Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches are filled with seasoned sirloin steak, bell peppers, onions and lots of gooey cheese.

   These Philly’s are HANDS DOWN my favorite sandwich in the entire universe. I was so excited when I found frozen Philly Steak in my grocery stores freezer section. I looked on the back of the package and it said it was ‘seasoned sirloin steak’. I thought for a moment, ‘Hmmm frozen steak? Should I try it?’  and then threw it in my cart and the rest is history. On Wednesday night, I decided to try it out. I sliced up some bell pepper and onions, threw in some seasonings and cooked the steak on a skillet. Just smelling the wonderful aroma got me all excited! Long story short, it turned out to be the best Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich I’ve ever had in my life!!!


   Now if your from Philly your probably rolling your eyes thinkin, ‘This girl has no clue.’ And I actually agree with you. I am truly looking forward to the day when I can go to Philadelphia and have a real Philly Cheesesteak sandwich,  but until that day comes, this is the way I will only make them. This sandwich was amazing, and if no one was looking, I would have eaten every single one I made.




Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches


  • 1 lb Sirloin Steak, sliced thin OR 1 lb frozen Philly Steak meat
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Green or Red Bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 small Yellow Onion, sliced into rings
  • Season Salt, to taste
  • Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • 4 Tablespoons Cream Cheese, softened
  • 4 slices White American or Provolone Cheese
  • 4 Hoagie Rolls



Directions:  In a small skillet over medium heat, melt 1 Tablespoon of butter. Add the onion and bell pepper. Saute until softened. About 5-10 minutes.


Meanwhile, preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the steak meat on and cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Once each side is browned, start to chop it up with your spatula. You want small bite size pieces. Sprinkle with season salt and pepper to taste.


Once meat is thoroughly cooked, add in the onions and bell peppers. Stir.


Place each hoagie bun half on a cookie sheet. Top bottom halves of hoagie buns with a quarter of meat mixture. Top each with one slice of cheese. Place under the broiler until cheese has melted, and the buns are slightly toasted. *Stand by your oven the whole time to watch the cheese melt. It melts fast!*


Remove sandwiches from oven and spread 1 Tablespoon of cream cheese on top half of bun. Close sandwiches and serve immediately!
