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.
Add butter, bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms to pan drippings in the skillet; season lightly with salt and pepper to taste, cooking vegetables for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

- Layer bread with the cheese slices place over the mayo, then top with the prepared steak, vegetables and mozzarella cheese.
- Bake, uncovered, on the center rack of the oven for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is nicely melted, golden brown and a bit bubbly.
