Steak and Cheese Stuffed Peppers

Steak and cheese has to be one of the most delicious sandwiches around, but unfortunately most steak and cheese sandwiches contain over 1,000 calories. Yikes. So today let’s make a lightened up version using flavorful lean steak, sauteed onions and mushrooms, and a bell pepper in place of the rolls. Delicious, low carb, gluten free, and perfect for a meal or appetizer. I made these this weekend as a game day snack and they disappeared within minutes. If you can’t find sandwich steaks you could also use lean flank steak, fajita steak, or even deli roast beef. Sliced chicken would be great as well for chicken cheese steaks.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb. thin cut, lean sandwich steak
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 small sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 peppers, seeded with tops cut off
  • 4 thin slices light provolone, Swiss, or mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the steak into thin strips. Toss with Worcestershire, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Heat 1/2 tbsp. olive oil over medium high heat. Add the steak and cook for 4-6 minutes until just cooked through. Remove and set aside.
  4. Add remaining oil to the pan (1/2 tbsp.) and add the onions and mushrooms. Cook until tender, about 4-6 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the steak to the onions and mushrooms.
  5. Stuff the steak, onion, and mushroom mixture into each pepper. Top with 1 slice cheese. Place in a baking dish and cook for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. Note: If you like a softer pepper, you will want to roast or microwave them first to soften them, otherwise the pepper will have a lot of crunch.
