There are some dishes where it seems that the ingredients were just meant to be together, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. And Philly cheesesteak is one of those. When you tuck some thinly sliced steak, fragrant peppers and onions, and gooey, melty Provolone into a soft roll… magic happens. That juicy, classic combination is as much a Philadelphia icon as it is a sandwich. And while some say you can never truly have a Philly cheesesteak outside of Philly, we’ve got an easy way for you to enjoy that delicious star of a sandwich right out of your own kitchen.
Since we love a sheet pan dinner, we’ve found a way to cook up all those yummy cheesesteak ingredients on one pan in the oven. It’s easy, there are barely any dishes to clean, and it’s tasty as can be. After slicing up some veggies, you season them along with the steak and lay it all out on a baking sheet before popping it in the oven. Once the steak is cooked, you slice it up and return it to the pan with some slices of provolone (which is the classic choice for a cheesesteak if you ask us) before returning it back to the oven for a few minutes. When you stir the melted cheese with the sliced steak and veggies, it mixes with the juices from the meat and onions and creates an ooey, gooey flavorful cheese sauce that we can’t get enough of.
It’s juicy and SO flavorful and it’s a quick weeknight meal that the whole family loves. Whether you like your cheesesteaks “wit” or “widdout,” you’ll love this easy recipe. You get all the flavor of the iconic sandwich with very little effort. And that sounds good to us!
