Keto Philly Cheesesteak Mac n’ Cheese (10 Net Carbs)

Posted on

Ingredients:

  • 1lb Ribeye or Strip Steak (Thin cut preferred)
  • 1 large Green Bell pepper
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 4 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss (Or cheese of your choice)
  • 5 slices of Provolone Cheese (Or use additional shredded cheese)
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Garlic powder

Directions:

  • Cut Green pepper in to thin strips or chop, removing any of the white membrane and seeds.  Cut onion in to thin strips or chop.
  • Slice the Ribeye in to bite-sized pieces and season with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder to your liking.
  • Cut the cauliflower in to florets and break in to bite sized pieces.  Place in a microwave container with a tablespoon of water and microwave, covered, for 7 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower is microwaving, start a skillet over medium heat.  Melt the butter and then add the garlic.  Cook for 1 minute stirring frequently.  Add heavy whipping cream and bring to a simmer.  Season with a little salt and pepper. Allow the cream to simmer for about 4 minutes, or until it just starts to thicken.   Then remove the skillet from the heat and whisk in the shredded cheese until it has melted.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together cauliflower and cheese sauce.  Spread in a medium sized baking dish.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and cook the cauliflower for 20 minutes.
  • While the “mac n’ cheese” is baking, heat a skillet or wok to high heat.  Once hot, add 1 tablespoon of Avocado oil and cook the steak for about 2 minutes, stirring about every 30 seconds to allow the steak to brown.  Add Worcestershire and toss with the steak for a few seconds.  Remove immediately and set to the side.
  • Lower the skillet temperature to medium/medium high temperature (add a little more oil if needed) and begin to stir fry the veggies for 5 minutes or so.  The veggies should be tender with just a little bite to them.  Remove and set to the side once finished.
  • When the mac n’ cheese is finished. Mix in the peppers and onions in to the Mac n cheese and spread evenly in the baking dish.  Top with the cooked steak and then the sliced cheese over top of the steak.
  • Broil for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown and serve.
