close up of cooked philly cheesesteak stuffed pepper on a tray
  • 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 tsp sea salt divided
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper divided
  • 1 pound ribeye or sirloin (or a combo) thinly sliced for steak sandwiches
  • 16 slices Land O Lakes® Deli American
  1. Preheat oven to 425F.

    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 T 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.

  2. While peppers are baking, heat a large (12”) cast iron or stainless frying pan over medium heat.

    Once hot, add remaining 2 T 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.

    Add sliced meat and remaining ½ teaspoon of each salt and pepper. 

  3. 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 / moisture in the frying pan.

    Set aside until peppers are done.

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

  5. Top each with two slices of Land O Lakes® Deli American and place back into the oven for 5 minutes to allow for them to melt. Turn oven to broil and broil for 1 to 3 minutes for them to brown. Watch closely as broiler temperatures can vary.

  6. Remove, serve immediately and enjoy!
