I’m so excited about today’s Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich recipe! I LOVE Philly Cheesesteaks so much; it’s one of my favorite sandwiches. The combination of thin sliced, juicy ribeye steak, lightly caramelized sweet peppers and onions, melty-gooey cheese, all wrapped up in a soft and warm hoagie roll is seriously hard to beat! It’s also a sandwich that’s way easier to make than you would think!
I’m even more excited to present our Philly cheesesteak sandwich recipe to you all today because we’re using New Zealand Grass-Fed Wagyu Ribeye and it’s one of the best ribeye steaks I’ve ever tasted. You can truly taste the amount of care put into their delicious, sustainable, humanely, pasture raised Wagyu. The flavor is so clean and fresh, and the meat has a nice and tender texture. The quality is incredible!
Let’s talk about grass-fed beef for a quick second. When I’m at the market, I always look for grass-fed beef. Why? It’s loaded with healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It’s lower in fat overall compared to grain-fed, and it has a healthier omega 3: omega 6 ratio, and loaded with complete proteins. When I find New Zealand grass-fed beef, I always feel good and assured knowing I’m feeding my family beef that is incredibly delicious, nutritionally superior and humanely raised. I mean, who doesn’t love that?? Check out the Beef + Lamb New Zealand website to find it at a store near you!
Our cheesesteak recipe is so simple! The toughest part of our recipe is getting the beef sliced as thin as possible and we have a simple hack for that! Just stick your steak in the freezer for about 20 minutes, until the steak is partially frozen. When the steak is partially frozen, it’s so much easier to get thin slices (using a sharp knife, of course!). Once the beef is sliced up, we only season it with salt and pepper to allow the natural flavors of the grass-fed Wagyu beef to shine.
We opted for sliced provolone in our recipe because we love how well it melts into the nooks and crannies of the thin sliced beef and sliced onions and peppers. The mild flavor of provolone also pairs so well with the other ingredients. If you’re more of a cheese whiz person though, by all means go for it! Either way you’ll end up with a mouthwatering sandwich you’ll want to eat every week!
We use a traditional hoagie roll that’s just slightly warmed (not toasted), but if you can’t find them, you can use soft French bread as well. If you want your sandwich to have a bit of a kick we recommend cooking some thin strips of jalapenos with your pepper and onion mixture.
Everyone should run to their local market right now to buy the handful of basic ingredients for this ridiculously simple and delicious Philly cheesesteak sandwich! We promise you won’t be disappointed!
