Oven Cheesesteak Hot Dogs Recipe
No need to wait for grilling season…take your hotdogs to whole new level by adding a layer of cheesesteak. That’s right, seasoned shaved steak, peppers, onions and lots of melting provolone cheese will have you seeing and tasting classic hotdogs in a delicious new light. Right in your oven.
This is a simple recipe folks…the hotdogs are stuffed into buns, skillet toppings added, then back to the hot oven for melting all that cheese. If you’ve got the gusto, eat em’ with your hands, but you might want to keep a knife and fork handy. If you love these, you’ll want to try our Oven Chili Cheese Dogs too!
My guys love them with a big handful of chips, and I add some fruit too, because after all that meat and cheese a little healthy doesn’t hurt.
How To Make This Oven Cheesesteak Hot Dogs Recipe
Start by spreading the buns with mustard and mayo, and pack the hotdogs into a foil lined pan for easy cleanup. If you over-fill your dogs like I do, you might need to use two pans!
Then season up that steak and saute with the onions, tossing with silicone tongs like a stir-fry as you cook. You can add the peppers with the steak, or put them on top of the cheese, or both if you like.
Layer the shaved steak and onions, cheese slices and peppers on top.
What is Shaved Steak?
Shaved steak is extremely thin slices of beef, cut across the grain of the meat. The beauty is with beef sliced this thin, it can come from any part of the steer and still be amazingly tender. It’s usually sold in pre-packaged flats in the meat case and is generally more affordable than whole cuts of steak.
You could buy a steak, partially freeze it, then cut it into paper thin slices yourself, but that’s hard on the hands. No need for all that drama if you go for the shaved steak.
Then into the oven, covered with foil, to heat the hotdogs and buns, melt the cheese and cook the peppers until they’re tender. Now you’re ready to serve these big boy sandwiches.
