Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Bell Peppers

After testing The BEST Rice Ever recipe a few weeks back, we were left with mounds of leftover rice to contend with. We could only eat it for dinner so much, so we set out to make a few leftover rice recipes. The first was this easy Breakfast Fried Rice recipe and then came along these Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers, and we’re so glad they did. They are exactly what you think you are: bell peppers stuffed with thinly sliced steak, mushrooms, onions, cheese and leftover rice. They are also delicious.

What we love about stuffed peppers is that while they take a few pre-cook steps of getting the meat and veggies soft, the bulk of the cooking time is hands-off in the oven, and they are a great make ahead dish. You can either prep the whole thing ahead of time and bake when ready, or you can cook the stuffed peppers entirely and use them for meal prep dinner or lunch.

Do You Cook the Meat before Stuffing Peppers?

Yes! As with most stuffed peppers recipes, everything is precooked before going into the stuffed peppers, except the bell peppers themselves.

Can These be Made Low Carb?

Yes! If you prefer to make these Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers Keto friendly you can use uncooked cauliflower rice. Everything else in the recipe will stay the same.

What Goes Good as a Side Dish with Stuffed Peppers?

We feel that this stuffed bell peppers recipes is a whole meal in itself because it has the added rice to the filling,  but if you were looking to serve it alongside something a salad would pair well!

Recipe Notes

  1. If you can’t find shaved steak, you can use another boneless cut of steak like a ribeye, top sirloin or skirt steak. To get thin slices you can briefly freeze the steak, for about 15 minutes or so and slice against the grain.
