Philly Cheese Steak Dip

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.

What Kind of Steak To Use?

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. If you are looking to make a more economical dip, ground beef will work just fine.

Philly Cheese Steak Dip

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.

Creamy Dip Base

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.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Use red bell pepper in place of green.
  • Add mushrooms. Cook them with the onions and peppers.
  • Use ground beef or deli roast beef in place of rib-eye.
  • Monterey Jack cheese can be used in place of mozzarella or try Pepper Jack for a little kick.
  • Make it low carb. The dip itself is already low carb. Serve it with carrot sticks or celery sticks for an amazing low carb gameday dip.
  • Make it spicy. Add half a teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes to the dip.

Make Ahead

This dip can be prepped and assembled up to 12 hours in advance. Huge timesaver if you are making it for a party. Pop it in the oven just before your guests arrive.

    I used the minute steaks chopped up and it was delish. I am going to try this in pastry dough (crescent rolls) as my family loved it. I did eliminate the peppers as several people do not like them. Will make again.
