Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2 sandwiches


The Sauce

  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole milk heated
  • 2 tbsp. grated parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp. salt kosher preferred
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper freshly ground

The Rest

  • 1/2 med. green pepper sliced
  • 1/2 med. yellow onion sliced
  • 1 8 oz. strip steak cooked and diced
  • 2 slices provolone cheese
  • 2 sub/hoagie rolls sliced


  1. Saute pepper and onions in a 10 inch pan for 4 minutes, add the chopped steak and cook another 3 minutes.  Set aside.

  2. Melt the butter in the pan over med. heat.  Whisk in the flour, cook for 1 min. then slowly whisk in the warm milk.  Continue whisking for 4 to 5 min. until it thickens.  Finally whisk in the grated parmesan for another 1 min.

  3. Now stir in the steak, peppers and onions.  Heat for the mixture for 3 minutes.

  4. Spoon the mixture into 2 sub rolls, cover with sliced provolone cheese and place under broiler to finish.  You just want to broil long enough so that the cheese starts to bubble.

Recipe Notes

Did you know:  The Philly Cheese Steak dates back to the 1930's, generally credited to hot dog vending brothers Pat and Harry Olivieri.  Lots of variations since, but the idea is still the same.
