Church Mothers’ Philly Cheesesteak Recipe

It’s gooey, melts in your mouth, and just absolutely juicy and tender. The classic Philly Cheesesteak is an all-time street-food favorite with origins in the East Coast, specifically in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and thus its name.

It’s feel-good, comfort food that’s filling and satisfying, and it makes for the perfect lunch or the ultimate way to enjoy a hearty sandwich dinner. While it’s a popular street food staple, why not make one on your own at home? The ingredients are simple, the classic recipe easy to make, quick to prepare at only 30 minutes, and you can even add your very own choice of toppings.

If you’ve never made one on your own before, then you’re in luck. This recipe is super easy to follow, using ingredients you can easily find in a regular supermarket. Before we get started, let’s get down to the basics.

The Key to a Great Philly Cheesesteak is the Choice of Cheese and Beef

Because you only need a small number of ingredients to make this sandwich, you really have to pick the best choice for the cheese and beef. After all, they’re the only main ingredients to this hearty food.

There is a lot of debate as to which kind of cheese is the most ideal but the original classic Philly Cheesesteak always makes use of Provolone Cheese. Why? Because it doesn’t overshadow the beef in taste, but actually compliments it. If you don’t have Provolone, you can use any other cheese as long as the taste is not intense or sharp. The star of this sandwich is still the beef, so make sure it’s not the kind of cheese that overpowers the main ingredient.

When it comes to choosing the beef, the best is thinly sliced ribeye. This is definitely the go-to meat for this sandwich due to its high-fat content that provides the sandwich with its melt-in-your-mouth, tender, and easy-to-bite characteristics.

When it comes to the sauce, you can either use mayo or mild horseradish. And in terms of toppings, the choice is yours. The classic cheesesteak is only made of beef, cheese, onion, and the hoagie roll. But if you want to add mushrooms and veggies, you may do so as well.

So now it’s time to get cooking.

Here Are the Ingredients You Will Need:

  • 2 lb. of ribeye beef, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. provolone cheese sliced
  • 1 large yellow onion, cut in half rings
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. ground pepper
  • Hoagie rolls


  • 2 green bell peppers cut into long strips
  • 1 lb. mushroom, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into long strips

Note: To guarantee the best flavor, the ribeye steak should be marinated prior to cooking. Try this simple marinade mixture to kick up the flavor a few notches!

Steak Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Whisk the Dijon mustard and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl. Add the garlic and slowly pour in olive oil while stirring. Add salt and pepper to taste. Combine the marinade and steak in a sealable plastic bag and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour.

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Heat your pan and pour the oil. Once it’s hot, add the onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cook until the veggies are golden brown. Remove and set aside without turning off your stove or cooktop.
  2. Add sliced beef to the same pan, and season with salt and pepper. Do not overcook the beef because it will turn hard and dry. When you see the beef cooked just right, add the veggies back to the pan, toss, and combine them together.
  3. Place the provolone cheese on top of the beef mixture, and let it sit until they melt.
  4. Once they’ve melted. Remove from the pan.
  5. Brush the hoagie roll with butter or garlic spread, and toast. Once it’s toasted, fill the sandwich with the meat mixture, and serve.
