Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Bell Peppers
This is a recipe that has been on my list to try from An Affair From The Heart for a while. Stuffed Bell Peppers are one of my favorite meals, and so are Philly Cheese Steaks. Combining the 2? Of course that would be delicious! Sunday afternoon I had a 5K distance run on my training plan, (which just so happens to be the furthest I have run in my adult life!), so needless to say, Sunday Dinner needed to be quick and easy. I was tired and hungry! Ha!
These Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Bell Peppers totally fit the bill! They were quick, easy, delicious and a hit with my whole family. If you want the original recipe with step by step photos, head over to An Affair From The Hearts Blog. The only things I did different, is cut mine down the middle because I love a more heavy cheese to pepper ratio, also I boil my peppers for 5 minutes before stuffing and baking because my hubby prefers the peppers a little bit more cooked. I used 4 peppers (8 halves) instead of 5 because that is all that would fit in my pan, so I had some extra stuffing, but I was happy about that because we ate the extra stuffing while the peppers baked. #NoShame
Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Bell Peppers from An Affair From The Heart
4 Bell Peppers, halved from stem to bottom, insides cleaned out
3 Tbsp butter
16 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb deli roast beef, thinly sliced
salt & pepper to taste
Provolone cheese, sliced or shredded
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to boil and add peppers, Boil for 5 minutes then drain. Set aside to cool.
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and mushrooms. Cook for 20 minutes. The last 3 or 4 minutes, add the minced garlic to the pan. Add meat and cook for 10 minutes longer.
Place peppers in bottom of a casserole dish. Place a little bit of cheese in bottom of each pepper, then stuff the peppers with the meat mixture. I like mine really stuffed, so I crammed a ton of it in each one. Top each pepper with lots of cheese and bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is starting to brown.
