Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf with green bell peppers, onions and mushrooms topped and stuffed with Provolone Cheese.
We have a go-to meatloaf recipe we’ve used for years and a bacon cheeseburger meatloaf (this is coming in the fall). This recipe is 100% better than that one and I LOVE that one. So take that recommendation as seriously as you want. 😉
Ways to enjoy this Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf recipe:
- Enjoy as you normally would or you can bake in smaller loaf pans.
- Top with Cheez Whiz instead of Provolone for your loaf pan.
- Let it cool completely in the fridge, cut thick slices and sear in a super hot pan with a pat of butter.
- Take the seared slices and add to sandwiches/hoagie rolls.

Tools Used in the making of these Philly Cheesesteak Meatloaf:
Cast Iron Skillet: This is my most used pan in my kitchen, heavy, keeps heat well and gives the BEST sear ever.
Loaf Pan: Even cooking, looks beautiful and works well to avoid sticking, this pan is inexpensive and lasts for years.
Chef’s Knife: This knife is one of the three most used tools in my kitchen (tongs and my pig tail flipper are the other two). I love it, I’ve had it for almost 10 years and it is as sharp today as the day I got it. (left column, second from the top). Mind you I love it this much even though I have a ridiculously expense knife set as well.
Worcestershire Sauce: Do not leave this out or sub it for anything else, this is a main flavor component and this brand is my absolute go-to.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 small yellow onion diced
- 1 small green bell pepper diced
- 8 ounces brown mushrooms minced
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 2 pounds lean ground beef 80/20 or 85/15
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 8 ounces Provolone Cheese Slices
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a large loaf pan with cooking spray.
- In a large skillet, add the butter and the onions and bell peppers, mushrooms, salt and pepper.
- Let brown for 1-2 minutes before stirring, then let brown for another 1-2 minutes before stirring again.
- Let cool for five minutes.
- In a large bowl add the ground beef, ketchup,Worcestershire sauce, eggs, panko breadcrumbs and the cooled vegetable mixture.
- Add half the mixture to your loaf pan then add half of the cheese to the middle of the pan in a 2 inch wide section (I cut the slices into thirds for the right width).
- Cover with the rest of the meat and form into a rounded top loaf shape.
- Cook for 40 minutes, then pull out of the oven, cover with remaining cheese and put back in.
- Cook for 15-20 minutes, then let rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
