A good Philly Cheesesteak sandwich is loaded with steak, provolone cheese, pepper, onions, and mushrooms. You will find all of these delicious ingredients in these Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Shells.
The provolone cheese almost gives it a smoky taste that takes it over the top. The steak was sliced thin, and so tender and moist in the stuffed shells.
Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Shells were easy to make. And if you love steak, this is sure to be added to your dinner rotation.
what kind of steak is best in Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Shells?
Our favorite steak in these Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Shells is the boneless New York Steak. We sliced it very thin and then cooked it with the onion and peppers.
Beef tenderloin sliced thin is also another delicious steak option. It’s so moist that it almost melts in your mouth.
Traditionally, Philly Cheesesteak is often made with a thinly sliced Ribeye. Ribeye is a little more expensive, so you may want to buy it when it’s on sale.
Another cut of meat that works well with Philly Cheesesteak is top sirloin. It’s a flavorful cut of meat that is tasty for these shells.
can these stuffed shells be made ahead of time?
Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Shells can easily be made ahead of time. Prepare the stuffed shells, then cover with foil or place them in an airtight container and store in the fridge until ready to bake.
We have made these 1 day early, and they have baked up well. The shells will only last a few days in the fridge in an airtight container. So try to prepare them 1 to 2 days before baking, if you need to make them ahead of time.
