Meat, veggies, bread, and cheese all cooked in your air fryer? Yes, please. This dish is simple but, very filling. Besides, anything that has bread and cheese in it is a win as far as I’m concerned. Philly Cheesesteak has never been better than when I cooked it in the air fryer.

What I’m saying is that, if you already loved this meal before, you’ll love it even more once you try it my way.

Philly Cheesesteak is super easy to make in the air fryer which only makes me love it even.

When you cook this recipe without the air fryer, there are a lot more steps before you have the finished dish.

However, with the air fryer, you take out all those extra cooking steps but end up with an even better outcome–funny how that works.

Are Philly Cheesesteaks Keto?

All you have to do is eat these without the sub rolls, and hey presto! Keto Dinner from your air fryer! The meat, veggies, and cheese are so flavorful that I actually prefer them without the bread.

You can always wrap them in lettuce but you don’t need to do any of that.

Simply chow down on the keto deliciousness of the filling, and enjoy your meal.

What Kind Of Meat Is Used For Philly Cheesesteak?

When making a traditional Philly Cheesesteak, you would want to use thinly sliced ribeye. That’s what I used in this recipe. But depending on what your budget is, you may opt for a cheaper cut of meat, such as flank steak or skirt steak.

Just remember that each cut of meat will have a different flavor profile depending on where it is cut from.

How To Make A Philly Cheesesteak In Your Air Fryer

  1. Slice the meat as thinly as you can. In a medium bowl, toss the meat with the Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, toss the onion and pepper slices with the oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Place the meat and vegetables in the air fryer basket.
  3. Set the air fryer to 400°F. and cook for 15 minutes, tossing once or twice until the meat and vegetables are cooked through.
  4. Remove the meat and vegetables, cover, and set aside.
  5. Spread the insides of the rolls with the butter. Place the rolls in the air fryer basket, top sides down, for 3 minute or until lightly toasted. Remove the rolls from the basket and set aside. You can choose to skip this step.
  6. Divide the meat and vegetables between the two rolls. Top with peppers and onion. Top each with a slice of cheese. Heat for 2 minutes or until the cheese melts. Serve immediately.

What Is The Best Cheese for Philly Cheese Steaks?

I’m not one to tell you how to live your life. Especially when it comes to cheese. It’s all pretty delicious, in my opinion. But if you’re a traditionalist, you’ll probably want to use white American or provolone cheese.

But if you want to whip out the Cheez Whiz, I’m here for that too. Just keep in mind that it’s already melty, so skip the melting step and add room temperature cheese to the warm meat for the perfect result.

Tips And Tricks For Making The Best Philly Cheesesteak

  • If you have trouble slicing the meat thinly, you may choose to freeze the meat for 30 minutes. Me, I’m usually in too much of a hurry to do that. If you have a meat slicer, that will do the trick. (Click here to watch my review of the Chef’s Choice Meat Slicer)
  • If not, ensuring your knife is kept sharpened will help with the thin slicing without having to use any freezing or special methods.
  • I like to use ribeye steak for this Philly Cheesesteak recipe. However, if need be, you can use flank steak, or another steak you have on hand.
  • Just remember, the flavor may not be the same. Each cut of steak has varying qualities, so be sure that you’re aware of the differences and are okay with the variances in the cut. It has the potential to change the consistency and flavor of the recipe.
  • For a low carb option simply omit the hoagie rolls. The Meat, cheese, and veggies are deliciously keto, and a serving clocks in at 4 gms of carbs!

What Goes With Philly Cheesesteak?

They’re often served with the standard sandwich sides, such as fries, chips, and such. Basically, if you’d serve it with a hot sandwich or a burger, it would go well with a Philly Cheesesteak.

  • You can make this into a complete meal by adding these delicious Rosemary Roasted Potatoes or Air Fryer Green Beans into the mix. They’re both delightful side dishes you can make in just 15 minutes in your air fryer!
  • Why not wash it all down with a cold glass of Instant Pot Iced Tea? It’s super easy to make thanks to your Instant Pot.
