About this recipe: One of my favourite sandwiches when travelling in the US is the Philly cheese steak, a decadent mix of steak, cheese and loveliness. I decided I would do my own twist on it and make it as a wrap.

Serves: 4 

  • 750g rump steak
  • 2 onions
  • 1 red pepper
  • 5 to 6 mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons oil (e.g. rapeseed oil)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcester sauce
  • 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 (125g) pack buffalo mozzarella
  • mature Cheddar cheese, to taste (I used around 250g)
  • 8 large wraps
  • 1 small tub soured cream

Prep:25min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. Set out all your ingredients so it is easy to get started.
  2. Cut the steak into very very thin slices. I put my steak in the freezer for half a hour before preparing it so it is easier to slice.
  3. Finely chop the onions, red pepper and the mushrooms in strips.
  4. In a large frying pan add 1 tablespoon of oil and let it get hot. Throw in your onions, peppers, mushrooms and cook them for around 2 minutes. Now add the Worcester sauce, teriyaki sauce, 2 teaspoons of smoked paprika and mustard. Cook for a further 3 minutes until the onions are starting to brown. When ready remove them from the pan, put them in a bowl.
  5. In your bowl of cooked onions, peppers and mushrooms break up the mozzarella into small pieces and mix them in.
  6. Clean the frying pan so it does not burn when cooking the meat.
  7. Add 1 teaspoon of oil to the frying pan and get it very hot. Add the steak to the pan. I normally do this in 3 to 4 small batches so it cooks quickly. If you put it all in the oil gets cold and the steak boils rather than fries. Cook each batch for around 1 to 1 1/2 minutes; the meat should brown a little but remain red.
  8. Grate your Cheddar.
  9. Don't bother to clean the frying pan again, all the meats cooking juices will add to the flavour. Add the onions, red pepper, mushrooms and mozzarella into the frying map and cook for around 1 minute.
  10. Cook the onion and mozzarella mix for around 2 minutes. The mozzarella will start to melt into the sauce. Remove everything from the pan and keep in a bowl.
  11. In add the meat and the Cheddar cheese into the frying pan and cook for around 2 minutes until the cheese in melting.
  12. Warm your wraps up to make them easier to roll. As you make each wrap smother one tablespoon of soured cream all over the wrap. Add a good dollop of the onion mozzarella mix in a line from the up of the wrap to about half way down.
  13. Next to the onions put some of the cheesy steak. If there is some liquid in the frying pan drizzle this over the mix also...That's cheesy magic!
  14. Now roll up into a wrap. (I turn up the bottom then roll over the filling, this stops the filling falling out the bottom). As you can see we had ours with a few skinny chips.


I love the same recipe but with a good hot of chilli, if you add 1 to 2 red chillies to the onion mozzarella mix AFTER you have cooked it the first time, it is lovely. Also it is great with 4 to 5 cloves of garlic it.
