Making The Best Philly Cheesesteak Cheesy Bread
You can make this Philly cheese steak cheesy bread to suit your tastes, here are a few more options:
- Cheese: The recipe calls for Provolone, but you can use any cheese you prefer. Just don’t use Cheez Whiz in this recipe, it won’t cook as well on high heat.
- Steak: The more tender the cut of meat, the better your end product will be. I use Ribeye, but skirt steak would also work really well. Just avoid really tough cuts of meat or you will end up with very chewy pieces of meat.
- Marinating Meat: Marinating your meat in sauces like Worcestershire, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce help to break down connective tissue in meat and make it extra tender- perfect for sandwiches.
- Adding Mayonnaise: The mayonnaise on the bread adds a lot of flavor and helps the end product stay moist and creamy, I would not skip it.
Storing Your Cheesesteak Cheesy Bread
- In the Refrigerator: Store your Philly cheese steak cheesy bread in either an airtight container or wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. It will last for up to 4 days.
- In the Freezer: Your cheesy bread can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
- Reheating: To keep your bread from getting soggy, I recommend reheating your Philly cheese steak cheesy bread in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Wrap your bread in tin foil before cooking.
