Ingredients for Making Philly Cheesesteak on a Blackstone
- Steak: My butcher offers thinly sliced steak, which makes things easy. If you are cutting your steak, I recommend putting your steak in the freezer for 30 minutes and then cutting with a sharp knife.
- Salt and pepper: I use two teaspoons of salt per pound of meat, but adjust the seasonings to your liking. You can use seasoned salt if you like.
- Oil: Avocado oil is my go-to for high-heat cooking, but you can use your favorite oil. Olive oil can be used, but I don’t recommend using extra-virgin olive oil. If you want to use butter, I recommend a mixture of butter and high heat oil.
- Bell Peppers: Red, yellow, or green bell peppers work.
- Onions: Use yellow or white onions.
- Garlic: Freshly minced garlic is best when cooking Philly cheesesteak on a griddle, but garlic powder works.
- Cheese: I used provolone slices, but you can use your favorite cheese.
- Rolls: Buy good quality rolls from your bakery, or make your own by forming the dough from my Bread Machine Hamburger Buns into rolls and baking them. (That is what I did!)
Mix it Up
