I made these wonderful tasting Faux Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches from a left over Roast Beef Dinner I had made a few day earlier. I call them Faux because I used Pot Roast instead of Rib Eye Steak. I did add a pound of Ground Round to the Roast Beef, because I thought it would not be enough. I had more than enough, & left overs for the next day. I used Provolone, Pepper Jack & Cheese Whiz, but use what you like. I added lots of peppers onions, & Mushrooms for the added crunch, & a hint of Worcestershire Sauce. Served on 12 inch Buns, but you can use smaller ones if desired. Remix Dinner.

How To Make faux philly cheese steak sandwiches

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Just to melt cheese on sandwiches after they are made if desired. Toast bread if desired Optional. These are the 12 inch buns we used. The smaller ones will work fine also, I just cut one into a third for myself, hubby ate 2 of them.
  • 2
    Wash veggies(except mushrooms) and cut into desired pieces.
  • 3
    Cut Roast Beef slices into thirds before putting into food processor for easier processing.
  • 4
    Add sliced roast beef to food processor, and pulse until desired consistency is reached. I pulsed about 6 or 7 times.
  • 5
    I also added 1 pound of Ground Round to make sure I had enough. It depends on how many you are serving, & if they are hearty eaters.
  • 6
    Heat olive oil in large skillet then add in the veggies and ground round, cook until veggies are tender crisp or as desired & beef is no longer pink. Add in the spices and Worcestershire sauce, and stir to blend together.
  • 7
    Add the processed roast beef from the food processor to the skillet. Taste and add additional spices if desired.
  • 8
    Cut the buns with a serrated knife. Then cut the cheese slices in half and add half on the bottom of roll and the remainder on top after adding the beef to the rolls. Top each bun with 2-3 tablespoons of Cheese Whiz.
  • 9
    Place sandwiches in preheated 350 degree F. oven just long enough to melt the cheeses. CAN USE BROILER BUT WATCH VERY CLOSELY TO PREVENT BURNING. Then remove and serve while hot.
