Instapot Philly Cheesesteak

Have I mentioned how much I love Instapot recipes? All of the ease of the crockpot, but in a fraction of the time. I’ve made Philly Cheesesteaks in the crockpot before, but I knew I wanted to shorten the time significantly and try it in my Instapot.

Additionally, I like to braise the beef, peppers, and onions for a few minutes before I placed them in the crockpot. With the Instapot having a sautéing feature, I also cut down on dishes. If you love Cheesesteak sandwiches, then you have to try this recipe. You could totally swap out the beef for thinly sliced chicken breast, or use red, yellow, or orange bell peppers instead of green. Make it your own.

  • electric pressure cooker


  • 2 lb skirt steak sliced thin
  • 2 large green bell peppers sliced thin
  • 1 large Vidalia onion sliced thin
  • 3 large garlic cloves minced
  • ¼ cup beef stock
  • 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 slices provalone cheese swiss cheese works well too
  • 6 Hoagie Rolls
  • butter


  • In the Instapot, drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil over the bottom and set it on the saute setting. Add in the onion and bell pepper slices and saute for a minute. Add in the minced garlic and saute for another 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Add in the sliced steak and stir occasionally while searing all of the sides of the steak. Pour in the beef stock (or broth if you don't have stock) as well as the Worscestershire sauce. Pressure cook on high for 12-15 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then rapid release the rest of the pressure.
  • While the beef and vegetables are steaming in the Instapot, take the hoagie rolls and butter each side on the inside. Place buttered side down onto a baking sheet and place in a preheated 350°F oven for 7 minutes to toast the hoagie rolls. Remove the baking sheet and place cheese on both sides of the inside of the hoagie roll. Fill with the steak and vegetable mixture. Serve immediately.

If you’d like to make this recipe gluten free, you could swap out the hoagie roll for bib lettuce and make it a Philly Cheesesteak lettuce wrap. To make this dairy free, omit the provolone cheese.

Hope y’all are having an amazing week. Stay safe, be kind, and hug your loved ones.
