Philly Cheesesteak Sliders
Pull apart loaded Philly Cheesesteak Sliders are one of the best tasty game day recipes! They’re really perfect anytime you want to serve a crowd – from cookouts, to party appetizers, these trusty beef sliders are sure to be popular with everyone you serve them to.
The layers of thinly sliced steak, cheese, sliced onion and bell pepper are seriously so good. But the cherry on top? That garlic butter glaze is really just the most amazing thing. It’s so delicious and brings the sliders to a whole new level.
I’ve partnered up with BUBBL’R to bring you this game day snack. I love serving it with an ice cold can of their pomegranate acai refresh’r flavor! You can find out where to buy BUBBL’R here.
Rolls: My favorite rolls to use for sliders are King’s Hawaiian Rolls, but you can use any pull apart dinner rolls. Pretzel rolls would make a delicious option if you happen to find those. If you’d prefer to use hoagie rolls or Amoroso rolls, you can use them and then just cut them into slider portions to serve.
Olive Oil: This is to saute the steak, peppers, and onions in. You can swap the olive oil for another cooking oil, or you can use butter instead.
Steak: Tender ribeye steak sliced super thin is the best choice for cheesesteaks. Some other steaks to look out for are ones that are marketed as “shaved steak”, “sandwich steak”, or “Steak-umm”.
You can also use ground beef (I actually think they would be much easier to eat if they were made with hamburger meat – the steak strips are more authentic, but they are a little hard to pull apart), leftover roast beef, or deli roast beef. You could even use ground turkey if you’re looking for a healthier option.
Onion: I prefer yellow onion for this recipe, but you could also use sweet white onion. The key is to slice it very thin. If you have the time to properly caramelize your onions, it would definitely bring the flavor to a whole new level!
Bell Pepper: For the right flavor profile, it’s important to use thinly sliced green bell pepper. Red, yellow, or orange bell peppers will be too sweet.
Cheese: I prefer sliced provolone, but you can also use sliced white American cheese.
Mayonnaise: This is the sauce for the sandwich, and it helps make sure the sandwich isn’t too dry. If you’d like a bit more of a kick, you can mix in some freshly grated horseradish (or some bottled creamy horseradish). I wouldn’t recommend using the jarred horseradish that isn’t marketed as “creamy horseradish” because it tends to have a strong acidic flavor from the vinegar.
Seasonings: The seasonings we’re using to flavor the steak are salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Feel free to add some Worcestershire sauce in there if you love the flavor!
Butter, Garlic, and Dried Parsley: These are the ingredients for the garlic butter glaze. I definitely recommend taking the time to make the glaze, it really elevates the flavor of the sliders to a whole new level. If you don’t feel like mincing garlic, try mixing melted butter with some everything bagel seasoning a different, but equally delicious, glaze.
How To Make Philly Cheesesteak Sliders
Start by sauteing the sliced onion and green bell peppers. Once those are cooked, remove them from the pan and add the steak and seasonings. Saute the thinly sliced steak until it’s cooked through, then drain any excess liquid, and set the beef to the side. (See the recipe card below for the full printable instructions.)
Cut the slider rolls in half horizontally, and place the bottom half on a greased baking sheet. Top it with mayonnaise and the cooked steak strips.
Top the cooked shaved steak with the sauteed onions and peppers, then add a layer of provolone or white American cheese.
Put the top half of the buns on top of the sandwiches, and lightly press it down. Brush the garlic butter mixture over the top of the slider buns.
Bake uncovered in a preheated oven until the cheese is melted. If you prefer the steak sandwiches to taste steamed instead of baked, feel free to cover them with aluminum foil before you bake them. See the recipe card below for the full written instructions, including ingredient amounts, cooking times, and helpful tips, etc.
What Cut Of Beef Is Best For Philly Cheesesteak?
Shaved tender ribeye steak is the best cut of steak for cheesesteak sandwiches. Since it is a well-marbled cut of meat, it’s very tender when it’s cooked, which makes the best sandwiches.
What Sides Go With Philly Cheesesteak Sliders?
These sliders would taste amazing served with a side dish of french fries, potato wedges, onion rings, potato chips, mozzarella sticks, fried mushrooms, or fried pickles.
