It’s no secret that sheet pans dinners are an easy weeknight meal, and these Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak are proof of that. Simple, creamy, cheesy, and incredibly delicious. You’re going to love these!
Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak. . . do I really need to say anything more?
This recipe kind of sells itself, right?
I mean who doesn’t love a good Philly cheesesteak? Then to make it even better, it’s made on a sheet pan and done in under 30 minutes. Sheet pan dinners really do make dinnertime so easy – they’re truly a lifesaver when it comes to cooking dinner with minimal time and effort.
Dinner’s might not get much easier or delicious than this.
While the majority of this recipe is actually made in a skillet on your stovetop, it is finished off on a sheet pan and put in the oven. So maybe it’s not technically a “true sheet pan” meal, but it’s delicious regardless.
Line up of ingredients. . .
Ground Beef. Traditional Philly cheesesteaks are made with with shaved steak, but if you’re like me you don’t always have that on hand. Ground beef is delicious in these and much more convenient.
Bell peppers. You can use a combination of any . . . green, red, yellow, orange. I recommend using at least two different kind.
Onions. Use whatever you have on hand. I usually yellow onions, but I’ve used white and sweet yellow as well.
Mushrooms. Definitely optional, and probably controversial to the true cheesesteak devotees of the world. Some think they’re a tasty addition, others don’t. So you can take them or leave them. I choose to leave them.
Cheese. Everyone has their own opinion on which cheese is best, from American to provolone and even Cheez Whiz. I love to use provolone or Swiss (yes, Swiss), but use whatever you love most. American does provide a creamy, melty texture, while provolone lends a bit of a nutty, salty flavor.
How to make Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak.
- Start by browning your ground beef in a skillet. Cook until the meat is no longer pink and then drain any grease.
- Add in your softened cream cheese, steak seasoning and Worcestershire sauce and milk. Stir until it’s well combined.
- Once the veggies are done, spread them over the meat mixture and top with the cheese of your choice.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes. Pile the meat onto a buttered, toasted bun and enjoy!
Yummiest, easiest sandwich!
What kind of rolls should I use?
You can make these sandwiches using hoagie rolls, sandwich rolls, slider rolls, etc. Any kind of roll really will work. Just remember, no matter what size rolls you use, butter and lightly toast them in a skillet. Makes these even better! You can also spread a little mayo on the rolls, which is what recipe suggests.
Such a quick and simple dinner! These also would be great New Year’s eve, Super Bowl parties, or any occasion really!Print
