The flavors of Philly Cheesesteaks are so perfect together, with savory tender beef, complemented by the onions, mushrooms and peppers all grilled to perfection, and topped with melty provolone cheese. It’s no wonder this flavor combination makes it into so many recipes on this site! 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 you’ll love to make all through the fall season.

Frequently Asked Questions

What cut of beef is used for Philly Cheesesteak?

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 you’ll use in the cheesy bread are thicker than the slices found in a traditional cheesesteak because you 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. 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. Excellent! Quick and easy and everyone loved it! Only takes a few minutes! ?? ????????. Thanks so much!!! Definite keeper!

  2. I can’t wait to make this one again, it was very yummy! A pretty inexpensive meal too. Meat is alot pricier these days but this provides the perfect opportunity to spread it out while bulking it up with the veggies and cheese and the bread is very filling as well. Fed my family of 4 well, 2 teenage boys, a husband that eats like every meal is gonna be his last?and me. Thank you for sharing! Highly recommend!

    1. Delighted the family enjoyed a budget friendly tasty meal! Thanks so much for the 5 star review.

  3. Hi Sabrina. I love Philly cheese steak. Your recipe sounds amazing! Question though, I wanted to make this tonight, but I don’t have the bread. Can I make the ingredients and save them until tomorrow when I can get the bread?

  4. Philly cheese steak sandwiches are one of my all-time faves and this recipe is to die for! The only change I made was to use a mix of red and green peppers. Outstanding! Thank you so much! But hey, I wanted to give you a heads up that there’s a gal on Etsy using your photo on a listing for a “Philly Cheesesteak Cheesy Bread” recipe download. (I don’t understand why anyone would pay for individual recipes when there are so many amazing food bloggers out there, such as yourself, willing to let us have them for free!) Anyway, I saw a pin for her Etsy listing on Pinterest and noticed that the photo was yours. Perhaps she got your permission to use it but in case not, the shop is called SaraWorldShop.

  5. This was the best Philly cheese steak cheesy bread I have ever had the only thing I did different was I didn’t add the worchestershire sauce, instead I added Dales steak sauce

  6. This sandwich was so easy to prepare. It was delicious! I think I will add more meat next time. Thank you for such a great recipe.

  7. Made this Sunday evening and this was delicious. I recommend this recipe and definitely will make this again.

  8. I’m from Philly and green peppers do NOT go in a cheese steak (unless requested)!!!!! A real Philly cheese steak is served on a long roll with steak and cheese everything else is requested by the customer.
    Other than that this was pretty good!

  9. This was amazing!! I did add garlic powder on top of the bread and also used mozzarella cheese and added sliced jalapeños on top. I couldn’t get enough it was so good!! Very easy to make too.
