How many ways can Philly Cheesesteak be recreated? Well, how about one more? Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna Rolls!!
Don’t get me wrong I’m sure there are other recipes similar to this, but I gave it my own tweak!
Inspiration for this dish came from one of the ladies I work with. When you work with a group of women, the conversation naturally gravitates to food and cooking. Over the years, we have shared many recipes.
Dorothy is retiring this year, and she has shared many a recipe with me. We will miss her and her recipes 💞. She recently shared a recipe for a Philly stuffed shell. Originally my plan was to make the stuffed shells. Those big shells are hard to find, and I know Amazon… but I was making the recipe that day.
Perusing the pasta, lasagna noodles stood apart from the crowd. In the cart, they went. Rolls instead of stuffed shells.
The original recipe called for a cheddar cheese sauce. Now the only way I’ve had a Philly Cheesesteak is with provolone cheese, so provolone it was.
Steak is the star of a Philly Cheesesteak, so at my local Aldi’s they have a skirt steak cut into small chunks. I must admit I can’t remember what they called it, but it saved a lot of time having it already cut.
Cast iron skillets. If you do not have one get one!! They are the best kitchen tool, skillet, piece of equipment ….EVER!!!!!
Searing meat in a cast iron skillet gives that crust you want on a piece of meat. You can get it screaming hot to get that sear quickly. Avocado oil can stand up to that heat and is heart healthy, and my new choice of oil. Actually, I have been using it for a long time. Besides standing up to high heat, it also has a neutral flavor for dressing and other dishes.
I felt like the steak needed a touch of something, so ketchup and Worcestershire gave it a little kick.
Cook the lasagna noodles ahead and lay them on a baking sheet while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. Putting them on a baking sheet keeps them from sticking together.
Provolone sauce is a basic white sauce with provolone cheese and a touch of cayenne pepper. Cream and milk together give the sauce a super creamy texture.
Roll the meat mixture and some shredded provolone in the lasagna noodles and place in a baking pan. The size of the baking pan depends on how tightly you want your roll to fit. Mine were slightly scrunched together.
Pour the creamy sauce over the rolls and top with sauteed onions and peppers. Another sprinkle of provolone and into the oven for about 30 minutes, just until the mixture is bubbly hot and the cheese is starting to brown.
As with any lasagna type dish, it’s wise to let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes to make serving easier.
