If you’re a fan of Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches, you are not going to be able to get enough of this dip. It’s so cheesy, creamy, and warm and loaded with flavorful chunks of steak, onions, and peppers. Serve it with toasted baguette, tortilla chips, or even pita chips and you have one heck of a game day snack or party appetizer.
For the steak I used ribeye steak because it is my favorite. But you could use strip steak, or sirloin or even buy some sliced roast beef from the deli if you want to skip the step of cooking the steak. The frozen, thin-sliced steak is an option too.
I cook the steak in olive oil and Challenge butter and then use the same pan plus a touch more butter to cook the onions and green bell peppers. I love the flavor butter gives steak and sauteed vegetables.
For the creaminess of the dip, I use Challenge cream cheese with a little mayonnaise mixed in. You could use sour cream instead of the mayo if you wanted to.
I love to use Challenge butter and cream cheese in my cooking and I always have my refrigerator stocked with them. They are super high quality products that really make all the difference in your cooking. Challenge Dairy products are made from fresh, pure ingredients. No additives, hormones, or fillers are used.
Next time you need a game day snack, try some Philly Cheese Steak Dip. It is a meat and cheese lover’s dream!
