How To Make Steak and Pasta
Step 1: Saute
Begin by heating the oil in a skillet and sauteeing the onions, pepper, and mushrooms until soft.
Step 2: Cook the beef
Add the thinly sliced beef to the pan along with the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until browned.
Step 3: Prepare the sauce
Whisk together the cornstarch, heavy cream, broth, and Worcestershire until combined. Pour over the steak.
Step 4: Cook the pasta
Add the pasta to the pan. Once it begins to boil, add the lid and reduce heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally.
Step 5: Add cheese and serve
Add cheese on top of the steak and pasta and stir. Then sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and let cook for 5 additional minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Tips for making One Pot Homemade Philly Cheesesteak Pasta:
- Don't fear the liquid. It looks like a lot. But it reduces and the pasta absorbs a good amount of it.
- Use the right pan. I like a nice deep saute pan or Le Creuset braiser instead of a deep pot.
- Stir often- especially once it's covered and simmering. If you don't the pasta will stick to the bottom of the pan and no one wants that.
- Buy the steak pre-sliced. Many stores sell thinly sliced beef for sandwiches- I like to get those when I am on a time crunch but I want Philly cheesesteak pasta. Work smarter, not harder.
Pro-tips for thinly sliced beef:
If you'll be slicing a steak yourself, place it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, and then use a very sharp knife to thinly slice against the grain.
Which cut of beef should I use to make this steak pasta recipe?
I typically get top round cutlets and cut them into thin slices, but you can also get a sirloin steak or top round and slice it yourself.
How long does this Philly cheesesteak pasta last?
This steak pasta recipe is best when served right away but will last up to 3 days covered in the refrigerator.
How do you reheat steak and pasta?
You can reheat individual portions in the microwave. Or you can reheat the steak and pasta in a pan over medium heat and add a splash of milk to help loosen it up and make it creamy.
