Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do I Have To Make This On a Smoker or a Grill? 

No, you can make this on the stovetop, in the oven or even in a crockpot, but the smoky element won’t quite be there (it will still be table banging good though!). 

Do I Have To Precook the Hamburger, Peppers and Onions? 

Yes, you’ll have to precook those, otherwise, the hamburger might not get done and the peppers and onions might still be crunchy when it’s time to enjoy this dip! 

What If I Can’t Find the Roast Beef at the Deli Counter? 

You can always substitute all Lean Ground Beef for this recipe instead. 

Can I Use a Different Brand Of Mayonnaise? 

Yes, you can. Dukes simply has a depth of flavor that some other mayo’s don’t have. Hellmans, Aldi brand and Blue Plate are all good options. 

How Long Does This Last? 

It will last covered in the fridge for 5 days (but it will NEVER last that long before it is gobbled up!). 

Can I Freeze This Dip? 

It doesn’t freeze that well because when you thaw it back out, it wants to break. 

Besides, it’s so easy to make, you can alway make some more! 

What Do I Serve This With? 

An appetizer before a game day meal. 

Carry to a neighborhood potluck (there won’t be a single drop left). 

Serve with….

Crispy toasts

Pita chips

Pour into a Hawaiian Bread Bowl

Slider buns

ingredients in an aluminum pan

Tips and Tricks

  •  Add an 8oz box of sautéed mushrooms if you enjoy those on a Philly cheese steak sandwich.
  •  It’s fine to substitute onion powder for the onion if you are serving someone who doesn’t like onions. 1 small onion = 1 Tbs onion powder.
  •  You do not need to cook the peppers and onions completely till soft with the hamburger you just want to cook until the hamburger is done. This softens those vegetables enough so they aren’t crunchy in the dip. 
  • You want this dip to be loose but not soupy depending on the beef you purchase. You may need to add more or less of the Beef stock. Add that last when mixing and mix it until it is like a very loose paste. The cheese will melt and cause it to become looser during baking.
  •  This dish is great served on crostini’s or toast, we also enjoy it with pita chips
  •  Garnish with chopped green onion and serve pickled peppers on the side. 
  • If you can’t find the baby bell peppers, just use a single bell pepper of whatever color you prefer.
  • No bacon grease? Just use butter or vegetable oil instead. 
  • You’ll want to chop up the ground beef very fine (I show you how HERE). This is a dip, so it needs to be chopped up small enough for dipping.
  • Legend has it that Pat’s King of Steaks is the Original Cheesesteak.

PRO TIP: Go to the Deli Counter, ask how thick they can slice the Roast Beef and choose a very thick cut, then chop that at home in a rough chop for the perfect dip!
