Philly cheesesteak sandwiches with thin juicy sirloin strips, sauteed mushrooms, onions, and green peppers on a sliced hoagie bun with mayonnaise and melted cheese. The sandwich is then baked in the oven to get a crunchy crust and melted cheese. This recipe makes 8-10 servings.
Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are a family favorite, so of course, I have more than one recipe to make them. If you’re interested in making them out of tender rib-eye steak, check out Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich.
In this recipe I used Gary’s Quick Steak Pre-Sliced Sirloin Beef for Philly Steak from Hy-Vee grocery stores. It’s sold all over the US and their website lists grocery locations you can purchase it from. It’s also available online if you buy want to stock up.
Ingredients for Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches
- Gary’s Quick Steak Pre-Sliced Sirloin Beef for Philly Steak or Thinly Sliced Sirloin
- Hoagie Buns
- Green Peppers
- Medium Onion
- Shredded Mozzarella
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Garlic Powder
- Black Pepper
- Aluminum Foil
How to make the sandwiches:
Rinse and slice green peppers, onion, into thin strips and slice the mushrooms thin.
Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or canola oil to a large pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
Once hot, add sliced vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Cook for approximately 5-6 minutes until vegetables are tender and set aside.
It’s best to leave them tender-crisp because they will be put in the oven to bake as well.
In the same pan, add another tablespoon of vegetable oil. Once hot, add Gary’s Quick Steak Pre-Sliced Sirloin Beef or your choice of beef.
Add Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and stir. Cook until meat is browned.
Add the vegetables back to the pan and stir together with the sirloin.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice each hoagie bun and spread a thin layer of mayonnaise to the inside of each bun.
Fill each bun with cooked sirloin and vegetables. Add mozzarella on top of the sirloin and vegetables.
Melt butter in a small bowl and use a basting brush to top each bun with butter.
Wrap each sandwich individually with aluminum foil. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-17 minutes until cheese is melted.
What goes on Philly cheesesteak?
Ribeye is the traditional choice of meat for a cheesesteak made in Philadelphia. Many different versions use sliced sirloin or ground beef, while others replace the beef with chicken.
The cheese is typically slices of provolone, but there are many who use Chees Whiz, American, mozzarella, or even a blend of some of the cheeses together.
Philly cheesesteaks can come with a variety of sauteed or grilled vegetables. Green peppers and onions are the most often seen, and others add red peppers, mushrooms, raw lettuce and tomato, and mayonnaise is added to the bun.
