Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

I blame Pinterest for many things. Off the top of my head, here are a few. I can never again guiltlessly purchase the little tear apart Valentines and send my children to school with them. Every minor holiday must be celebrated as an over-the-top extravaganza with special breakfast food and remarkably adorable after school snacks. Supplies for more crafts than I ever imagined existed are now cluttering up my house. Let’s be real. The craft supplies are relegated to my closet after I realize post-purchase that I am not now, nor will I ever be crafty. I despise everything in my closet because none of it is perfectly coordinated down to shoes, bag and belt. I obsessively want to work out and try the twelve cleaning tips I found this morning. There are at least ten things I do wrong as a mother every single morning before school (according to all the amazing parenthood books Pinterest has introduced me to). And don’t get me started on the change in my children’s birthday parties since Pinterest took over my life. That being said…. that darn red swirly P holds my heart forever because it gives me recipes like this one.
Perfectly succulent strips of steak swimming together with sweet caramelized onions and rich sautéed mushrooms all stuffed into a gorgeous pepper sandwiched between two gloriously melted pieces of provolone. (food happiness sigh) Look at me from the side. Does this delightfully dripping cheese make me look fat?
You could not stuff more deliciousness into these peppers if you tried. Trust me. I piled them as high as I could with all that amazing flavor.
And they are easy. Oh so easy. You can even make them with deli roast beef like the original (wildly successful) pin says to. I didn’t chop my peppers in half – only sliced a thin piece of each to leave more room in each one for meat and cheese. Because, if there’s anything I’ve learned from Pinterest, it’s that more (of everything and anything) is ALWAYS better. Enjoy!
Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers
adapted from Peace Love and Low Carb
1 lb Thinly Sliced Sirloin Steak (or you can use deli roast beef)
8 Slices Provolone Cheese
4 Large Green Bell Peppers
1 Medium Sweet Onion
1 pound White Mushrooms
3 Tbs. Butter
3 Tbs. Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper – to taste
Slice a thin piece off each pepper lengthwise, remove ribs and seeds.
Slice onions and mushrooms.  Saute over medium heat with butter, olive oil, and a little salt and pepper.  Saute until onions and mushroom are nice and caramelized.  About 25-30 minutes. Salt and pepper the steak and saute in a little olive oil until just not pink. About 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400*
Add steak to the onion/mushroom mixture and stir to combine.
Line the inside of each pepper with a slice of provolone cheese.
Fill each pepper with meat mixture until they are overflowing.
Top each pepper with another slice of provolone cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until the cheese on top is golden brown.

  1. Wow this looks amazing, I have had stuffed peppers before but nothing like this. I will definitely have to try this. It also looks like it would go great with a beer. If you are looking for great recommendations on great beer follow my blog for the best.

  3. Hi there, just popped over to let you know that your link to Food on Friday: Childhood Favourites was featured in my Need Some Inspiration? Series today. Cheers

  4. We are watching our carbs so thought to try these. I used left over italian beef in them and they were delicious and very easy to make. We are having them again when company comes over.

  5. These look amazing! How do you think they would freeze if I wanted to make them ahead, and just thaw them to bake later? Thanks!

    1. I’ve never frozen peppers before, so I’m really not sure. I’d be interested to hear how that turns out if you try it!
