Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak (Whole30, Low Carb)

This Whole30-friendly Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak is an easy and delicious 30-minute weeknight meal you’ll want over and over again! 

Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak

I grew up in the east coast in a small suburban town in New Jersey. I do identify myself as a New Yorker because I spent 10 years there starting in college, but throughout all that time, I’ve made several trips to Philadelphia which was close and convenient enough to jump on a bus and go.

There, I’ve had countless number of Philly cheesesteaks (half of them sober) and they were freakin’ delicious. What’s not to love about thinly sliced steak and veggies covered in cheese all nestled in a bun?

These days, I avoid cheese and bread so I decided to make my own allergen-friendly version, and this Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak takes me right back to my college days. This version is also super easy because everything is baked in one pan, making the cooking and cleaning process a breeze without sacrificing on the flavor. My husband, who is the dishwasher in the house, loves sheet pan meals especially!

Keeping It Dairy and Gluten Free

Philly cheesesteaks are usually served with melted provolone cheese, but I decided to make a delicious and creamy cashew cheese to drizzle over the cooked meat and vegetables instead. The combination of textures and flavors is just so delicious and you won’t miss the dairy at all!

As for the bread, I don’t really miss that part so I just eat this Paleo Philly Cheesesteak alone (the filling is the best part, after all), but if you want, you can get gluten free bread or even tortillas to eat it like tacos. I really love Canyon Bakehouse hot dog buns or Siete Foods Tortillas.

Just because you are avoiding dairy, gluten, or any other food groups, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy delicious foods! You just gotta get a bit creative in the kitchen. Hope you enjoy this Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak, and please comment with your feedback because I love reading them.

    This is super pretty and what a great idea! I need to do more sheet pan meals to feed my growing boys. I love how this recipe is so quick for busy families on week nights. We do paleo meals often for supper, as I can’t avoid packing sandwiches to school for the kiddos. It’s how we achieve balance.

    That cashew cheese on top!!! So yummy! I love that this is so easy to make on one sheet pan, such a great idea!

    This is what food dreams are made of. We love Philly Cheesesteak flavors (but without all the carbs) – throwing them on a sheet is a brilliant solution!

    I’ve been craving philly cheesesteak fiercely recently, so thank you for this healthy version! I can’t WAIT to impress the hubby with this recipe!

    This was SO GOOD. I made it for dinner, my husband l’s first bite, he said “Oh my goodness, Lauren. This is amazing!! Well done.” So I’ll be making this all the time now. 🙂

    My grocery store didn’t have raw cashews! All I could get was roasted and salted. Will these still work?? I was thinking to just omit the salt from the sauce?

    Thanks so much!

      Yes, roasted cashews will work. I would just taste the sauce to adjust the salt afterwards.
