  • 1 Large Skillet


  • 1 sliced Ribeye steak
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • ½ medium onion, finely diced
  • 6 slices mild provolone cheese
  • 6 large hoagie rolls
  • 4 tablespoons butter, for searing and buttering bread


  • Slice and season the ribeye with salt, pepper, & garlic powder. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Add 2 tablespoons to a preheated skillet. Add the steak and sear it for 2-3 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.
  • Move the steak to the outside of the pan and add your onion. Let them sauté until caramelized. Turn the heat off.
  • Turn on your broiler in your oven. Slice the hoagies as you would a hot dog bun and butter the inside with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • Put them on a cookie sheet and allow them to toast for a few minutes under the boiler. Keep a good eye on them so they don't burn.
  • Once toasted, add meat and a layer of cheese on top.
  • Broil again until the cheese is bubbly and golden.


How to store leftover Philly Cheesesteak

Philly cheesesteaks are good stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an airtight container.

How to reheat leftover Cheesesteak Sandwiches

  • Stovetop- In a pan, heat the sandwich filling of steak and onions with a little bit of water covered until hot. Melt cheese over top before dishing your cheesesteak filling into your hoagie bun or bread.
  • Oven- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, wrap your leftover cheesesteaks in aluminum foil, and bake on a tray in the oven for 20-25 minutes. This is the preferred method for retaining a crispy and juicy cheesesteak sandwich.
