Philly Cheese Steak Sandwhich

I give this recipe 5 Stars.  The cheese sauce is a bit complicated and very demanding, but worth it!

Makes 4 Sandwiches, (The Lineman ate 2)
I used this recipe with left over tri tip, perfect for this.



  • 4 Cups left over tri tip, thinly sliced  (If you don't have left over meet pan fry Steak, Tri Tip, what ever you have, just don't over cook)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • Soft hoagie rolls, split 3/4 open
  • Provolone Sauce, recipe follows
  • 1 Cup Sliced Mushrooms
  • 1/2 Cup thinly sliced Onions
  • 2 Sweet Peppers, I used 1 Red, 1 Orange, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
Cheese Sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cups Milk (do not recommend fat free), heated
  • 1 cup grated aged provolone cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


     Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in large skillet.  Place Peppers, Onions, Mushrooms, and Italian Seasoning in pan and saute.

    On low heat put 1 tbsp olive oil and let warm up in a medium pan.  Place meat in once oil is hot.  Over low heat let warm up.

    Cheese Sauce:
    I would not start this until the peppers and meat are done.  Cover them to keep warm.  The cheese sauce will take all of your attention.

    Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the warm milk, and cook, whisking constantly until thickened, about 6 to 8 minutes. It took me one minute to slowly add the milk in.  I would let it thicken and then add more.  If at 8 minutes it is still not super thick, it is ok.  The cheese will help. Turn heat to low and whisk in the provolone and Parmesan until combined; season with the salt and pepper.

    Place several slices of the meat on the bottom half of the roll, spoon some of the cheese sauce over the meat, and top with the mushrooms, onions, and peppers.

    This will be your new favorite sub!!
