There’s a food truck in Seattle that has the best Philly cheesesteak sliders, I would get them on the days I wanted to treat myself. I found that when I broke off the bread, the best part of the sliders was the inside anyway. This is why I love the low-carb option so much. The stuffed peppers are just as delicious, and I get to keep my waistline.

Best Cut of Beef to Use for Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers
Ribeye is always amazing. It’s perfectly marbled and packs a ton of beef-y flavor. Amongst philly cheesesteak enthusiasts, ribeye is considered the most authentic cut to use for this beloved street food. However, it is quite expensive. If you are trying to be a bit more thrifty, opt for skirt steak. It’s easier on the wallet and perfect for pan-frying. You could also use top sirloin.
How to Cut Beef for Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers
Slice beef against the grain with a gentle sawing motion. The “grain” refers to the direction the muscle fibers are growing. You are going to want to cut across the grain, versus parallel to it. This helps maintain uniformity and prevents you from compromising the shape of the strips.
You also want to slice your beef as thinly as possible. This will set the stage for even cooking! Plus, thinner steak strips make for better pepper stuffing. The goal is to have a nice, even bite!
