This is for all the Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich and Instant Pot lovers out there! We love this set and forget Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich recipe. It’s quick and super easy to make and ready in under 25 minutes. It’s an Instant Pot Recipe your entire family will enjoy.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches come in many shapes and sizes, although the authentic Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches are made with rib eye, cheez wiz and a specialty roll called Amoroso rolls, not commonly found outside Philadelphia.

Philly Cheesesteak

For the rest of us, there are easy substitutions that make for one killer, easy Philly Cheese Steak recipe. While we love Cheez wiz, we prefer provolone cheese on our sandwich, which is what we’ve featured in our recipe. Feel free to replace with Cheez wiz or American. We’ve seen some recipes featuring swiss cheese, but we’re not fans. Throws off the traditional flavor balance.

We prefer to use the traditional rib eye, however it’s rather expensive and you can get similar results with top round. When utilizing tougher cuts of meats we like sprinkling meat tenderizer on it a few minutes prior to cooking.

This is also a great way to use up leftover Sous Vide Ribeye, Sous Vide Prime Rib, Smoked Beef Tenderloin, Smoked Prime Rib or Prime Rib.

Philly Cheesesteak

  • Freeze the steak for 30 minutes prior to slicing to make it easier to cut into thin strips.
  • Like mushrooms in your Philly Cheesesteak? Add in a handful of them in when you’re sautéing the pepper/onion mixture.
  • This Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich Recipe can be doubled to make four sandwiches or tripled to make six, depending on your needs.
  • TIP – the liquid left over after cooking makes a great “prime rib au jus” style dip….transfer it to a ramekin and dip your sando right in! It’s the same au jus we use in our Prime Rib Sandwich and Roast Beef Sandwich.

READER Q&A ADDITION: – A few of you have asked about the minimal liquid in this recipe. I’ve never had an issue with it not pressurizing as there is water that escapes both the meat and vegetables. In addition we have some butter and Worcestershire.

For reference, since all models are different and that could make a difference, I’m using the Ultra Pot Duo. If you’re worried about it, or your model does have an issue that mine doesn’t,  feel free to add a 1/2 cup of beef broth before cooking.  It will just mean more Au Jus for you!! Win-win.

    This is super ez and delicious! Thank you. The only thing I noticed is when I change the recipe quantity, although the ingredient amounts change, the written directions do not! So number 9 and 10 still say to add 2 pieces of cheese, mix it in, and then use half the mixture for one sub then repeat with the rest of the mixture. This will not work for any amount over 2 subs! Just take note!
    , so for 5 subs it says use 10 slices of cheese, so u put maybe 5 in, mix it, then add 1 piece of cheese to each individual sub? Otherwise FANTASTIC and super easy THANK YOU!!!

    This was my first instant pot meal and is a staple in our house now! Everyone loves it! I put the meat on the hoagie roll, top with mushrooms (I do those separately since the kids don’t like them), and put in the oven on low broil to melt the cheese and toast the bun!

    If your hoagie rolls fit flat in the bottom of the instant pot, drop some butter in the pot and toast the rolls before you saute the peppers, onions and beef. This works even better with brioche rolls, it gives you that perfect crispy diner-style griddle toasting taste and texture on the bread.

    One of my most favorite instapot recipes!!! I used a top round steak which is a tougher cut of meat so I increased the initial pressure cook time to 9 minutes however after 20 minutes of PR I pressure cooked for another 5 minutes! It was a hit with my family. I toasted the hoagie buns. I did used 1/4 cup of beef bouillon however the author is correct, you don’t need to add extra liquid as there was lots of liquid for Au-Jus!
