Philly Beef-Stuffed Sandwich

This Philly Cheese Steak recipe is easy but it looks like you took a bit of prepare time. It is delicious and great to serve to a small group without any mess. It seems every time I've served it that there's not a bite left and they all enjoy this sandwich.

1 c. bell pepper, chopped (can use

1/2. each green & red bell pepper)

3/4 c. onion, chopped

1 T. vegetable oil or Olive oil

2 cloves garlic (purchased chopped garlic in oil equivalent to 2 cloves)

1 tsp. dried oregano leaves divided in half

2 pkgs.(10 oz.) refrigerator pizza crust

8 oz. thinly sliced deli roast beef (approximately 10 slices)

8 oz. sliced mild Cheddar or American Cheese (we used grated Cheddar)

1 egg white, lightly beaten

1 T. water

Preheat oven 400°

Chop bell pepper and onion. In 10” frying pan heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add garlic, bell pepper, onion and ½ t. oregano leaves. Cook, stirring frequently 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from heat and set aside.

Unroll 1 pizza crust onto lightly floured surface. Lightly roll out crust to 12”x 9” rectangle being careful not to roll too thin or tear hole in dough. Cover with half the beef (5 slices), cheese ( 4-5 slices down middle) and vegetable mixture to within ½” of edges of dough. Starting at longest side of rectangle, roll dough jellyroll fashion pressing seam together to seal. Repeat with remaining crust & filling ingredients. Place rolls, seam sides down, on baking stone. Join ends of rolls together to form 1 large ring, press ends together to seal. In small bowl combine egg white and water and brush on dough. Sprinkle with remaining ½ t. oregano.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Cut into 2 inch wedges.

Yield: Approximately 12 servings, 3 wedges per serving.

I imagine your family and friends will also be happy with this Philly cheese steak recipe.

Philly Wrap


Samuel Jackson

A man seldom thinks with more earnestness of anything than he does of his dinner.

Philly Cheese Wrap for Smaller Crowd

This is a smaller version of the above recipe using large Crescent Rolls with exactly 1/2 of the other ingredients. They are delicious and easy to make. I actually discovered this recipe accidentally when I bought crescent rolls instead of pizza crust, but we liked them very well and they were so easy to make.


  • 1/2 cup bell pepper, chopped ( can substitute red or yellow pepper)
  • 1/3+ a little more chopped onion
  • 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1can of refrigerated crescent rolls ( 6 rolls)
  • 4 oz. thinly sliced deli roast beef (about 6 slices)
  • 4 oz American or Cheddar cheese sliced or you can use grated

Pre-heat oven to 350°


  1. Chop onions and pepper into small pieces and mince garlic.
  2. Add olive oil to small frying pan and cook onion-pepper ingredient until crisp tender, stirring frequently for 3-4 minutes. Add oregano.
  3. Unroll crescent into the six triangles.
  4. Place roast beef on dough first, cutting it to fit triangle and it can overlap as necessary.
  5. Place cheese slice on roast beef the same way.
  6. Sprinkle the onion-pepper mixture along the length of the roll.
  7. Start at the larger end and begin to roll the wrap until completed.
  8. You can sprinkle a little oregano on top for a more attractive look.

Yield: 6 servings or at my house 4 servings.

It's only 4pm here and you've just made me hungry; guess I'll have to watch something about Obama to kill my appetite so I can wait until dinner to eat!

When my kids were still home we used to make many combo steak sandwiches with Steak Ums. They were quick and yummy.

Pamela, I want to build this up to serve many and so is it possible do you think to form it into long loaves as opposed to a circle? I realize far more ingredients will be needed, but this would be great for a church lunch! I'm gettin' hungry, so I'm headin' for the stove. Food Break!

What the heck??? I just ate and now I'm hungry again! Awesome recipe, Pamela. Whenever I visit my cousin in South Philly, we both go out for cheese steaks before my car even gets cold! Bookmarked!

Nancy, I hope you enjoy the recipe.

Unchained Grace, you can make in any shape you desire but it would take a lot to feed a whole church because I have found people tend to overeat and keep coming back for more.

eovery, It's not too difficult and you might enjoy it.

dohn, Yes, I've been to the Philly cheese steak places in Philly and they are so good. I think you would like this recipe.

Thank you all for your comments. Enjoy!

I love Philly Cheese... I use provolone or swiss myself... I even buy a large beef tenderloin and cut up about 15 Filet Mingnon steaks, a decent roast, and the rest goes to the Philly Cheesesteak sandwhiches. This recipe actually reminds me of the Taco rings my wife makes... Very delicious... I am going to have to make one of these... Now, I am hungry.... Oh... And enjoy the Ad clicks... Maybe I'll find something to buy.

Hanna, The only tricky part of this recipe is rolling up the dough evenly and that isn't too hard. You would probably like the result.

My brother loves philly cheese steak, while talking about it I thought of this recipe and had to come get it to impress and feed the crowd tonight, It'll be a great pre- Memorial Day Feast tonight. I have bags of pizza dough made fresh from a deli near by that I think will be perfect. Thanks and Peace :)
