Mouthwatering Philly cheesesteak sliders are loaded with tender slices of beef, sauteed peppers and onions, and plenty of gooey cheese!
Make these fan-favorite sandwiches for your next game day party or as a fun family dinner for your loved ones.
You will love that these pack all of your favorite Philly flavors into an individual slider bun, with a few flavorful upgrades. However, I will also give you options to customize these sandwiches to fit your tastes. Like my cheesesteak omelet, you will find you don't have to craft a traditional sandwich to enjoy great Philly flavors!
Ingredients & Substitutions
- Sweet dinner rolls - Rather than using a hoagie roll, like a classic cheesesteak, Kings Hawaiian rolls are perfect for sliders.
- Olive oil
- Beef sirloin - Traditionally Phillies use thin slices of ribeye steak or top round beef. These should be used on my sliders as well. I will also mention sirloin as an easy option. If you want to take a shortcut, you can use deli roast beef.
- Worcestershire sauce
- Fresh ground black pepper
- Garlic powder
- Table salt
- Green bell pepper - Classic cheesesteaks did not originally have green peppers, so feel free to leave these out if desired.
- Sweet yellow onion
- Provolone cheese - Cheez whiz or American cheese are more traditional options for these sandwiches, and you are welcome to use either of these. However, I believe Provolone is a much better choice.
- Worcestershire sauce
- Onion powder
How to make them
Making these easy Philly cheesesteak sliders begins by searing the thinly sliced beef in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place the sliced steak in the hot skillet along with olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, a salt, then sear until the steak is no longer pink and starting to char.
Use these same tips to craft an amazing venison cheesesteak as well!
Remove the steak when cooked and set aside. Add a little more oil to the skillet and drop the heat to medium then saute peppers and onions until tender-crisp.
Make the sauce by mixing together the melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, and onion powder in a small bowl.
Slice your slider rolls in half with a serrated knife. Then, as when making any homemade sliders, begin assembly by placing the bottoms of the rolls in a small baking dish, then top with cooked steak, sauteed onions, peppers, and a layer of cheese. Cover with the top of the rolls and paint with the sauce mixture.
Cover your dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes in a 400-degree oven, then remove the foil and bake for 5 minutes longer. Remove from the oven and serve with French fries, onion rings, or potato salad.
Make ahead tip - If you wish to make these ahead of time, you can cook the meat and vegetables in advance. Gently reheat them when you are almost ready to serve, then assemble the sliders and bake.
Storing and Reheating Leftovers
Leftover cheesesteak sliders should be placed in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to one week. The leftovers are best reheated in a 350-degree oven while covered in aluminum foil until heated through.
