Cheesesteak, Mushroom, & Onion Stuffed Peppers

Cheesesteak, Mushroom, & Onion Stuffed Peppers

I came across this recipe and instantly knew I wanted to try it. I secretly love steak and cheese subs, but I rarely eat them. I was skeptical about the flavors without the bread. The peppers came out great, although I have to admit that I made the leftover meat and onion mixture into  sandwich…with bread. The pepper and filling was very flavorful and a fun, new, healthier take on a pretty classic sandwich combination. Enjoy!


  • 1 package of shaved steak from the butcher’s section of the grocery store
  • 2 large green bell peppers, top and insides removed (any color will work!)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced thin
  • 2 cups baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup smoked mozzarella, grated
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • olive oil for drizzling
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a medium sauce pan, saute the onions over medium heat with butter and olive oil. Once softened, add the garlic, mushrooms, and mustard. Salt and pepper and saute until everything is caramelized, about 20 minutes .
  3. Scoop the onion mixture into a bowl and wipe the bottom of the pan with a paper towel. Turn the heat up to medium high and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the shaved steak and cook for just a minute (the meat will continue to cook in the oven!)
  4. Alternate layers inside the pepper: Italian cheese blend, meat, onion mixture. Repeat. Top the peppers with the smoked mozzarella.
  5. Bake the peppers for 20 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly. If you want a softer texture for the pepper, pour a little water in the bottom of your baking dish so that the pepper steams as it bakes.
