Philly Cheese Steak Dip
We’re quickly making our way into fall, which means it’s almost officially party season! Philly Cheese Steak Dip is the creamiest, meatiest, most melt-in-your-mouth dip you’ll ever make. It has three different kinds of cheese, with the top layer being savory provolone to top off your Philly cheese steak flavor. The only downfall is that you’ll have to share it!
How do you make Philly cheese steak dip?
I love Philly cheese steak dip more than any other dip I’ve made. Seriously, it has everything I’m looking for in a good dip recipe. It also disappears within minutes of putting it out for a party, which is how you know it’s a winner!
I also love that this Philly cheese steak dip is totally easy to make. Here’s how you do it:
- Saute the poblano peppers and onions with 1 tbsp butter until translucent. Then throw in steak, garlic powder, pepper, and cook until almost done.
- Throw in the rest of the butter and cream cheese, then stir until melted. Then stir in sour cream and mozzarella.
- Flatten with a spoon, top with provolone cheese. Then bake until melted and golden brown.
- Cool slightly, and enjoy with tortilla chips!
What kind of cheese can you use in cheesesteak dip?
For this cheesesteak dip I’ve used mozzarella, cream cheese, and provolone. You can use other types of cheese in this dip, though. Cheddar, pepper jack, and muenster would do really well. In fact, anything spicy would be great!
- Don’t leave the cream cheese out! The cream cheese can be subbed with neufchatel cheese, because it’s basically the same thing. But I wouldn’t leave out this step, because it does a lot to add the rich and creamy texture to the dish.
- Grate your own cheese. Shredded cheeses sometimes have ingredients that keep the cheese from sticking together, so it can make it harder to get the cheese to melt. If you have a food processor, you can easily grate a block of cheese in just a few seconds.
- Mozzarella gives you stretchy cheese. If you want your guests to experience the stretchy, gooey cheese feel from this cheesesteak dip, make sure you use a great melting cheese like mozzarella.
What type of steak is Philly cheese steak meat?
Philly cheese steak meat is easy to find at your local grocery store. Typically, you want to use a leaner cut of strip steak or flank steak. You can also use ribeye or top sirloin, but these can be a little more expensive. For this recipe, I used NY Strip steak, because that’s what was on sale this week. Hey, I’m not made of money, I can’t spend everything on Philly cheese steak meat! Even though it’s tempting…
The most important thing is that you cut the meat very thin before you start cooking. That’s what’s going to give you the Philly cheese steak meat feel!

Philly Cheese Steak Dip is steak, peppers, and onions mixed with creamy cheese and garlic. Then topped with melted provolone and served with crispy tortilla chips. It's creamy, cheesy, and the perfect dip to bring to a party!
- 16 oz sour cream
- 8 tbsp unsalted butter
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 6 slices provolone cheese
- 2 medium poblano peppers diced, seeds removed
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella
- 1 1/2 lb flank steak sliced thin, then into 1-inch pieces
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 medium onion diced
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 375F.
In a medium dutch oven, add 1 tbsp butter, onion, and poblano peppers. Cook until onion is caramelized, about 5 minutes. Add steak, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir until cooked through, about 5 more minutes.
Add remaining butter, cream cheese, mozzarella, and sour cream. Stir until everything is melted together.
Place provolone evenly on top of dip and move to oven. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until provolone is melted and golden brown on top.
- If you want a really good golden brown color on top, melt the provolone in the oven, then turn on the broiler for 1-2 minutes. Watch it closely, the broiler can burn things really quickly!
