Steak Cheese Steak Quesadillas

Steak Cheese Steak Quesadillas are a delicious and satisfying dish that combines the flavors of a classic Philly cheesesteak with the convenience of a quesadilla. Here’s how to prepare them:


For the Steak:

  • 1 pound of thinly sliced ribeye steak (you can also use sirloin or flank steak)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for cooking

For the Quesadillas:

  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (you can use a blend of cheddar, Monterey Jack, or provolone)
  • Butter or cooking spray for grilling

Optional Toppings:

  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Sliced jalapeños
  • Guacamole


  1. Prepare the Steak Filling:
    • Heat a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat.
    • Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan and sauté the sliced onions and green bell peppers until they start to soften, about 3-4 minutes.
    • Add the minced garlic and continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
    • Push the vegetables to one side of the pan and add the thinly sliced steak to the other side.
    • Season the steak with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until it’s browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness. This should take about 5-6 minutes.
    • Once the steak is cooked, mix it with the sautéed vegetables in the pan, and remove it from the heat.
  2. Assemble the Quesadillas:
    • Heat a clean, large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.
    • Place one flour tortilla in the skillet.
    • Sprinkle a generous portion of shredded cheese evenly over the tortilla.
    • Spoon a portion of the steak and vegetable mixture over the cheese.
    • Top with another tortilla and press down gently.
  3. Cook the Quesadilla:
    • Cook the quesadilla for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla is crispy and golden brown, and the cheese is melted.
    • You can use a spatula to flip it over carefully.

  1. Repeat and Keep Warm:
    • Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas and filling to make more quesadillas.
    • To keep the quesadillas warm while you make the others, you can place them on a baking sheet in a warm oven (around 200°F or 93°C).
  2. Serve:
    • Once all the quesadillas are cooked, remove them from the oven if you used it to keep them warm.
    • Cut each quesadilla into wedges, like a pizza.
    • Serve hot with optional toppings like salsa, sour cream, sliced jalapeños, and guacamole on the side.
