Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by Alan Leonetti

You must use provolone cheese and not cheddar, and also the proper steaks shaved thin, if you want to be authentic. This is in no way a Philly Cheese Steak.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 4 shell steaks (1/2 inch thick)
  • 4 onions, sliced
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 18 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 sandwich buns, split horizontally in half (hero style)
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded


  1. Heat broiler.
  2. Heat oil in large, heavy nonstick skillet over high heat. Add meat; saute 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove from pan to cutting board.
  3. Slice meat across grain at an angle. Transfer to plate; cover and keep warm.
  4. Add onion, salt and pepper to skillet. Reduce heat to medium; saute until onion is softened, about 10 minutes.
  5. Place meat on bottom of buns, dividing equally. Divide onion over meat. Top with cheese.
  6. Place on baking sheet. Broil sandwich bottoms until the cheese melts, about 1 minute. (The sandwich tops, cut side up, may be toasted under the broiler at this time.) Place the tops on sandwiches.
  7. Serve immediately.
