A non traditional lasagna recipe made Philly Cheesesteak Style! Loaded with tender steak, peppers, onions, ricotta, over 5 cheeses, AND a creamy homemade sauce!
Recently I asked my readers to pick this years recipe. I got a HUGE response. A lot of you asked for casseroles, some asked for Philly cheesesteak recipes, while others asked for more slow cooker recipes. I will try my very best to answer as many request as I possibly can this year ( You can still leave a request here!), but I’m going to combine the casserole & Philly cheesesteak recipe for this post, and share my recipe for homemade Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna!
For this recipe I use Beef Chuck Flank Iron Steak. Depending on where you get the steak, it may cost a tad bit more than other steak, but I ensure you that it is worth it. This steak is super tender, and juicy, unlike other cuts.
All of the cheese used in this lasagna can be found at you local grocery store. I got all of my cheeses from my local Krogers store, from the deli. However, you can find them at other stores as well such as Safeway, Wincos, and etc….
This recipe may seem a tad bit intimidating, however it is quite easy. If anything, it’s time consuming, but worth every minute.
Try making this Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna for your next get together, or Sunday dinner!
