Homemade Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches are perfect for a weeknight meal. I mean, don’t you just love a great sandwich!? I know me and my family do. This is the EASIEST Philly Cheesesteak recipe you may have ever found! All the real Philly natives out there, don’t shun me, because nothing about this Philly Cheesesteak is authentic! Let’s just call it “a spin on the ol’ classic.” Although it’s not 100% authentic, I guarantee you it is absolutely delicious!
The beautiful part about this recipe is that you can use leftover steak, or even chicken. The Velveeta cheese is the perfect pair to this sandwich, it creates that nice cheesy layer that every cheesesteak sandwich needs and deserves. My local grocery stores sale these delicious loaves of bread, Cuban or Puerto Rican bread especially, for $1! Yes ONE dollar! It’s bananas, and I buy one almost everyday to go with dinner.
I try to make my life as simple as possible when it comes to cooking dinner, so I’ve shared this staple with you before, but here it is again. This three pepper blend comes in handy for many-many different meals. They add that amazing “ZING” to this philly cheesesteak recipe as well. If you haven’t already, give them a try.
