Discover the secret to making a delicious homemade Philly cheesesteak with this comprehensive guide. From ingredients to serving, we’ve got you covered.

The Philly cheesesteak is a classic sandwich that originated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Made with thinly sliced steak, cheese, and a variety of toppings, this sandwich is a beloved staple of American cuisine. Whether you’re a local or a tourist, a trip to Philly isn’t complete without trying a cheesesteak. In this post, we’ll be sharing an authentic recipe for making the perfect Philly cheesesteak.


  • 1 lb thinly sliced ribeye steak
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 hoagie rolls
  • 4 slices of provolone cheese


  1. Start by slicing the steak as thin as possible. This will make it easier to cook and also ensure that it’s tender.
  2. Next, prepare the vegetables by slicing the onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced steak and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook the steak for about 2-3 minutes or until it’s browned and cooked through.
  5. Remove the steak from the skillet and set it aside.
  6. In the same skillet, add the sliced onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are soft and caramelized.
  7. Add the cooked steak back into the skillet and stir everything together.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut the hoagie rolls in half and place them on a baking sheet.
  3. Place a slice of provolone cheese on top of each roll.
  4. Spoon the steak and vegetable mixture onto the rolls, making sure to distribute it evenly.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the rolls are toasted.


  1. Once the sandwiches are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
  2. Some popular toppings for Philly cheesesteaks include lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and ketchup. Feel free to add any of these toppings to your sandwich for extra flavor.
  3. Another popular variation of the Philly cheesesteak is the “Cheez Whiz” version, which uses Cheez Whiz as the cheese instead of provolone.
  4. The classic way to serve a Philly cheesesteak is wrapped in foil, but you can also serve it on a plate or in a bowl.
  5. Philly cheesesteaks are best enjoyed hot and fresh out of the oven. If you have leftovers, you can reheat them in the oven or on a skillet for the best results.

Overall, making a Philly cheesesteak may seem daunting at first, but with the right ingredients and proper technique, you’ll be able to create an authentic and delicious sandwich that will satisfy your taste buds and take you on a journey to the city of brotherly love.
