Easy Philly Cheese Steak Burgers are amazing homemade gourmet burgers topped with steak, provolone, peppers and onions like the sandwich!
Philly Cheesesteak fans and Cheeseburger lovers will unite over this amazing, juicy, beefy cheesy Burger Recipe! It’s truly the best of two worlds in one delicious All-American Dinner!
When it comes to what’s better, shaved beef smothered in grill-top veggies or a charred ground beef patty with endless toppings, there are always gonna be lots of strong opinions. This amazing, mouthwatering truckstop-meets-gourmet burger might not solve world peace, but it will definitely bridge the gap between the great Cheesesteak vs Cheeseburger divide. It’s beefy, it’s cheesy, and it’s got everything you love from two iconic (sometimes divisive) All-American favorites.
You’ll start by preparing a classic cheesesteak filling of green bell peppers, onions, and shaved steak seared on a grill top until just seared and veggies are still crisp tender. Don’t worry, the cheese is coming at the end, but first you need to make savory burger patties using a simple seasoning blend of salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. The burgers are grilled and then comes the melty provolone cheese. It’s all packed into a tender, buttery brioche bun with a little mayo and some toppings like lettuce and tomato, but only if you feel like it.
That’s the thing people love, and love to debate, about Philly Cheesesteaks – the ability to choose what toppings makes them best, whether that’s Cheez-Wiz, mushrooms, blue cheese, veggies, hot peppers, or any number of possibilities. Just like the OG sammie, these burgers are full of possibilities and you can load them up or just make them “wit or wit-out” onions – it’s up to you!
