The page I took this original recipe from called these “Philly” Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers… However, being a native Philadelphian I cannot call something that doesn’t involve the soft and delicious Amoroso Roll a “Philly cheesesteak”… In order to avoid committing blasphemy against my favorite city in the entire universe we’ll keep their name out of it 🙂 That being said, these things are pretty damn good considering how healthy they are. I was pleasantly surprised when I wanted more. Some of the original reviews said the peppers were “watery” after baking them but I didn’t find that to be a problem. These are very cheesy (although you really only use 1 slice of cheese per pepper) and the sautéed sweet onions are to die for. The original recipe includes mushroom but since I don’t touch anything that has so much as a hint of mushroom I omitted that ingredient. I will however provide the link to the original recipe at the end so if you want to add them you’ll have access to that recipe.
Serves: 3 (2 per serving.) Calories: 256 (this changes if you use more or less cheese.)
– 1o oz. sliced roast beef, cut into thin strips
– 1-2 pkg. of provolone cheese (about 8-10 slices), this depends on how much cheese you want to use. I only needed 1 package.
– 3 large green bell peppers
– 1 large sweet onion, chopped
– 3 tbsp. olive or canola oil
– 1 tbsp. minced garlic
– salt and pepper to taste
1.) Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
2.) Cut peppers in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and ribs.
3.) Sauté onions seasoned with salt and pepper (to your taste) until transparent, approximately 8-10 mins.
4.) Add roast beef strips and cook for an additional 8-10 minutes
5.) Line the inside of each pepper with 1/2 or 1 whole piece of provolone cheese (Or you could eliminate this step and just put the cheese on top to of the peppers save calories. The amount of cheese you use depends on how many calories you want to eat. I did 1/2 piece on the inside)
6.) Fill each pepper with the onion/beef mix until filled to the top.
7.) Lay 1/2 or 1 whole piece of provolone over top each of the peppers.
8.) Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.
