As delicious as they are, traditional Philly cheese steaks are notorious for heartburn-inducing piles of greasy meat and oozing cheese on a processed white bread roll.

By using fresh veggies, lean sirloin steak, and smaller whole-wheat rolls, you can get the same authentic flavor without the extra fat and calories.
