Delicious Steak & Cheese Wraps
What makes the best steak & cheesesteak wraps? Using the absolute best cut of beef of course!
This is the first key to a good steak wraps. It is using the right cut of meat (skirt steak) and having it cut properly. Since the meat takes center stage here it is important to have a good quality cut. If you don’t see skirt steak at your butcher counter, ask your butcher if they have it on hand. Sometimes it isn’t readily available, but they are happy to get it for you for the future.
I buy my steak already shaved thin. Many butchers are happy to slice it for you, and some meat counters will already have it packaged that way. Thinly sliced skirt steak is the key to this fast cook time and still having tender steak.
If you aren’t able to have it shaved for you, then freeze the meat before cooking, and you’ll find a frozen steak much easier to cut thinly. I have a meat slicer on hand for making our own luncheon meats, and you could also use this for cutting your steak thinly.
Let’s Get Started

Talk about the ultimate comfort food. The same great flavor, a lot less bread, means fewer calories and happier you. Whether you are serving this for lunch, game day snack or dinner, you are going to enjoy them.
First, we will start off with a bit of oil, steak, peppers, onions, and of course some seasoning in a non-stick skillet. You can not have a steak & cheese wrap without cooked peppers and onions.
With the steak cut so thinly, it cooks fast and easily. If you like your bell peppers and onions a bit more caramelized, you may want to start cooking them for a few minutes before adding your steak to the pan. I actually prefer mine cooked longer.
Man OH! Man…. does this look amazing.
For these steak wraps, I do drop the seasoning, sauce, and cheese directly into the skillet to melt. Like Emeril Lagasse would say “BAMM”.
Having a non-stick pan is key for this step. (did I mention lots of cheese is involved). If you prefer, you can just top the meat and vegetable mixture with cheese in the tortilla, but I think mixing together really combines the flavors.
However you slice it, you gotta try it. These are an easy, hearty weeknight meal or quick and easy lunch idea that the whole family will enjoy!
It fills you up! And if it were up to me I would eat this every day, but I’m holding back.
