Philly Cheesesteak

Super Bowl is here and whether you root for Philly or not these are the best snack for watching the big game or any other sports event.


For Sauce

  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp of cornstarch
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tsp of dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup of evaporated milk
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

For Sandwich:

  • 2 onions sliced in juliennes
  • 2 pounds of ribeye steak or prime rib
  • 6 Italian buns
  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  • For the sauce add the milk in a medium-sized pot at low heat and let it warm then start adding the rest of the ingredients.
  • Keep stirring often until all ingredients are integrated and you obtain a thick sauce. Keep warm and reserve.
  • Cook the meat one day before or give yourself a few hours before preparing the sandwiches. Personally, I recommend cooking the meat with the reverse searing method (set your oven or barbecue to 275 degrees F, cook it for 1 hour or until meat reaches 130 degrees F, then sear it at high temperature: 500 degrees F in the oven broiler or directly on the flame of the barbecue for 3-4 minutes per side).
  • Meat should reach a temperature of 140 degrees F, let it rest/cool off, and slice it very thin.
  • Add oil to a large frying pan at medium-high heat and add the onions. Cook them until they get slightly charred then add the butter. As soon as it melts add the rib meat and mix all together until combined. Rectify seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Slice the buns in half and toast the inside on the pan with a little butter.
  • Fill the buns with the steak mix and top it with the cheese sauce. Serve hot.

Tip: for an extra punch of flavor you can fry in a pan some bell peppers or mushrooms until they are soft and slightly charred.
