The Philly Steak Sandwich is an iconic American sandwich originating from Philadelphia. This sandwich features thinly sliced, juicy beef steak, melted cheese, and caramelized onions, all piled high on a soft hoagie roll. It’s a satisfying and delicious meal, perfect for a hearty lunch or dinner.


  • 4 hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
  • 500g ribeye steak, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 slices provolone cheese (or Cheez Whiz for a more authentic experience)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: sautéed mushrooms, bell peppers


  1. Prepare the steak: If not already thinly sliced, place the ribeye steak in the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up, then slice it as thinly as possible.
  2. Cook the onions: In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until they are caramelized and golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Cook the steak: In the same skillet, add the remaining olive oil and increase the heat to high. Add the steak slices and cook quickly, for about 1-2 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Assemble the sandwich: Divide the cooked steak into 4 portions in the skillet. Top each portion with sautéed onions and a slice of provolone cheese. Cover the skillet for a minute to let the cheese melt.
  5. Serve: Scoop each portion and place it into the split hoagie rolls. Serve immediately.
