A DELICIOUS STUFFED PEPPERS RECIPE

When I first started making cheesesteak stuffed peppers (based on another recipe), I was not impressed. The peppers didn’t seem fully cooked and the filling was seriously lacking in flavor. So, I set about creating my own recipe that solved all those issues. I pre-bake the peppers to make sure they’re nice and tender. I also season every part of the filling. Both the steak and the cheese have seasoning to really pack these full of flavor! Plus, I add a little secret ingredient to the cheese that takes it over the top!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What size peppers are best?

Try to get the largest peppers you can find. If they are on the smaller side, you can use 4 peppers instead of 3, just make the recipe the exact same way. The filling listed is enough to stuff 3 large peppers or 4 small ones. Any color of peppers can be used.

Where do I find the shaved steak?

I purchase this shaved steak at Kroger and at Walmart. If you can’t find it, just purchase a 14 ounce boneless ribeye and slice it very thinly.

Why do you pre-bake the peppers?

I pre-baked the peppers because I didn’t want to overcook the filling. The steak may get tough if it is overcooked. Also, this helps to cook the peppers thoroughly. A lot of the time I find stuffed peppers to be undercooked, so pre-baking them helps.

What other cheeses can be used?

Monterey Jack, Sharp White Cheddar, Mozzarella, or Pepper Jack would also be good.

Why add mayonnaise to the shredded cheese?

This adds incredible flavor. It’s how I make my garlic cheese bread and it’s the secret ingredient that makes that cheese taste even cheesier!

How do I store leftovers?

Keep leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat leftovers in the oven or microwave until warmed through.
