Because who doesn’t love beef and cheese and peppers and onions…

Either piled onto a soft sub roll or eaten as is if you’re looking for a low carb recipe, this Quick Philly Cheesesteak Recipe is a total knock out. Dinner in less than 30, all fresh ingredients and a killer flavor.

What Kind Of Beef Do You Use For This Philly Cheesesteak Recipe?

Here’s our secret to making this recipe so quick and still so full of flavor, you’ll think it’s been cooking all day long. Grab some shaved beef right in your butcher department! Shaved beef is steak that is already sliced super thin on a meat slicer and packed up all nice for you.

This way you don’t have to worry about slicing a steak really thin, you can just skip that step and go right to the skillet. AND because this shaved beef is cut so thin, it cooks up in no time at all.

Quick and effective, and in my opinion, the best type of beef for this Quick Philly Cheesesteak Recipe.

Once the peppers and onions cook down and the beef browns, this skillet recipe gets a melted blanket of cheese on top that is pretty drool-worthy.

If you’re not a fan of provolone cheese you can definitely use sliced or grated mozzarella cheese. American cheese slices would also be amazing…that’s on my list to try next!

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 11 1/4 pounds shaved beef
  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into strips
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic

  • 2 tablespoons marsala wine
  • 2 teaspoons Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 slices provolone or mozzarella cheese about (1/4 pound)
  • 4 sub rolls (if serving as a sandwich)


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, then add the pepper and onion strips. Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes until the peppers and onions have softened. Add the salt and the chopped garlic, stir and cook 5 minutes more, then remove to a bowl and cover with foil.
  2. Wipe out the skillet with paper towels if necessary, then add the other 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and the shaved beef. Pull the beef apart to separate the layers and cook until brown, about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour the marsala wine into the pan to deglaze and stir until the wine is evaporated.
  4. Season the beef with pepper, Montreal Steak Seasoning and Worcestershire sauce, stir to combine.
  5. Add the peppers and onions back to the skillet, stirring to combine with the beef.
  6. Lay the provolone cheese on top of the beef and peppers, covering the top as much as possible. Turn the heat down to low, then add the cover to the skillet to melt the cheese.
  7. Once the cheese has melted, serve on sub rolls or eat as is for a low carb dinner!
