Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

Cheesy and beefy! No wonder this sandwich is so popular.

Instead of heating the cheese with the beef directly on the griddle, you can try another style: Cook the beef-onion-and-garlic mixture on the pan then spoon this on top of a warm bun. Top with cheese and bake in the oven or toaster until cheese melts.

Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

  • 2 fresh Sandwich Rolls split in half crosswise
  • 1 white onion thinly sliced with a mandoline
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 kilo Beef (use rib-eye steak), thinly sliced
  • 1 Cup white American cheese thinly grated
  • Italian Picked Peppers Optional


  • Preheat the oven to 250ºF.
  • Heat a cast-iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. When hot, add the oil and onions. Cook, stirring until caramelized, about 6 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring for 30 seconds. Push off to one side of the griddle.
  • Add the beef to the hot pan and cook about 2 minutes, or until almost cooked through. Mix in the sautéed ingredients and gather together in pan. Top with cheese slices and let the heat melt the cheeses. Spoon the cheesy meat mixture on top of warm buns and serve immediately open-faced, with ketchup and pickled peppers if desired.
