  • 2 tbsp olive oil or butter
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup sliced bell peppers
  • 1 cup mushrooms — optional, but recommended
  • 1/4 cup chicken or beef broth
  • 1 1/2 - 2 lb beef — either raw or cooked leftovers
  • 1/4 tsp paprika — optional
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 Italian Seasoning — optional
  • 2/3 cheese - I used shredded mozzarella — but American and Provolone are the most commonly used cheeses for Philly, even Pepper Jack cheese will work


  1. If using raw steak (not leftovers), slice very thin. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Slice the pepper, onions and mushrooms. (1/4-1/8 - inch thick)
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add the onions and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add peppers, mushrooms, salt and cook for 4-5 minutes, until softened and the liquid from the mushrooms has almost  evaporated. Add the remaining seasonings.

  4. Add the steak - if using raw shaved steak, cook for 2-3 minutes, if using cooked leftover steak, cook for 1 minute. Add the stock. Cook for 1-2 more minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  6. Top with cheese and bake for 5-7 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Serve.
