How To Make Steak Sandwiches
Step by step instructions for making these easy steak sandwiches! Head to the recipe card for full, complete instructions, but we’ll take you through the main points and some tips and tricks!
Cook The Peppers and Onions Until Softened
Don’t try and save time here, cooking the peppers and onions until soft and caramelized makes them so sweet and flavorful!
Season The Steak Generously
Grab your favorite steak seasoning and season the beef generously. Depending on what type of steak seasoning that you add, you might also need a touch of salt and/or pepper.
Sear The Steak Properly
Don’t overcrowd the skillet, grab the biggest one that you have or sear the steak in batches. What you’re looking for is a nice, brown crust on the steak, that’s what makes the best flavor!
Use Sharp Provolone Cheese
Sharp provolone cheese is our go-to for making these Cheesy Steak Sandwiches! The sharp flavor of provolone contrasts perfectly withe the sweet peppers and onions and buttery beef.
Pro Tip: Add as much cheese as you like here!

Other Ways To Eat These Juicy Steak Sandwiches
Often steak recipes can be looked at for being low carb, even these cheesy steak sandwiches! Ditch the bun, obviously, but there’s also other ways to cut down on the carbs in this recipe.
Using less onions is one way to cut down on the carbs for these shaved beef sandwiches. But we love the flavor that sweet onions bring to these sandwiches so don’t cut down too much!
Pile the steak and peppers filling into lettuce wraps, or serve over cauliflower rice. Grabbing a low carb bun or using Cloud Bread is a great option, too!

These Cheesy Steak Sandwiches are so easy to make! Tender, sliced rib eye steak with sweet peppers and onions and melted provolone cheese! Make these steak sandwiches for easy dinners or on game day!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cups diced onions
- 2 cups diced bell peppers
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- Fresh ground black pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup beer or chicken broth
- 2 pounds shaved or sliced steak (see post for types of steak that are best)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon steak seasoning
- 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon salt (depending on how salty your steak seasoning is, start low and then add more if needed)
- 6 slices provolone cheese
- Sub rolls for serving
- Add the olive oil to a large 13 or 14 inch skillet over medium heat. If you don’t have a skillet that large, use the largest size that you have and adjust the cooking times, in a smaller skillet, the vegetables will take longer to cook down.
- Add the onions and peppers to the skillet and cook while stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. You’ll see a nice char on the bottom of your skillet after the 10 minutes have passed and the vegetables will have softened. Add the beer or chicken broth to deglaze the skillet, stir to get all the flavor up from the bottom of the pan. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the liquid evaporates. Remove the onions and peppers from the skillet to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm
- Turn the skillet up to a medium-high heat and then add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet along with the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the steak in a single layer, as much as possible. If you are cooking with a large 13″ or 14″ skillet, you can do this in one batch. However, if you’re using a smaller skillet, make sure to cook the steak in two batches so it sears nicely.
- Add the steak seasoning, salt and pepper. to the steak. Let the beef cook for 3-4 minutes before turning. Only toss once or twice until the steak is seared and cooked through.
- Once the steak is seared, add the peppers and onions back to the skillet and toss together with the steak. Place the sliced provolone over the top of the steak and vegetables, cover and let melt for 2 minutes. Once the cheese has melted, mix the filling together until the cheese is blended in with the steak and vegetables.
- Pile onto sub rolls and serve.
