It’s hearty. It’s comforting. It’s less messy than the actual sandwich. I think it’s because you get to use a fork. It’s very dignified eating.

Beef is sliced very thin. I used chateaubriand. I could have probably got it a little thinner but I was lazy.

You just won at dinner.

Philly Cheesesteak Fries

serves 3-4

  • 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen steak fries
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces steak, thinly sliced
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeños (optional)
  • 4 slices provolone cheese, cut into quarters
  • salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 450F.

Arrange frozen fries in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Bake for 22 minutes, making sure to stir half way through for even cooking.

Meanwhile, heat the  oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.  Add onions and bell peppers to the hot oil and season with salt and pepper.  Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Remove veggies from pan and transfer to bowl.

Remove the veggies to a bowl and add another tbsp of oil to the skillet.  Add the steak and jalapeños (if using) to the skillet and season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.  Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the steak is no longer pink. Remove from the heat and place in a bowl.

Remove the fries from the oven. Turn oven down to 350F.  Place half of the fries into the cast iron skillet used to cook the meat and vegetables.  Top the fries evenly steak and vegetables, and nestle the cheese in between toppings.

Place the skillet into the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes.  Serve immediately.

    Let’s see…no bread = taste all the goodness! Looks delicious!! I work with quite a few people who would love this! Do you deliver? 😉

    I love the way that you are so good at giving us such a balance. One day a Kale Salad but another day we get Philly Cheesesteak Fries because that’s what makes life worth living.

    Of every online person I know, your food is my #1 most favorite! My husband is going to love these!

    Also, I am going to encourage you again to do a whole30 and share it with us, because I will be so fascinated with the choices you will make. (This meal could be whole30~leave out the cheese, make homemade fries with fresh potatoes and olive or avocado oil…)

      oh that is the sweetest!
      yes! I’m gonna try it with roasted potatoes/sweet potatoes when I do it!

    “Nestle the cheese in.” Forever and ever amen.

    You can typically buy shaved beef from a local Korean market.

    • Tracy

      Yes you can! I know exactly where to get it in my hometown. Another excuse to visit there.

    The kind of meal you eat once and feel fat for the rest of the week, haha! Looks lovely, I’m already a fan and will try it soon. Thank you guys!

    I made this for dinner tonight, and it was great! My husband likes spice, so I put more jalapeños on his side of the skillet. Thank you for the idea!

  • actorsdiet

    I love this! My husband is from Philly and he’s a vegetarian so he is always shoving fries into his hoagies.

  • Alli

    Making this tonight for my boyfriend as we watch the Baltimore Orioles wild card game! I don’t have a cast iron skillet – will that be a game changer, or can I use a regular frying pan? Do you ever suggesting marinating the beef first, or does the salt & pepper do the trick? Thanks, always loved your blog!
