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.

Philly Cheeseteaks on Cheesy Bread

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.

  1. What a great idea. We made it with ground beef, a little more budget friendly and my husband loved it. Reminded me of a white french bread pizza. My husband made me promise to write down the recipe because I’m infamous for never repeating anything twice, but he’s begged me to cook it again. Thanks!

  2. Oh Sabrina, you’re killing me! My family LOVES all of your Philly Cheesesteak recipes, so I now set up a separate folder for them. In my humble opinion, the green bell peppers truly enhance the original recipe, so don’t let our Philadelphia friends’ criticisms about the peppers get you down.

  3. My husband and I really enjoyed this. The only thing I did different was used less onion only because I’m a little leery of onions. Next time I’ll add more. And definitely there will be a next time.

      1. The next best thing would be a toaster oven, if you have one. If not, a microwave will do fine but you’ll lose a bit of the crunch from the bread. Enjoy!

  4. For those of us who have never seen a traditional cheesesteak can you tell me how thick you cut the steak for this recipe please?

  5. Delicious! I’ve made this several times and my family loves it, even my picky college-aged son. Thanks for sharing.

  6. After perusing your recipes for better part of day – went to grocery store. This is the 1st of 2 (thus far) recipes of yours I’ve done. Man o’man, this was delicious comfort food! Thank you, thank you for sharing your recipes! Yummy, yummy on the tummy!
    OH!, and so dang easy!

    Note: only change I made was to use vegetable oil instead of canola .. and Pa suggest that next time we add pimentos.

  7. Can’t wait to try this but I will leave out the bell peppers because as any Philadelphian knows a true Philly cheesesteak does NOT contain peppers. Otherwise it sounds delicious!

    1. Well, perhaps the fine folks in Philly SHOULD try it with the green bell peppers, at least once. They truly DO add a lot of flavor, even IF they’re not in the original Philly Cheesesteak recipe. As a matter of fact, I’ve had the original sandwich in Philly, and I really like it better WITH the peppers, but that’s just little old me.

    1. Omg! Provel would be absolutely amazing on this! I haven’t tried it but it sounds delish! Now I’m going to have to travel back to St Louis to get another stash of Provel. That cheese is perfect for this recipe.

  8. This was delicious and so easy. Prepare ahead and bake at the last minute. Used beef tenderloin and will use again. A definite keeper.

  9. I would like to know how you got 2 grams of carbs? Is it the mixture 2 carbs or what?? My daughter is a type 1 diabetic and she carb counts for every meal and snack. So please help me out here. Thanks.

    1. It looks like it’s not reading the “french bread” ingredient correctly. I contacted the maker of the calculator and they have not replied to a number of emails. I would say it 100% is incorrect, I would not advise making this for a type 1 diabetic, sorry for the confusion. I’m still working on correcting it as there’s no way for me to manually edit the numbers.

  10. OMG this was the best Philly cheese steak sandwich I’ve ever had. I think I used twice the amount of meat, but they were so good that I won’t ever order one at a restaurant again!

  11. This cheesy bread is the best I’ve tried. I just made it and it was delicious. This is absolutely my comfort food – perfect. I love it. Because I was eating it with my kids there just wasn’t enough!! We are going to make it again very soon. I can’t wait. We all want more.
