Delight in Fusion Flavors: Philly Cheesesteak Quesadilla


Prepare for a culinary journey that combines the flavors of Philadelphia’s iconic cheesesteak with the portable delight of a quesadilla. The Philly Cheesesteak Quesadilla is a symphony of tender beef, melted cheese, and sautéed onions and peppers wrapped in a crisp tortilla. As you savor each bite, you’ll discover a satisfying combination of savory and cheesy goodness that brings two culinary worlds together in perfect harmony.


  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 1 lb thinly sliced ribeye steak or beef sirloin
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: sliced jalapeños or mushrooms


1. Sauté Magic: Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and bell peppers, sautéing until they become tender and slightly caramelized. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

2. Steak Showcase: In the same skillet, cook the thinly sliced ribeye steak until it’s nicely browned and cooked to your preferred level of doneness. Season with salt and pepper to enhance the flavors. Once cooked, remove the steak from the skillet and set aside.

3. Crispy Creation: Lay out a tortilla and sprinkle a layer of shredded cheese on half of it. Then, arrange a portion of the cooked steak on top of the cheese. Add a portion of the sautéed onions and peppers, and if you desire an extra kick, some sliced jalapeños or sautéed mushrooms.

4. Cheese Charm: Sprinkle more shredded cheese over the steak and vegetable mixture. This layer of cheese acts as a binding agent and adds a delightful melty surprise.

5. Fold and Sizzle: Fold the tortilla in half, enclosing the flavorful fillings. Place the assembled quesadilla in a heated skillet or griddle. Cook on both sides until the tortilla turns golden brown and the cheese inside melts into a gooey heaven.

6. Slice and Serve: Once the tortilla is crispy and the cheese is oozing, remove the quesadilla from the skillet. Let it rest for a moment before slicing it into wedges. This brief waiting period allows the flavors to settle and the cheese to set.

7. Flavor Fusion: Serve your masterpiece hot and with a side of sour cream, salsa, or guacamole, if desired. Each bite is a fusion of the Philly cheesesteak’s essence and the convenience of a quesadilla.

The Philly Cheesesteak Quesadilla is a testament to the culinary harmony that occurs when different flavors and traditions collide.
