Easy Keto Philly Cheesesteak Skillet 

This philly cheesesteak recipe is from a new keto cookbook put out by everyone’s favorite Keto macro tracker Carbmanager.com!
They are calling it the companion cookbook to their popular tracking  app, but you don’t have to have the app to enjoy the amazing recipes in the book!

Why I loved the Carb Manager Cookbook

  • There are over 100 recipes
  • Each recipe has a photo and detailed instructions
  • Recipes not only have macros, they each have a QR code that you can scan and track in your carbmanager app!
  • I loved the Quick and Easy section (I’m all about quick and easy) and there is a section of recipes that are suitable to meal prep and batch cooking
  • As I looked through the book to choose a recipe, I was struck by how many vegetarian keto recipes there were, you don’t usually see that many in one book!
  • They used icons to identify recipes as follows:  Dairy Free, Paleo, Vegetarian, 30 Minutes or less and those with more than 6 grams of net carbs.

You can preorder your copy of the Carb Manager cookbook here, it is being released just in time for Christmas!

Easy Keto Philly Cheesesteak Skillet 

I chose this recipe from the book because I knew my family would love it and eat it. And since I am mostly Carnivore these days, I knew it would be a good one to tweak for myself as well.
This skillet philly cheesesteak has all the flavor of the traditional dish but only a fraction of the work and carbs!

Ingredients you will need for this recipe

  • Flank steak
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • onion and garlic powder
  • mushrooms
  • green pepper
  • Provolone cheese

You will also want to use an oven proof skillet of some sort.  My favorite for this type of recipe is my 2 handled cast iron pan

The second handle makes it so much easier to get in and out of the oven.

Tips and Tweaks for Making This Low Carb Skillet Dish

To me, one of the hallmarks of a great family recipe is to be able to change things around and it still turns out great!  I have some simple tweaks you can try.

  • You could easily make this with any leftover steak or even roast beef.  Thinly slice it and skip most of the searing and cooking part of the recipe.
  • The recipe tasted fantastic on it’s own. You could also buy or make some Keto buns and toast them and pile the cheesesteak on top. You could also make chaffles for this!
  • If you don’t have provolone cheese, this would be amazing with a mix of cheddar and mozzarella.
  • Even if you don’t have an oven proof skillet, you can put all the ingredients into a 9 x 12 casserole pan for the baking part.
  • For those that are following a Carnivore plan, this is an easy tweak by just leaving out the green peppers and mushrooms.
