Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese Combines Two Classics Into One Easy Dinner

This easy mac and cheese recipe came out of my having to use up food in the fridge! I am great at meal planning, but sometimes life happens and I don’t get around to all the ingredients I’ve purchased. Which is what happened when I created this recipe! I had Philly Cheesesteaks on the menu as well as mac and cheese, and with the expiration date looming on the roast beef I decided to combine the two and it turned out perfectly!

How to Make Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese

Even my pickiest eater enjoyed this…all while picking out the peppers and onions. I still consider it a win!

ORRRR you could totally leave out the “Cheesesteak” portion of this altogether and have a creamy plain mac n’ cheese dinner on its own. This mac and cheese recipe makes a deliciously smooth mac n’ cheese…basically like a “Shells and Cheese” kinda thing without the Velveeta.

  1. Cook your onion and your peppers really well so they’re super soft and lightly carmelized.
  2. Next I sliced up some Roast Beef I got from the deli counter at the store and add that into the cooked onions and peppers until theated through.
  3. Then cook your pasta according to the package directions.
  4. While the pasta is cooking make the cheese sauce.
  5. Then mix it all together!

I’ve sat here at my keyboard for a few minutes trying to come up with the best way to say something without it sounding mean. I’m not trying to be mean. I’m from Philly. The only ingredient in this recipe that you find in a Philly Cheesesteak is the onions. And even they’re an optional item. It’s kind of like calling this Welsh Rarebit because it has Cheddar Cheese in it. I’m sure it’s delicious but it’s not in any way related to a Philly Cheesesteak. And that’s sad…. :'(

Hi Shelly,

Greetings from Singapore!

May I check with you if I may switch evaporated milk to buttermilk for this recipe?

Thanks to advise 🙂

I think your recipe and although I am a baker too we do have to have meals first. This mac and cheesecake sounds great and I am so trying it. Thank you

I made this tonight, and it was delicious, but my cheese sauce was a bit grainy. Any idea why that would happen? Thanks!

Angie, and Shelly, I made this Mac & cheese tonight and mine came out grainy too. I checked other sources and found you MUST add cheese off heat or over very low heat so the cheese doesn’t break down and become grainy. Even so, We enjoyed this recipe very much and will try it again.

Brilliant concept! I am going to try this with the kiddos. Please keep the meals coming- what good is dessert to top off a meal if you don’t have the meal to begin with 🙂

What an AWESOME first meal dish!
My daughter would love this – I haven’t tried using evaporated milk in my mac n cheese before – gotta try it! Thanks for sharing!

I just made Mac and Cheese, I wish I had seen this first. I love that you used shells, they are my favorite

January 8, 2014 4:57 pm

Oh yum! That looks absolutely delicious.
Love the idea of adding steak, makes it even more indulgent. The ultimate comfort food!

I’m excited to see some ‘comfort food’ over here too! If I add peppers and onions and beef, maybe I can *finally* get James to eat mac and cheese. Probably not, but then it’s just more for me, right?
