Blackstone Philly Cheesesteaks

Loads of big, beefy flavor, tender veggies, and oodles of cheese make Philly Cheesestseaks so irresistible, and when you make Blackstone Philly Cheesesteaks, they’ll be ready in no time!

Without getting into any arguments about what makes a traditional Philly cheesesteak (veggies? Provolone vs. Cheez Whiz? the bun), THIS is how I like my Philly cheesesteaks – fully loaded. With oodles of sauteed mushrooms, onions, and peppers, mountains of tender beef, and I top these hearty Blackstone sandwiches with melted Provolone. If this is your kind of sandwich, then read on. If you insist on Cheez Whiz and no veggies, you can do that but you’ll need to adjust the ingredients.

Making Blackstone Philly Cheesesteaks is griddle cooking 101. Making these amazing sandwiches or chicken fried rice are probably the first things any new griddler cooks! And for good reason – making these beef sandwiches is so easy!

Blackstone Griddles allow for zone cooking. This means that you can cook different ingredients in different spots on your Blackstone. And, if you’ve got a larger model with different burners, you can even cook at different temperatures. This comes in handy when making something like Philly Cheesesteaks so that you can cook the onions – which take longer – separately from the peppers – which don’t take long at all.

You won’t get any arguments from me about how to top a Philly sandwich, but one thing’s for certain – they sure are delicious!

  • Make as many as you need all at once without dirtying a single pan!

Ingredients

  • Cooking oil – Avocado oil is my pick for high heat griddling.
  • Sliced beef – See my comments below about the best beef for Philly cheesesteaks.
  • Onions – Sweet yellow onions are my favorite.
  • Peppers – Green, yellow, red – they all work!
  • Mushrooms – Fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced.
  • Salt and pepper
  • Provolone cheese – Or your favorite cheese – I won’t judge you 🙂
  • Butter – To toast the buns.
  • Spicy garlic aioli – For even more flavor.
  • Buns – Amoroso rolls are traditional, but if you can’t find those, any bakery-fresh buns or rolls will work.

What’s The Best Beef For Philly Cheesesteaks?

The BEST Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are made with shaved ribeye. You can sometimes luck out and find packages of that in the grocery store. Ribeye is meaty and flavorful, and it has enough fat that adds so much flavor to the sandwiches.

You can also use Steak-Umms and even deli-sliced roast beef.

How To Make Blackstone Philly Cheesesteaks

  1. Preheat your griddle to medium-high.
  2. Add a squirt of oil (about a tablespoon) to one area and start the onions. You want them cooked through but not caramelized.
  3. Add another squirt of oil to another spot and start the mushrooms.
  4. Add oil to a third spot and start the beef cooking. Season the beef with salt and pepper.
  5. Combine the onions and mushrooms with the sliced peppers when the onions are nearly cooked.
  6. Butter the buns and put them cut-side down on the flat top to toast.
  7. Divide the meat and veggies into 4 portions. Scoop the veggies on top of the meat, and add the cheese to the top of the veggies.
  8. Cover the portion with a cooking dome and let it heat through for a minute or two until the cheese melts.
  9. Transfer the cheese-topped meat and veggies to the buns and dig in!

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Cooking a meal on the Blackstone is all about multitasking. But if you’re not up to cooking 4 things at once, do the meat, and veggies one at a time, then move them off the heat. The transferred heat from the cooking area will keep everything warm.
  • Don’t like some of the veggies? Skip them! There are no rules when it comes to Philly cheesesteaks on the flat top!
  • Sliced or shredded Provolone cheese works, but you can also use Monterey jack, colby, gouda, or your favorite easy-melting cheese.
  • Prep all the veggies ahead of time so that cooking is a breeze!
