While pumpkin-everything are popping up everywhere (including my blog), let’s take a break for a moment and enjoy some savory goodness, like this Philly cheese steak sliders. On PRETZEL rolls! These cheesy, meaty sliders are perfect for game day menu, as well as weekday dinner.

As you know, Philly cheese steak sandwich is known for its super thinly sliced (or should I say, shaved?) meat, which is a little hard to achieve without a meat slicer.

But I have a trick that my mom taught me early on. (One of my chores was to help mom to cook dinner, and for some reason, slicing and mincing the meat was my job.)

Anyway, first, you’ll need a good sharp knife. Second, the meat has to be semi-frozen, just firm enough to shave off the thin slices. If you’ve got fresh meat from the store, simply place the meat in the freezer for 30-45 minutes to firm up.

Philly Cheese Steak Sliders

Messy little Philly cheese steak sliders are irresistibly cheesy and flavorful, perfect for your game day menu!

Yield: 8 sliders


  • 1lb ribeye steak (or any kind of steak), semi-frozen
  • 4-5 white or cremini mushrooms (about 2 cups chopped)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper (about 1 cup chopped)
  • ¼ red onion (about ¼ cup chopped)
  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 Pretzel slider buns
  • 8 slices Provolone cheese


  1. Using a very sharp knife, slice the steak into very thin slices. (I’m using rib eye steak, because it’s the most flavorful steak, but you can use any tender cut.) It’s easier to shave off thin slices, if the meat is semi-frozen. Simply place the fresh meat in the freezer for 30-45 minutes to firm up. Slice the mushrooms, bell pepper and onion into thin slices/strips as well.
  2. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium high heat. Stir in the onion and cook until fragrant, about a minute. Add mushrooms and bell pepper and cook until tender, 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon of salt. Transfer the vegetables onto a clean plate. Set aside.
  3. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and thinly sliced steak into the skillet. Season the meat with remaining ½ teaspoon of salt, black pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Cook the steak for about 3 minutes, until nicely browned. Transfer to a clean plate and set aside.
  4. Slice the pretzel rolls in half crosswise and spread the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter on each cut side of the buns. Place the buns buttered side down on the hot skillet and toast for about a minute.
  5. To assemble the sliders, divide the meat among 8 slider buns, place half of the cheese, then veggie mixture and the remaining cheese.
  6. Right before serving, broil until the cheese melts, 1-2 minutes.
  7. Replace the top of the slider buns and serve!

  1. What a fun twist on a Philly Cheesesteak!

  2. I just “found” you and I’m spending too much time trying to take in all your great recipes. You will find me here very often I can honestly say. I do have a question about the sliders above. On the video you end by broiling the entire sandwich. Doesn’t that just toast the very top (maybe you don’t put it high in the oven as you would for “broiling”. Anyway, you previously toasted the rolls in the beginning and I assume the main job of the final 1-2 min. broil is to melt the cheese and with the top put on I wonder how the cheese melts in one minute????

    Am I being too daft to questing this???? Can’t wait to make these. Thanks for sharing all your talents.

    • Hi, Lexy! Welcome!! So glad you’re here. 🙂 You asked very good question, something that’s vague in the recipe that I should correct. I broil the sliders with top off, so cheese melts faster. (I hired someone to make the video for me, and because the recipe doesn’t specify it, they must have broiled them with top on, which doesn’t hurt either.) Thank you for noticing it, and I’ll update the recipe right away. And please don’t hesitate to ask any questions, and let me know if you make any of my recipes. Enjoy!

  3. This looks like an incredible dinner! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

  4. These are lovely looking sliders. I hope you don’t mind if I take two. 😀 Have a fab weekend. xx #FoodieFriDIY

  5. these look delicious and so gourmet! 

  6. love everything about these sliders! especially the pretzel bun – heavenly! pinning and sharing!! 

  7. These look incredible. I think sliders were a great invention…they are just fun. Pinning.

  8. Great looking sandwich and take on philly cheese steak. I just made its big brother in a stuffed burger form. Great Pics.. :))

  9. My hubby would LOVE these! PINNED to make! Wow! This is mouthwatering amazing! I would love for you to share this at my party Making Memories Mondays that is going on now! Hope to see you there! 🙂

  10. I’m drooling just looking at the delicious photos! Making these tonight! Thank you!

  11. I have always wondered how people sliced meat so thin. Thanks for letting us know. Have to make these sliders. Yummy!!!!

  12. OMG, those look amazing Shinee!! I have never owned a really good knife, and I think it’s about time that I get one! 😉

  13. Great recipe! I’m going to make it this weekend. I want the Santoku knife because I treated my boyfriend to the Wolfgang Puck restaurant last weekend appropriately named “CUT” and spent the most I’ve ever spent on a meal: nearly $600 including tip!! *faint* I’m not made of money by any means but it was the best meal ever and he’s worth it.
    Here is the receipt: http://imgur.com/Prb7CoF
    Now I’m obssesed with all things steak and want to learn how to perfect cooking steak and all meats. I’m 30 and just learning to cook for the first time. The right tools would go a long way. : ) Pleaaaase help a rookie girl out. Love the blog and will be tuning in to learn more recipes! Thanks!

    • $600?? Wow, your bf is a lucky guy! And the meal must have been delicious too! I agree steaks are the best! Thanks for visiting and sharing your story! Good luck, Parisa!

  14. This looks like a great recipe. I would love to finally own a quality knife to make this recipe!

  15. I would love a new knife & can’t wait to make the sliders–they look AMAZING!!

  16. thanks for the opportunity to win! I’m still hacking away with the inexpensive knives from my wedding (many many years ago) – would love to have something decent in my kitchen 😀

  17. I’ve always used professional Quality knives like Dexter/Forschner but I’d love to try out this one. I was trying to cut frozen chicken with my Dexter chefs knife and the blade just broke in a 1/2″ semi-circle. I called Dexter and they sent me a new one at no cost.

  18. How embarrassing to have your step children’s mom, husband’s x-wife was over helping prepare food for a graduation party and she comments on your knives in a warning tone because it could be dangerous to continue to use knives that have such loose handles!!! I need a new set!

  19. I am going to make these tomorrow. They look amazing. I just hope my cheap knives cut the meat thin enough.

  20. I’ve made similar sandwiches to these sliders but never tried pretzel buns. I’ll be sure to do so next time! Thank you for the meat cutting tip, that’s the part I dislike the most. Having a good sharp knife is key. Another tip, don’t “borrow” your hub’s fishing/fillet knife…he doesn’t appreciate it no matter how good the food is! lol

  21. don’t know if you will get this far in reading your comment because there is so many of them but I just wanted to let you know those Philly Steak cheese sliders look so fantastic and I will be trYing them and then I run across theentry for the knife set and I’m going to enter because I’m in bad need of a good set of knives!!!Thank you for such great recipes and I hope I win thank you!!!

  22. I have recently found myself being a recipe geek, and trying so many new dishes for our Sunday worship team at church. What they haven’t figured out yet is that most of the dishes I have been making is my first time doing so and I really don’t even know how it all turns out til they eat it. Hope they don’t mind being a guinea pig lol. My knife fails would be that I go into these store and out of respect for others I find myself listening to these salespeople with displays of knife set claiming to be the sharpest knife there is and now I have a drawer of knives that don’t cut butter and supposedly made out of the best quality but break so easily. I would love to have a Santoku knife

  23. I’ve had issues with cutting myself from not having a sharp knife. I also find cheap knives hard to hold properly. A nice, weighted knife just makes the job easier. Thanks for the recipe. Looking forward to trying it!

  24. WE love Cheese Steaks!! My husband amd children would love to have these!! thanks you for the recipe and for the giveaway also. Be great to have one.

  25. Oh wow that would be an awesome prize to win. I have one sharp knife in my entire house! I just can’t afford to buy new ones right now. 🙂

  26. My boyfriend insisted that he could be trusted to purchase our cutlery when we moved in together. I should have known better. He came back with Ginsu knives swearing that they were the best. He saw the infomercial and they cut through everything. Well they were the worst knives ever. He is no longer allowed to watch infomercials or purchase any kitchen items!!

  27. I have a hard time using knives because of my disability. I can be slicing away and think to myself oh dang that’s gotta hurt. lol I don’t feel it. I have bought many very expensive knives, unfortunately when I had to go take care of my mom, HE found my favorite. sighhhhhh He sharpened it, and it’s not longer my favorite. Not sure why men feel the need to have to ruin something that isn’t broke lol , but their very good at it. My knife unfortunately doesn’t cut through very much anymore . It’s ok, I am quite sure my fingers appreciate it LOLOLOL

  28. Hello! I am making these lovely sliders right now! There is nothing like the aroma of grilled onions, peppers and mushrooms! The only thing that would make this dish complete is a new, SHARP professional knife. I had to ask my husband to saw through the half frozen ribeye. I would love to make this dish again without help:)

  29. I have never owned a professional knife. Would love to win one.

  30. My husband loves Philly Steak Sandwiches, I can’t wait to make these for him. I just love how Pinterest pulls people together with common interest who would otherwise never meet. So thank you so much for sharing your delicious recipes with those of us who are not so talented in the culinary department! It would be a true blessing to win one of these beautiful knives. I have never been able to afford to buy a really good knife that works as a knife really should, mine always seem to misbehave! Haha

    • Agreed, Pinterest is awesome! And thank you so much for your kind compliment. Hope you and husband enjoy these sliders as mush as we did! Thanks for entering the giveaway as well. Good luck!

  31. I love quality cutlery, and have a few nice pieces. I don’t have a Santoku, though, and would love to have this one!

  32. I was lured to your site by these sliders…added them to my menu for next week. Thank you.

    I have a favorite chef’s knife. I bought it while working in Australia a few years ago. It wasn’t really expensive, but it just had the right feel in my hand. Recently I dropped the knife and the bent the tip. I am still using the knife…cannot bear to part with it….

    • Oh no, hate such accidents, and totally understand why you wouldn’t want to part with you favorite knife. You nailed it, no matter how expensive/cheap the good knife is, it has to be comfortable in your hand. Nancy, thanks for entering the giveaway. Good luck!

  33. It is so very hard to find a small knife that would be sufficient to use on everything! I would love to receive one of your knives! I do a great deal of cooking….probably for at least 40 years! Please pick me!

  34. Hi Shinee, Welcome to the United States. I came across your food blog and it is very appealing with your pictures and easy directions. Thank You for doing this. The sliders do look very appetizing, I shall have to try them. What part of Mongolia are you from and what is the nature like there? Put me in for a knife also, I could use a new one. Thanks again, Tom

    • Thanks, Tom, for your kind words! I was born and raised in Erdenet, Mongolia. (Northern part of Mongolia) It’s home to lots of beautiful mountains, wide steppes and Gobi dessert. Thank you for entering the giveaway. Wish you luck!

  35. I’ve bought the expensive knives before and they never work the way they are supposed to. Or don’t do as they claim. A lot of them feel as though they weigh a ton. I truly would like to have one set of knives that are really good quality.

  36. I want that knife cause just looking at it makes me happy!!
