It doesn’t get much better than a low-carb, Philly Cheesesteak stuffed in a Portobello Mushroom! Steak and mushrooms work so well together, so why not make stuff them with this cheesy deliciousness!
I love a good cheesesteak sandwich, but honestly I can’t tell you the last time I had one because the average cheesesteak contains 900 calories, 40 g of fat, 50 g of protein and 80 g of carbohydrates which is fine for an occasional indulgence, but not something I would want to eat everyday.
This lighter version is still decadent, yet has plenty of vegetables to balance it out. I’m sure this would also be great with chicken if you prefer. Serve it with a big salad and call it a meal!
