Cooking for 4 people


  • 1 sweet red onion (thinly sliced, optional)
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 jar 15 oz. cheese sauce
  • 4 8 oz. boneless ribeye steaks (thinly sliced*)
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper
  • 4 hoagie rolls or 1 large Italian loaf cut into four sections and split
  • 1 vegetable grilling basket

1 Food Prep

Start by slicing your steak as thinly as possible. To do this more easily, place your steaks in the freezer until they’re firm but not completely frozen. This should take about 20 minutes.

Then, remove your steak from the freezer and immediately begin slicing using a sharp chef’s knife or slicing knife.

Season your sliced steak with kosher salt and ground black pepper then set it aside.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Charcoal Briquets with Mesquite to get a bolder, smokier flavor for your cheesesteak

Method: Two-Zone Method

Temp: 450°F (High Heat)

3 The Cook

  • Empty your cheese sauce into a small saucepan and set it on the grate, directly over the coals. Allow the cheese sauce to warm through, stirring it frequently for 3–4 minutes before moving it to the cooler side of the grate to stay warm.

  • Place a vegetable grill basket on the hotter side of the grate to pre-heat.

  • Place your sliced onions into a small mixing bowl and toss them with canola oil.

  • Add your onions to the grilling basket and allow them to cook for approximately 10 minutes until softened and caramelized. Then, remove your onions from the grilling basket and set them to the side.

  • Add your beef to the grilling basket and cook it for 3–4 minutes, turning frequently until nicely browned and cooked through.

  • Assemble your grilled Philly cheesesteaks by dividing your beef between all of your rolls. Top your cheesesteaks with caramelized onion and cheese sauce and serve immediately.
