📖 Course:

  • Dinner, Lunch

🍳 Cuisine:

  • American, Italian


  • 1 pound ribeye steak, sliced extremely thin
  • 6 slices of melty cheese (Options: White American, Deli Provolone, or Cheez Whiz)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped (optional)

  4. Cook the Steak: Remove onions and increase the burner to medium-high heat. Add the steak, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and about 20 turns fresh black pepper. Cook for about 3 minutes, turning occasionally. Add onions back when the steak is halfway done.

What is chip steak good for?

Chip steak is highly versatile and is particularly good for quick and easy meals due to its thin cuts. It’s excellent for making sandwiches like Philly cheesesteaks, where it can be quickly cooked and layered with cheese and onions. It also works well in various recipes such as tacos, breakfast sandwiches, and stir-fries. Its thin cut means it cooks quickly, making it a convenient option for busy meal times.

What cut of meat is chip steak?

Chip steak is typically made from a thin cut of the beef round, particularly the top round. The beef round is a lean cut of meat from the rear leg of the cow. The top round, specifically, is known for being leaner and less tender compared to cuts from the front of the cow, like the rib and loin cuts. Chip steak is usually thinly sliced or pounded, making it suitable for quick cooking, and it can be tenderized through marination or mechanical tenderization.

Is chip steak tender?

Chip steak is not as tender as cuts from the rib or loin due to its lower fat content and more muscular grain. However, its thinness can compensate for its lack of tenderness, and proper cooking methods, such as quick searing or grilling, can help preserve its juiciness and flavor. Additionally, marinating chip steak can help break down some of the muscle fibers, making it more tender and flavorful.

What goes with steak & chips?

Steak and chips is a classic combination, but you can elevate this dish with a variety of sides and condiments. Here are a few options:

  • Vegetables: Grilled or roasted vegetables, like asparagus, mushrooms, or tomatoes, add color and nutrition.
  • Salads: A crisp, refreshing salad with a tangy vinaigrette can balance the richness of the steak and chips.
  • Sauces: A flavorful sauce, such as peppercorn, béarnaise, or chimichurri, can enhance the steak’s flavor.
  • Breads: A side of garlic bread or a fresh baguette can complement the meal nicely.
  • Wine or Beer: A glass of red wine, like a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Shiraz, or a rich stout or ale, can be a delightful accompaniment.
  • Desserts: Finish the meal with a light dessert, like a fruit sorbet or a lemon tart, to cleanse the palate.

Remember, the key is to balance the richness of the steak and chips with lighter, more refreshing sides, beverages, and desserts.
