I know you all are shocked we have more Philly Cheesesteak recipes on the blog! There is genuinely no flavor we love more on this blog than Philly Cheesesteaks. In fact three of the most popular recipes on the site are the sloppy joes, the grilled cheese and these outrageous Slow Cooker Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches which we make twice a month all through the fall season.
Best steak for philly cheesesteaks:
Philly Cheesesteaks are classically made using thinly sliced ribeye meat. You can certainly use other cuts but they may not be as tender. The slices we use in the cheesy bread are thicker than the slices found in a traditional cheesesteak because we are cooking them for a much longer amount of time in the oven and want to be sure they still stay tender. Other tender cuts of meat like flap meat or very well marbled New York steaks may also be substituted.
How do you cut steak thinly?
The best way to cut a steak thinly is to freeze it partially before slicing. I find 1-2 hours in the freezer is enough to make slicing a breeze and the meat defrosts naturally in just five minutes once sliced.
Can you skip the mayonnaise or substitute anything?
The mayonnaise adds moisture to the mixture to create a tender and chewy cheesy bread. If you skip it you may end up with a texture more similar to a crostini with steak and cheese on top. If you substitute the mayonnaise with butter you may find that the bread is still crispier rather than softer.
