Easy Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers are a delicious, quick way to enjoy great philly cheesesteak flavor in a stuffed bell pepper for a family meal everyone loves!
I love philly cheesesteaks - they are meaty, full of flavor, and come with tons of cheese, peppers, and onions - which are all my favorites (if you couldn't tell by almost every other recipe on this site...).
Living in Colorado, we don't have many truly great cheesesteaks - it's hard to find truly authentic philly-style sandwiches (and ask for whiz at most places and they will look at you like you're certifiable) - so I've come up with lots of different takes off one of my favorite meals.
This cheesesteak stuffed pepper recipe isn't an authentic philly cheesesteak - but has all the flavors from the iconic sandwich, stuffed into a bell pepper!
Stuffed bell peppers are another favorite meal of mine - because they are super easy to make, fun to eat, and always look so pretty!
They are great family dinner pleasers, and good for dinner parties, since you can even make these stuffed peppers a day or two before serving, and then just pop them into the oven when it's time to eat.
When I make these cheesesteak stuffed peppers, I like a little extra zip - and add lots of spicy montreal steak seasoning. The flavors work perfectly in a cheesesteak, and give a little something extra to the dish - the bits of spicy heat, smoky herbs, and garlic really accentuate the rich meaty taste, and pull out a buttery caramel flavor from the onions.
Depending on your taste, you might want to try the reduced sodium montreal steak seasoning (it can get very salty in this application, I like things on the saltier side, but I can see how some might want to make that swap) - or kick it up a notch with spicy montreal steak seasoning, which is what I love. The original kind is fabulous, too!
