Howdy –

My family went ga-ga over this Philly Cheese Steak Bread and I can’t say I blame them… I bet yours will too. It’s meaty, gooey, and wonderfully messy… just the kind of appetizer everyone loves to dig in to.  We make this year round and I often serve this to my family as a Main Dish, too.  It just works! My guys are MEAT-EATERS and this really satisfies them.

Easy Philly Philly Cheese Steak Bread Recipe Tips:

1. What kind of steak is best for making Philly Cheese Steak Bread?  I’m glad you asked!  If I could afford it, I’d use RIB-EYE Steaks for everything.  But, alas, my budget doesn’t allow for that (not ALL the time, that’s for sure) so when I make this Philly Philly Cheese Steak Bread, I love to use SKIRT steak if I can find it. What’s the next best thing? SIRLOIN steak.

2. Don’t season your steak until RIGHT BEFORE you’re ready to cook it.  Salt draws out moisture so seasoning with salt and pepper is definitely something you don’t want to do in advance since nobody wants to eat steak that dry and chewy!

3. Use your pizza cutter to make short work of slicing this cheese steak bread when it comes out of the oven – this is MUCH easier than slicing it with a knife.

Steak for Philly Cheese Steak Bread

Remove steak from fridge 20 minutes before you are ready to cook it; lightly season with salt and pepper on each side and let rest. Slice steak into thin slices; season sliced beef lightly with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat oil over medium high heat in a large cast iron skillet. Add the seasoned steak slices to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes; flip steak strips and cook 1 additional minute. Stir in 1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce, then remove steak from skillet and reserve.
