Philly Cheesesteak is the hometown hero sandwich (see what we did there?) of Philadelphia, and it's the kind of sandwich that makes other regions jealous. Toasted hoagie rolls envelop juicy, savory shredded steak smothered in melty cheese and tender veggies. It’s hearty and satisfying as only the best sandwiches can be. You can serve Philly Cheesesteak as an appetizer, as a lunch, as a snack, or as a delightful dinner!


• 2 1/2-3 pounds sirloin • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided • 1 sweet yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced • 1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning, divided • 1 teaspoon garlic pepper, divided • 8 hoagie rolls • 6 tablespoons butter, softened • 7 (1 ounce) slices provolone cheese


Step 1

Place the sirloin in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. This will allow you to easily slice it thin.

Step 2

Heat a large, deep skillet on the stovetop over medium-low heat.

Step 3

Add 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil.

Step 4

Cook the onion, red pepper, and green pepper until tender, about 5 minutes.

Step 5

Remove the steak from the freezer and place it on a cutting board.

Step 6

Slice as thin as possible across the grain, and chop it into very small chunks.

Step 7

Transfer the tender veggies to a dish and set aside.

Step 8

Add 1 tablespoon of the oil and turn the heat up to medium-high.

Step 9

Add half of the chopped steak and cook for 4-5 minutes while stirring frequently.

Step 10

Season the meat with the all-purpose seasoning and garlic pepper to taste.

Step 11

Transfer the first batch of the steak to the same plate or bowl with the cooked onion and peppers.

Step 12

Return the skillet to the heat, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of the oil, and repeat the cooking steps with the remaining steak.

Step 13

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 14

Split the hoagies and spread the insides with the softened butter.

Step 15

Place the hoagies on a baking sheet and place them in the oven until toasted, about 3-5 minutes.

Step 16

In the skillet, add back all of the steak bits along with the onions and peppers.

Step 17

Layer the provolone slices over the contents of the skillet.

Step 18

Cover until the cheese melts, about 3 minutes, and stir well.

Step 19

Place the cheesesteak mixture into the toasted hoagies.

Step 20

Serve hot!
