Ingredients

  • 4 large bell peppers (any color)
  • 1 lb (450g) thinly sliced steak (such as ribeye or sirloin)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: sliced mushrooms, diced tomatoes, hot sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking dish with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray.
  2. Cut the tops off the bell peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Place the peppers upright in the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the thinly sliced steak and cook until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the steak from the skillet and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add the sliced onion and green bell pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft and caramelized, about 5-6 minutes.
  5. Return the cooked steak to the skillet with the onions and peppers. Stir to combine and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  6. Place two slices of provolone cheese inside each bell pepper, lining the bottom and sides.
  7. Spoon the steak, onion, and pepper mixture evenly into each bell pepper until they are filled to the top.
  8. Tear the remaining provolone slices into smaller pieces and place them on top of the steak mixture in each pepper.
  9. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the peppers are tender and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and slightly crispy.
  11. Serve the Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers hot, garnished with optional toppings like sliced mushrooms, diced tomatoes, or a drizzle of hot sauce. Enjoy!
