Ingredients

  • 3 large bell peppers different colors
  • 1 tsp kosher salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper or to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1.5 lb beef thinly sliced, lean cut
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder or to taste
  • 2 cups shredded provolone cheese divided
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • chopped cilantro to garnish
  • lemon wedges to serve with

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven at 400 °F and grease an oven-proof glass dish with some oil.
  • Cut the peppers in half, lengthwise, and discard the seeds; set aside.
  • Place them on the prepared pan or dish. Season with salt and pepper and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until slightly softened.
  • Meanwhile, in a heavy skillet, add oil and heat until shimmering hot.
  • Add sliced beef together with grated onion and seasonings; Cook stirring occasionally until evenly golden brown, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Stir in the diced tomatoes and 2/3 of the shredded cheese. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and take off the heat.
  • Next, stuff the roasted peppers halves with the steak filling. Top with the remaining shredded cheese on top.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro leaves and serve with lemon wedges.

Notes

  • Use a preheated oven.
  • Ideally, shred your own cheese, it melts s better than pre-shredded. Pre shredded cheese contains anti-caking agents, meaning they don't melt fully - but they'll still work fine!
  • If you don't have provolone feel free to use a Mexican blend, jack, or melty mozzarella.
  • If you have time, partially freeze the steak before slicing it, it's much easier to get thin slices that way.
  • You can dial the chili powder up or down, depending on your spicy preference!
  • Garnish with fresh cilantro or parsley, for a pop of color.
