Authentic Philly Cheesesteak Recipe

Love the savory flavors of a traditional Philly Cheesesteak? This recipe delivers the iconic taste of Philadelphia right to your kitchen! Composed of thinly sliced ribeye steak, melted cheese, and a crusty hoagie roll, this sandwich is a mouth-watering treat for any occasion.


  • 1 lb ribeye steak, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 hoagie rolls, split
  • 8 slices of Provolone cheese
  • Mushrooms, green peppers (optional)


  1. Before cooking, freeze the ribeye steak for about 30 minutes. This will make it easier to slice thinly.
  2. Preheat a griddle or large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
  3. Add the onions (and mushrooms and peppers if desired) to the skillet and cook until caramelized, stirring occasionally. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Increase the heat to high. Season the thinly sliced steak with salt and pepper and add it to the skillet. Cook the steak for about 3 minutes, or until browned, stirring and breaking the slices into smaller pieces as they cook.
  5. Return the onions (and other vegetables if used) to the skillet with the steak and mix together.
  6. Divide the steak and onion mixture into 4 portions on the skillet. Top each portion with two slices of Provolone cheese and let it melt.
  7. Open the hoagie rolls and place them facedown on top of the cheese for a moment to warm through.
  8. Use a spatula to scoop up each cheesy steak portion and fill each hoagie roll.
  9. Serve hot and enjoy your homemade Philly Cheesesteak!

The key to a perfect Philly Cheesesteak is using high-quality ingredients and getting the steak as thin as possible. Customize your sandwich with your choice of cheese, like Cheez Whiz or American, and additional toppings for a personalized touch.

Tips and Variations:

  • If you have difficulty finding ribeye, you can also use top round steak as a substitute.
  • For a cheese sauce alternative, melt Cheez Whiz in a saucepan and pour it over the cooked steak and onions before placing on the roll.
  • To achieve an authentic Philadelphia touch, ask for freshly baked Amoroso’s hoagie rolls at your local bakery or deli.
