Philly Cheesesteak Casserole Recipe @pinch

If you don't have time to make a Philly cheesesteak from scratch but crave its flavors, this casserole is for you. It's easy to make and tastes amazing. The thinly sliced beef is tender and juicy. Sweet caramelized onions and roasted peppers add a lot of flavor and texture. It's filled with gooey melted cheese, just like the sandwich. Once baked, the crescent dough is flaky and buttery. It's a nice crust for the quick and easy casserole. My son asked me to try and come up with a casserole recipe for a Philly cheesesteak because that is one of his favorite sandwiches. I had told him I was running out of new ideas for Casserole Wednesday for his family. If you don't know, I have the most amazing daughter-in-law who loves when I send over a meal on Wednesdays. Since I came up with a White Castle casserole, how hard could it be? This became the favorite. If you're not big on peppers, omit them. Don't care for onions, use onion powder. Try as written the first time and then adjust.

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Casseroles Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 2 pound(s) thinly sliced beef
  • marbled is best
  • I used round steak
  • 2-3 medium thinly sliced sweet onions
  • about 5 cups if onion person
  • 2 medium roasted or grilled red
  • yellow or orange peppers
  • 4 cup(s) shredded mozzarella/provolone cheese
  • 2 tube(s) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 4 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 1-2 tablespoon(s) house seasoning
  • 3/4 cup(s) sea salt
  • 1/4 cup(s) restaurant pepper
  • 1/4 cup(s) garlic powder
Intructions :
  • Thinly slice the onions as thin as you can and saute in melted butter until lightly caramelized. Remember
  • low and slow. This will take about 32-45 minutes.
  • Thinly slice the roasted peppers. To easily roast peppers
  • drizzle olive oil and bake in a 350 F oven for 20 minutes. Then peel. You can also char the peppers on the stovetop, cool and peel.
  • Thinly slice beef. Quickly brown in a little oil just like you were stir-frying.
  • Take rolls out of the tube and either stretch them out or roll them out with a rolling pin until they fix easily into a 9x13 or so lightly greased pan. Sprinkle some cheese on the bottom (almost half).
  • Combine meat
  • onions
  • and peppers (if using) and spread in the pan. Top with remaining cheese. Add house seasoning.
  • Roll out the second tube of crescent rolls until thin and cover the top of the casserole. Use a little melted butter and spread over the top of the casserole.
  • Bake at 350 F for 40-45 minutes.
  • House seasoning from Paula Deen is a staple in my family. Our recipe differs a little using 3/4 c sea salt
  • 1/4 c restaurant pepper (which is a little coarser)
  • and 1/4 c garlic powder. We add this to everything.
