Craving a Philly cheesesteak sandwich but know you can't indulge because you're on the ketogenic diet? Well, we've got a recipe alternative for you! Instead of processed grains, swap out the bread for red bell peppers instead! These Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers are packed full of flavor, healthy fats, and protein, without the carbs! One serving is 9g of net carbs per serving, which is a little on the higher end for a ketogenic diet, but can be managed as a meal if additional carbohydrates eaten throughout the day are minimal.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Arrange the red bell pepper halves on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skilled over medium-high heat.
Cook the onion and green bell pepper until soft. This should take about six minutes.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add the steak and cook until desired. This will take around 3 minutes for medium-cooked steak. Set aside.
Remove the red bell peppers from the oven and add one slice of provolone to the bottom of each.
Top with the steak mixture and then an additional slice of provolone cheese.
Set the oven to broil and return the philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers to the oven again.
Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted and is golden brown.
Enjoy your Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers and store them in an air-tight container in the fridge!
