What You Need for Cheesesteak Sliders:

When we first made this recipe the ingredients were kept simple. I did not add any seasoning beyond salt and pepper. After making this a dozen times and testing combinations we found the PERFECT balance.

  • Ground Beef
  • Onion and Peppers
  • Ketchup
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Cornstarch
  • Beef Broth
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Hawaiian Rolls
  • Provolone or American Cheese
  • Butter
  • Garlic

To help inspire flavor, I reached back into my memory from my very first visit to both Pat’s and Geno’s. If you’ve been to Philly, you’ll recognize these as the two famous Philly Cheesesteak places in the city! One boasts the use of provolone while the other recommends American Cheese. Both work for this sandwich.

They also can’t compare to the original. If you’re ever in the city I suggest stopping by both! Pat’s is my personal fave.

How to make cheesesteak sliders

Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add the ground beef, onion, and pepper to a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until the beef is browned and the onion and pepper is soft, about 2 to 4 minutes.
  3. In a medium measuring cup, whisk together the ketchup, Worcestershire, salt, pepper, cornstarch, and beef broth.
  4. Pour the liquid over the beef and peppers. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the liquid has thickened.
  5. While the meat mix is finishing, slice the Hawaiian rolls in half lengthwise. Place the bottoms in a half sheet pan (or 9×13).
  6. Add the meat mixture to the bottom rolls. Top with cheese followed by the top of the rolls.
  7. Whisk together the melted butter and garlic. Pour over the top of the sliders.
  8. Lightly cover with foil and bake 20 minutes.

Cheesesteak Sliders Tips and FAQs

  • Here’s the deal, I really like to just toss the onion and pepper into the beef right away. I feel like it cuts down on the cooking time and leaves one less dish to clean. You definitely can cook both of these sperate if you’d like.
  • Hawaiian rolls are our go-to but any roll will do.
  • Try adding mushrooms to this dish for even more fun flavor.

What’s the best cheese for Philly cheesesteak sliders:

Here’s the deal, if you visit one of the classic staples in Philadelphia you are given the option of Provolone, Cheese Whiz, or American Cheese. SO, there is no right answer here. A lot of people lean towards provolone. I, personally, prefer American. The choice is up to you!
