Speaking of easy and delicious sandwiches, be sure to check out my Sourdough Grilled Cheese. You can also cook that on your Blackstone. Using easy ingredients to make delicious meals is the best.
Vegetable oil - You could also use olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil.
Steak - Any beef steak will work, as long as it's thinly sliced. Ribeye steak would be nice and tender, and a flank steak is an affordable option as well. Thinly sliced steak or shaved ribeye are what you'll commonly see.
Onion - Sliced thinly. Any variety of onion is fine: yellow onion, red onion, Vidalia onion, or white onion.
Mushrooms - Sliced thinly. We normally use white button mushooms but baby bella mushrooms work well too.
Provolone - Use slices for ease.
Hero roll - You can make your own or get at the store.
How to make Blackstone Philly Cheesesteak
In order to make a cheesesteak on a Blackstone griddle, one must first ensure that the griddle is preheated to an appropriate temperature. This can be facilitated by using a thermometer to gauge the heat level before beginning preparation. Once the griddle is heated, thinly-sliced steak should be placed in an even layer across the surface. After allowing for adequate searing time, the steak should be flipped and combined with your favorite toppings.
Step One: Preheat the griddle to medium-high heat.
Step Two: Add the oil and then place on the steak, mushrooms, and onions. Season with black pepper and salt.
Step Three: Place the roll with the cut side down on the flat griddle. Cook for one minute, then flip and cook for an additional minute.
Step Four: Top the steak and vegetables with the cheese.
Step Five: Once cooked, place on the grilled bread. Serve.
We all have our favorite toppings. My husband likes green peppers, mushrooms, and onions but my son prefers just a few onions. Whatever works for you is fine.
Add different veggies - You can add green bell peppers, red bell peppers, or anything else you'd like.
Add cheese whiz - A classic cheesesteak sandwich has some cheese whiz on it, so you can always add some of that at the end.
Season the cheesesteak meat - The best meat can be seasoned however you'd like. Add garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
Use a different cheese - If you're not a fan of provolone cheese, you can use American cheese to top your Blackstone Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. If it is a cheese that takes longer to melt you can cover the sandwich fillings with a dome to speed up the process.
Meats - Make it with chicken or even venison. Our Venison Philly Cheesesteak is amazing.
What is a Blackstone griddle?
A Blackstone griddle is a type of flat top griddle typically found in outdoor settings, consisting of a thick metal plate or two flat grill surfaces which can be heated by propane. This appliance offers an array of culinary possibilities.

Do flat top grills cook evenly?
Not only do they cook well, but they're great to use for larger meals or quick cooking. While heating the grill is nice, the space of a flat-top grill gives so many options to cook meat and other foods easily.
How do I store leftovers of this Blackstone Philly cheesesteak recipe?
For the best texture and taste, let the meat and veggies cool down all the way and then store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
You can also add leftovers to the freezer as well - making it a great option for another meal.
What do I serve with a cheesesteak?
Classic side dishes like french fries, potato chips, and potato salad go well with a steak sandwich. You can also fry up some Blackstone Potatoes at the same time you cook this for a complete meal.
How do I toast buns without burning them?
Cooking the roll on a flat surface on medium heat is a great and easy way to toast bread. Be sure to add butter to the buns for extra flavor.
How do I choose good meat to cook for a Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich?
It's all about the marbling. You want a little bit of marbling in the meat so that it has some fat content to it - and stays moist. The last thing that you want to have happen is to have the meat dry out, making it tough and chewy.
The good thing about this easy sandwich is that adding the cheese on top will help to add moisture back to the meat if you do overcook it at all. You're covered if that happens!
You also need to be aware of the thickness of the meat. It needs to be thin for this sandwich to have the right texture and taste. If the meat is cut too thick, it will be hard to chew and overpower the rest of the flavors.
Have the butcher cut the steak thin or ask for it shaved. You can also tell them that you're making a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, which will give them an idea of how to cut it for you.
