These Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers are a delicious low-carb spin on the classic sandwich and a tasty dinner idea you can prep ahead of time!
These Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers are the most delicious dinner idea, and they're a low carb way to get your fill of your fave sandwich while also sneaking some extra veggies into your diet. Anytime I can do a stuffed vegetable version of one of my fave foods I get so excited. Nothing like getting the flavours in while keeping the calorie count down!
I also love these Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers because they are easy to meal prep for the work week (surprise surprise, me making these for my weekly meal prep!)
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
4 green peppers, cut in half
1 sirloin steak
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
1/2 red pepper, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut green peppers in half and de-seed them. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil, season with salt and pepper and bake in a 9x13 dish covered with tin foil for 10 minutes.
Add remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large frying pan and heat over high heat until oil is smoking. Add steak and sear for 1 minute per side. Remove from heat and slice very thinly across the grain when cool enough to handle.
In same skillet, add mushrooms and cook until they start to release juices. Add onions and red pepper, sauteeing for 2-3 minutes until tender and seasoning with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, remove green peppers from oven. Divide steak slices and veggies among peppers then top with cheese and season with a little more salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove and serve!
