I don’t really know what the word Philly in from of the Swiss and Steak Sliders is supposed to entail? But I guarantee after you try these sliders, you won’t care. I kid you not, this is the best recipe I have ever made and I give all the credit to the sauce. I was looking at my pantry and fridge trying to decide what to create for my husband and I’s dinner one night, and decide to create one of my favorite dishes, Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches. So… here is my own rendition, but more family and budget friendly. This recipe will feed a crowd and is so easy to make.
You are first going to want to cut a package of rolls in half. You can cut each one individually, but your sandwiches might get soggy on the bottom if you decide to cut them this way (it will also take you a lot more time). I just grab a bread knife, place one hand on top of the rolls, and start slicing the rolls horizontally all the way across, until you have the bottoms and the tops. Place the “bottoms” of the rolls in a 9×13 pan.
This sauce is so easy. It’s mayo, mustard, dijon mustard, barbecue sauce, paprika and a little pepper. Done. Mix it all together and you officially have your new favorite sauce. It’s almost like our Chick Fil A sauce recipe, but better. I’d even dip our copycat Chick Fil A nuggets in this sauce it’s that good!
After you make the sauce, spread it over the bread “bottoms” evenly. Try not to get it over the edge, or the sauce will cause the bread to get soggy. Sprinkle a few green onions over the sauce. Then add a few swiss cheese slices on top of the onions. You can add as little or as much cheese as you would like, or even a mozzarella or cheddar cheese would be delicious with this recipe as well.
Once your cheese base is down, add your green peppers. I sautéed mine with a little olive oil, just to soften them up, but you don’t have to. My husband and I don’t love the crunch of peppers (it’s a texture thing) so I usually soften ours up by sautéing them for a few minutes.
Next, add you steak cuts. I used 2 New York Strip Steaks because that’s all I had in my freezer. You can use any type of steak, just be sure to cut it into thin strips that aren’t too long, or it will make it awkward to bite and pull the sliders apart from each other. You don’t want your sliders losing any of their meat. You can marinade your steak or season them as desired. I just added a few grill seasonings my husband wanted to try at the store, but you could also try our Juicy Marinated Steak Recipe.
Once you’ve added the steak, add another layer of swiss cheese, or any cheese you desire. Place the bun “tops” back on. Place the sliders in a preheated 350 degree oven and cook until the cheese is melted, or for about 10 minutes. We love to pair this with our Sweet Potato Fries or Parmesan Corn
