Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers


A Note from Feedfeed

EveryDayMaven grew up in Philly, so she takes her cheesteaks very seriously. For a healthier twist, she makes hers into stuffed peppers, but still uses the classic, thinkly sliced sirloin or ribeye steak and lots of onions. The Land O Lakes® Deli American is broiled over top, creating the melty, creamy part everyone loves in a cheesesteak.

Recipe Card


  • 4 medium green bell peppers, halved from stem to root, seeds and ribs removed
  • 3 tablespoon avocado oil (or other mild tasting high heat oil), divided
  • 1 extra-large yellow onion, peeled, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1 pound ribeye or sirloin (or a combo), thinly sliced for steak sandwiches
  • 16 slices Land O’ Lakes American Cheese Deli Slices


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425F.

  • Step 2

    Wash bell peppers, halve from stem to root and use a paring knife to carefully remove all ribs and seeds. Place on a baking sheet and divide 1 tablespoon of avocado oil over all eight halves. Rub on both sides and sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on each. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

  • Step 3

    While peppers are baking, heat a large 12” cast iron or stainless frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add remaining 2 tablespoons avocado oil and sliced onion along with ½ teaspoon of both salt and pepper. Sauté for 7 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions have softened and are fragrant.

  • Step 4

    Add sliced meat and remaining ½ teaspoon of each salt and pepper. Sauté for an additional 7 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until no pink visible. Remove from heat and strain in a fine mesh strainer if there is any visible liquid or moisture in the frying pan. Set aside until peppers are done.

  • Step 5

    Carefully remove peppers from oven (leave oven turned on to 425 F) and turn each to cut side to make it easy to fill them. Evenly divide cooked meat and onion mixture among the eight halves.

  • Step 6

    Top each with two slices of Land O Lakes Deli American slices and place back into the oven for 5 minutes to allow for cheese to melt.

  • Step 7

    Turn oven to broil and broil for 1 to 3 minutes for cheese to brown. Watch closely as broiler temperatures can vary. Remove, serve immediately and Enjoy!
