Can I just tell you how good this Philly cheesesteak dip is?? It’s not the most beautiful dish, but what it lacks in appearance it makes up for in flavor with steak, peppers and onions in a creamy cheesy base. I can make a whole meal out of this dip.

How do you make Philly cheesesteak dip?

The first step to making this dip is to cook up your steak, peppers and onions. I used finely diced rib eye steak which is the traditional choice. Other great options are flank steak, ground beef or even deli style roast beef.

The meat and veggies get mixed up with cream cheese, sour cream and provolone cheese before the whole thing goes into the oven to bake to melted, bubbly perfection.

Tips for Philly cheesesteak dip

  • It’s important to cut your meat and veggies small so that they’ll be easy to scoop up with bread or whatever other dippers you choose.
  • Not a provolone fan? Try white cheddar or white American cheese instead.
  • This dip can be prepared in advance and then stored in the fridge until you’re ready to bake it.
  • You can add other ingredients to this dip to customize it to your tastes, more great options are sauteed mushrooms or bacon bits.

After your dip comes out of the oven, it’s time to serve it up with some dippers and enjoy! I typically serve this dip with baguette chips, also known as crostini, which are sold in the deli section of most grocery stores. Other options are baguette slices, potato chips, pretzel chips, or fresh vegetables.

Philly cheesesteak dip is perfect for game day, parties and family gatherings. If you serve it with vegetables, it’s a great choice for those following low carb or keto diets. The flavors on this one just can’t be beat!

    I followed this recipe to the T with double the ingredients to feed up to 50 people. I won the cooking contest at work! Everyone loved it, and the baguette chips were a nice touch! I can’t wait to make this again for parties, especially during the holidays! Thank you so much!

  2. Love the Philly cheesestake dip! I used Colby Jack cheese since we did not have provolone cheese. Thought I had mushrooms but did not. It was still great dip. I highly recommend it. We used corn Tortilla chips to dip. Mmmm!
