The key to a great sheet pan meal
Sheet pan meals are great, but what is the key to making a really good one, that allows all of the flavors and textures to shine? Even though everything cooks on one sheet pan, the key to a good meal is sometimes cooking the components in batches. This is the case for these sheet pan Philly cheesesteaks.
For this recipe, it is essential for the vegetables to cook first, before adding the beef to the sheet pan. This allows the vegetables to get soft and caramelized, and ensures that the beef does not overcook and become tough (no one wants tough steak!) Even though the components cook in stages, this still makes for a super easy meal, with minimal cleanup.
The best part of sheet pan meals is that they result in minimal dishes to clean afterwards; everything cooks on one sheet pan with parchment paper, which allows for minimal scrubbing and cleaning after. Simply crumble up the parchmant paper and toss it!

How to make this easy sheet pan meal
This recipe couldn’t be simpler! A little chopping and prep work, and then let the oven do all the work for you. Start out by preheating the oven to 400F. In the meantime, slice the onions and peppers. Arrange parchment paper on a sheet pan, and spray it liberally with non-stick cooking spray (olive oil or avocado oil spray work well here).
Arrange the vegetables on the sheet pan, and spray the tops with more cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of kosher salt, and fresh cracked pepper. Pop them in the oven for 30 minutes (check on the vegetables every so often, and toss them with tongs to ensure even cooking).
In the meantime, prepare the beef. Toss the beef with the garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, kosher salt, Worcestershire, and balsamic vinegar.
After the vegetables have cooked for 30 minutes, move them to one side of the sheet pan and add the marinated beef to the other side. Spread the beef out in an even layer. Increase the oven temperature to 425 and cook the beef and vegetables for another 20 minutes.
Remove the sheet pan from the oven, and add four slices of Swiss cheese to the top of the beef evenly. Increase the oven to broil and broil for 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and slightly golden brown.
Serve the beef and vegetables on your favorite toasted bread for the full Philly cheesesteak experience!
