What is the best cheese to use in this dip?

You can use a variety of cheese in your dip. Common cheeses used are a mixture of provolone, mozzarella or white cheddar and cream cheese. Some add a little Velveeta for a creamier texture. I used a combination of shredded mozzarella and provolone along with cream cheese.

Authentic Philly cheese steak sandwiches are made from a thinly sliced ribeye. Leftover ribeye would be a perfect choice if you have any! Simply dice it into small cubes. Any leftover beef roast or steak would work. Just make sure it’s finely diced. Alternatively, you may make it with ground beef.

Because we were going to eat the Cheese Steak Dip immediately I made it in a cast iron skillet in the oven. For a party, I would double the recipe and make it/keep it warm in a slow cooker for guests to enjoy.
