What You Need

  • Bell Peppers – I used a mix of red and green bell peppers, you can use your preference
  • Mushrooms – we kept it simple with the pre-sliced mushrooms in the produce section
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Worcestershire Sauce – this helps give a lovely caramelized flavor to the beef mixture (to keep this recipe gluten free and Whole30, replace with coconut aminos)
  • Ground Beef – typically you would see a sliced beef, but I wanted to use ground beef to keep it simple and use an ingredient that most of us always have on hand
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Shredded White Cheddar Cheese – traditionally, Philly cheesesteak has provolone but I like the creaminess and punch of flavor that the white cheddar brings

We enjoyed these Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers with my Spicy Garlic Aioli on top, it is the perfect condiment and really added a punch of flavor to the dish!

  • 3 Bell Peppers cut in half; seeds removed
  • 1 Tbls Butter
  • 8 oz Mushrooms sliced baby bella
  • 1 Yellow Onion thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 Tbls Worcestershire Sauce divided
  • 1 Tbls Avocado Oil
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Shredded White Cheddar Cheese


  • Place the halved and seeded bell peppers in a baking dish; spray them lightly with avocado oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
    Place them in the oven and broil on high for about 7-10 minutes; keep an eye on them so they don't burn – it is just to soften them and get a little caramelization on the edges
    Take out of the oven and set aside
  • Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat
    Add in the thinly sliced onions and mushrooms – sauté for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally – they should soften and start to caramelize
    Add in the minced garlic and 1 Tbls of the Worcestershire sauce – sauté another 3 minutes
    Remove from pan, season with salt and pepper to taste and set aside
  • Add in the avocado oil and turn heat to medium/high
    Add in the ground beef with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder
    Sauté until completely browned and cooked through (about 5 minutes) then stir in the onion/mushroom mixture and the remaining Worcestershire sauce
    Cook another 2-3 minutes and remove from heat
  • Fill the peppers with the equal amounts (about 1/2 cup) of mixture and then top with the shredded cheese
    Place back under the broiler for 1-2 minutes to melt the cheese (be careful not to burn)
    Serve with optional Spicy Garlic Aioli and enjoy!


The best way to clean mushrooms is with a damp paper towel so they don’t absorb too much water before cooking

    These were delicious as well as quick and easy which I love for a weeknight dinner. My husband put the filling in a low carb pita and loved it as well. Definitely make the garlic aoli, it really kicks it up a notch! Will be making this again for sure.
