Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

Dinners, Recipes

In Philly, we stuff our peppers with cheesesteak.

What you need:

  • 1 lb. strip steak (I just bought the kind at the store that’s already sliced for this very reason)
  • 4-6 peppers, the bigger the better
  • A slice of provolone cheese for every pepper you have
  • 1-1 1/2 yellow onions
  • 6 oz. mushrooms
  • S&P to taste
  • Tomato sauce (optional)

1. Preheat the oven to 400. slice your peppers in half and gut them. Place in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 20-25 mins.

2. Slice up your onions and mushrooms and saute together until just cooked through. Cook your steak in separate pan and season with S&P. Combine the onions mushrooms and steak together and leave on simmer if finished before your peppers.

3. When your peppers are done, line the inside of each with half a slice of cheese. Fill each pepper with the steak and veggies and add a little tomato sauce if desired. Top each pepper with another half slice of cheese and pop back in the oven for 15 mins.

4. Enjoy your philly stuffed peppers =)
