Philly Cheese Steak Fries

This cheesy classic is easy and brings a flavorful punch to a boring afternoon meal!


  • Steak, we used 1 medium sized ribeye per serving.
  • 150-200g fries per person
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  •  8 oz block sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt


For the Steak:

  1. Cover and freeze your steak for 35-40 minutes. (This makes thin slicing much easier). Then slice against the grain to create thin slivers.
  2. Add a tablespoon of oil to a heated skillet on high heat. Add sliced steak evenly throughout skillet and cook for a few minutes. Once browned, flip and add your salt a pepper to taste, we used ½ tsp of each.


  1. Prepare a half bag of fries using your preferred cooking method. We chose to fry ours beforehand!

Cheese sauce:

  1. Melt the butter over medium heat.
  2. Add the flour.
  3. Whisk until it becomes a paste like texture.
  4. Add the milk to the skillet and continue whisking.
  5. Increase heat to high until boiling.
  6. Once boiling, quickly reduce to a simmer. Allow the sauce to thicken up a bit.
  7. Add cayenne pepper and salt, whisk.
  8. Turn off the heat and remove the skillet from the stove.
  9. Add the cheese and gently as the cheese melts.


  1. Add your fries to a plate or skillet, top with steak and smother with cheese.
