Welcome to Ineskohl Kitchen! Today, we’re bringing the streets of Philadelphia to your table with a delectable Philly Cheesesteak Casserole. Bursting with hearty steak, sweet onions, crunchy bell peppers, and gooey cheese, this low-carb wonder is sure to become a favorite.

What type of steak works best for the Philly Cheesesteak Casserole?

While the recipe suggests using ribeye or chuck eye steak, any marbled steak should work well. The marbling of the steak helps to add flavor and keep the meat tender during cooking.

Can I use a different type of cheese other than provolone in this recipe?

Yes, you can substitute provolone cheese with other kinds of cheese that melt well. Mozzarella or mild cheddar can be good alternatives.

What can I use as a substitute for almond flour?

If you’re not on a low-carb diet, regular flour can be used as a substitute for almond flour. For those who are gluten intolerant or sticking to a low-carb diet, coconut flour is a great alternative.

Can I add other vegetables to the Philly Cheesesteak Casserole?

Absolutely! While bell peppers and onions are traditional to the Philly Cheesesteak, feel free to add mushrooms, zucchini, or any other veggies you prefer.

Can I prepare this dish ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare the casserole and refrigerate it before baking. Just make sure to add about 5-10 minutes to the baking time if you’re cooking it straight from the fridge.

How long does the Philly Cheesesteak Casserole last in the fridge?

The casserole should be good for about 3-5 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Can I freeze the Philly Cheesesteak Casserole?

Yes, the casserole can be frozen. Store it in an airtight container or heavy-duty freezer bag. It should keep well for about 2-3 months. Just thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.

What can I serve with the Philly Cheesesteak Casserole?

A simple green salad or roasted vegetables would complement the casserole nicely. If you’re not concerned about carbs, it goes well with a warm bread roll.

Here’s everything you’ll need:


  • 2 lb ribeye or chuck eye steak
  • 2 green bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic 
  • 8 slices provolone cheese, cut into halves 
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 Tbs cayenne pepper sauce 
  • 1 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped 
  • 1/2 cup almond flour 
  • 2-quart baking dish


  1. Kick things off by preheating your oven to 350°F.
  2. Trim excess fat off your 2 lb steak, slice it into slim strips, and dice it into bite-sized pieces. 
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and toss in your steak pieces, cooking until they are two-thirds done.
  4. Next, add your chopped onion, minced garlic, and green bell peppers to the skillet. Saute until the steak is fully cooked and the vegetables have softened.
  5. Remove your skillet from heat and drain any remaining liquid.
  6. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish and transfer your cooked steak and vegetables into it. 
  7. Rip 4 slices of your provolone cheese into small pieces and tuck them into your steak and vegetable mixture.
  8. In a separate bowl, whisk together your 4 large eggs, 1 tsp of ground black pepper, 1 3/4 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of onion powder, 1/2 Tbs of cayenne pepper sauce, 1 Tbs of Worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 cup of almond flour until fully combined.
  9. Pour this egg mixture evenly over your steak and vegetables in the baking dish. A little shake and a tap should help it settle nicely.
  10. Bake your casserole, uncovered, in the middle of your preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  11. After 25 minutes, remove your dish from the oven and drape the remaining 4 slices of provolone cheese over the top. 
  12. Pop your casserole back into the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is perfectly melted.
  13. Let your casserole cool slightly before serving, then dive into the divine combination of robust steak, crunchy veggies, and gooey cheese. Pure bliss!
