Healthy Philly Cheesesteak
Share |

You don't necessarily have to deprive yourself of your favorite foods when you are on a heart-healthy diet -- all you really need to do is update them to fit into your lifestyle. This healthy version of the classic Philly Cheesesteak adds more whole grains and vegetables while using leaner cuts of meat.




Servings: 1

Prep Time: 1 hour


3oz. Lean Rib-eye or Top-round, sliced thin

Cooking spray

2 Tbsp yellow onion, julienned

2 Tbsp green pepper, cleaned, trimmed, and julienned

2 Tbsp mushrooms, sliced thin

1 tsp olive oil

¼ tsp ground black pepper

½ Whole Wheat Steak Roll (6inch)

2 Tbsp Shredded Reduced Fat Provolone

Directions: Place the rib-eye in the freezer for 30-45 minutes. Remove rib-eye and slice thin. Spray skillet with cooking spray. Add onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. Sauté until onions are golden brown and peppers and mushrooms are tender. In a separate skillet, brown the sliced rib-eye in 1 tsp olive oil and pepper. Toast Steak Roll. Put a layer of rib-eye on the bottom of the steak roll, top with provolone, onions, peppers, and mushrooms.
