Philly steak bubble up

July 26, 2016

Yes another bubble up dish… why you ask?? Because I just can’t get enough of them πŸ˜‰ Don’t you just love a good philly steak sandwich… but hate all the points that come with it.. well this bubble up dish is the perfect compromise, the biscuits along with the steak and creamy garlic taste leaves you in philly steak heaven πŸ™‚ I am sure this can be a new family favorite.. Serves 6 at 8 smart points per serving.

Philly steak bubble up
Recipe type: Main meals
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
8sp/7pp per serving
  • 1- 7.5oz package pillsbury biscuits, one of the 4 value pack (if you can't find those buy the bigger packs and weigh out 7.5oz)
  • 10 oz cooked shredded steak (I used top sirloin)
  • 1 onion, diced (I used red onion)
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • ½ Tbsp flour
  • ⅔ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • Dried oregano & parsley
  • ⅔ cup light shredded mozzarella
  • 2 Tbsp light ranch dressing
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 9x13 casserole dish with non stick cooking spray.
  2. Cut each of your 10 small biscuits into 6 pieces each and layer on bottom of casserole dish. Pre-bake dough for 25 minutes.
  3. In a large frying pan cook your diced peppers and onion using a little cooking spray for 10 minutes. *Optional to add in mushrooms..
  4. In a small pan, melt your butter over medium heat, stir in diced garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add in your flour and mix well, let cook for 2 minutes. Add your milk and seasonings and stir often until sauce thickens, about 8-10 minutes..
  5. Once veggies are sauteed pour over top of your baked biscuit pieces, then layer your shredded steak.. You can cook the steak as you choose, I cooked mine in the crock pot on low in a little broth for 3-4 hours depending on size of steak, you should be able to shred it nicely, however if you want to save time you can grill the steak and cut into small pieces.
  6. Drizzle your garlic cream sauce evenly over your biscuits and steak mixture. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top, cover with foil and bake in oven for 15-20 minutes, check all biscuits are cooked.
  7. Drizzle with ranch dressing (I pipe mine from a small zip lock bag)
  8. Cut into 6 equal servings. Each serving is 8 smart points (7PP)

    Hi there, did you mean pre-bake biscuits for 5 min? Cuz I left the first batch for 25 and they burned bad! On the second try I left them for 5 then added the rest of the ingredients and it was sooooo yummy! Thanks for the recipe!!

      Hi Liz, no I pre-baked for 25 minutes, maybe your oven was too hot? Being that the steak is cooked I did’nt want it in the oven the whole time the biscuits were baking and have it dry out, so I had biscuits in for 25 min then added the meat topping.. either way I am glad it turned out for you πŸ™‚

      This happened to me too! I bake all the time though, so I know my oven doesn’t run hot. We still ate it and it was good except for the buscits. I’m planning to try to make it again and only prebaking the biscuits for 5 min.

      Hi Michaela, sorry I don’t know what to suggest for GF, I am not experienced with making things GF unfortunately, maybe reach out to Pillsbury and see if they can come out with a GF product?? I am sure others have asked so if there is enough asking then maybe they will πŸ™‚

    I haven’t been able to find the 4-pack of 7.5 oz biscuits and I don’t have a scale at home. Any idea how many of the bigger biscuits would be 7.5 oz? I’ve made the sloppy joe casserole (life-changing amount of amazingness!!) and am now obsessed with incorporating biscuits into my casseroles to be a little more filling!! Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    Dear Drizzle, I to am confused at the pre-bake for 25 min because at the end you bake it for another 20-25 min so thats a total of 45-50 min and on your recipe it says cook time 20 min. I am going to make it for supper tonight and I don’t want to have to throw the dish, even on the 7.5oz biscuits you only bake at 10-13 min with out cutting them into small pieces. Please help me to understand the baking time. Thank you. Lana

      Hi Lana, the pre-bake time is correct at 25 min and that is listed in the “preparation” time and then the cook time is the 20 minutes, I found the biscuits needed pre baking more because the dough will not cook as well once you load on the steak and toppings , you can lower the pre-bake time a little if your concerned about it being too much, ovens vary so I can only go off my oven

    Drizzle, we loved it, I baked the biscuits 16 min was perfect for us, next time I make it I am going to try pork, we are big pork eaters, I am going to use country ribs I always put them in my slow cooker and cook them for hours, I will watch any fat on them I usually cook quite abit and use some of it for another meal, and next time it will be for Philly Steak Bubble Up. Thank You for such a delicious receipe. Lana Oh we were surprized how the ranch dressing added to the taste. For any one has doubt on the ranch don’t, it was a perfect addition.

    We have tried many of these Bubble Ups. I made this tonight. Before I even ate it my mind was churning how to make a Ruben version, how to make a Cuban version… I’m in trouble over here.

      Hi you could play around with it a bit and use a different dressing, caesar maybe, or a garlic aioli type of sauce would be delicious!
