Thin slices of delicious beef, onions, bell peppers, and melty cheese all come together in one sandwich. Served up with potato chips or French fries, this homemade Philly cheesesteak recipe is always a hit.
One of the most popular recipes on my blog is this Campfire Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich, which is basically today’s recipe, but wrapped in tinfoil and thrown into a campfire. I kid you not! It’s a family favorite and one of the camping recipes that we use all of the time.
Now, there are a ton of ways to make a Philly cheesesteak. A traditional Philly cheesesteak found in Philadelphia is most often served with Cheese Whiz on a hoagie bun, similar to the kind you would use for hot dogs.
I like to change it up a bit with different buns, because as long as the buns are soft, the family is happy. Provolone cheese is our personal preference over any other kind of cheese, because of the rich melty flavor that it adds to this cheesesteak.
KITCHEN ESSENTIALS FOR MAKING PHILLY CHEESESTEAK:
- I love using these non-stick T-fal Frying Pans for all of my sauteing.
- These silicone tongs are perfect for flipping and scooping the steak filling.
- This Henckel Knife is my favorite for slicing and dicing in the kitchen.
- These grilling bags make cleanup a breeze and these parchment paper bags are perfect for packaging.

HOW TO MAKE THIS PHILLY CHEESESTEAK SANDWICH RECIPE:
- Season thinly sliced meat with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper.
2. Add garlic and butter to a large skillet and sauté onions and peppers. Once the vegetables are soft, set them aside.

5. Split into 4 sections in the pan.

Tips and Tricks:
- Try different cheeses to find the kind you like best. Some popular choices are American cheese or mozzarella cheese slices.
- Additional toppings can be included on this classic sandwich. Hot peppers and extra caramelized onions are a couple of our favorite toppings to add.
- Make this as a sheet pan meal.
- While grocery stores are always a good option for buying meat, I prefer to purchase our meat from a local butcher.
- In order to get nice thin slices of beef, make sure you are using a sharp knife. It makes all the difference.
These Philly cheesesteak sandwiches travel exceptionally well too! Simply cut them in half on the diagonal, wrap in parchment paper, and take them on your next picnic or road trip. They would also be amazing served with a side of au jus, like a beef dip! #nomnom
