If you like Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches, then you're going to love this soup recipe. It has all the flavors of the classic Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, but in soup form.

Several versions of this recipe suggest serving this soup in hollowed out round loaves of sourdough bread, and saving the carved out bread to dip in the soup. The next time I make this soup, I'd like to try that (maybe even toasting the bread chunks to crisp them first).

How to Make Philly Cheese Steak Soup


  1. In a Dutch oven or a heavy stockpot placed over medium heat, brown the steak strips in 1 tbsp. of butter for about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with steak seasoning, cook and stir another minute. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  2. Add chopped onions and garlic to the pot. Cook and stir until lightly browned and caramelized. Stir in the bell peppers and mushrooms. Cook and stir another 7 minutes, or until peppers are starting to caramelize, but still retain color.
  3. Return steak back to the pot, and stir well.
  4. Add beef broth, milk, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and thyme (adjusting seasonings as desired). Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer on low for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat. Just before serving, add cheese a few slices at a time, and stir until cheese is mostly melted. Serve hot.
