Cheesesteak Dip


Italian sandwich dip was a huge success. I can't take credit for it, but everyone seemed to love it. This caused me to want to make every sandwich into a dip. Every sandwich.  Mandi is going to flip out when she reads this because she is very particular with cheesesteaks growing up in Philly after all, but hey, I have to do EVERY SANDWICH. It's a rule. Every sandwich must be a dip. This dip went over well, and I have leftovers, so I might take it to Thanksgiving this week. Speaking of that, I wish all my readers a good Thanksgiving, and I am really excited to come back on Monday. I have tons of stuff I want to cook this week, so I am hoping to finally be ahead of schedule and not be cooking the night before I post every time.

I started with some leftover roast and cheese. That is jack, cheddar, and american.

I made a thick roux, because I wanted the dip to be really creamy.

After adding the half and half, it became a nice thick liquid.

Adding cheese.

Peperoncini, caramelized onions, and chopped up beef.

This dip was really tasty.


First I caramelized the onions and set them aside, then I diced some leftover roast beef. I made a thick roux with butter, oil and flour and cooked it about 5 minutes. I added about a cup to 2 cups of half and half and whisked the shit out of it to make sure there were no lumps. Then the cheese went in(whisked well as well). Follow that up with some peperoncini (including some oil from the jar), the caramelized onions, and the cut up beef. Serve with cut pieces of bread


Looks great! Have a happy Thanksgiving.

Im sooo excited to stuff my face the next 5 days. What are we putting in the tortellinis this year? See you in 5 hrs!!!!!!

Looks awesome. Loving the way you are doing the cross sections of steps into one photos.

I want this instead of turkey!

OMG this dip looks AMAZING. I am going to make this tomrrow.

Swaaaaaa-hhheeeeeet! Nice work. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day! Best of luck in the challenge.

Bring on the rueben and muffaletta dip! Cuban sandwich dip...I could go on and on haha. Sloppy joe, sloppy sloppy joe.

I just made this for football snacking this afternoon, and it was a hit! I used a ribeye, and colby, jalapeno jack, and sharp cheddar. EPIC WIN, great recipe!

Oh man... YUM. That looks incredibleeee

Idea: Tuna salad dip/tuna melt dip. You could use cucumber slices as chips for the plain tuna salad dip, I do that often and it's really nice.

buffalo hot wing dip!
bottle of franks hot sauce, shredded chicken, bottle of ranch, celery seed, two packages of cream cheese, a handful or two of shredded cheddar. bake and serve. tastes just like hot wings

This cheesesteak dip looks amazing. I am going to a dip party this weekend and I want to make it but I am not sure about the amounts to use for each ingrediant could you please let me know.

Thank you for your time.

I want to eat this, and then I want to bathe in it. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!
