This is our take on the Philly cheesesteak, and it’s delicious and utterly satisfying. We think you’re going to love it!

What is the history of Philly Cheesesteak

Philly cheesesteak is a type of sandwich that is popular in Philadelphia. It is fairly often credited to two brothers who are said to have come up with the sandwich in South Philly in the 1930s. The two brothers were Pat and Harry Olivieri and their sandwich soon gained popularity across the US.

Usually this sandwich is made of sliced rib eye or top round, and the cheese of choice in Philadelphia is actually Cheez Whiz. 

Why we love Ground Beef Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich

We love this variation on the traditional Philly cheesesteak because it’s a simple and easy at-home recipe that anyone can make! We’ve replaced beefsteak with ground beef and instead of cooking this on a griddle, we cook the meat and veggies in a pan and then bake the sandwich. 

This recipe is a perfect at-home variation of a classic, and we think you’re going to love it if you can’t get to Philly for the traditional kind!

Here are the components of Ground Beef Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich 

Like we mentioned above, we used ground beef for this sandwich. It’s an accessible, tasty alternative to beefsteak, and we think it adds a little pizazz to the sandwich! For vegetables we’re using green pepper and onion, two total cheesesteak classics. 

We slather the bread in mayo and replaced the Cheez Whiz with provolone, which is going to taste so delicious when it melts into the beef.
