Let's be honest, is there anything better than a "fresh from the deli" Philly Cheesesteak sandwich? Tender meat, savory veggies like mushrooms, onions, and peppers, plus lots of cheese? Not much that we can say for sure!
Grabbing a deli sandwich doesn't always align with our lifestyle, though. If we are trying to save money, eat better, hit our macros, or reduce sodium, then meal prepping is always a better option. But that doesn't mean that eating better has to be boring. This Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak recipe made with lean and affordable sirloin strip steak proves that point!
One pan. Good-for-you ingredients like protein from lean meat, veggies, and healthy fats from avocado oil and cheese. Macro friendly. It still contains all the flavors of your favorite sub, sans the bread, extra sodium, and fat. We even added in some kettle cooked chips on the side to make it feel more like a deli-style meal.
If you are following a low-carb or keto lifestyle, feel free to leave off the chips and serve yourself up an extra serving of the main event, the Philly Cheesesteak.
The star of this dish is the sirloin steak. We opted to use this cut because it is affordable, lean, and will cook fairly quickly. Plus, the sirloin will bring a great flavor that compliments the veggies so well! Those savory and umami flavors are what make this one-pan meal prep taste like a deli-style meal Monday through Thursday!
You can have this meal prep ready in under 30 minutes, which means less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying these warm summer days!
How long will Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak last for?

Can Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak be frozen?

That way, when you reheat the meal, it tastes fresh - the steak won't be tough and your vegetables won't be soggy.

How do you make Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak?
Now you're ready to cook up some hearty cheesesteak goodness? Awesome! The recipe is simple and you'll have four delicious lunches in less than 45 minutes. So get your ingredients together and let's get started!
First things first, preheat your oven and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Then grab a small bowl to whisk your sauce ingredients together. The Worcestershire sauce and seasonings go over the steak and veggies after you place them on the sheet pan. Toss the veggies in the sauce until fully coated so you don't miss out on each flavorful bite! Now your steak is ready to cook in the oven.
Put the steak and veggies in your preheated oven to cook for 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of broiling to caramelize the veggies. After cooking and broiling, remove the steak from the oven and let the steak rest before slicing it into strips. All that's left to do is slice the steak and top with cheese.
We all know that a Philly wouldn't be a Philly without melted cheese, so pop the cheese-covered steak strips in the oven and broil for 5 minutes. Once the cheese melts all over the steak, garnish your sheet pan Philly cheesesteak meal with fresh parsley.
How to portion Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak?
Since we're serving this easy lunch idea with potato chips, you need to keep the chips separate from the cheesesteak so they don't get soggy. You need four dual-compartment meal prep containers like these. Put your Philly cheesesteak in the bigger compartment and your chips in the other compartment. However, we suggest adding the chips the day you plan on enjoying this meal.

Other tips for making Sheet Pan Philly Cheesesteak:
Don't overcrowd your sheet pan so everything cooks thoroughly. The ideal size sheet pan to use is 13x18".
We opted to use this cut of sirloin because it is affordable, lean, and will cook fairly quickly. Plus, the sirloin will bring a great flavor that compliments the veggies so well! You can also use rib-eye.
Ask your butcher for thin cuts of steak.
Season your steak before cooking. Let the seasoning marinate by putting the steak in the fridge for at least one hour.
