Can I start off by saying how amazing these Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers were? I mean, how could you go wrong with steak and cheese?
So, I’m not from Philly, I’ve never been to Philly, and I have no plans to go to Philly…so if this is not an authentic representation of a Philly cheesesteak, I’m sorry!
I think I did a pretty good job, though!
HOW TO MAKE PHILLY CHEESESTEAK STUFFED PEPPERS
Let’s get down to this Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers business!
I picked up 3 bell peppers from the produce section and I cut them in half and took out the seeds. You could do all green if you like, but I like the sweetness of the orange and red peppers.
I put them in a baking dish, covered it with foil, and baked them for 20 minutes at 325F.
While those were cooking, I sautéed my onions and mushrooms until they were soft.

Then I pushed all of those to one side and I added my sliced steak. I used sirloin steak and I sliced it thinly against the grain. I browned the steak for a few minutes, then I mixed the mushrooms and onions in with the steak.
Your peppers should be finished now so its time for the cheese! I put slices of provolone in the bottom of each pepper, I topped it with the steak filling, then another piece of cheese. How bad could that be?
I then set my broiler to HI and I broiled the peppers until the cheese was melty and starting to brown.
This really was a super easy recipe. The hardest part was cutting up all of the vegetables and meat!
