I remember running across a quick and easy recipe for philly cheese steaks a long time ago. I’m not sure where I found it. I have no idea what told me to make it, but it happened.
What is a Philly Cheese Steak?
A Philly Cheese Steak is a sandwich that originates in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (hence the name). Typically made with thinly sliced beefsteak and melted provolone cheese.
It’s usually accompanied with peppers, mushrooms, and onions.
We skip the hoagie roll in place of the simple hot dog bun.
Totally not traditional, but it works.
What kind of meat do I need for Philly Cheese Steaks?
Rib eye and top round are the traditional cuts of meat.
Just about any thin sliced steak will work. You can have the butcher slice it for you. Or ask them what they recommend.
Do I have to use provolone cheese?
No way. If you don’t like it, feel free to make the sauce with mozzarella, swiss or American.
What do you need?
- hot dog buns (or hoagie rolls)
- sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
- bell peppers – sliced
- onion – sliced into thin strips (I like using my mandoline)
- provolone cheese
- parmesan cheese
Serve with your favorite potato chips and my kids favorite, a pickle!

Here are some rifts on the Philly Cheese Steaks I think you’ll like:
- 1 pack of hot dog buns
- 2 pounds of sirloin steak cut into thin strips
- 3 to 4 of your favorite bell peppers sliced thinly
- 1 large onion sliced thinly
- salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 cup grated provolone cheese
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Melt the butter in a sauce pot over medium heat. Once the butter is melted whisk in the flour. Continue whisking and cook for one minute.
- Add the cheeses, continue whisking until melted. Throw a dash of salt in, put a lid on it and set aside.
- Drizzle some oil into a large skillet and cook your steak over medium to high heat. Season well with salt and pepper. Do not over cook your steak! Remember that steak will continue to cook a bit when removed from the heat. Pull off earlier then later. Set aside.
- In the same skillet, saute your onion and bell peppers until tender.
- Heat your buns in the microwave for 15 seconds.
- Place meat, bellpeppers/onion mixture in your bun, and finally drizzle your provolone sauce over the top.
- Serve with your favorite potato chips and my kids favorite, a pickle!
