Cheese Steak Crescent Braid Recipe

This Cheese Steak Crescent Braid was so easy to make and tastes amazing. If you are looking for a simple and delicious dinner recipe, I highly recommend this one.

Just the thought of steak makes my mouth water.  We grilled some steak this week and with the leftovers I made these amazing Cheese Steak Crescent Braids.

They were a huge hit. Even my little ones loved them. My husband said this is one of my best recipes yet, and they were so simple to make, and tasted absolutely amazing. If you are looking for a simple and quick dinner recipe, this one is for you.

It was so simple to throw together, and perfect for steak leftovers, or when you need to use some things in your fridge before they go bad.

We will definitely be adding this to our regular dinner recipes list. It was so tasty.

could i make this recipe using pizza dough instead of crescent dough?

I have only made this recipe using crescent dough. However, you could switch it up and use what you have on hand, or try it with bread dough (you could even make your own dough as well, if you prefer it).

The pizza dough won’t be as flakey as the crescent dough, but it would still work just as well and taste delicious.

I love it with the crescent dough, but again, pizza dough would work just as well.

make other flavors:

If you do have picky eaters that don’t love onions and peppers, you can also make this recipe using other meats and vegetables.

It’s like mini pizza, but better. You could add any of your favorite pizza toppings, or even add your favorite toppings to the already delicious, Philly Cheesesteak Stromboli.

It’s fast, quick, simple and delicious. Here are a few of our favorites to add:

  • sausage
  • pepperonis
  • bacon
  • banana peppers
  • olives
  • jalapeños (my husband adds these for a little kick)
  • red onion
  • cilantro
  • mushrooms
  • artichokes

Really any favorite pizza topping would be delicious in these. They are pretty versatile, and it’s a fun recipe to get the kids involved with.

We also find they are more likely to eat it, if they get to help make it, because they are proud of their work.

  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 6 ounces steak (cooked and diced) 
  • 1 red bell pepper (diced)
  • 6 green onions (diced)
  • 1 (10 ounce) container refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg (beaten)


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a skillet, melt you butter and cook red pepper and onions at medium high heat.
  3. Cook until veggies are soft and tender.
  4. Mix your veggies and cooked steak together.
  5. Unroll dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, firmly press to make the dough into one big piece. Press or roll into a rectangle.
  6. Spoon the steak mixture down center of dough to within 1/4 inch of each end. Sprinkle cheese over the steak mixture.
  7. Make cuts 1 inch apart on long sides of rectangle just to edge of filling (I used a pizza cutter to cut my dough).  For braided appearance, fold strips of dough at an angle halfway across filling with ends slightly overlapping, alternating from side to side. Fold ends of braid under to seal.
  8. Brush braid with beaten egg. (You don't have to use all of the egg, just brush enough on to cover the top).
  9. Bake 16 to 22 minutes or until golden brown, switching position of cookie sheet in your oven halfway through baking. Cool 1 minute; remove braid from cookie sheet.
  10. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Cut into slices.

  1. I've found that the pizza dough works better than the crescent rolls for these braids. It's faster at least. My mom and I have been doing "braids" for years. Ham & cheese, pizza, dessert braids...everything we can think of! In a pinch the pizza dough is already rectangle (usually the generic I buy is) and doesn't require crimping and meshing of seams! We usually season the top according the the meal we're making.
