Philly Steak & Cheese Sub

Updated: Jan 23, 2023

A Philly Steak & cheese sub my way until I get to Philly. Tender shaved ribeye steak, ooey gooey provolone, mozzarella cheese, sauteed onions, mushrooms, and banana peppers all snuggle up inside a toasted hoagie roll. Can I get an amen?

My first Philly cheese steak is what we use to call them, back in the day was at Vegas restaurant in my neighborhood. We would go there after we came from a house party about 9 or 10 o'clock at night. That cheese steak had a red sauce but it was so good, so big, and simply delicious. I wish I knew his recipe but I don't so here goes mine.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does steak and cheese last in the fridge?

Always use an airtight container to store your food. when stored properly, cooked beef will keep fresh up to 5 days.

What is the best meat for Philly Cheesesteak?

Ribeye is the steak for Philly cheesesteak. It is a tender cut of meat. You can use flank steak this cut of meat can also be tender if cut against the grain. Make sure to use a little extra oil when cooking with flank steak.

What is the best cheese to use on Philly Cheesesteak?

I use provolone cheese, but I think the call is to the tastebuds. American and mild or sharp provolone are the common substitutions but some people prefer Cheez Whiz.

Ribeye Steak- shaved ribeye steak can be found at your local grocery store, if not and you have a butcher shop you can request the ribeye to be shaved

Onions- always provide a hint of sweet and savory flavor

Mushrooms- this is can be optional but I love mushrooms

Hot Banana peppers- for a hint of tangy zest to the steak cook them in the steak (optional)

Soy sauce- adds richness to the steak and a level of saltiness

Seasoning- garlic, onion, black pepper, and salt enhances and wakes up the flavor in the steak

Onions and mushrooms- clean the mushroom with a damp paper towel and slice the onions and mushrooms. Sautee them in a pan with a little oil until they are tender.

Ribeye steak and banana peppers- add in the steak and banana peppers. Season the meat with soy sauce and the remaining seasonings of black pepper, salt, garlic powder, and onion powder. when the steak is done add cheese and allow it to melt
