I have been having a cheesesteak obsession lately. My hubby and I love onions and peppers with just about anything so perhaps that is why. Today I was in the mood for an easy dinner recipe and threw together this low carb cheesesteak skillet using ground beef.
It’s like a deconstructed cheese burger with peppers and onions. I ate it on a salad and hubby ate his with rice. It was delicious and took little time to make.

What kind of ground beef to use
When I was shopping at Giant Eagle, they had Certified Angus Beef® ground beef on sale. I chose the 85% ground beef because I wanted it to have some fat for flavor but did not want much excess grease. If you have a preference for a fattier meat, just drain some of the grease out and if you want to use a leaner beef, you may need to add a bit more oil.
Low Carb Cheesesteak Recipe
Below you can see how I made this easy dinner recipe. I started with one oven safe pan and browned the ground beef with some steak seasoning. In the other skillet I started to saute the vegetables. When they were both done, I combined them and sprinkled cheese on top.
Then I just set it under the broiler for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese. That’s it. You can saute all of the items in one pan from the beginning but I want to finish this as quickly as possible so I used two.
Notes about this low carb recipe
- You can play with the amounts of vegetables you use to lower the carbs. According to my nutritional calculator, 1 cup of each of the following have – green peppers (4.4g net carbs), sweet red peppers (5.9g net carbs), onions (12.2g net carbs) and mushrooms (1.6g net carbs).
- Different cheeses have different carbs counts. I wanted to use provolone and gruyere for the taste but you can use whatever you want. Some carb counts for 1 cup of cheese are: shredded mozzarella (2.5g), shredded gruyere (0.4g), shredded cheddar (1.4g) and 1 oz provolone slice (0.6g).
How to eat this low carb cheesesteak ground beef
First of all this is very tasty right out of the pan. I ate it for lunch like this. For dinner, I added it to a salad for a burger type salad. You could also eat it with rice like my hubby or on a bun, both of which are not low carb but might be an option for other family members.
Well I hope you enjoy another low carb cheesesteak recipe. I think I am going to try to give it a little of break though I remember a cheesesteak soup that made but did not published yet. 🙂 The nutritional information for 1 serving is:
439 cals / 27.7g fat / 5.4g carbs / 1.5g fiber / 37.9g protein = 3.9g net carbs
