Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

7 Aug

I know in a bid to make healthier food choices many people are jumping on the low carb wagon. I saw a similar recipe online and tweaked it to suit my families taste.  Keep reading to see their reaction and to get a printable recipe.

What you’ll need.
In a large skillet heat butter and oil.
Caramelize the veggies

Remove pepper shells from oven and pour out excess water in each shell.

Place a slice of Provolone cheese at the bottom of each pepper.
(One left cheese less for my son who sometimes doesn’t like cheese)
Fill each pepper with filling.

Top each with another slice of Provolone.

 Place in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes and voila! Cheesesteak
                    stuffed peppers. And the verdict is………………..

Thumbs up for the cheese less wonder.

And an ‘eh’ from the Broukie Bear. Hubby really liked it but he missed
the bread.  I really enjoyed it and I will be making this again!
*Prebaking the green peppers allows them the chance to become a little more tender but it also allows some of the moisture to cook out. This prevents it from being mushy and soggy.
*Salt draws moisture out of the onions and mushrooms and waiting to salt the veggies at the end of cooking allows the veggies to caramelize quicker.
I hope you enjoy!

    I’m on an extremely strict lifelong diet because of a genetic health disorder, but it does look delicious. I might be able to take some of the basic concepts and adapt them to my own dietary requirements.

    It’s interesting that you call them peppers. In New Zealand we call them capsicums. Whatever we call them, I love them.

      I love it! I had no idea they could be called by a different name. I might use it just to throw people off a bit.
      I am so glad you stopped by! I hope you are having a very blessed day!

        That will be interesting!
        Thanks, Rebecca. Always blessed, no matter what the circumstances. 🙂

    Looks delicious, and it looks like your kids like it too. I do a lot of cooking with peppers and mushrooms too. Lately I have started experimenting with different vegetables; today I cooked an artichoke for the first time in my life. I had to ask the lady in the produce department at Wegman’s how to cook it.

      I haven’t been brave enough to try cooking artichoke yet. Is it as hard as I think it might be?
      I am so glad you stopped by! I really enjoy your blog!

        It’s really not that hard; I steamed it in a small amount of water, in a pot, and then cut it up. I saved the water, because I figured it has vitamins and good stuff in it. Artichokes are supposed to be very good for you, so I wanted to try this.
