Philly Cheesesteaks Recipe for your Griddle

Philly cheesesteaks are a classic sandwich known for their flavorful combination of thinly sliced steak, sautéed onions, and melted cheese. Making them on your griddle is a fantastic choice as it allows you to achieve that perfect sear and even heat distribution. Here's a recipe for Philly cheesesteaks on your griddle:


For the Steak:

  • 1 pound of ribeye or top round steak, thinly sliced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for griddling

For the Onions and Peppers:

  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bell pepper (green or red), thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

For the Sandwich Assembly:

  • 4 sub rolls or hoagie rolls
  • 8-12 slices of American cheese or Provolone cheese
  • Ketchup, mayonnaise, or hot sauce (optional)


Griddling the Steak:

  1. Preheat the Griddle:

    • Preheat your griddle to medium-high heat, around 350-375°F (175-190°C).
  2. Season the Steak:

    • Season the thinly sliced steak with salt and black pepper.
  3. Griddle the Steak:

    • Brush the griddle with a bit of vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Place the seasoned steak on the hot griddle and cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until it's cooked to your preferred level of doneness. Use a spatula to move and separate the meat as it cooks.

Preparing the Onions and Peppers:

  1. Sauté the Onions and Peppers:
    • In a separate area of the griddle, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add the thinly sliced onions and peppers. Sauté them for 5-7 minutes or until they become tender and slightly caramelized. Season with salt and black pepper.

Assembling the Philly Cheesesteaks:

  1. Prepare the Rolls:

    • Split the sub or hoagie rolls and lay them on the griddle to lightly toast.
  2. Melt the Cheese:

    • Once the steak is cooked to your liking, place slices of American cheese or Provolone cheese on top of the meat. Allow the cheese to melt as you mix it with the steak.
  3. Combine with Onions and Peppers:

    • Add the sautéed onions and peppers to the griddled steak and cheese mixture. Mix everything together to create a flavorful combination.
  4. Sandwich Assembly:

    • Using a spatula, transfer the cheesy steak and onions onto the toasted rolls. You can add ketchup, mayonnaise, or hot sauce if desired.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:

    • Serve your Philly cheesesteaks hot and enjoy the delicious combination of flavors and textures.

Philly cheesesteaks are best enjoyed fresh off the griddle. Customize them to your liking, whether you prefer traditional toppings like cheese whiz or your favorite condiments.
