Ground Beef Philly Cheesesteak | Quick and Easy Sandwich Recipe

ground beef Philly cheesesteak

Who doesn’t love a good Philly cheesesteak sandwich? This ground beef Philly version is the bomb! It’s a one-pan recipe and so delicious!

There are a lot of different Philly sandwich recipes out there, and I have a few of my own.

My Instant Pot chicken Philly recipe and my beef Philly (still yet to be posted) are delicious and similar, but this ground beef recipe is super quick and easy to make and it will save you a little money not having to buy a steak or a roast.

Making this Philly with ground meat not only saves you little money, but you don’t have to spend time slicing the meat or even go to the effort of having a butcher do it for you. I actually like making this recipe with GROUND TURKEY as well, which is another option and very tasty.

Some ground beef Philly recipes call for ingredients to make a thickening sauce. I find that this is unnecessary and only adds time and more ingredients to the process. This recipe is simple, straightforward, and delicious without all the fluff.

Italian Dressing Mix I like to add a little zip with some Italian dressing mix, but not necessary. Sometimes I add it and sometimes I don’t.

These ground beef Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are a hit for gatherings and parties, but they also make a quick, simple and delicious everyday meal. You can double the batch and freeze some of the meat mixture for a quick go-to meal later down the road.

What kind of cheese is best to use for your ground beef Philly?

The common cheeses that are used for Philly sandwiches are American cheese, provolone cheese, and there are even recipes out there where you make your own cheese sauce. Our family favorite and what I think is best is simple and yummy provolone cheese.

What about the buns?

Again this is all preference, but I like to use submarine rolls or round ranch rolls.

Ground Beef Philly Cheesesteak Instructions

1- Chop or slice bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms and set them aside. I LOVE THIS MUSHROOM SLICER. It makes the task so much easier.

2- Preheat a large skillet, and when hot, add the ground meat and break it apart as you cook it. Season with salt, pepper and Italian dressing mix.

3- Add onions, peppers, and mushrooms and cook until veggies start to soften. Stir frequently.

***If you like to have your veggies seperate, or if you have picky eaters, you can saute the veggies in a separate pan and add them on top of the meat mxture. There are more ways than one to sandwich!

4- You can add the cheese to the whole mixture or you can add the cheese separately to each sandwich and place under the broiler for a few minutes.

I like to place some slices of cheese on top of the meat mixture while it’s still in the pan, cover and let it melt while off the burner. When the cheese is melted. stir to incorporate.

5- Slice buns open and top with a generous amount of filling. If you want the rolls to have a bit of a toasted crunch to them, place them under the broiler for a few minutes then add the filling.

Oh, baby, these are so yummy. Serve with chips, carrot, and celery sticks and you have a quick tasty meal.
