Gorgeous Philly Cheesesteak Recipe in 2021

The Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich is made with thinly sliced pieces of steak and melted cheese in a long hoagie roll. It has been said that the cheesesteak was invented in 1930 at Pat’s King of Steaks, which is located on Passyunk Avenue in South Philadelphia. The original version is attributed to Pat Olivieri , who later sold the sandwich to his friend, grocer Harry Olivieri .

The cheesesteak was originally thought of as a cheaper lunch option for local workers. Pat’s King of Steaks still serves up what many believe to be the original recipe. The Philly cheesesteak meat is cooked on a griddle and then placed into an Italian roll that has been hollowed out. Provolone, or Cheez Whiz (a processed cheese), is melted over the meat with sliced bell peppers and onions.

Today, many food trucks dish out their own variations on this classic sandwich. Some prefer their cheesesteak topped with bacon, mushrooms, steak fries, lettuce and tomato; others like to keep it simple with just cheese and onions. There are even variations of the traditional sandwich, such as the cheesesteak hoagie (with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise) or the Cheesesteak Bomb (a cheesesteak prepared in a submarine roll).

The city of Philadelphia is also home to two other famous sandwiches: The roast pork Italian sandwich (“Philadelphia roast pork sandwich”) and the hoagie, which both use Italian long bread.

The name cheesesteak is commonly used as a generic term for any kind of steak sandwich in Philadelphia; its usage has spread to other parts of the United States as well.

Philly cheesesteak Ingredients:

1 pound of beef, thinly sliced and chopped into small pieces

salt to taste

pepper to taste

1 tbsp of vegetable oil

1 large onion, chopped into small cubes

3 garlic cloves, minced

8 oz. white mushrooms, sliced into halves or quarters if they are really big slices

1/4 cup butter (for the mushroom) – you can use butter or olive oil for the mushroom.

6 egg roll wrappers (if you are anywhere near Philadelphia, you can purchase egg roll wrappers at the local Italian market – they are around 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick)

6 tbsps of mayonnaise, divided into 2 portions (so you have 3 tbsps for each portion)

1 cup of white cheddar cheese – you can use Swiss, Monterey Jack or any similar cheese (or cheeses) that melt well and taste good.

6 oz or 1 package of Cheez Whiz or Cheese Wiz

Salt to taste if needed

Pepper to taste if needed

Serves 4-8 people, depending upon how hungry they are.

How to make Philly cheesesteak:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a pot, heat oil and add beef, salt and pepper {to taste}. Stir until meat is no longer pink. Remove from the pot. If there is still some oil left in the pan, drain some of it out of the pot, but leave the oil in the pot. Add butter to the pan and melt.
  3. In a bowl, add 2 tbsps of mayonnaise, stir until it is well-mixed with the mayonnaise. Add onions to bowl and mix until they are coated in mayonnaise mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, add 4 tbsps of mayonnaise. Stir until it is well-mixed with the mayonnaise. Add mushrooms to bowl and mix until they are coated in mayonnaise mixture – set aside for now.
  5. In the same pan in which you cooked beef, add garlic cloves and cook them in oil for a minute or two until they are fragrant. Add onions and cook until they are translucent – not browned, just cooked through.

Add beef back into the pan with the onions. Stir together for about a minute or two, then turn heat down to low/simmering point if it is on high previously. If you have turned it to low/simmer point, add in the mushrooms. Stir together for about a minute to let flavors blend – I think you can cook it a little longer if you want, but not too much longer so that the mushrooms would start burning in the pan.

  1. Remove from heat and add in Cheez Whiz or Cheese Wiz (in a bowl, I added 2 tbsps of milk to the Cheez or Cheese Wiz and stirred vigorously until cheese was creamy). Add salt and pepper.
  2. In a pan, add eggs and scramble them – cook until done.
  3. Using an egg roll wrapper as a guide, cut into a square (or rectangle, square is easiest because you don’t have to mess up orienting the egg roll wrapper properly). Place 1 tbsp of Cheez Whiz or Cheese Wiz into one corner. Add some beef, mushroom and onion mixture on top of the cheese.

Add some egg (and some Hoisin sauce if you like).

  1. Fold corner of wrapper on top of mixture – continue folding until all ends are sealed in. Repeat for remaining wrappers.
  2. Put Philly cheesesteak egg rolls on a baking dish or sheet and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes, until outside is crispy.
  3. Serve with extra Cheez Whiz on the side (if you lik).
  4. Enjoy!

Notes: 1. Make sure to drain excess oil from the pan after cooking beef – I used paper towels for this purpose. Also, make sure not to overcook meat or vegetables, because that might make them too

Philadelphia is famous for many things, but its most famous foods are arguably the cheesesteak and soft pretzels. The city was founded by William Penn, who brought pretzels with him from the old country. The locals loved them and soon started baking pretzels like hot crossed buns, thus starting a Philadelphia tradition that would last for centuries.

Today, you can grab a soft pretzel almost anywhere in Philly; but there are some pretzel shops which make it right, while others fall flat. Mike’s Deli is located in the heart of Philadelphia’s Italian Market and has been making pretzels since 1932. Their menu includes traditional soft pretzels like salted, cinnamon sugar and jalapeno cheese, as well as softer pretzel bites in flavors such as nutella and chocolate banana.

Mike’s also serves up great Philly cheesesteaks, but for a real taste experience you need to try their pretzel cheesesteak. They start with a warm Philly pretzel, top it with premium rib-eye steak and Cheez Whiz, then sprinkle on some jalapenos for good measure. It’s the perfect way to get your fill of two Philadelphia classics in one sitting.

Mike’s Deli is located in Philadelphia’s historic Italian Market at 930 S. 9th Street.

So, who makes the best cheesesteak? It’s up to you to decide… but here are some tips for making your decision easier.

Philadelphia’s best cheesesteaks and soft pretzels are waiting for you – so what are you waiting for?
