The Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich, originating from Philadelphia in the 1930s, was the brainchild of Pat and Harry Olivieri, who experimented with chopped beef and grilled onions in a sandwich roll. Quickly gaining popularity among locals, this simple yet satisfying sandwich of thinly sliced beef, caramelized onions, and melted cheese on a crusty Italian roll has become an iconic symbol of Philadelphia’s culinary heritage and a beloved classic across America.


  • 1/2 lb (225g) ribeye steak, thinly sliced

  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 small green bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 2 hoagie rolls or sub rolls

  • 4 slices provolone cheese


  • Prepare the steak and vegetables:
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the thinly sliced ribeye steak to the skillet and cook until browned and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the steak from the skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the thinly sliced onion and bell pepper to the skillet and cook until softened and slightly caramelized, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Assemble the sandwiches:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Split the hoagie rolls or sub rolls in half lengthwise and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Layer the cooked ribeye steak on the bottom half of each roll, followed by the sautéed onions and bell peppers.
  • Top each sandwich with 2 slices of provolone cheese.
  • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Serve:
  • Remove the sandwiches from the oven and carefully close them with the top halves of the rolls.
  • Slice the sandwiches in half, if desired, and serve hot.
