Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

One of the best parts about living in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area is the cheesesteaks… the amazing, delicious, best ever cheesesteaks.  You may think you’ve had a really good cheesesteak, but you’ll never know what you’re missing until you get one from Philly.  Where else would the Philly Cheesesteak get it’s name?

The only downside of all the cheesy, steaky deliciousness is the calories!  It’s hard to fit all that bread into my day without going over my calorie budget or barely eating the rest of the day.  So, when I saw this recipe for stuffed peppers on Pinterest, I knew I had to give it a try, with at least one small change.

I mean…. deli sliced roast beef?  Really?  I won’t get into the preservatives and such found in that, yuck.  Everyone knows the secret to a great cheesesteak is good beef.  Well, good bread, too, but that doesn’t apply to this recipe.

So, I replaced the deli sliced roast beef with some thin sliced ribeye.  Om nom nom!  I think you guys should all go make this right now!

While all that is going on, cut the tops off the peppers and hollow them out.  Arrange them in a baking dish and put one slice of cheese into the bottom of each.

    This was a great recipe! Worked really well the first time when I used red peppers and white cubanelle peppers. When I try it again, I think it might work better if I slice the red peppers lengthwise so that I can use my hands to eat it as an open-faced sandwich kind of thing. Otherwise, it’s too tall to fit in my mouth to fit in one bite. 😛

    Thanks for the recipe!

      Glad you enjoyed it! That’s a great idea about cutting them sideways. I’m definitely going to steal that tip from you 😉

      Thanks for stopping by!
