Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak Ingredients
A Philly cheesesteak is a simple sandwich made of a hoagie roll and steak. However, to add some excitement, we've taken a maximalist approach while staying true to classic ingredients. Making the filling is super easy - mix up a marinade for the steak and veggies and roast them together on a sheet pan. The ingredients include sirloin steak, bell peppers (red and green), onions, and optional mushrooms. We highly recommend using sirloin steak as an upgrade from the classic version.
- Avocado or extra-virgin olive oil: Either oil works well for this recipe, depending on your preference. Avocado oil has a higher smoke point, which makes it better for high-heat cooking, while olive oil adds a delicious flavor.
- Worcestershire sauce: This savory sauce adds a depth of flavor to the marinade for the steak and veggies.
- Salt and black pepper: These classic seasonings enhance the flavors of the other ingredients.
- Ground mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, and dried thyme: These spices add a delicious depth of flavor.
- Brown sugar: A touch of sweetness helps balance the savory flavors in the marinade.
- Sirloin steak: Look for a very thinly sliced sirloin steak for best results.
- Yellow onion, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper: These classic Philly cheesesteak veggies add a delicious crunch and sweetness to the sandwich.
- White button mushrooms (optional): If you like mushrooms, they add a nice earthy flavor to the dish. However, feel free to leave them out if you're not a fan.
