What Ingredients Do I Need to Make Keto Stuffed Peppers?
- 1 lb. shaved steak
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 TBSP Garlic Salt
- 1 TBSP Black Pepper
- 3 Bell Peppers, cut in half and de-seeded
- 6 Slices Provolone or Mozzarella Cheese
- NOTES: *2 TBSP Teriyaki Sauce
How Do I Make Philly Cheesesteak Peppers?
Preheat the oven to 350°.
In a skillet, cook the shaved steak.
Once steak is nearly done, add in onions, garlic salt and pepper. You want to cook the onions until they are soft and translucent.
In a 9×13 baking dish place the bell peppers in the dish. Add in the steak mixture.
Top the steak filled pepper topping with cheese of your choice. I like mozzarella as it’s a little creamier than provolone. Provolone is traditional so that can be used as well!
TIP: Slicing the back of the bell pepper will allow it to sit flat.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted. TIP: To get a golden brown color on the cheese, broil on low for a few minutes.
To finish the peppers and make a presentation, top with fresh chopped parsley.
