If you find yourself craving pasta and sandwiches, this mash-up of Philly cheesesteak and keto ravioli is a win-win!
One of our most creative dishes!
For starters, let’s talk about keto ravioli. All you do is melt provolone cheese, top it with your fave filling, cover with a second slice of provolone, and then back in the oven to melt the two slices of cheese together around your filling. Easy, peasy!
Check out our original keto ravioli recipe.
Now, add Philly cheesesteak ravioli to the mix and it’s pure bliss. It’s like Philly cheesesteak was made to be turned into keto ravioli. Did you know that provolone cheese is what you traditionally use on the sandwich? Absolute perfection!
Is Philly cheesesteak keto?
The filling of Philly cheesesteak is definitely keto, but you have to ditch the bread. That said, you won’t even miss it when you’re eating thinly sliced ribeye with sautéed peppers and onions and melted provolone cheese. 🤤
I may be biased, but turning Philly cheesesteak into ravioli is a genius way to have all the same ingredients, just without the carby loaf of bread!

Philly Cheesesteak Ravioli:

- 24 slices provolone cheese
- Salt & pepper to taste
Cheese Sauce, optional:

Tips for making the best keto Philly cheesesteak ravioli:
- You can use whatever type of steak you like but I highly recommend ribeye for full flavor. It’s one of the best steaks for keto with all of its gorgeous marbling!
- Place your steak in the freezer for about 10 minutes before you’re ready to slice it. This makes it easier to get those thin, almost shaved pieces.
- Make sure you don’t over-melt the provolone cheese. It won’t hold your fillings very well if it’s too melty.
- I included an optional cheese sauce with this Philly cheesesteak ravioli recipe. It’s dangerously rich, like “eat it by the spoonful” yummy. But you could also use a keto-friendly alfredo sauce or just eat these plain. All options are tasty!
- You might have some leftover filling. If that’s the case, use it as a garnish, eat it plain, or make more keto ravioli! 😄
All the makings of a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, but in a clever keto format.
I know I’ve said this before, but simple meals are the best! This is one of those dinners that your family will think you spent hours making. In reality, you’ll spend less than an hour throwing this together. Nothing better than that!
Here’s what my Hip sidekick Jenna had to say about this keto Philly cheesesteak ravioli:
“OMG, these are SO good! If I could, I would eat these every night! There is just something so amazing about a ravioli made of cheese, but stuff it with Philly Cheesesteak ingredients and you’ve got the most amazing meal. That cheese sauce… it’s worth making extra to pour over anything and everything! I am in love with this recipe and how easy it was to make.”
