Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

On day three of Super Bowl Snack week I am breaking the rules by not sharing a “snack”, but to me Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches are a great super bowl food.  In my version of of this classic, I pile sauteed steak and onions on a toasted hoagie roll and top it all with a savory cheese sauce. I wont lie, it is very messy, but it is totally worth it.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches Recipe

Serves 2 Prep Time: Cook Time:


  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound thinly sliced round steak (I found this in the meat section of my local grocery store)
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire
  • 2 hoagie rolls
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • kosher salt and pepper to taste



Preheat your oven broiler.


In a skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon butter and olive oil. When butter melts add onion. Cook until onions start to turn brown and caramelize, about 10-15 minutes. Remove and set aside.


In the same skillet add round steak, granulated garlic, worcestershire, salt and pepper. Cook until meat is cooked through, about 3 minutes.


While you're cooking the meat, in a sauce pan over medium heat, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter. When butter has melted, whisk in flour. Cook 1 minute. Slowly stir in milk.


Stir in cream cheese and shredded cheddar and cook until melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper


Toast the hoagie rolls under the broiler until they turn golden, about 1 minute.


Layer the meat, onions and cheese sauce on the hoagie roll. Serve

    Oh, I would add Peepers, either red or green, or both, sliced thin and some garlic added for a better taste experience.

    Amazing, I used a pan instead and I honestly never had cheesesteak but I’ll be using this recipe a lot more often from now on! Thanks a lot!
