Philly Steak Sandwich

Rating: 4.51 stars
These sandwiches are delicious. I purchase steak that has been sliced for making stir-fry, which takes a little less time, but achieves the same results.

Pennsylvania Dutch Corn Pie

Rating: 4.4 stars
This is my mom's corn pie. We grew up eating this and loving it in the heart of Amish country. It is a very hearty dish, and easy to make. Give this one a try before you decide you won't like it. Corn takes on a whole different flavor made this way. Some people add cooked chicken to the pie as well.

Philly Steak Salad

Rating: 4.37 stars
Great main-dish salad! I got this recipe years ago from a friend from PA. The curly fries sound a little strange for a salad ingredient but they make it different-also kids will enjoy it AND eat their salad!

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Rating: 4.36 stars
I don't know where I got this recipe, but I have been using it for well over 20 years. Works well in a slow cooker.

My Grandma's Shoo-Fly Pie

Rating: 3.9 stars
Classic Pennsylvania Dutch recipe. Grandma's loving attention not included!

Baked Oatmeal II

Rating: 4.53 stars
Found this recipe in Pennsylvania Amish country. Everyone who tries it, loves it!

Best Pennsylvania Dutch Chicken Corn Soup

Rating: 4.62 stars
This is a classic favorite! A Pennsylvania Dutch chicken corn soup - complete with rivels (for anyone who doesn't know what rivels are, they are little dumplings). Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Rating: 4.66 stars
Best homemade Italian beef I have ever had. My mom always made it and passed it down to me, I think it's just so good...I wanted everyone to enjoy please do!

Kielbasa and Cabbage

Rating: 4.54 stars
This smoked Polish sausage dish is great for company, but quick enough for a weeknight! It is super good and easy, and can be prepared well in advance. Complete your meal by adding a baked potato, fruit salad, and bread.

Mary Pat's Tuna Melt

Rating: 3.8 stars
This sandwich gets a crunchy finish with chips embedded into the bread. I use very special potato chips that were sent to me from Pennsylvania by my dear friend, MP. But if you can't find Utz®, your favorite chip will work just fine. Serve with more chips and pickles.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Rating: 4.67 stars
This is a delicious and easy sandwich that gets rave reviews from my husband and brother. The garlic mayo is both easy and delicious.

Inspiration and Ideas

Pittsburgh Chipped Ham Barbecues
Rating: Unrated
Barbequed ham sandwiches are a quick solution to dinner. The barbeque sauce is simple and made from scratch on the stove top.
Mini Philly Cheesesteaks
Rating: Unrated
Miniaturized sandwiches don't usually float my boat, or submarine, as they're almost always not as good as the full-sized versions, but these mini Philly cheesesteaks really captured everything I love about the classic.

Pennsylvania Coal Region Barbecue

Rating: 4.58 stars

This is a wonderful staple of the Pennsylvania Coal Region. It's the traditional 'sweet and sour'. Delicious on a hamburger bun.
