Philly Cheese Steak Cups

Recipe provided by the Certified Angus Beef® brand

Serve Philly Cheese Steak Cups at your party and watch them disappear! This easy appetizer recipe has beefy, cheesy deliciousness packed into a buttery crescent roll crust. Serves 12 appetizer portions.


2 (8-ounce) Certified Angus Beef ® top sirloin steaks
2 teaspoons canola or vegetable oil
1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 bell pepper, yellow or red, seeded and cut into thin strips
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Standard 12-count muffin tin
Non-stick cooking spray
all-purpose flour, for dusting
2 tubes (8-ounce each) crescent dough sheets
8 slices provolone cheese, cut into thirds

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat. Sear top sirloin steaks 2-3 minutes per side to develop a deep brown crust; transfer to cutting board.
  2. Turn the pan heat down to medium and sear peppers and onion, stirring often until slightly soft and browned on edges, about 3 minutes; transfer to a mixing bowl. Cut steaks into super thin 1/2-inch wide ribbons; toss with peppers and onion and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Lightly spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Lightly dust work surface with flour. Lay out crescent dough and cut each into 6 squares then round corners. Press discs into muffin tin and place a piece of provolone at the bottom of each dough cup.
  4. Discard excess liquid from steak mixture; evenly divide within each dough cup and top with remaining provolone.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes, rotate pan and bake 5-6 more minutes until dough is golden brown and cheese is bubbly on top. Cool steak cups at least 10 minutes in tin before serving.
