Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir beef until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add onions and green bell peppers to beef; cook and stir until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour barbeque sauce over beef mixture and simmer until sauce is slightly reduced, about 10 minutes.

  • Lay 4 tortillas on a baking sheet and top each with beef mixture and Cheddar cheese. Top each Cheddar cheese layer with a tortilla.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes; flip the quesadillas and cook until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

Beef round can be substituted for the beef sirloin.

I used this recipe for method only essentially and it worked wonderfully. It was very convenient to put all on a large baking sheet flip once and be done with it. My quesadillas did not include green peppers barbecue sauce or Cheddar cheese. Rather I used thinly sliced onion sliced mushrooms and shredded Provolone cheese on smaller tortillas. I seasoned my shaved steak with a little of Emeril's BAM seasoning and garlic powder. After cutting the quesadillas into wedges I served them with horseradish cream sauce and honey mustard on the side. WOW! Read More

I made serious quick changes. I used frozen peppers and onions from the supermarket freezer section and steak um. Talk about quick and delicious! Minimal clean up. Enjoy! I also served it with salted sour cream. Just a few dashes on dollop. Oh and I didn't use BBQ sauce because that's not true Philly and you need two baking sheets if you don't own a baking sheet twenty inches wide like me. Read More

Delicious. I used provolone and Monterrey jack instead of cheddar. I didn't use any BBQ sauce. I marinated the steak with olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and steak seasoning for a few hours . Read More

I made a lot of alterations but it's a great concept. Thank you for the idea. I had left over steak and didn't know what to do with it until I found this recipe. I sautéed onion red and green pepper and mushrooms. Add left over steak sliced into thin strips. A dash of hot sauce and a dash of bbq sauce since I didn't have steak sauce. Let sit at a simmer. Sprayed pam on foiled sheet put down a shell sprinkled cheddar added fill sprinkle more cheddar place top layer of shell brushed with olive oil. Baked 425 for 8 min flip brush olive oil bake 5 min. Used a pizza cutter to slice. Delish! Read More

This was delicious and did not take too long to make. It seemed more barbecue though than Philly cheesesteak. Read More

Skip the barbecue sauce. I m from Philadelphia. A Philly cheesesteak doesn t have barbecue sauce. I also recommend yellow American cheese instead of provolone. Read More

Followed other suggestions and did not use BBQ Sauce. Added about a table spoon of Worcestershire Sauce and a sprinkle of Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Turned out really good. Did it both with Shredded Cheddar and Provolone Slices. Read More

I added banana peppers and used provolone instead of cheddar. We really liked it. I'm not a fan of mushrooms but I think that would be a good addition as well. Read More

Wanted to add some moisture to the mix, so after the meat and veggies were ready, I put all that back into the pan and added a bag of fajita sauce to it, let it reduce about half, then followed the rest of the recipe as written. It was very good! Read More
