Clean up your Philly Cheesesteak!

Yummmmmm- Philly cheese steak how I love you.
Every once in awhile I just get a craving
for that delicious melt in your mouth and
drip in your hand
little slice of food paradise- but let’s face it1
a Philly cheese steak is not exactly on the list
of low calorie, high nutrition foods
I found a way to add the flavor to our regular
dinner rotation without
feeling guilty!
I mean it’s not exactly the same but
it is really really good….
(and easy of course!)
Cut about 2 pounds of cube steak into strips and throw in the bottom
of the slow cooker and then cover with
1 green pepper,
1 red pepper, and
1 yellow pepper also cut into thin strips,
1 onion, thinly sliced and about
1/2 pounds of thinly sliced mushroom
(I usually use baby button, but you can buy whatever kind you like)
On top of this mountain of veggies drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil
and sprinkle about 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt and
3/4-1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper.
Close it up and turn it on low for about 6 hours and this is what you will have:
Now just give it a stir to mix it all together and scoop into a bowl,
Place a slice of provolone or some grated provolone on top
and poof- you have what I like to call
Philly cheese casserole.
Now don’t get me wrong-
this would taste AMAZING on a great roll-
I just prefer to leave out the bread for most of my dinners.
Now go, cook and be happy!!!
(and here is the recipe without my narration-)


2 lbs cube steaks, cut into strips
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1 red pepper, cut into strips

1 yellow pepper, cut into strips
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 lb mushroom, sliced more to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4-1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
6 thin slices of provolone cheese


saute mushrooms in olive oil until softened and light brown, about 5 minutes.
add to slow cooker along with the rest of the ingredients, except the provolone.
cook on low for 6 hours.
stir well,
scoop it into bowls (should make about 6 servings) and then top each one
with some of the provolone and add some cooking juices to each bowl to melt the cheese.
I know, I know- the bread makes a great cheese steak but if you want to see results you have to make some changes. Try it without the bread this one time-it is super yum!
