This recipe for Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers is like the classic sandwich, but without all the carbs! An easy and filling meal that will please the whole family.
I am a sucker for a good cheesesteak sandwich, but sometimes they can be a little carb heavy with all that bread. These Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers have the same flavors, but without the carbs! Stuffed peppers always make for a great meal, and this version is loaded with cheese, steak, mushrooms and onions.
How do you make Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers?
I bake my peppers to soften them up a bit before I stuff them. You can use any color bell pepper you like, I went with a combo of red, orange and yellow, which tend to be sweeter than the standard green bell peppers. While the peppers are baking, I prepare the filling which is simply mushrooms, onions and steak. You can use your favorite cut of steak here. I used flank steak, but rib eye or sirloin would also be good bets. The steak needs to be sliced very thin before it goes in the pan. I partially freeze my whole steaks before slicing them, it makes it SO much easier to get ultra thin pieces.
A cheesesteak isn’t complete without plenty of cheese! Each pepper gets a double dose of provolone cheese for maximum flavor. The peppers take a quick trip under the broiler to get all that cheese melted and browned. A little sprinkling of parsley and you’ve got meaty, cheesy perfection.
Whether you’re watching your carbs or simply want a hearty meal, these Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers fit the bill! They’re so popular in my house that they’ve become part of our regular dinner rotation. I like to serve these stuffed peppers with a green salad for a complete meal.
