Philly cheesesteak

At the Phil’s Steaks food truck in New York, I once ate the best steak sandwich of my life: the Philly cheesesteak. The founders of this truck missed their Philadelphia meat sandwich and decided to recreate it in The Big Apple. As simple as it is effective, this is the perfect lunch for hungry foodies. Tip: Have the meat cut as finely as possible by your butcher!

The Philly cheesesteak is certainly not a sandwich for the faint of heart because it is a complete meal. Especially if you spread a lot of cheese sauce on it. You can fry the ribeye in a frying pan, but you can also use a grill pan.

Philly cheesesteak recipe


PREPARATION TIME:    20 min     CALORIES:      970 kcal



  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbsp butter at room temperature
  • salt and freshly ground
  • 150 gr grated old cheddar
  • 100 ml whipped cream
  • 200 g thinly sliced ​​ribeye
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 rolls or ciabatta rolls


  1. Finely chop the onion. Heat a frying pan and melt 1 tablespoon of butter in it. Fry the onion with salt and freshly ground black pepper over low heat. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the onion is soft.
  2. Heat the cheddar over low heat in a pan until the cheese is runny. Add the whipped cream little by little until you get a nice cheese sauce; the sauce should be thick and stringy.
  3. Briefly fry the ribeye in a pan, with 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil.
  4. Coat the rolls with the melted cheddar, spoon the soft onion on top and finish with the fried ribeye. Enjoy your Philly cheesesteak!
