Ingredients You’ll Need

To create this unforgettable cheesesteak, gather the following ingredients:

  • Thinly sliced steak: Easily sourced from a butcher or sliced yourself from ribeye or top-round steaks.
  • White onion: Delivers beautiful caramelization without overpowering the flavors.
  • Red bell pepper: Adds a touch of sweetness and satisfying crunch.
  • Green bell pepper: Adds tartness and bulk to the sandwich.
  • Oil: Avocado oil is ideal, but any high-heat cooking oil will suffice.
  • Salt: Essential for seasoning the meat to perfection.
  • Black pepper: Adds a slight spiciness that complements the creamy cheese and tender steak.
  • Garlic powder: Enhances the beef’s flavor without overwhelming the other ingredients.
  • Butter: Unsalted butter disperses flavor and controls the overall saltiness.
  • Hoagie rolls: Opt for high-quality rolls that won’t become soggy when filled.
  • Cheese Whiz: The traditional choice for cheesesteak sandwiches, providing a sharp and cheddar-like flavor.
  • Provolone (optional): Intensifies richness and depth in each bite.

Tips for Unparalleled Success

For the perfect Blackstone Philly Cheesesteak, keep these expert tips in mind:

  • If thinly sliced steak isn’t readily available, freeze your steak for 30 minutes before slicing. This ensures easier knife work.
  • When slicing the steak yourself, use a sharp chef’s knife for effortless cutting.
  • Clean your grill as soon as possible after cooking to maintain its excellent condition. Scrape the griddle while it’s still hot and, if necessary, use water to remove food debris. After cleaning, oil the griddle with your preferred cooking oil.
  • Avoid overcooking the steak to enjoy its melt-in-your-mouth goodness. Thinly sliced steak cooks quickly and can easily become overdone.
  • Toast the hoagie rolls to create a barrier between the steak and bread, keeping the roll fluffy on the inside while providing a satisfying crunch.
  • Season generously for outstanding flavor. Salt, pepper, and garlic powder are essential; feel free to experiment with your favorite seasonings.
  • Serve the cheesesteak immediately for the best melty texture and juicy flavors.
