted my own. I am not really sure whether they taste like the cheesesteaks at the Melt, but they sure taste good.
Obviously my brothers were pretty excited about these.
So much so that I took a total of five maybe ten minutes to snap a few photos (which I of course hate because I never do well being rushed). They were drooling with hunger just waiting for these. I am pretty sure it was not even eleven am yet, but they wanted these sandwiches.
They are freaks, but at least they loved um!
The pretzel hoagie rolls make all the difference. This is not how they come at The Melt, but for some reason the idea of a pretzel paired with cheesesteak just felt right. And it was, SO right. But really, when are pretzel rolls ever wrong?
Can you imagine how perfect these would be for a Father’s Day BBQ? Technically none of this is done on the grill, but these are perfect for any dad and any party because they are easy, feed a lot and people just love them. Perfect Fathers Day gift if you ask me. A nice meal, or a set of tools? Yea, I think I’d go with the meal!
Ok, so I think that is it for today. It’s Thursday and I wish it was Friday, but also I am wishing it was still Monday because I have too much to do before I leave next Monday night. I’ll get it all done (I hope!), but I am at the point right before vacation when you’re basically itching to be on vacation already. Like every task just seems to carry on and on. Oh well, soon enough it all be good.

Until then, let’s just eat some cheesesteaks…Cleveland style.
These are quite possibly the best Philly cheese steaks I’ve ever had! They were super easy. I felt kind guilty using a brisket for this and cooking it in the crockpot rather smoking it. But oh my it was totally worth it. The pretzel buns make it even better!
Wonderful!!❄️ Thanks a bunch for giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback, I am so glad it was a winner:)
This may be a dumb question… but could I use corned beef brisket for this? It was all they had available at my grocery store.
I live in Lakewood and visit Melt often!!! These are BETTER than theirs!!! Just found your site and have spent the last several days reading and saving recipes! One question…. what does the number next to the recipe once you add it to your box correlate with? Love your recipes and can’t wait to get your cookbooks!!!
Thank you so much for giving the recipe a go! I am thrilled it was enjoyed. xTieghan
