A Healthier Philly Cheesesteak

by | Jan 20, 2018 | EZ Guy Recipes

The Philly Cheesesteak – the quintessential hungry man’s sandwich. Nothing slays hunger like this iconic sub, but it’s not exactly light on fat and calories. In fact, the average Philly Cheesesteak has 1,000 calories and 1,600 mg of salt!

But what if you could have all that meat and cheese guilt-free? It’s not a fantasy – just follow our food hacks below to make a homemade Philly Cheesesteak that rivals the big guys:

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 6-10 button mushrooms, sliced (or buy them pre-sliced at the store)
  • 1 red or green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 pound of sirloin steak, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • ¼ cup veggie or beef broth
  • Thinly sliced, reduced-fat provolone cheese
  • 4 whole-wheat submarine buns

Instructions

  1. Lightly cover a large, non-stick pan with olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Toss in onions, mushrooms and bell pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Toss in steak, shake some salt and pepper over everything, and fry until steak is cooked through – about 4 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to low, and sprinkle the flour over everything.
  5. Add broth, simmer for a few minutes.
  6. Place cheese slices to cover the mixture, let them melt for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Scoop four equal servings into submarine buns and serve.

Optional: Throw some sliced banana peppers into your sub for a spicy kick!
