A classic Philly cheesesteak, a mixture of sautéed steak and onions smothered in Cheese Whiz and wedged into a hoagie, can really make a crowd go nuts. Next time you’re craving one, though, skip the hoagie and try tossing that meat, onion, and cheese combination with fries. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 Cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1/2 Cup thinly sliced beef
  • 1 1/2 Cup frozen fries, baked or deep-fried
  • Easy Cheese, as needed
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

Heat the butter in a small skillet to medium high. Add the onion and sauté until translucent and slightly golden brown around the edges. Add the beef and toss well. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and cook until the beef is just medium rare, about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the fries in a fry boat or shallow bowl. Drizzle the fries with a little bit of the Easy Cheese. Top the fries with the steak and onions mixture, and dress with more Easy Cheese.

Philly Cheese Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Philly Cheese Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
