Easy Philly Cheesesteaks

These Easy Philly Cheesesteaks are amazing. Period. They are meaty, cheesy HEAVEN!

Easy Philly Cheesesteaks


I like to make this recipe on weeknights when I don’t have a lot of time. Whip these up and serve them with some veggies and dip, french fries, or potato chips, and you’ve got yourself a meal the whole family will love. Some of my kids don’t like the veggies, so I just pile the extras up on my sandwich. 😉


A special thank you to my husband for thinking of adding cream cheese to these Easy Philly Cheesesteaks. It adds a whole new dimension that I can’t live without anymore. I always spread a nice, thick layer on my sandwich. I just can’t resist that creaminess! As far as the roast beef goes, I like to get mine from the deli and have it sliced super thin. I think the flavor of the juice soaks in better that way when you simmer it. I also like to cut the peppers and onions up really thin. You can find the hoagie rolls at pretty much any grocery store. You can also use our Homemade Subway Bread recipe if you like homemade bread better!


These Easy Philly Cheesesteaks also make great Easy French Dip Subs! Instead of making Au Jus, you can just save the juice that you simmer the beef in, and dip away! If you decided to do it this way, I like to cook the sandwiches just a little bit longer so they are just a tad crunchier and don’t fall apart in the juice as much. I tried this last time I was at my sister’s house and it was AH-mazing! I can’t resist a good French Dip Sub. If you love French Dips too, you can try our Super Easy French Dip Subs! Also, if you love Philly Cheesesteaks, try our Cheesesteak Crescent Rolls! They are like mini cheesesteaks and they are SO GOOD!

Save Recipe


  • 2 c. beef broth
  • 1 pkg onion soup mix
  • 1 lb. Black Angus rare roast beef (regular roast beef works great too, just make sure it's from the deli and thinly sliced)
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 large white or yellow onion, sliced
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • sliced provolone cheese (2 slices per sandwich)
  • 3-4 hoagie rolls


  • Bring beef broth and onion soup mix to a boil. Add roast beef, reduce heat, and simmer for about 5-10 minutes. In the meantime, in a large skillet saute onion and green pepper.
  • When beef is done simmering, drain juices (you can keep the juice if you want to make an "au jus" dip). Add roast beef to skillet along with about 4 oz. of cream cheese.
  • Spread remaining cream cheese on each hoagie roll. When the cream cheese in the skillet is all melted, generously portion beef mixture onto each hoagie roll.
  • Top with provolone cheese and place sandwiches, open-faced on a large baking sheet.
  • Broil on high for about a minute or until cheese becomes bubbly and bread becomes slightly toasty. Remove from oven and serve immediately.

    Just made this for dinner, and used a whole loaf of French bread instead of indivual hoggie rolls, the family loved it!

  16. Krista says:

    “These are DELICIOUS!!!!” to quote my 10 yo son! He asked what we were having and when I said “philly cheese steak” he replied with the typical ‘Oh, yeah…Do I have to have that?” So when I made his plate I only gave him a small piece and told him I wanted him to at least try it, which typically returns a “ok, I tried it, now can I have a PBJ?” He took one bite and asked for the rest of his sandwhich! Thanks for posting. Not only is the flavor delicious but was a very quick to prepare meal!

  17. teresa says:

    Delish! I made this with a few extras and mushrooms. ( GREAT!!!) I also simmered the meat for about 20 minutes to give it more flavor. While the onion,bell pepper were almost done I through in the mushrooms and a little broth to brown it with flavor. It was so good. Thanks so much

  18. Brooke says:

    This is spectacular!! Best Philly cheese steak sandwich! I also added mushrooms and used white american cheese instead of provalone. Much better taste that way 🙂 thanks for the recipie!

    • Emily says:

      So glad you liked it!

  20. Carole says:

    These are the best! I put some of the soup mixture into the meat after cooking (used Schwan’s Philly Beef Steak) and simmered until liquid dissolved, then added the cream cheese. We used the rest of the soup mixture for the “au jus”. I used provolone, husband used baby swiss. Seasoned peppers, onions & mushrooms with salt & pepper. Absolute heaven! Thank you so much for this recipe. I will use it forever!

    • Erica says:
