what is jarred cheese sauce?

Is it possible to substitute dream whip for the frozen whipped topping? It is not available here in Costa Rica. thanks

Are you sure you have the correct recipe? No frozen whipped topping here.

This is a great comfort food recipe and perfect for when it's a little chilly outside because it'll stick to your bones and keep you warm. The ingredients minus the pasta would make a wonderful wrap or sandwich on your favorite roll. I don't think I'd change anything about this recipe...but I may try using Reames egg noodles instead to sop up all of that cheesy goodness!

Why not make your own cheese sauce using a white sauce recipe and adding cheddar cheese??? Cheez Whiz is way too salty as are most processed foods.

Hi there! If you prefer, you can make our Easy Cheese Sauce right at home.

This is yummy! I love cheesesteaks to begin with, so this pasta dish is totally right up my alley. We've had good success with both the cheddar cheese soup as well as the Ragu cheddar sauce, I know that Cheez Whiz is the preferred cheese sauce for this, but it's always struck my wife and I as being a bit too much on the salty side for our tastes. We tried this dish with some garlic egg noodles that we picked up at an Amish store, and it was really good.

I am not really a big fan of cheese whiz, as it is mostly oil and has a lot of salt in it. The ragu cheddar sauce is very thin. There are a ton of recipes online, so I might try to make my own sauce. Other than that looks like a great recipe to try. It reminds me of a cross between the flavors of a fajita and macaroni and cheese - two of my favorite things!

Could this be done in a large skillet on the stove top as a skillet dinner? It sounds good!

Hi there! Yes, the Test Kitchen believes that this can be made in a large skillet on the stove top. :) Enjoy!

This was very good! I've never used the Campbell's cheese sauce but it worked well in this recipe. I also sprinkle the top lightly with panko bread crumbs for a crispy top. I'm crazy about panko! And I served it with diced green onion on top too.

BeckySue, I've found French's Fried Onion Rings is great on top of many dishes... I just put onto top during the last 10-15 minutes of baking

Ragu makes a cheese sauce

can cube steak be used?

Yes, you can use cube steak, but be sure it's pounded first and then, sliced thin. Enjoy!

what do they mean by " 15 ounce cheese sauce" . Please provide a brand name or some other more identifying info. I went to the grocery store and they gave me a blank look when I asked where the jarred cheese sauce was. Thanks so much !

They actually directed me to the Campbell soup aisle and told me to use Campbell's Cheddar Cheese soup

Hi there! In this recipe we used a product called Cheez Whiz by Kraft. It is available in a glass jar and can be found at most grocery stores. Enjoy!

could this be adapted to the crockpot for the working families?

Yes, this can be made in your slow cooker. First, you'll need to brown the steak in a skillet, then add everything into your slow cooker with a 1/2 cup of water. You do not need to pre-cook the noodles - they will become mushy if you do. Cook on LOW heat for 6 to 7 hours, or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Enjoy!

That's a good idea to make this in the crock pot! I would pound the meat to tenderize it or slice it sooner just to make sure it's not tough because the noodles won't take as long as big chunks of meat.

I will be making this with only 2 simple substitution, I will use chicken because my family doesn't eat steak, and I will make my own cheese sauce, but the basic recipe will remain the same. My simple question is can people rate a recipe when they change practically everything in it to suit them and still call it the same recipe??

strange that you would as a substitute question when your first statement is substitute?

That's what I thought when I read the comment, too, LOL!

I don't see anywhere on here where i luv 2 cook RATED this recipe. But details are immaterial to those who only want to smart off.

This recipe looks absolutely delish, would not spoil it by using velveeta processed crap, looking at all the variations and things were meant to be changed then I guess this or other recipes wouldn't be what they are!

if you don't like cheese sauce in a jar make your own

Doesn't the steak get tough after baking?

To keep your steak from becoming tough, make sure to use sirloin steak and cut it thin. Enjoy!

What a great and easy peasy meal!! I added some garlic and even my husband said we can even add broccoli to this..He's not even a broccoli fan!! lol...I did not use the cheese in a jar i find that to be a little salty to my liking, i used cheddar cheese dip instead..Next time I"m going to add green peppers, a hogey steak and cheese casserole? You bet!! .It sure is a filling meal and I love leftover night, heat and serve..Thank you!

I made this last night for our family of 7. I tweaked it with what I had on hand... ground beef with rotini noodles. I made the cheese sauce using a pound of Velveeta melted in the microwave for five minutes with a 1/2 cup of whole milk, 2 tsp ground mustard, and a few dashes of hot sauce. I also added in some chopped broccoli to replace the bell peppers and the kids went to town. Everybody was commenting how great it smelled! This is going in the family cookbook for many more repeats. With just a few ingredients, Mr. Food recipes are so quick, easy, and delicious. Just what us busy moms need! Thanks for doing this service!

This sounds tasty and easy, and I plan on making it very soon. How about substituting a can of Cheddar Cheese soup for the cheese sauce? As for the bell peppers, I plan on using one green and one red because that's what I have in the fridge.

Can't find nice cheese sauce in Ireland. What do you suggest to use in this recipe?

I just made my own like I was making homemade Mac n cheese. Melt butter and flour together. Add milk and then I use shredded cheese or cubes. Cheddar, sharp, monetary jack. Cheddar is the base and I add some of whatever we have. You will together. Don't milk.burn. can use double broiler. I just estimate my measurements but can find easy cheese sauce recipes

If you make your own cheese sauce, cook it on low heat and stir almost constantly until thickened, and it won't burn. Home made cheese sauce is so very much better than anything bought and especially using processed cheese food like velveeta.

Does anyone know why red peppers cost twice as much as green ones? Why can't I comment without a rating for a recipe I haven't tried yet?

Red peppers are ripe thus having to leave them on the plant longer and more work

You can comment, there is a "I haven't tried this yet" button which will allow you to comment, I just did it.

My family loved this dish , it was very easy to make also .. Only lasted in my home for 2 days .

Why is there no nutritional information? how many servings are in this recipes?


If YOU need to know the nutritional values of this recipe it is YOUR job to figure it out. You people that want something done but DON'T want to do it yourself are the reason this whole country is going to hell in a handbasket.

meatandtaters: There is no reason to be so cranky about asking for nutritional information. Many sites on the internet (please take the time to look for sites yourself) provide this information for recipes in their database. These recipe sites are free too. Nutritional information is very handy to have, especially if you or someone you cook for is on a special diet. It is not unreasonable to request or to expect to find nutritional information included with a recipe on a recipe site.

I agree with you. Most sites do include nutritional info but I'm not adverse to using recipes that don't have them. All you have to do is estimate knowing how much is in the ingredients you use.

why so upset, it all depends on the kind of cheese you use or the amount of noodles, it could be reduced for a family of 2 or increased for a family of 8 or 12.... and what is a serving, 1/2 cup, or 1 1/2 cup, or maybe for a big eater 2-3 cups.... what if you use whole wheat noodles or glutton free??? it all depends on YOU for the nutritional info and the servings...

Unfortunately, I have found that some people on recipe sites don't know very much about cooking and unless they get a step by step instruction sheet, can't do it. Impossible to do for just the reasons you stated LostintheUSA. Too many variables to consider giving complete ingredient contents for each individual person. Not to mention, that unless you're baking desserts and breads, cooking isn't a's what you want to use.

That's what I said. And something that is cooked in a 9 x 13 dish and only serves 4 is going to be one whoppin BIG serving.

I have made this for my family for years. Now that my kids are on there own they are making this for their familys.

I like diced peppers so I would dice them. As for the cheese sauce, I've seen Philly Cheese Steak Places in Philly on the Food Network and they use Velvetta or something similar. It's usually very creamy and smooth. That's what I would use.

Instead of the caned cheese use Velveteen, any cheese that u can from the dairy, like Pepper Jack, add chopped onions, some japolenoas, add bread or panko crumbs or anything that looks good in the st

If you mean is processed just like the stuff in the jar.

Home made cheese sauce is still the best and you can control the sodium yourself...processed food is crap and that includes velveeta, in my opinion.

I love cheese steak. This looks easy to make, and I will try this very soon.

Sounds yummy! I'd only make it once in a while, tho, because this will blow my diet sky high.

I would also use Velveeta and put in mushrooms.. YUM
