Philly steak cheese fries

Philly Cheesesteak Fries – A savory steak, pepper, & onion mixture coated in a creamy, cheesy sauce all resting on a mound of crispy crinkle-cut fries. Cheesesteak Fries can shared with friends at your Super Bowl gathering or, if you’re like me, just make them for dinner.

Ok, can I say something before we get into explaining the deliciousness pictured here?

By now you’ve realized I like food.

But often what I cook isn’t, well, a completely “authentic” recipe.

Sometimes I take shortcuts (like using a seasoning packet).

 I recreate a restaurant recipe.

 I take a beloved regional sandwich and turn it into a delicious, cheesy mess.

And that’s what these Philly Cheesesteak Fries are.

Gooey and delicious.

Finger food only for the brave.

Pile a portion onto a plate and eat with a fork for the more dainty of us.

And they’d probably cause a Philadelphian to melt in shame at my audacity.

I don’t know why I wanted to combine cheesesteak and cheese fries into one, but I have to say, I’m really happy I did.

I’m also pretty certain if you add these to your Super Bowl feast, there’s going to be some others who are really happy about it, too.

Oh, and a note on the fries: You really want to use the Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Golden Crinkles. Crinkle Cut is essential for catching all the cheesy goodness and these particular fries are much heartier than other brands I’ve tried.



  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 cups milk, warmed



Cheese sauce:

Melt butter in a medium saucepan.
Once the bubbling has subsided add flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until light brown.

Slowly add warm milk to the butter-flour mixture, stirring constantly. Cook 4-5 minutes until thickened.
Remove from heat and slowly mix in cubed cheese until melted.
Cover and cook on the lowest heat possible until it fully incorporates, stirring periodically. Keep warm.
Meat, pepper & onion mixture:

Preheat a large saute pan over high heat.
Add meat to pan and cook, over high heat, until no longer red.
Remove from pan and set aside.
Return pan to heat, add additional oil (if necessary) and add the peppers and onions.

Cook, stirring often until peppers are softened and onions are browned.
Return meat to the pan, stirring into the pepper and onion mixture.
Cook until the meat, peppers, & onions are caramelized. Remove from heat.
Assembling the fries:
Place cooked fries on a platter or sheet pan (see note).
Scoop meat mixture over fries.
Pour half of the cheese sauce over fries and meat.
Serve remaining sauce on the side.
