I remember when I was young I was forced to eat stuffed pepper. I hated that. Worse yet, I was always made to eat them raw. Later in life I began to enjoy that. I remember the day, however, that my mom added a steak mixture and some cheese to some bell peppers she had pre-baked. My goodness, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The taste and texture was simply out of this world.
I perfected her cheesesteak stuffed bell peppers and still eat them today. It’s a must on my menu at least once a month.

Our cheesesteak bell peppers is a delicious combination of of red peppers, onions, mushrooms, and much more. It is nutritional, delicious, and the outcome is simply stunning.
Place the bell peppers into a baking dish. Place into the oven and bake them at 325 degrees F or 165 C for about 30 minutes or until tender.
While the peppers are baking, add some oil to a pan over medium heat. Add in the onions, button mushrooms, season with salt and pepper.
Stir and fry for about 6 minutes until the onions are translucent and release most of the water.

Place back into the oven on broil for an additional 3 minutes until the cheese is melted.

I use red bell peppers in this recipe because I like the sweetness. You can use green or yellow peppers though. Of course, the ingredients you can alter to your liking. The main thing is to use a good cut of meat. That will make all the difference in the world.
