These cheese steak sandwiches are a perfect option when you want to get dinner on the table in a hurry. Just a handful of ingredients and you have a filling and down right delicious sandwich to serve in less than 10 minutes.

I added a few tweaks to a traditional cheesesteak sandwich to make them even better. I added mushrooms and my special Garlic Herb Butter that goes amazing with my Air Fried Steak.

Perfect to serve alongside Air Fryer French Fries or a healthy Kale and Broccoli Salad.

Ingredients

  • Garlic Herb Butter
  • Vidalia Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Ribeye Steak
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Hoagie Rolls
  • Salt and Pepper

How To Make Cheese Steak Sandwiches

Thinly slice your onions, mushrooms, and steak against the grain. Set aside.

  • Melt garlic butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and mushrooms and cook until onions have softened, about 5 minutes.

What’s the best steak to use?

I like to use ribeye steak for my sandwiches. It’s full of flavor, requires a short cooking time, and is perfectly tender. If you don’t have ribeye, sirloin will be a good substitute.

What’s the best cheese to use?

For me, the cheese has to be provolone. It has a great sharpness to it that cuts through the other flavors. You can easily swap the cheese to suit your tastes, cheddar or mozzarella will work well.

Can you make these sandwiches ahead of time?

These cheese steaks are best served as soon as they are ready or the steak can get chewy. You can prep all of the ingredients ahead of time if you like and it will take less than 10 minutes to cook the filling up.

Recipe Tips and Notes

  • Feel free to add garlic butter to the hoagie and toast them if you prefer crispier hoagie rolls. I prefer soft hoagie rolls and I never toast them.
  • Take care not to overcook the steak or it can become tough. It just needs a couple of minutes on each side so that it’s browned.
  • I make my own Garlic Herb Butter for this recipe and use it a lot. It’s delicious!
