Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Casserole
I have really been craving the flavors of a Cheesesteak lately. I got the idea of doing a spin off of a Philly Cheesesteak after seeing Peace Love and Low Carb’s Stuffed Philly Cheesesteak Peppers. For my family, the idea of a casserole just works better for some meals. I decided to try my hand at making a Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Casserole.
We don’t normally shop at Walmart… but we found ourselves there on a Friday night after going to Hobby Lobby (they are right next to each other). I was wanting to make something quick for dinner that I could throw together without much fuss.
I looked at Walmart’s options of sliced Beef in their main deli section, and I just wasn’t impressed at all. Lots of caramel coloring, soy, nitrates… ingredients that I wasn’t very happy about.
Adam said that maybe we should just buy a steak and cut it up as thinly as possible (another option, but more hassle than I wanted to deal with). As we were walking to get the steak, I looked and saw Hormel’s All Natural Sliced deli meats. I remembered that my sister had bought some Hormel All Natural Turkey for making sandwiches, because the ingredients were okay.
I’m sure that these deli meats aren’t perfect (and aren’t grass-fed ; ) ), but sometimes you do what you can. The sliced beef worked great in this recipe. You can always use your favorite sliced beef as a substitute. I know Kroger’s sells Boar’s Head brand that is all natural as well.
I hope you love this Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Casserole as much as we do! We ate ours with a salad for dinner. You could also pair it with some other low carb sides for your family’s dinner.
