Cheesesteak Garlic Bread Recipe

A delightful fusion of classic cheesesteak flavors and savory garlic bread, perfect for a hearty snack or a satisfying meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf of French bread, halved lengthwise
  • 1 lb thinly sliced steak (ribeye or sirloin)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Garlic Bread:
    • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • In a small bowl, mix the softened butter, minced garlic, garlic powder, and a pinch of salt until well combined.
    • Spread the garlic butter mixture evenly over the cut sides of the French bread.
    • Place the bread halves on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden and crispy.
  2. Cook the Steak and Vegetables:
    • While the bread is baking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Add the sliced onions and bell peppers (and mushrooms, if using). Cook until they are softened and starting to caramelize, about 5-7 minutes.
    • Push the vegetables to the side of the skillet and add the thinly sliced steak. Season with onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook until the steak is browned and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes.
    • Mix the steak with the vegetables until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Cheesesteak Garlic Bread:
    • Remove the toasted garlic bread from the oven.
    • Evenly distribute the steak and vegetable mixture over the garlic bread halves.
    • Sprinkle the shredded cheese generously over the top of the steak and vegetables.
  4. Melt the Cheese:
    • Return the assembled garlic bread to the oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Serve:
    • Remove from the oven, let it cool for a minute, and then slice into individual servings.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
    • Serve warm and enjoy your Cheesesteak Garlic Bread!

This Cheesesteak Garlic Bread combines the best of both worlds, making it a delicious and easy-to-make dish for any occasion.
