- 8 ounces thinly sliced roast beef
- 8 slices provolone cheese
- 2 large green bell peppers
- 1 medium sweet onion, sliced (as tolerated)
- 6 ounces baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced (as tolerated)
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- Slice peppers in half lengthwise and remove ribs and seeds.
- In a large sauté pan over low-medium heat, add butter, olive oil, garlic, mushrooms, onions, and a little salt and pepper.
- Sauté until onions and mushroom are nice and caramelized, about 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Slice roast beef into thin strips and add to the onion/mushroom mixture. Allow to cook 5 to 10 minutes. Line the inside of each pepper with a slice of provolone cheese. Fill each pepper with meat mixture until they are nearly overflowing.
- Top each pepper with another slice of provolone cheese.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese on top is golden brown. (You may want to pre-bake the peppers for about 10 minutes while the meat mixture is cooking if you like a softer pepper.)
