Philly Cheesesteak Pasta
Inspired by its classic sandwich counterpart, this Philly cheesesteak pasta features tender beef, peppers, mushrooms, and onions smothered in a creamy Provolone sauce.
- 12 ounces cavatappi pasta (penne or rigatoni are fine substitutes)
- 2 tablespoon cooking oil (or as needed)
- 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak (thinly sliced)
- 8 ounces mushrooms (sliced)
- 2 medium green bell pepper (sliced)
- 1 medium yellow onion (sliced)
- 3 cloves garlic minced (minced)
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 4 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 cup shredded provolone cheese
Cook pasta according to package instructions.
While pasta is cooking add cooking oil to large skillet or saute pan and set over medium heat. Add onions, peppers, and mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are cooked through. Add garlic and cook an additional 2 minutes. Onions and peppers should be slightly tender but still retain some firmness.
Remove vegetables from the skillet, add additional cooking oil as needed, salt and pepper the beef and sear over medium high heat until no longer pink.
Remove beef from the skillet, and shut off heat to let pan cool slightly. Once the pan is cool enough not to scorch butter, prepare the sauce by melting butter in the skillet over low heat and sprinkle in flour to form a roux. Stir continually to prevent burning and cook the roux for 3-5 minutes, or until beginning to brown. (you want to cook it long enough to cook out the raw flour taste)
Slowly incorporate milk, beef broth, and Worcestershire a little bit at a time, stirring the sauce to fully incorporate before more liquid is added to prevent lumps.
Add shredded cheese is batches, stirring to melt into the sauce.
Place noodles in a large bowl with beef and vegetables and pour sauce over. Mix to combine everything and serve.
