Spice Up Your Day with a Sweet and Spicy Jalapeno Philly Cheesesteak

Hey there! I’ve always loved burgers and hot dogs, but there’s something special about a Philly Cheesesteak. The juicy beef, the caramelized onions, the melted cheese, and the crusty roll all come together to create a sandwich that’s hard to resist. So, I decided to create my own version of this classic sandwich with a sweet and spicy twist.

I have to admit, I’ve had some failed attempts at making Philly Cheesesteaks in the past. The beef was overcooked or under-seasoned, the onions were burned, and the cheese was either too little or too much. But, I never gave up on perfecting this recipe. I experimented with different types of cheese, added new ingredients like jalapenos and honey, and adjusted the cooking time and temperature until I found the perfect combination.

Now, I’m proud to share my Sweet and Spicy Jalapeno Philly Cheesesteak recipe with you. This sandwich is bursting with flavor and texture, with the sweetness of the honey and the heat of the jalapenos complementing the savory beef and melted cheese. And, it’s easy to make, so you can enjoy it anytime.

When I think of Philly Cheesesteaks, I’m transported back to my college days, when my friends and I would hit up the local sandwich shop for a late-night snack. We’d sit outside on the curb, devouring our cheesesteaks and talking about life. Those memories are some of my favorite, and I hope that this recipe can help create some new memories for you and your loved ones.

So, grab some beef, onions, cheese, and a roll, and let’s get cooking!

Thinly sliced ribeye beef – the key to a perfect Philly Cheesesteak!

The Ingredients

For one serving of Sweet and Spicy Jalapeno Philly Cheesesteak.

  • 4 oz. thinly sliced ribeye or sirloin beef
  • 1/2 large onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 small hoagie roll
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Adjust the amount of jalapeno pepper to your preferred level of spiciness.

The Directions

  1. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. While the skillet is heating up, place the thinly sliced beef on a cutting board and pat it dry with paper towels.
  3. Season the beef with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Once the skillet is hot, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet.
  5. Add the seasoned beef to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until it’s browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness.
  6. Use tongs to transfer the cooked beef to a clean plate and cover it with aluminum foil to keep it warm.
  7. Add the sliced onions to the same skillet and sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  8. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of hot sauce to the skillet and stir to combine.
  9. Return the cooked beef to the skillet and stir to combine with the onions, honey, and hot sauce.
  10. Turn off the heat and place 2 slices of provolone cheese on top of the beef and onions, letting it melt.
  11. While the cheese is melting, toast the hoagie roll in a toaster or on a griddle until it’s warm and slightly crispy.
  12. Once the cheese is melted, use a spatula to transfer the beef, onions, and melted cheese onto the toasted hoagie roll.
  13. Top with sliced jalapeno peppers and serve immediately.
