We’re a Football Family! We love the game. No one loves it more than our son Landon! He is a die-hard Eagles Fan! DIE HARD! Although they’re out of running for the Super Bowl this year….we’re celebrating the big day with these amazing Easy Philly Cheese Steak Sliders!
I’ve been dreaming of making this recipe! Selfishly… because I LOVE a good Philly Sandwich! I especially love my version! (I know…it’s not “traditional”….sometimes a few changes are a good thing!)
What’s not to love? Tender flavorful beef, grilled onions and green peppers, loads of melted provolone cheese… all on top of soft dinner rolls topped with butter and “everything bagel” topping! (That last part…is ALL my idea! I’m owning it…cause it’s brilliant!)
When it comes to hosting a party…any party…I want foods that I can prepare quickly so that I can PAR-TAY too! These are not only scrumptious…they’re SUPER easy to make and will have all your football fans clamoring for thirds and fourths!
From the beginning I knew I wanted to add a Fun topping to these Philly Steak Sliders! Everything Bagel Seasoning with butter sounded like the perfect topping.
I know you can order it on-line, I’m sharing a link in the recipe card below, and even find it in specialty shops like “Trader Joes”. I live the in the country…we don’t have Trader Joes! (Unless you count “Joe” down the street!)
That meant I had to make my own. So I threw on my best NY accent and went to work! (Have y’all heard country slang mix with Bronx? Me either…cause I can’t do it!)
In a bowl combine 1/4 cup sesame seeds, 1/4 cup poppy seeds, 1/4 cup dried onion flakes, 1 Tablespoon Garlic Salt. If you can find black sesame seeds…add 1/4 cup of those too. You can also add 1/4 cup dried garlic flakes. I didn’t have any on hand so I went with the above.
Mix all the ingredients together. This is going to make more than you’ll need so you can store it and use it later…or you can make 1,000 sliders! (I won’t pass judgement!)
In a small bowl add 2 Tablespoons melted butter and 2 Tablespoons Everything Bagel Seasoning. Mix and set aside. You’re going to brush all that deliciousnes on top of the dinner rolls, aka “buns”… later, but for now, those bits need to soak in buttah!
Now that the topping is ready…it’s time to make the Steak Sandwiches!
A good Philly Steak Sandwich has four components! The Steak. The Cheese. The Bun…and The Grilled Veggies. Very simple and yet so flavorful.
Let’s start with the Veggies! Begin with 1/2 cup chopped onions and…
One chopped bell pepper. Please note you can add mushrooms…if you don’t have “shroom” haters at your Nest! I obviously have one. We love him…so we skipped the mushrooms.
In a medium skillet over medium-high heat melt 1 Tablespoon butter.
Add chopped vegetables and sautè…let’em sizzle till they turn a beautiful golden color on the edges…
and are tender! This releases all the flavor in those vegetables. Chopping the vegetables makes it easier on a slider than the traditional sliced vegetables on a Philly Cheese Steak.
Once the vegetables are done set them aside and start on the Steak!
Here’s where the “cheating” portion of my recipe comes into play! (Play. Football. Get it? I work hard for these puns!)
Traditional Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches are made with thinly sliced Prime Rib! (Yeah….that isn’t happening at this nest! That’s a bit pricey for this Momma bird!)
Use 1 lb. of thinly sliced Roast Beef from the Service Deli of your local market! Yep…that service deli lady is going to LOVE you when you ask her to “shave” 1 lb of Roast Beef. (Just smile…a lot!) This is much easier than you trying to chop up the meat during cooking.
Place 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil in a large skillet. Heat over medium high heat. Add that beautiful shaved, thinly sliced roast beef.
Heat through until warm and slightly “grilled”.
Oh I know! That heading could go so many directions! We’re talking dinner rolls! (Sheesh! I know you! lol)
TIP: You’ll need one package of 12 count dinner rolls that are stuck together! Snuggled up tight! This allows you to make the sliders in a group rather than individually!
Using a bread knife carefully cut the rolls in half. Creating a top and bottom.
Place bottom of rolls in a 9 x 13 baking dish. You can use a baking sheet too, I prefer to use a baking dish so that it holds everything together until the sandwiches have been baked and the cheese melted…which will hold the sliders together.
Spread a thin layer of Mayo on the bottom of the rolls.
Add warmed shaved Roast Beef and spread evenly over rolls.
Top with Provolone Cheese slices. I know! There are two versions of Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches…one is the traditional cheese sauce…the other melted provolone.
I went with provolone because it’s less messy for a slider, holds everything together, and this is a “finger” food for a Party!
Top with the sauteed veggies and place in a preheated 350° oven for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted!
Place the top of the rolls on top of the sandwiches. Brush the top with the melted butter and “Everything seasoning”. This is the “BAM” on top of these sliders! (We all need a little “BAM” in our lives!)
Place Rolls back in the oven for 3-5 minutes until tops are slightly toasted.
Remove from the oven. Using a sharp knife cut each sandwich apart.
Place sliders on serving platter and get the heck out of the way! (Seriously…GET OUT OF THE WAY! You got hungry football fans wanting grub!)
Look at all that YUM! Tender juicy beef! Melted cheesy provolone! Scrumptious sautèed veggies! All topped off with those buttery finger licking Everything Buns!
I have to tell you…I LOVE these sliders!
Super easy to make! So delicious and sure to be a hit with your Party guests! They also reheat perfectly in the microwave! What can I say…the perfect Philly Cheese Steak Slider!
