What You Need to Make Philly Cheesesteak Foil Packs

Enjoy tender cuts of meat, along with plenty of vegetable goodness. Additionally, the tangy Worcestershire sauce and melty cheese create an irresistible Philly cheesesteak flavor. For the exact measurements, refer to the recipe card below.

  • Ribeye Steak: I like to use ribeye with a lot of marbling. This will ensure that they are perfectly tender.
  • Green Bell Pepper: First, green pepper adds a delicious crunch to every bite. Additionally, the zing from the green pepper enhances the overall flavor, making it an essential component of this beloved dish.
  • Mushrooms: Sliced for incredible texture and heartiness.
  • Baby Potatoes: Tender baby potatoes replace the bread used in traditional Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches.
  • Yellow Onion: Diced to add sweet and savory flavor.
  • Olive Oil: Adds moisture to the steak and veggies.
  • Worcestershire Sauce: For a tangy and umami kick to the steak and veggies.
  • Salt and Black Pepper: To taste.
  • Provolone Cheese: I like sliced provolone cheese because it is rich and savory and melts perfectly. You can substitute provolone for Swiss, gouda, or pepper jack cheese.

How to Make Philly Cheesesteak Foil Pack

Throw together this easy Philly Cheesesteak foil pack recipe, and you’ll have dinner on the table in just over 30 minutes! Here’s how to assemble foil packs for the oven or grill:

  1. Prep: Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit or grill to 500-525 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix Ingredients: In a large bowl, toss together the sliced steak, bell pepper, mushrooms, potatoes, onion, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper.
  3. Assemble Foil Packets: Divide the meat and veggies evenly into 6 sheets of foil and fold in the sides and top of the foil until it is sealed and forms a packet.
  4. Cook: Place the foil packets in the oven or grill for 25-30 minutes until the meat is thoroughly cooked and the potatoes are tender. For the grill, flip the foil packs over halfway through cooking.
  5. Add Cheese: Remove the foil packs from the oven or grill and then open them. Place 2 slices of provolone cheese on top of each pack and return them to the oven or grill for another 2 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  6. Serve: Remove and enjoy!

Customize Your Philly Cheesesteak Foil Dinner

Here are a few customization ideas and tips on making this Philly Cheesesteak foil pack recipe perfect!

  • Cheese: The recipe calls for Provolone, but you can use any cheese you prefer. Avoid Cheez Whiz, as it won’t cook well on high heat.
  • Steak: The more tender the cut of meat, the better your end product will be. I use Ribeye, but skirt steak would also work really well. Just avoid really tough cuts of meat, or you will end up with very chewy pieces of meat.
  • Change the Meat: To create a delicious chicken version, substitute the steak with thinly sliced chicken breasts or tenders. However, be aware that cooking time may vary.
  • Make it Spicy: To enhance the flavor, add diced jalapeños or crushed red pepper flakes to the mix for an extra kick of heat.
  • Forming the Packets: When forming the foil packs, I find it helpful to shape the foil in a bowl first. This method makes it easier to form around the filling.

Storing Leftovers

These Philly Cheesesteak foil packs make fantastic leftovers! As a result, you can enjoy them for lunch or dinner the next day. Additionally, you can add everything to a roll to make it a delicious sandwich!

  • In the Refrigerator: Keep your packets in an airtight container. Cooked steak will last for up to 3 days.
  • Reheating: For best results, rewarm in the oven until heated through.
