Traditional Cheesesteak vs. Sliders

The classic cheesesteak sandwich is a staple in Philly cuisine, known for its thin slices of beef, melted cheese, and crispy hoagie roll. This cheesesteak slider recipe puts a fun spin on the traditional sandwich by using smaller slider buns and slicing the beef to the same thinness. The result is a tender and flavorful bite that packs all the deliciousness of the original sandwich into a convenient, hand-held size.

Cheese Options

The original Philly Cheesesteak didn’t even have any cheese! Later they added Provolone, and now you typically get a choice of Cheese Whiz, American, and sliced Provolone cheese.


We love the added flavor of onions to a Philly Cheesesteak. However, authentic Cheesesteaks are served ‘wit onions’ or wit-out onions’, so the choice is up to you!

Beef Options

For the best results, choose a cut of beef such as ribeye, tri-tip, chuck roast, sirloin, tenderloin, or anything from the round, and make sure to cut against the grain and trim off any sinew pieces to ensure the meat is not chewy.

Popular Add-Ins

One of the best things about cheesesteak sliders is the variety of toppings you can add to suit your taste. Some popular options include:

  • Sautéed bell peppers (sliced or diced)
  • Sautéed sliced mushrooms
  • Pickled jalapeno slices
  • Hot cherry peppers
  • Long hot peppers
  • Sweet peppers
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Marinara + Toasted bun
  • Mayo
  • Mustard
  • Tobasco sauce

Cheesesteak Slider Tips

  • To bring these sliders up a notch, consider adding in a smear of cream cheese. Soften the cream cheese by popping it into the microwave for 20 seconds.
  • Cut the beef against the grain and trim off any sinew pieces to ensure the meat is not chewy.
