Unveiling the Perfect Meat for Blackstone Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

When it comes to choosing the best meat for these mouthwatering sandwiches, Rib-eye steaks are the go-to option. They provide unparalleled flavor and tenderness, making them a favorite among many. However, if you prefer a leaner option, flank steak can also work wonders. To make things even easier, you can find ready-to-cook, tender shaved ribeye options in the meat aisle of your local grocery store or in the freezer section. If you can’t find the perfect cut of meat, ground beef can be a worthy substitute in a pinch.

Ingredients That Create Magic

To whip up the ultimate Blackstone Philly Cheesesteak, gather the following ingredients:

  • Shaved Ribeye Steak: Thaw the meat and allow it to reach room temperature before cooking. Ready-to-cook options are a great time-saving choice.
  • Sliced Bell Peppers: Fresh bell peppers add incredible flavor, but frozen ones work just as well if you’re short on time. However, ensure you avoid using green bell peppers as they don’t provide the same flavor profile.
  • Sliced Onions: White onions are the preferred choice for an authentic Philly Cheesesteak. You can use frozen ones or opt for fresh, depending on your preference.
  • Blackstone Cheesesteak Seasoning: This easy-to-use spice blend is a must-have for an authentic taste. Alternatively, you can create your own seasoning blend at home.
  • Minced Garlic: Wet or dried, the choice is yours. The minced garlic you use will infuse the steak with incredible flavor.
  • Garlic Salt: A Trader Joe’s Garlic Salt Grinder adds a delightful touch, but regular sea salt or garlic powder can be used as well.
  • Pepper
  • Worcestershire Sauce: No specific measurement needed. Simply splash a bit on the steak while cooking.
  • Vegetable Oil: While olive oil is an option, vegetable oil is a cost-effective alternative that works just as well.
  • Buns: Traditional hoagie rolls are the preferred choice for an authentic experience. However, you can use any thick white bread that suits your taste.
  • Butter
  • Cheese: Provolone cheese is the classic choice, but feel free to add sliced American cheese or cheese whiz if that’s what you prefer.

Perfecting the Blackstone Philly Cheesesteak on the Flat Top Grill

Slice the bell peppers and onions and have your shaved steak thawed and ready to go. Fire up your Blackstone Griddle and ensure it is properly oiled to prevent the ingredients from sticking. One of the many benefits of a flat-top grill is its quick heating and easy maintenance.

Spread the vegetables over the griddle, adding a touch of minced garlic for extra flavor. If using frozen vegetables, place them directly on the grill. On the other side of the griddle, lay out the shaved meat and generously season it with Blackstone Cheesesteak Seasoning, Garlic Salt, and pepper. Add minced garlic to the meat to enhance its taste and aroma.

Using a long metal spatula, flip the meat around to ensure even cooking. Once the meat is almost done, combine it with the vegetables. Feel free to add additional seasoning if needed. When the meat and vegetables are perfectly cooked, remove them from the griddle.

Scrape off any residue from the griddle and reoil it carefully. Prepare the buns by spreading a little butter on the inside and sprinkling them with garlic salt. Toast the buns until they turn a toasty brown. For a quick and easy toasting method, use a dome-like stainless steel bowl. If desired, flip the toasted buns and place cheese on the inside to make them extra cheesy.

Serve your Blackstone Philly Cheesesteaks with the cheese melted and enjoy!
