Lindasue, I'm from the Philly area, and we use an ultra thin cut rib eye for cheesesteaks. I use steak-ums sometimes too, but all the famous 'cheesesteak shops' use thin sliced ribeye. See if you can get your butcher to slice it super thin, usually when frozen.

Linda Sue, my walmart carries the ones you are talking about (my family loves them) and they also carry steakums they are on the opposite side of open freezer case with the chicken and turkey products I think they were $6 something for a 24 oz package. I never would have looked for them there but one day I saw some clearance tags hanging there and found them. You could always ask the meat dept. I think they would know where they are located.

that's odd, my local Hannaford has Steak-ums plus it's own store brand. I just bought a box of their brand this morning. Are you guys looking in all sections? Here the steak-ums were where frozen chicken nuggets are. LOL Had to buy some for my son so that's why i know that

Made this recipe, Tooter, very yummy. I used a small can of Hunts tomato sauce with basil/oregano/garlic already in it and used only 1 cup of Mozz cheese total. They came out a bit messy but it looks like stuffed shells to me, as I topped with more parm cheese and leftover mozz cheese.

gonna try to post my first picture of an item i've cooked.

well it shows up at least! teeny tiny shot LOL

This is a very satisfying meal. One is plenty with a veggie.

Smells like an italian pasta dish, like stuffed shells and tastes like it too. Thanks again, Tooter, i never think to mix things up like this until I read it on here

I've looked everywhere at my Wal-Mart and no Steak-Umms to be found there. Kroger used to sell them but that was a few years ago and I haven't seen them there since. There was another store near me that sold Philly Gourmet brand which was very good but that store closed down a few years ago. I sometimes go past another location of the same store but it's a bit of a drive and I'd have to take a cooler with me. I'm not even sure that they still sell them.

For all those having a hard time finding steak-ums i found them at walmart in the open freezer section infront of the meats.next to the mini cheeseburgers and frozen chicken nuggets and such.

cheesesteak manicotti is in the oven cooking! Looks yummy before it even hit the oven!

I added ground beef to mine,atkins has made me a meat-a-holic!
Thanks for this recipe!

so I guess one could also use ham slices rather than steak ums? Course the name would change to hamicotti

Thank you, thank you Tooter. Manicotti is one of my all time favorite foods. I'll have to contain myself until Tuesday to make this. Supermarkets aren't open on Sunday here and tomorrow is a holiday.

Just wanted to add (for other ideas) I have used the "Chicken" Steak-ums to make a Burrito type filling.

I still used the ricotta, but added Shredded Cheddar Cheese to it, some Black Soy beans and some mexican spices. I then put it in the casserole dish and put a can of Green Chili Sauce (it's low in carbs) and baked it. Served it with Salsa and sour cream.

You can do that with the chicken Breasts too. BTW, did you see the Chicken Strombi Recipe I posted? It actually is my favorite!

I also live in PA. I'm in Central PA
I know this is an old post, but I can't seem to find the Chicken Strombi Recipe that Tooter is referring to in this post. Anyone?

Here is one of my FAVORTIES that really doesn't need measurements. This will KILL any pizza craving that you have. I call it "chicken stromboli"

Basically, it's just a Boneless/skinless Chicken breast. Pound it down until it's thinner. Place Cheese (provalone, mozzarella...etc..) Ham and pepperoni (or Salami) slices on the Chicken. Roll it up and secure with toothpicks. Bake in the oven until chicken is done.

Serve it with Heated Pizza sauce.

It's really simple, but it's SOOOOoooooooooo Good!

Hmmm..How about using Steak-Ums as lasagne noodles??? I often use deli chicken as lasagne noodles and you can't even tell..
what type of deli chicken are you using for lasagna? what thickness??

I made mine with Walmart Great Value brand turkey cold cuts. They are cheaper, 0 carbs, and you really can't taste them in the finished product. I fed turkey lasagna to my niece and nephew. They knew there was turkey in the lasagna, but they loved it anyway. They thought the turkey looked and tasted like lasagna noodles. One word of caution. Don't add any salt to the recipe. There's plenty in the cold cuts.
