The Grey Cup was last weekend and with that comes the pressure of putting together a kick butt game watching menu (big games and junk food go hand in hand in this house!). I thought that a Philly cheese steak sammy would be perfect but it is so unhealthy! Low and behold the inside out Philly cheese steak a healthier take on the famous sandwich.
WHAT DO I NEED?
- 3 bell peppers (any colour will do) cut in half lengthwise
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms
- 1 small yellow onion diced
- 6 slices low fat mozzarella or jalapeno havarti cheese
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- black pepper
- 1.25 lbs thinly sliced fast fry sandwich steak
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 6 tablespoons bbq sauce (optional)
WHAT DO I DO?
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Take a 9 x 13 baking dish and cover the inside with foil. Place pepper halves on sheet and bake for 25 minutes.
While the peppers are baking heat a nonstick skillet with 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium high heat. Add the onions and mushrooms and cook until onions are almost translucent and the mushrooms are almost brown about 4-5 minutes.
Add the sliced steak and Italian seasoning and cook for another 2-4 minutes until the steak is done. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and take off heat.
Remove peppers from oven. Place a tablespoon of bbq sauce in each pepper and coat the inside. Fill each pepper with the steak/mushroom/onion mixture. Once filled place a cheese slice on each pepper return to the oven for 5 minutes to melt cheese.
YUM! What are some of your favorite snacks?
