These Jalapeno Popper Philly Cheesesteak Sliders put a Texas twist on a Philly favorite sandwich by adding a jalapeno cream cheese spread on the traditional Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, and then miniatured the whole thing to turn it into an appetizer slider sandwich.
These Jalapeno Popper Philly Cheesesteak Sliders start with King’s Hawaiian rolls, round steak cut into thin slices, jalapeno cream cheese spread (I use Philadelphia brand), provolone cheese (or American cheese if you prefer), onion, red and green bell peppers, mushrooms, and then butter, garlic, jalapeno mustard, and Worcestershire sauce for the buttery sauce to pour over the top.
Start by cooking the strips of round steak in a skillet.
Then in the same pan as you cooked the steak, sauté the vegetables, including the onions, red and green bell peppers, and mushrooms.
Separate the tops and bottoms of the Hawaiian rolls, and place the bottom half of the Hawaiian rolls into an 11 x 7 casserole dish, (or a 9 x 13 baking dish if you don’t have one.) Now for the Jalapeno Popper portion of this appetizer sandwich, spread the jalapeno cream cheese over the bottom halves of the Hawaiian rolls.
Next layer the strips of steak over the top of the jalapeno cream cheese.
Layer the sautéed onions, peppers, and mushrooms over the sliced steak.
Layer with 7 slices of provolone cheese.
Spread more jalapeno cream cheese on the top halves of the Hawaiian rolls and place the rolls on top of the provolone cheese.
In a separate small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave, and then add the minced garlic, jalapeno mustard, and Worcestershire sauce, and brush the butter sauce over the top of the Jalapeno Popper Philly Cheesesteak Sliders before covering them with foil and baking at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Then uncover them and bake for 10 minutes more, or until the cheese has melted.
When you pull these Jalapeno Popper Philly Cheesesteak Sliders out of the oven and slice them, you have a wonderful savory, spicy, melty cheese covered Philly Cheesesteak slider sandwich appetizer with a Texas jalapeno cream cheese kick. I recommend making a double batch of these because they will go fast!
