Philly Cheese Steak Dip
Philly Cheese Steak Dip … now say it again.. Philly Cheese Steak Dip … Mmmmm….
Now back to reality! Have you ever been to a party and looked around wondering where the food is at?
I think we’ve all been to those parties. There is nothing wrong with a low-maintenance get together because honestly it’s supposed to be about being with friends and family but this girl needs food. What can I say? I’m a big believer that food is love and if I I’m entertaining people I am that person that has enough food to feed literally the entire neighborhood. And probably even the next one over too.
It’s just my way to say I love you and thanks for being in my world. I think good food and great friends is the perfect combination (and an open bar!) and that pairing is what makes the world go round, my friends.
So there’s this little thing starting up next week, maybe you’ve heard of it.. it’s call FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!! And I’m sorry but even if you are not a fan, chances are there is going to be a lot of friends and family joining together to celebrate the season. It’s honestly my favorite time of year and I have learned that it’s really hard to stay mad at somebody bashing your team when your dunking a tortilla chip into something hot and cheesy at the same time. Melted cheese squashes Rivalry Rage.
Or at least that’s what I tell myself. (… why is there a Miami Hurricane fan in my house???….)
I was looking for a new hot dip idea to serve people when they come over Saturdays to watch the games. I decided to take my favorite hot sandwich which is a Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and make that into a delicious ooey gooey cheese dip. My brain about exploded the first time I tasted this dip in real life vs. in my own brain.
Talk about the perfect creation.. I think I could understand how Dr. Frankenstein felt the first time his monster came to life!!!
Sorry.. totally off topic… I’ve been Halloween shopping … (sigh) … I’m sorry!
Back to the deliciousness people!!! .. This is just your favorite cheese steak sandwich but with more cheese and served on a Taco chip! Rich, cheesy, bits of delicious steak with onion (and green pepper if you like) this is now my new favorite dip to cheer my team on with.
Super quick and easy to put together this will be the WOW FACTOR on your appetizer table. I promise you that! This dip is perfect for sharing with friends and family or even if you just want to treat yourself, it’s great for the holidays and perfect for any social gathering. If you are looking to totally stock up your munchie table, don’t forget to check out my The Best Enchilada Dip Ever, my Peanut Butter Dip for a sweet treat and what party is complete without Spicy Crockpot Meatballs???
But in this particular instance, it’s all about the football games baby!
Ps… Note to Self: Remember to get your nails done next time you have a post with bite close ups … sigh ….
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think… or just say Hi! I love hearing from you!!
Start by putting your steak in the freezer for 20 minutes .. it will make it easier to slice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place a large skillet on your stove top and heat on High
Remove your steak from the freezer and slice into small strips or pieces.. I usually remove the meat from the store packaging, roll into a tube shape and slice of small strips starting at end of the tube
Once all of the meat has been cut, move to the large heated skillet - its ok of the edge crisp up a bit - cook until no longer pink then move to a plate covered with paper towels
Wipe out the skillet so that no liquid remains and return it to the stove top to heat up again
Return the steak again to skillet and sprinkle 1/2 tsp salt and the pepper over the meat and stir to combine
Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese evenly over meat and remove from stove top - set aside
In a large sauce pan, add the butter and diced onions (and green pepper if using). Cook for 2-3 minutes and then whisk in the flour - cook 1 minute
Pour in the heavy cream, onion powder, 1/2 tsp salt, garlic powder and whisk all items together. Stir continuously
Bring to a low boil and lower heat to Low - add in White American Cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Stir until cheese is melted and then stir in the steak
Pour into a 9 x 9 baking pan and sprinkle shredded Provolone or Cheddar cheese on top
