Blackstone Philly Cheesesteak (Keto Approved)

Please share:

Last Updated on August 19, 2021

The Blackstone Griddle has quickly become my favorite cooking surface. Our family takes any opportunity to prepare breakfast, lunch, or dinner out on the griddle.

About the Blackstone Griddle

The Blackstone Griddle is a cast iron cooking surface that’s taking over the outdoor grilling experience. The griddle is made of heavy cast iron that can be heated with precision. It has a very flat surface, which makes it perfect for cooking pancakes, french toast, grilled cheese sandwiches, and of course: Philly cheesesteaks. Powered by propane, it’s easy to use, clean, and the seasoned flavor of the foods… Mmmmmm.

Keto Philly Cheesesteak Recipe

This bread-less Philly Cheesesteak is a great option for those on a grain-free and/or Keto diet. You don’t need to be Keto to enjoy this flavor combo. There’s 4 main ingredients to a classic cheesesteak:

  • shaved beef
  • green peppers
  • onions
  • provolone cheese

Simple… and with the right salt seasoning blend, incredible!

History of the Philly Cheesesteak

The Philly Cheesesteak is a traditional Philadelphia sandwich which typically consists of sliced pieces of beef and cheese, placed on an Italian loaf sandwich roll.

The history of the cheesesteak starts around the 1930s. In 1930, Pat Olivieri came to America from Italy and opened an Italian hot dog stand in South Philadelphia. Pat noticed that one day his son was eating a sandwich made with beef and onions he called an “Italian steak” or “Philadelphia steak”. He then decided to put it on a kaiser bun with provolone cheese and tomato paste for extra flavor. The first cheesesteak place opened Sept. 17th in Philadelphia.

Marinate Cheesesteak Meat

Marinate the Beef

For this recipe, we marinade the shaved beef to give it more flavor, and keep it from drying out as it cooks.

Savory Salt on Philly Cheesesteak

Our preferred seasoning blend for most everything is cardnl’s Savory Salt Blend. It adds more than just salt, but a subtle garlic/onion flavor that enhances pretty much anything it touches. This seasoning blend is PERFECT on a cheesesteak. Pick some up today, it’s amazing. 😉

Cooking Cheesesteak on Blackstone

Cooking this Philly Cheesesteak on the griddle is incredibly easy, with the veggies taking up one half while the beef cooks on the other half.

  1. Heat the griddle to medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Pour a thin layer of avocado oil on half the griddle surface, then add your peppers and onions. Stir to coat with the oil and spread out to let them saute. Stir occasionally to prevent them from overly browning on one side.
  2. When the veggies are cooked about halfway (you want them to be browned and tender, not quite caramelized), pour another thin layer of avocado oil to the other half of the griddle. Drain the marinade out of the bag of beef, then put the beef on the griddle. Stir as it cooks, making sure it browns all the way through.
  3. When both the veggies and beef are cooked all the way, combine all of it on the griddle surface, turn off the heat, and layer the provolone slices across the entire top of the meat/veggies. It will quickly melt.
  4. See full instruction below

Once everything is cooked up, simply top with the provolone cheese, let it melt in beautifully, and serve it up hot. And of course, top with an extra sprinkling on Savory Salt and you’ve got a crowd-pleasing meal.

Yield: 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Red Wine
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp Coarse Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Beef Broth
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 lb Beef Chuck Roast
  • 3 small Green Bell Peppers
  • 3 small Yellow Onions
  • cardnl Savory Salt Seasoning Blend
  • Avocado Oil, for cooking
  • 9 slices Provolone Cheese

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients from Apple Cider Vinegar to Honey in a gallon zip-top bag. Seal the top and smush the bag around to combine the marinade. Open the bag back up and set it in a bowl to keep it from falling over.
  2. Very thinly slice the beef against the grain. Make it as thin as you can, so it's basically shaved. Add the sliced/shaved beef to the marinade in the bag. Close the bag and push out as much air as possible. Massage to coat all the beef with the marinade. Set in the fridge while you prep the veggies. and griddle.
  3. Slice the bell peppers thinly lengthwise. If you don't want them so long, cut them in half. Halve the onions and cut thin slices. Set aside.
  4. Heat the griddle to medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Pour a thin layer of avocado oil on half the griddle surface, then add your peppers and onions. Season to taste with Savory Salt. Stir to coat with the oil and spread out to let them saute. Stir occasionally to prevent them from overly browning on one side.
  5. When the veggies are cooked about halfway (you want them to be browned and tender, not quite caramelized), pour another thin layer of avocado oil to the other half of the griddle. Drain the marinade out of the bag of beef, then put the beef on the griddle. Stir as it cooks, making sure it browns all the way through. Season to taste with Savory Salt.
  6. When both the veggies and beef are cooked all the way, combine all of it on the griddle surface, turn off the heat, and layer the provolone slices across the entire top of the meat/veggies. It will quickly melt.
  7. Use a large spatula to scoop up servings onto individual plates and serve right away. We prefer it topped with a little more Savory Salt Blend.

We never make our cheese steak like this or have seen it made with honey, vinegar, coconut aminos. All we do is fry up grass fed chip steak (often found at farm markets and don't use Steak Umms), with onion, mushrooms, hot and sweet peppers. Top with provolone cheese. I eat mine on a plate but it's good on a salad too and more filling.
