Buttery, garlicky, and toasted garlic bread filled with delicious, fresh chipped steak and melted, cheesy provolone cheese creating the most perfect food invention to ever exist, Garlic Bread Cheesesteak. Yes, you have officially found the most perfect Friday night meal to make at home. Skip the take out, this is way better and a little friendlier to your wallet!
Nate and I are both from Philadelphia, so we were basically both raised on cheesesteaks. We have been to all the best, Jim's, Dalessandro's, Steve's and I can tell you, nothing matches up to an authentic Philadelphia cheesesteak. We live in the Philly suburbs now so sometimes, a trip to Philly to get a good cheesesteak can be a pain, so we settle for the next best thing, making them nice and fresh at home.
We decided to ramp up our cheesesteaks to a new level though, because why not? We love to just have fun with our cooking and thought it would be a genius idea to make garlic bread and then put the cheesesteak meat on top...we were right!
Today is Nate's 26 birthday and I told him I would post this recipe today just for him. It is one of his absolute favorites! We paired it with his Old Bay Chips! (stay tuned for those). So, Happy Birthday Nater!
- chipped steak
- provolone cheese
- very fresh Italian Hoagie roll
- fresh garlic
- parsley flakes
I always start by making the garlic bread first. To do this, I melt the butter in the microwave or on the stove. Crush the garlic into the butter. Spread the butter and garlic mixture on the insides of all of the pieces of bread. Toast in the oven.
On the stove, add the chipped steak to a non stick pan. You do not need to add cooking spray or anything as long as it is not stick. The steak will create enough grease to help it cook. I like to chop up my steak as if cooks but you can keep it in whole pieces too if you prefer!
Once the steak is cooked, add the cheese on top and cover the pan with a lid until the cheese is melted. Remove the garlic bread from the oven. Once the cheese is melted, transfer the steak with melted cheese to the garlic bread. Top with whatever toppings you prefer and enjoy!
What if we just want a regular cheese steak?
If that is the case you can follow the same steps, but just skip the garlic bread step! If I am not making garlic bread I usually do not toast my bread.
What are some of your favorite toppings?
I love caramelized onions and peppers on mine with some ketchup. Nate on the other hand loves mayo and banana peppers. That is the fun thing with cheesesteaks is that it is like an open canvas and you can kind of do whatever you want!
What are some other sandwiches with melted cheese I can try?
My French Onion Provolone Grilled Cheese is an excellent recipe if you are looking for a cheesy sandwich!
