Philly Cheese Steak

I had been waiting for a few years to make a Philly Cheese Steak and after tonight I am wondering what took me so long. Honestly, this wasn't time consuming or complicated in any way. I made a version with provolone cheese and another with Cheez Whiz (with a few jalapenos to make it interesting). Having never been to Philly I have no idea how these stack up to the real deal but I feel like I got pretty close.
I couldn't have been happier with my sandwiches. These were gooey and packed with flavour from the beef and peppers.
I will definitely be making these again!

I decided to go all out on the meat for these and used a couple of rib eye steaks.

  • 3-4 hoagie rolls
  • 2 rib eye steaks
  • small jar Cheez Whiz
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1 medium jalapeno
  •  salt and pepper

  1. Chill the meat in the freezer for 30 min.
  2. Chop the onions and slice the peppers.
  3. Preheat the oven to 300 F.
  4. Cook the onions and peppers until soft, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  5. Slice the meat as thin as you can.
  6. Cook the meat on medium/high for a few minutes until no longer pink.
  7. Line the sliced buns with cheese and top with meat and peppers.
  8. Wrap sandwiched tightly in tin foil and then put in oven for 15min.
  9. Devour.


  1. I'm from Scotland, but I've visited the States many times, mostly on business. One of my enduring memories is my first Philly cheese steak, which I had near to the Philly Flyer's stadium before a game. It was also my first, and so far only, ice hockey match.

    Anyway, your ones certainly look the part. The ones we ate came in the cooking foil just like that. I didn't realise that was because they were baked/warmed after they were filled.

    I admit it's a bit odd that my main memory of the most powerful country in the world is a steak sandwich - but there you go. Your post stirred a few memories - and made me hungry too!
