This is a very filling sandwich, great to make ahead of time and keep warm in the oven for a Superbowl party or any other time. But you better like cheese!

  • Place the sliced beef in the pan, and fry until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and stir in the cream cheese and Worcestershire sauce, cooking and stirring until the beef is well coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Meanwhile, preheat your oven's broiler.

  • Place beef mixture onto bottom half of the baguette, then cover the beef with the onion mixture. Place Swiss cheese over the onion mixture. Place open sandwich under a hot broiler until the cheese is melted. Place top of baguette onto the toppings, and serve.

Despite the roaring laughter the Phillys are pealing off right now I liked this for a steak sandwich. shrugs I decided to marinate my top round first from previous experience... if you marinate even a short time in lemon or lime juice plus your worcestershire you won't believe the difference in texture of meat. I cooked the meat whole rested then sliced and added back to the pan with the onions and stuff. I've made twice and will make again. Read More

French baguette? Swiss cheese? What kind of Philly cheesesteak is THAT?! A REAL Philly steak is on a soft-crust long roll oozing with either melted American or Cheez Whiz. And believe me that makes a huge difference. While this so-called "cheesesteak" is not bad I suggest a trip down to 9th and Passyunk for a Pat's Steak --- a real taste of Philly. Read More

I can hear the GASP coming...but here goes....why does every steak sandwich need to be a "Philly" steak??? I did cut back on the cream cheese...added more garlic for taste. This sandwich was very good...I will fix it again for my family. Read More

This is absolutely the best sandwich I have ever made or eaten! What is wrong with you people who rate it low simply based on what it is named?! Delicious in every sense of the word! I used left over rare steak from an earlier barbecue sliced thin and piled high in fresh soft panini buns...yummy! Philly or no Philly! Rock on Jeremy! Read More

Being from the ATL I guess I'm not sensitive to Philly's claim on the steak sandwich. So with that being said... Maybe Jeremy needs to drop the "Philly" part. But the "Jeremy's Steak and Cheese" sandwich was pretty darn good. My family loved it. We did add the following spices (we like things intense at our house)... additional black pepper paprika chili powder onion powder garlic powder dried thyme dried basil. Thanks Jeremy for your Steak & Chesse sandwich recipe. Read More

I loved this recipe! Although I did omit the mushrooms red onion and cream cheese. I think this is awesome for those of us that don't live in Philly! It's good enough for me if you don't like it then post your own:) Thanks Jeremy! Read More

I found that using provolone works well too when you have someone who doesn't like swiss. It really does make a good change! Read More

This looked really good but I didn't have all the ingredients so I had to substitute. Instead of cream cheese I used 5 wedges of the Laughing Cow garlic and herb cheese and eliminated the garlic. I used Mozzarella instead of Swiss and it still came out great. Love this sandwich! Read More

hey - It can be called Philly because the recipe calls for Philadelphia Cream Cheese right? Anyways I thought this was really tasty. Instead of mushrooms I used green peppers. And I "eyeballed" the measurements. Really easy too. Thanks for sharing! Read More
