Seasoning Philly Cheesesteak Meat

There are a few options of steaks that you can use when making a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich. The most popular steak cut to use in a Philly sandwich is a ribeye, but some like to use sirloin also. The ribeye steak cut is tender and has good flavor for making a Philly. If you wish to use a different cut, you can but make sure the steak is tender.

You will want to thinly slice about 1 lb. of steak. Place the steak in a bowl and toss with 1 1/2 Tbs of Chugwater Chili Steak Rub. Make sure that all pieces are coated in the steak rub seasoning.  Let it sit in the refrigerator for around 15 minutes to let the seasoning marinate into the steak pieces. This will add flavor to your sandwich.

While the steak is marinating you can cut up your vegetables. Take 1 green bell pepper (if you want to use a different pepper color you can), ½ large onion, and 2 cups of mushrooms. The mushrooms can be optional* Thinly slice the bell pepper and onion into strips. If you prefer diced onions or bell peppers in your Philly, then feel free to dice them.

Cooking a Philly Cheesesteak

Once you have seasoned your steak meat you can now start cooking it. You will want to heat 3 Tbs of olive oil, or an oil of your preference, in a medium skillet. Cook the meat until it is browned.

Once the meat has browned you can add in the peppers, onion, and into the skillet. Sprinkle with about 1/2 Tbs of Chugwater Chili Steak Rub. Cook until the onion starts to become translucent and peppers start to tenderize. You want the peppers to be tender but not mushy.

Serving a Philly Cheesesteak

Once all your Philly Cheesesteak filling has cooked you can move onto making your sandwich. When making a Philly sandwich you can use a variety of cheeses including Swiss, Provolone, American, and more. The more common cheeses are Swiss or Provolone. Melted queso is also an option. Use your imagination to customize the ultimate Philly sandwich for you.  

Start your sandwich by placing a hoagie bun on your plate. Then add cheese and put the steak filling on top. Bravo you now have a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich! Some like to add other condiments such as a seasoned mayo but that is entirely up to you and how you like to customize your sandwich.

You can serve the sandwich with:

  • Chips
  • Side salad
  • Beans
  • Seasoned Oven Fries
  • Fresh fruit
  • And much more
