Step 1: Getting It All Together

Tip #1 Make sure the meat to onion to pepper ratio is perfect.

First start by making the pineapple ketchup. Place crushed pineapples into pot on medium heat. Then add in garlic and let it cook for about 5 minutes. After five minutes add in the rest of the remaining sauce ingredients and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat place into container in freezer to chill before use.

Tip #2 Taste all the elements as you go!

Next take a medium sized aluminum tin and place on grill on high heat. Coat the bottom with olive oil and add in onions, peppers, and garlic. Grill on high heat until softened. While veggies are cooking start to make provolone cheese sauce. Make a roux by melting butter in saucepan and whisking in four until it makes a thick paste. Next add in about 3 cups of milk and whisk until thick. Add in 1/4 lb of provolone cheese, salt, paprika, garlic powder. Set aside on low heat.

Tip #3 Knowing how to make a béchamel is key to any basic cheese sauce!

Now back to the grill. Add in the roast beef to the cooked veggies and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mix in the cheese sauce and let it cook for about 5-10 minutes. Drizzle the rolls with olive oil and toast while meat is cooking.

Step 2: Assembly and Suggestions

Time to assemble. Place rolls down and stuff with a good amount of cheese steak. Next slather on some of the sweet and spicy pineapple sauce. Serve!


  • Make sure the roast beef is thin sliced.
  • Great for tailgates with a nice cold beer.
  • Make the sauce ahead of time for a quick sandwich.

I tend to skip past the steak sandwich recipes, thinking 'why the heck does a fine steak need to be encased in bread?' Having tried this though, it's well worth putting ingredients aside for!
Went down a treat, thank you :-)

That looks absolutely delicious. The pineapple sauce seems like an interesting addition. Thanks for sharing!

My favorite cheesesteak is mushrooms and onions. I like it with American cheese too, no ketchup. Sometimes frier peppers are OK too. If the rolls don't come from Philly send it back! I get mine imported fresh from there daily. I have ah, connections, if you know what I mean. It might be better if you don't know. Today I mixed it up and had a grilled burger on a Philly roll.

Yum. I'm addicted to pineapple so I like that you used it in your sauce.
