Philly Cheesesteak Sliders

Active Time: 20 minutes   |   Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes   |   Serves 8 sliders

  • 1 pound top sirloin or boneless ribeye
  • 2 yellow onions
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 small slider buns
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 thin round slices provolone cheese, cut in half

Place the meat in the freezer and freeze until firm around the edges but with a little give in the center, 30 to 40 minutes (this makes slicing easier).

Thinly slice the onions and bell pepper. In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and stir to coat in the oil. Cover with a tight fitting lid and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and remove the lid. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the onions turn a light golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes more. Add the bell pepper and ½ teaspoon of the salt and cook, stirring often, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Take the meat out of the freezer and slice it as thinly as you can against the grain.

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and stir it around to flavor the oil; remove and reserve the garlic. Add half of the meat and spread it into a single layer. Season with ⅛ teaspoon of the salt and ⅛ teaspoon of the pepper. Let cook for 1 minute undisturbed, then quickly stir to cook the raw spots. Now let cook, stirring once or twice with a metal spatula, until the meat is crisped and browned at the edges, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining oil, garlic, meat, salt, and pepper.

Adjust the oven rack to about 6 inches from the top. Heat the broiler.

Split the buns and place them, cut-side up, on a sheet pan. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes, until golden brown. Butter the buns. Remove the top halves to a plate.

Dividing evenly, pile the meat and the onion-pepper mixture onto the bottom buns. Fold each half of cheese over and lay it over the filling to just cover. Broil for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Add the top buns. Return the sliders to the oven to reheat right before serving.
