We are loving cooking Blackstone Griddle Recipes. The griddle cooks up so fast and it is perfect for my large family. We have cooked shrimp, breakfast and even salmon.

This Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich has always been one of my favorite sandwiches to make. The thinly slice meat with the grilled onions and then topped with melted cheese, makes it so delicious and full of flavor.

What is a Philly Cheesesteak?

A Philly Cheesesteak is thinly slice rib eye beef sauteed with sliced onions and green peppers then stuffed into a toasted hoagie. It is then topped with melted cheese.

What is the Best Meat for a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich?

Ribeye steak is the best meat for Philly Cheesesteak. It needs to be thinly sliced and a lot of stores have pre-sliced steak in the freezer section. Which makes it easy to prepare this sandwich.

We used thinly sliced sirloin for these cheesesteak but you can easily use thinly sliced round steak or prime rib as well.

Best Cheese for a Philly Cheesesteak:

  • Provolone
  • American Cheese
  • Cheese Whiz

What type of Bread?

A hoagie bun is best for Philly Cheesesteak. We like is best heated on the griddle. Just butter the bread and place on the Blackstone Griddle.

Ingredients needed - steak, white onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper, provolone cheese, hoagie rolls, avocado oil, butter, mayonnaise

Ingredients:

  • Steak (thinly sliced)
  • White Onion, sliced
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Hoagie Rolls
  • Avocado Oil
  • Butter
  • Mayonnaise

How to make Philly Cheesesteak on Blackstone Griddle:

  • Preheat the Blackstone grill over medium high heat approximately 400 degrees F.
  • Add the oil and butter to the middle of the flat top. Spread it around so that it can melt. We used avocado oil but you can easily use vegetable oil, canola oil, olive oil or coconut oil instead.
  • Add the onions to the grill. Toss them to coat them in the oil and butter. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until the onions are cooked to your preference.
  • Move the onions to a cooler part of the grill (front or a part of the grill where the burner is off or remove from grill and set aside).

  • Place your hoagie rolls rolls face down on the cooler side of the grill as well so that they will toast slightly. Watch closely so that the rolls do not burn.
  • Add the steak to the center of the grill. Spread it out to a thin layer. Season with the garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Let the steak sear for 3-5 minutes until the juices start to flow. Flip and then use your spatula to chop into smaller pieces. Continue cooking the steak until it is cooked through (2-3 more minutes).

  • Then divide into 4 equal piles on the grill and top each pile with the pepper and onion mixture. Immediately top each pile with 2 slices of cheese and let the cheese melt (1-2 minutes).
  • Spread the mayonnaise onto one side of each of the hoagie rolls.
  • Use your spatula to scoop and lift each pile and add the sliced meat onto one of the toasted hoagie rolls.
  • Serve immediately while warm and enjoy!
  • After you eat make sure you clean your griddle. It is easier than you think. Check out How to Clean Blackstone Griddle.

We recommend putting the meat in a separate container. Then once you are ready to serve again, top it on a toasted bun.
