Keto-Philly-Cheesesteak-Stuffed-Peppers

This recipe for Philly Cheesesteak stuffed peppers is oh so good and it’s Keto friendly coming in at 10 grams of carb for one serving. The bell peppers are filled with goodness consisting of steak, mushrooms, sliced bell peppers and cheese along with a few other ingredients. I like to serve this with cauliflower rice and a green salad but you can choose whatever you want to serve with it. Enjoy!

Pour a thin layer of olive oil in the pan – just enough to coat the bottom and generously salt and pepper both sides of the sirloin. Place it in the hot skillet for 1 minute on each side then remove it from the pan and place the steak on a cutting board.

Are bell peppers Keto approved? 

Yes, bell peppers are Keto approved but in moderation. There is about 2 grams of carbs for a half cup of sliced bell peppers. In this recipe you need to consider that there is a half of a bell pepper and then you have additional sliced bell peppers for the inside. The total for everything in this recipe is about 10 grams of carbs for one bell pepper with the filling.

  1. These look so good! I have a lot of pepper plants planted this year so I think I will try these when some of my peppers are ready. I have a big variety this year so this will be a treat! It is a different twist on two favorites in our household – everybody here really enjoys cheesesteaks and stuffed peppers.
