Savory and Delicious Philly Cheesesteak Casserole

**Disclaimer: I was compensated both monetarily and product wise from All opinions expressed in this post are my own.

Made with a trio of bell peppers and tender rib eye steak slices, this recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Casserole can be served by itself or as a delicious traditional sandwich. It has the flavoring of an au jus sandwich, in cheesesteak form! 

Growing up, my mother always had a way of turning a simple new recipe into a family favorite. I remember the first time she introduced us to Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches. It was something that we had never heard of until the day she made them. I can’t speak for other family members, however, it was love at first bite for me. How could something as simple as steak, provolone cheese, mayonnaise, and onions taste like it came from a Philadelphia street vendor? We didn’t even live in Philly!

This recipe for Savory and Delicious Philly Cheesesteak Casserole is not only easy, but is also full of fresh vegetables and tender cuts of steak.

Since my mother was a working woman back then, she didn’t always have extra time to dice, slice, and chop ingredients in certain recipes. She was a pro at discovering little short cuts along her culinary journey, especially when she made her Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches. It wasn’t unusual for us to find Steak Umm wrappers in the trash after she finished making them. It was the quickest way she could think of to feed our family of five back then.

Whether we work full time or not, I think we are all guilty of taking short cuts when it comes to cooking and baking. When the baby is crying for the upteenth time or you find out you have to take your daughter to an after school meeting that wasn’t on the calendar, it’s only natural that we find certain cooking short cuts to make dinner time easier.

Although I still do love my mom’s sandwiches, this recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Casserole is 100% from scratch and is definitely not like the ones she used to make. To save on time, you can slice the bell peppers and steak the day before and have them chill in the fridge over night until preparation time.

You can serve this straight out of the casserole dish as is or you can take this delicious filling and place it into toasted hoagie rolls like we did. You’ll be satisfied either way you choose to devour it.

    Our family enjoyed this recipe very much! It tasted just like an au jus sandwich but still had the characteristics of a Philly Cheesesteak one 😉

  2. Holy cow! I’ve never tried making a Philly Cheesesteak before, but I know it would be right up my dad’s alley! I love the casserole alternative as well – this might actually make a great Father’s Day recipe!

    1. It would definitely make a good Fathers Day recipe! What a wonderful idea 😉

  3. 5 stars
    I’ve never had an authentic Philly cheesesteak, but I had a homemade one once, and I’m determined to get the real thing one of these days. I love that this is in casserole form since that’s way easier for me to pack up in Tupperware and take with me to work.

    1. Yes! The fact that you can place it in Tupperware and take it to work is a HUGE plus!

  4. 5 stars
    I’m a Chicago gal, so I’ve always been more of an Italian Beef person, but I have to admit that this looks really tasty! I wasn’t expecting to see red wine and ginger as part of the recipe, and it’s making my mouth water!

    1. The red wine and vinegar definitely gives it a little kick!

  5. 5 stars
    I made this for a church dinner. It was a big hit! All gone in no time.I used hotdog buns instead of hoagie rolls.

    1. I’m so happy to hear this Eddye! Thank you for letting us know 😉 These would go well with hotdog buns as well.
