Ingredient Notes

Ingredients to make philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers - roast beef, onion, mushrooms, provolone, garlic
  • Green bell peppers: For this recipe I used green bell peppers as that is what you typically see on a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, but you can use any color pepper you prefer. (Try the Philly Cheesesteak Casserole from my book Craveable Keto)
  • Provolone cheese: Melty provolone is always my first choice for this recipe, but you can use any cheese you prefer. I also love sharp white cheddar, American, smoked Gouda, and havarti. I like to live on the edge and mess with tradition.
  • Roast beef: I used a thinly sliced deli-style roast beef. I know this will upset some of the diehard Philly fans, but it’s delicious. A true Philly is made with thinly sliced ribeye steak. (I get all my grass-fed beef here)
  • Mushrooms: I used baby bella mushrooms for this recipe, but you can use any mushrooms you prefer.
  • Onions: The longer you cook the onions, the sweeter and more caramelized they will be. The sweetness complements the bitterness of the green peppers nicely.

STEP 7: Top each pepper with another slice of provolone cheese.

STEP 8: Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese on top is golden brown. (You may want to pre-bake the peppers for about 10 minutes while the meat mixture is cooking if you like a softer pepper)

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Storage: Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. (These are my favorite meal prep and storage containers)
  • Reheating: I recommend reheating these Keto Philly Cheesesteaks in the oven or in an air fryer.
  • Bell Peppers: Make it a rainbow of color and use one red, one orange, one yellow and one green bell pepper. (Try these Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers)
  • Beef it up: Instead of the thinly sliced roast beef, use ribeye, top sirloin, new york, or filet mignon.
  • Change the cheese: You will find a lot of debate over what constitutes a true Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. But among the most common variations you will see cheese whiz, provolone, American and sometimes even Swiss.
  • Make stuffed mushrooms: If you are not a fan of bell peppers, or just want a little variety, try stuffing the meat and veggie mixture inside portobello mushroom caps instead of peppers. (check out these keto stuffed mushroom recipes)
  • Add pickled peppers: I like to add some sliced pepperoncinis to the top of these Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers after cooking.
  • Mix in some mayo: Mix some mayo into the stuffing mixture, or just dip your peppers in mayo for some extra creamy goodness. Try my Homemade Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise Recipe.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s on a traditional Philly cheesesteak?

This depends who you ask, but a traditional Philly is a crusty hoagie roll, thinly sliced ribeye steak, grilled onions and either Cheez Whiz or American cheese.

What if I do not like green bell peppers?

If you are not a fan of green bell peppers, you can substitute orange, yellow, or red bell peppers. They are milder and sweeter.
