Easy Cheesy Dips for Game Day
Hot dips are a great addition to any playoff party menu and this cheesesteak dip is no exception! Serve it alongside Baked Buffalo Wings, Crispy Oven Baked Potato Skins, Pigs in a Blanket and a 7 Layer Dip for a perfect party menu your guests will remember!
The most important tip for this recipe is to slightly undercook your steak as it will cook more while the dip bakes and you don’t want it overcooked or chewy!
How to make Hot Cheesy Philly Cheesesteak Dip.
- Season and cook steak, remove and set aside.
- Remember to remove steak once it reaches medium rare temperature of 135˚- 140˚F since it will cook further when it is assembled and baked.
- It is important to allow the steak to rest before cutting, this keeps the meat extra juicy and delicious
- In the same pan that the steak was cooked in, saute onion and green pepper in butter till tender.
- Add the steak, peppers and lots of provolone cheese to the creamy base and top with shredded cheese.
- Bake until golden brown and bubbly
This dip can easily be assembled ahead of time and baked just before serving. Leftovers can be reheated in the oven at 325°F until warm and melted.
What cut of meat is best for Philly Cheesesteak Dip?
The ultimate cut of beef for a Philly Cheesesteak is a ribeye, it really is the king of steaks! I love using ribeye for this cheesesteak dip, but you can also use any steak. Sirloin is flavorful and will work well but you can also leftover steak or even leftover roast beef!
In a pinch? Use deli roast beef, chopped up (or Steakums) for a quick version. Even ground beef with onions and green peppers (like I use in my Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes) would work! Just be sure to keep that beautiful beef, onion and green pepper flavor combination and top it with loads of luscious cheese; you won’t go wrong!
What Goes in a Cheesesteak?
Cheesesteaks have different ingredients depending who you ask so, like most recipes, add what you love! Top it with pepperoncinis, add cheese whiz, chop up some mushrooms, swap the provolone for your own favorite.
You won’t have to call an audible at the line of scrimmage with this Philly Cheesesteak in your playbook! This delicious hot dip is the perfectly executed game play that will make you the big winner this playoff season!

Preheat a cast iron pan to medium high heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper. Sear steak to medium rare, about 3 minutes per side. Set steak aside to rest.

In a bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. Mix until combined with a hand mixer.

Using steak (or leftover steak if you have any) adds the best flavor to this dip. If you’re short on time or would like to make this recipe easier, you can substitute 6oz deli roast beef.
