Let’s break down this simple cheese steak dip recipe:

This simple cheese steak dip can be broken down into three main parts including the vegetables, the cheese, and the steak. Let’s take a look at each one.

Vegetables. Our recipe uses diced yellow onion and diced bell pepper that are sautéed to perfection in butter over medium heat. These add flavor to the dip. When preparing the onion, be sure to use a sharp knife to cut them. And remove the stem and the seeds from the bell pepper to prepare it before dicing it.

Cheese. There are many kinds of cheese that can be used to make this delicious Philly Cheesesteak like dip. In keeping with the Outback tradition, it’s recommended that Gouda cheese be the main contender along with Jack and Parmesan cheeses. But if you’re in a pinch there are many substitutes out there that will do the job.  

Steak. A sirloin steak is what our recipe calls for. But the kind of beef steak doesn’t matter as much as does the fact that it needs to be sliced thinly and cut into small pieces so that it works well in the dip. There are other cuts of beef and steak that work just fine as substitutes when you need them.

Tips for Making Cheese Steak Dip

Our tips for making cheesesteak dip include the following:

1. Use a good oven safe baking dish to bake the dip and one that’s good for serving it too. Otherwise, you’ll be trying to transfer contents back and forth and that can be a hassle and not look as pretty when you get done.

2. Be sure to sauté the vegetables until they’re soft. If you skip this step, you’ll have crunchy vegetables and that will change the experience of eating the dip.

3. Make sure to cook the beef before adding it to the mix. The time the dip requires in the oven to melt the cheese is not long enough for the beef to cook.

Yes, you can use American cheese in place of Gouda cheese. It will alter the flavor slightly, but it will still provide delicious results.

Try serving with a sliced baguette or even a toasted baguette to change up the flavor and texture.

Carrots and celery sticks, or any other desired raw vegetables are another perfect way to change things up.
