Mini Philly Cheesesteaks

Chef John

"Miniaturized sandwiches don't usually float my boat, or submarine, as they're almost always not as good as the full-sized versions, but these mini Philly cheesesteaks really captured everything I love about the classic."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line baking sheets with aluminum foil.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk flour into hot butter and cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is pale and flour taste cooks off, about 1 minute. Pour milk into flour mixture and cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is hot and thickened, 3 to 6 minutes. Add 2 ounces provolone cheese, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and salt; stir until cheese is completely melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Season steak all over with salt and ground black pepper.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steak in hot oil, turning occasionally, until meat is slightly firm and pink on the inside, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer meat to a plate.
  5. Return skillet to heat and pour water into the skillet; bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Pour liquid from the skillet over steak. Cool steak to room temperature; dice meat and place meat and accumulated juices from the plate into a large bowl.
  6. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; saute onion and peppers in hot oil until softened and slightly translucent, about 5 minutes.
  7. Stir peppers and onions mixture into diced meat; season with salt and pepper.
  8. Spread bread slices out on prepared baking sheets and drizzle remaining olive oil over the top. Turn slices over so that the oiled-side is facing down. Spread a thick layer of cheese mixture onto each slice. Spoon meat mixture over cheese. Sprinkle provolone cheese over the top of each slice.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and cheese is melted, 12 to 15 minutes.

Nice weekend app. I took other's advice and cooked the steak first. Deglazed the pan and used the pan to saute the peppers and onions, getting last bits of the fond. The "provolone whiz" was ...

This was soooo good! I will definitely make this again, but some things to keep in mind - it took longer to prepare than I thought; cook the meat first, cheese second - it cools and is harder to...

Instructions were precise! I used yellow peppers instead and it tastes so good! May not look like the pros but it taste like the real thing

Delish! Next time I make these I will do the steak portion first then leave it sit to cool and do the sauce and chopping. Added a bit more Cayenne then it called for, it added more flavor and h...

Great tasting and easy!

Made as directed, used a smaller Italian loaf as baguette crusts are a little too crunchy for our tastes. Out of 3 dishes for the Super Bowl this was the favorite by far! Have never been disappo...

I used sautéed onions and red and yellow bell peppers, and this was amazing!

These were very good! I wouldn't say that I got 48 out of this recipe but we had plenty for a group of 9 adults and other apps to share.
