Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich
Most of the good stuff in a Philly cheesesteak, from thin-sliced steak to onions, peppers and mushrooms, is still here but we opt for slightly-less-gooey but more flavorful provolone cheese in place of Cheese Whiz. We adore spicy banana peppers as a topping, but omit them if you can do without the heat.
Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
Two of our favorite comfort-food sandwiches join forces in these family-friendly dinner sandwiches. We found that softer buns make this easier to eat, and it's all the better when wrapped takeout-style in a sheet of foil.
Portobello "Philly Cheesesteak" Sandwich
Cheesesteaks are a Philadelphia tradition: thin slices from a rich and very fatty slab of beef, fried up and topped with a heavy cheese sauce. We've cut down on the fat considerably--but not on the taste. All it needs is a cold beer or a glass of pinot noir on the side.
Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers
Mounding a classic Philly cheesesteak mixture in a colorful bell pepper and melting cheese on top is an easy way to skip the bread and cut the carbs.
Philly Cheesesteak Burritos
This may be your new favorite way to eat a Philly Cheesesteak. Enjoy the mouthwatering beef, cheese, peppers, and onions all wrapped up in a whole-wheat tortilla. This recipe can be eaten immediately or made ahead to enjoy later.
Cheesesteaks with Peppers and Onions
Don't forget the cheesesteaks! This version is so flavorful, you won't believe it's light enough for your special diet.
