Cheesesteak Bowls

When we visit my parents in Texas, one of our favorite stops is the Truck Yard, a beer garden with great drinks and even better food. While they offer yummy food truck options, it’s hard to beat their cheesesteaks. Your choice of protein, cheese, and veggies atop a huge hoagie roll – my mouth is watering just thinking about it! That’s why this week I decided to try my hand at a cheesesteak inspired dish for my weekly meal prep.

For vegetables, I chose the basics of green bell pepper, onion, and mushroom. I also like adding a bit of chopped jalapeno for some heat. The cheese selection is interchangeable, although Provolone is traditional. I used a mix of Mozzarella & Provolone since that’s what my local store had in stock.

Instructions
 

  • Cook rice according to directions.
  • While rice is cooking, sauté ground beef or turkey in an extra large pan on medium heat until mostly cooked.
  • Add bell pepper, onion, and mushrooms to the pan. Let simmer until veggies are cooked and drain excess fat if needed.
