Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers Recipe – Low Carb, Gluten Free, and Paleo Friendly
Philly is one of my favorite cities. Chicago and New York have their delicious pizza, but Philadelphia has cheesesteak glory. This Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers recipe will satisfy that craving with amazing flavor that is low carb, gluten free, and even paleo diet-friendly!
The history behind the Philly creation is debated, but Pat and Harry Olivieri are usually credited with the sandwich. Chopped steak and onions served on an Italian roll was the initial version and cheese was added later on. Typically, thinly sliced rib-eye or top roast are the choice beef cuts, but you can use just about any cut. You can add sautéed onions, peppers, mushrooms, or leave them out depending on your taste. Top the meaty mixture with provolone cheese and enjoy it on an Amoroso roll, and you have the sandwich that has stood the test of time.
If you are sensitive to gluten, on a low carb diet, or even sticking to a paleo plan, this version of the Philly Cheesesteak will be just as satisfying and easy to make.

Thinly sliced roast beef – (Boar’s Head is my favorite.)
1 onion – chopped
1 clove of garlic – minced
Green bell peppers
