Italian Steak Stuffed Peppers

Italian Steak stuffed peppers think your favorite Italian sandwich stuffed in a pepper. Who needs bread when you can let the veggies shine!

I am so excited it is finally grilling season and no better way to kick it off than with these stuffed peppers. I love making stuffed peppers because they are such a blank canvas for any flavor. Not only that but a simple way to add in more colors to your day.

For these peppers I was inspired by the antipasto salad and Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Think for these peppers as the sandwich and salad had a baby. Easy, delicious and will become a family favorite.

I grilled up my favorite ribeye from Belcampo ( code SAVOR to save 20%) seasoned it with ground fennel seeds, salt and pepper. You can also use any leftover steak you have as well. Little tip for the steak if you have the time season it the night before and leave it in the fridge uncovered. It helps give the steak a crispy crust and delicious melt in your mouth center.

Then keep the italian these going I a grilled antipasto salad. With artichokes, peppers, onions, herbs and mushrooms. All tossed in a red wine vinaigrette which gives it that italian deli flavor. Mixed it with the steak, stuffed the peppers and topped with cheese.

Now comes to the gooey part the CHEESE! Nothing better than gooey melted cheese for this recipe I used parmesan but feel free to use your favorite melting italian cheeses. The peppers can be made ahead I just recommend if you do make them ahead wait to melt the cheese until you are ready to eat them that way the cheese is fresh.

Get any colored peppers you want ( the more colors the better) and get ready to add these peppers to your meal planning list as I have a feeling the whole family will love them.
