You are the Chef: Crafting the Perfect Cheesesteak Sandwich

Gentlemen, let’s talk about a timeless classic that’s close to many a man’s heart – the delectable cheesesteak sandwich. Originating from the streets of Philadelphia, this savory treat has become an iconic dish that’s loved worldwide. In today’s “You are the Chef” segment, we’re breaking down the steps to create that perfect, melt-in-your-mouth cheesesteak sandwich right in your kitchen. Let’s dig in!


  • Meat: 500g of ribeye steak or sirloin (thinly sliced).
  • Bread: 4 fresh hoagie rolls or baguette sections.
  • Cheese: Provolone, American, or even Cheese Whiz (yes, purists argue for it).
  • Veggies: 1 large onion (sliced), optional bell peppers or mushrooms.
  • Seasoning: Salt, pepper, and a bit of garlic powder.
  • Condiments: Mayonnaise, ketchup, or hot sauce (based on personal preference).


  1. Preparation: Place your steak in the freezer for about 45 minutes. This makes it easier to slice thinly. Afterward, slice the steak against the grain into very thin pieces.
  2. Veggie Prep: In a skillet or frying pan, sauté the sliced onions (and bell peppers or mushrooms if you’re using them) in some oil until they’re translucent and slightly caramelized. Transfer them to a bowl.
  3. Steak Time: In the same skillet, increase the heat and add a bit more oil. Toss in your thinly sliced steak. Season with salt, pepper, and a touch of garlic powder. Cook quickly, stirring frequently until the steak is browned but still tender.
  4. Cheese Integration: Once the steak is nearly cooked, layer your cheese slices over the top. Allow the heat to melt the cheese slightly, then stir to integrate the melting cheese throughout the meat.
  5. Building Your Sandwich: Slice open your hoagie rolls without cutting all the way through. If you like, you can spread some mayo, ketchup, or hot sauce on the bread. Layer on a generous portion of the steak and cheese mixture, followed by the sautéed onions and other veggies.
  6. Serving: Serve immediately while everything’s still hot and melty. Pair it with a cold beverage, perhaps a beer or soda, and some crispy fries or chips on the side.


There you have it, chefs! The legendary cheesesteak sandwich in all its glory. While there are countless variations, this basic recipe will give you a flavorful, authentic taste of what many believe to be the epitome of sandwiches. Remember, like any recipe, feel free to adjust based on your preferences. Maybe add some jalapeños for a kick, or try a different type of cheese. The kitchen is your domain, and in it, you are the chef!
