Philly Cheesesteak

I always love an easy dinner. Sometimes I'm so burnt out by 6:00 that I just need a quick and easy meal that takes little to no effort. This recipe was given to me by my friend (because we're always asking each other what we're making for dinner!) I would've thought that a Philly Cheesesteak would take a lot of time, but this couldn't be simpler. Plus it's delicious!
Philly Cheesesteaks
1-2 T. olive oil (vegetable oil works too)
1/2 onion, sliced
1 bell pepper, sliced
1 lb. deli sliced roast beef, roughly chopped
8 slices provolone cheese
4 whole wheat buns, split

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and pepper and cook until tender. Add roast beef and heat until warm and juicy. Keep warm. Meanwhile, arrange 2 slices cheese in each bun. Top with meat mixture so cheese can melt. Serve warm. Enjoy!

I had leftover meat and it kept very well in the fridge. In fact, it tasted pretty darn yummy the next day!


  1. That looks positively delicious!! but being a former Texan, Living in Philly, I can only say, that ain't no Philly
    you need chipsteak, onions are ok but fried, and never peppers....nope....well hot peppers are good. Cheese is a matter of preference but cheez whiz or american is the cheese of choice. and never whole wheat rolls.... unfortunately most use this terrible white bread type of Amorosa roll....yuk....but a good hard roll is preferred!

    But your sandwich does look delicious!!

  2. Looks like you made the right choice for dinner! Looks yummy.
