Philly Cheese Steak


  • 2 Ball Park hot dog buns
  • 1/2 Pound Deli roast beef
  • 1 White onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Green bell pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 Pound Provolone cheese, thinly sliced
  • Extra virgin olive oil (for grilling)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Marina sauce (optional)


Heat a griddle or a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Coat with olive oil. Open and toast Ball Park hot dog buns and set aside. Add the onions and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until caramelized, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, salt, and pepper, then push the mixture off to one side of the griddle. Add the meat to the hot part of the griddle.

Cook, stirring and moving the meat until it breaks down slightly and is cooked medium rare, about 2 minutes. Mix the meat and the caramelized onions and bell pepper together. Divide into 2 portions, and top both portions with the cheese. Place in a Ball Park hot dog bun and top with marinara sauce or ketchup if desired.

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.
