What is a Philly Cheesesteak?
If you’re from the States (and even if you’ve never visited Philadelphia), chances are you’ve at least heard of a Philly cheesesteak. But in case you missed it, a Philly cheesesteak is a famous sandwich made with tender-cooked ribeye topped with American cheese, and served on a roll. Variations include caramelized onions and peppers, and provolone cheese. This iconic sandwich is a staple of Philly eateries. If you’re not one for missing out, these easy homemade cheesesteak sliders are just what you need at your next get-together!
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Slider Rolls: Regular slider buns or Hawaiian rolls.
- Sweet Onion: I use Vidalia onion. Another sweet and mild onion, like white onion, will also work.
- Green Bell Peppers: I love the slight crispiness of sauteed green peppers in my sliders. If you’re not a pepper fan, feel free to leave it out.
- Garlic: Fresh cloves, minced.
- Onion Soup Mix: A shortcut to loads of flavor! All you need is a couple of packages of your favorite dry soup mix.
- Roast Beef: I’m all about food hacks when it comes to party food, so I make these cheesesteaks with deli roast beef, sliced into strips. See more suggestions for what beef to use below!
- Cheese: I use a combination of white American cheese and deli provolone slices. The melt factor is just next level!
- Worcestershire Sauce: For a hint of umami flavor. It really makes a difference!
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
What Kind of Steak Should I Use?
If you’re going the traditional route, a Philly cheesesteak is made with shaved or thinly sliced ribeye steak, or a similar option like NY strip or skirt steak. Some grocery stores will carry steak that’s pre-cut into thin slices, which is helpful. I take a bit of a shortcut and use roast beef from the deli section! The flavor is still amazing, and it’s easy to come by.
