Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Poblanos

Finding low carb meals that satisfy me is pretty easy…  Give me enough cheese and meat, and I won’t feel like I’m missing out on anything.  Finding low carb meals that will also satisfy my man?  Much more challenging!  This is one of those gems; meaty, cheesy, and hearty enough to quell my man’s appetite.

  • 4 large poblano peppers
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, quartered and sliced thin
  • 5 white button mushrooms, sliced thick
  • a few cloves (actually we use close to an entire bulb) of garlic, minced
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 7 oz. thin sliced roast beef
  • 8 slices provolone

Preheat oven to 400 and line a casserole dish with heavy duty aluminum foil.

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat with the butter and olive oil.  As soon as the oil gets hot, add the sliced onions.  Next add the sliced mushrooms (before the onions begin to caramelize).  At this point you can add your minced garlic, along with a generous few pinches of salt and pepper.  Next you want to chop up your roast beef slices.  I like to roll the roast beef slices into a log and slice a few times lengthwise before chopping into thirds or fourths (you want to keep the pieces relatively large).  Add the chopped roast beef to the skillet and sauté  until heated through.

Wash the poblanos well before slicing them in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and ribs.  Place the halved peppers cut side up in the casserole dish.  Put one slice of cheese (I tear the cheese in half as the peppers are a bit slender) in the bottom of each pepper, fill with sautéed mixture, and top with another slice of cheese.  Bake for 25-35 minutes until peppers are tender and cheese is browned.
