Keto Philly Cheese Steak Bake “Casserole” is basically all of the flavors of the loved Philly cheese steak sandwich but Keto, Low Carb and EASY!
This meal is on regular rotation at our house. Keto Philly Cheese Steak Bake is a go to for busy weeknights. It can feed a crowd, or a small family with leftovers because it reheats perfectly for lunches (meal prep anyone?)
This Bake is also budget friendly, using ground beef, peppers and onions as the main ingredients.
One of the things I like most about Keto Philly Cheese Steak Bake is that it’s not really something I think of as “Keto” or “Low Carb” it’s a Bake or “Casserole” that uses every day ingredients that just so happen to be Keto and Low Carb! This makes it a great meal to serve to your guests, as no one is going to even know this is Keto dish.
Making Keto Philly Cheese Steak Bake:
I also use an enameled cast iron dutch oven to start. I love, love, love, did I say love my enameled cast iron dutch oven? With an electric stove and I find that I can control the consistency of the heat when using cast iron. You can find the one I use here.
Once you have started the cooking process and while the ground beef is still pink you will add the onion, green pepper and garlic. Don’t forget the salt and pepper! I like to cut my pepper and onion in strips. Cook this until the meat is no longer pink and the peppers and onions are tender.
Drain any excess liquid from your meat, pepper and onion mixture and transfer to a 9×13 pan. At this point your going to combine the eggs, heavy whipping cream, hot sauce and worcestershire sauce. This will be poured evenly over the ground beef/pepper mixture. Then the best part, the Cheese! Place sliced Provolone cheese over the top. I love cheese, so I don’t skimp. Place this in the oven at 325 for about an hour.
Tips and Tricks:
If your in a hurry or don’t have fresh bell peppers, you can use frozen pepper and onion mix. This will also reduce your prep time!
If your into meal prep, the Keto Philly Cheese Steak Bake is great reheated, and freezes well. I always use glass for storing and reheating, these containers are great with snap on lids.
You can use any color of bell peppers, I use Green in mine, unless I’m in a hurry and grab a bag of frozen peppers. Generally the frozen pepper and onion mix have a variety. I personally like the flavor of the green bell peppers best in this dish.
Add a little marinara sauce on top when serving. (Find my recipe for Keto Marinara Sauce here) While this may not be part of the traditional “Philly Cheese Steak” and you could start a heated debate if you talk to someone from Philly. In the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania a little closer to where my husband and I grew up adding Marina sauce to your “Philly” Cheese Steak is a real thing!
Make it a Meal!
You can’t go wrong serving up Keto Philly Cheese Steak Bake. It is an all in one meal that can be served by itself and please everyone. If your making this for dinner with guests, start your meal with a side salad and finish it off with some yummy Keto Lemon pound cake for dessert. If you want to get all Pennsylvania, instead of a salad, serve this with some cold picked eggs with beets. (Recipe for picked red beet eggs coming soon!) A glass of red wine such as Cabernet Sauvignon will pair well with this dish as it holds notes of green pepper and pairs well with red meat.
