Banana Peppers are arguably the best peppers for stuffing. Each Summer, we buy a bushel of banana peppers. We wash and remove the core then freeze for the many dinners ahead. Purchasing peppers in bulk and freezing will save you money during the winter/spring months when peppers tend to be a bit more costly in the markets. The latest meal to come out of our winter stash of frozen banana peppers are these Cheese Steak filled banana peppers.
Cheese Steak Hot Peppers are a delicious one pan meal that you can make in 1 hour. Utilizing banana peppers instead of green peppers is a perfect way to add spice to your dinner and create a low carbohydrate dinner. When banana peppers are stuffed with cabbage or meat, you can easily leave out the potatoes for this meal and just enjoy an extra pepper to fill you up.
What you will need is: chipped steak, banana peppers (fresh or frozen), Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, Colby blend cheese, scallions, parley, and spaghetti sauce.
To prepare your filling, saute’ the chipped steak and scallions in a stove top skillet.
When the steak is perfectly browned, top with Colby blend cheese and stir together until melted.
Stuff the peppers. The banana peppers do look a little frosty as they were pulled from the freezer as the meat finished browning.
Covering the peppers in sauce is an important step. This keeps the peppers from drying out but also, gives them the added flavor of a Philly Cheese Steak. For the sauce, I used Prego Meat Flavored and added minced garlic and parley to the sauce.
Cover the peppers in sauce, and cover with a lid or foil and place in oven and bake for 45 minutes on 350 degrees.
Even though the steak is fully cooked when stuffed in the peppers, you want the sauce to be thoroughly heated and the peppers tender for cutting.
Finish by covering with Parmesan Cheese and serving.
