If you’re looking to bring your A-game to the party and indulge in the classic flavors of Philly cheesesteaks in a more convenient and handheld package, then look no further than these mouthwatering Philly cheesesteak sliders! Packed with thin-sliced beef, onions, peppers, and melty cheese, these sliders are guaranteed to disappear fast. Let’s dive into the recipe!
Ingredients and Preparation
To start, thinly slice some onions and peppers. For an authentic Philly cheesesteak taste, it’s important to use bell peppers instead of green ones. Set the sliced onions and peppers aside.
Next, you’ll need some shaved steak. Look for Certified Angus Beef shaved steak, which is already thinly sliced. If you can’t find it pre-shaved, you can do it yourself by using a sharp knife to thinly slice a two-pound chunk of top round. The marbling in Certified Angus Beef ensures the best flavor.
Now it’s time to get cooking! Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and add a little neutral oil. Place the sliced onions and peppers in the skillet and cook until they become soft and slightly browned around the edges. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
Add a bit more oil to the skillet and then toss in the shaved steak. Separate the ribbons of beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook the beef in batches to ensure crispy browning. Once cooked, combine the beef with the cooked onions and peppers in the skillet.
Building the Sliders
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees and line a sheet tray with foil. Take a 12-pack of pull-apart Hawaiian rolls and cut them horizontally, keeping all the buns intact. This will allow you to build one large loaded sandwich.
Start by layering provolone cheese (white American cheese works too) on the bottom half of the rolls. Load the shaved steak, onion, and pepper mixture over the cheese. This layer of cheese acts as a barrier to prevent soggy bun bottoms. For extra cheesiness, you can add another layer of cheese before placing the top buns.
Ideally, you should assemble the sliders directly on the sheet tray to make it easier to transfer them to the oven. However, if you’ve already built them elsewhere, carefully transfer the sliders onto the tray. Brush the tops of the buns with melted butter and sprinkle some coarse kosher or sea salt in the center for an extra burst of flavor.
Bake the sliders in the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the top buns are lightly browned. Once they’re ready, it’s time to assemble individual sliders. Cut between each bun to create 12 grab-and-go sliders. Be gentle while cutting to avoid squishing the soft Hawaiian rolls.
Time to Indulge!
Now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor! Each slider features thin-shaved beef with a delightful crispiness, flavorful onions and peppers, and a touch of melty cheese, all nestled between the soft and delicious King’s Hawaiian rolls. The combination of flavors is simply irresistible.
These Philly cheesesteak sliders are the ultimate party snack that will have your guests coming back for more. So go ahead and serve up a batch of these delectable sliders, and get ready to be the star of the party!
