I LOVE Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. When my husband and I lived down in Pleasant Grove, Utah, we use to go over to the DP Cheesesteaks in American Fork all the time.
I would always get the cream cheese steak sandwiches and Matt would always get the one with bleu cheese on it. I literally was obsessed, but also knew I needed to limit my visits because I’m pretty sure cheesesteaks aren’t light on calories. Especially when part of the sandwich’s name is cream cheese. MMMM.
Cheesesteak and Cream Cheese: The Perfect Combo
I wanted to come up with a cheesesteak sandwiches recipe that would be quick and easy to make at home and yet still so delicious. AND I’m pretty sure I nailed it. This recipe I used ground beef instead of steak, and yet I still was in love.
I wanted to give the sandwich a tiny bit of a kick so I used the pepper jack cheese instead of provolone and wanted it to be extra creamy so I threw in a block of cream cheese :). And that is how I came up with this pepper jack and cream cheesesteak sandwich (with beef).
Creamy Cheesesteak Sandwiches with Beef
My husband literally just ate his entire beef hoagie while I was writing this up and wanted to go back for seconds, but then he decided to control himself, which is HARD to do with this recipe.
I think he realizes the leftovers will be just as good, so why not extend the life of this pepper jack and cream cheesesteak sandwich experience just a little longer? 🙂
