Philly Cheesesteak Lettuce Cups

By Debe Pendice

Replacing the bun with lettuce in this recipe not only cuts the carbs but adds extra nutrients to this delicious dish.

Philly Cheesesteak Lettuce Cups
Ingredients
  • 3 ounces lean beef steak

  • 1/3 cup sliced mushrooms

  • 1/4 cup tinly sliced onions

  • 1 slice fat-free American cheese

  • 2 leaves romaine, butter or green leaf lettuce

Directions
  1. Slice meat into thin strips

  2. Coat medium pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add mushrooms and onions; cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are slightly browned. Set aside.

  3. Remove pan from heat and re-coat with nonstick cooking spray. Cook steak strips over medium heat for 1-2 minutes, flipping halfway through.

  4. Break cheese slice into small strips. Place cheese on top of meat—still in the pan— and continue to cook until cheese melts.

  5. Remove from heat; mix beef strips with veggies and serve on lettuce leaves.

We do subs in our house a lot, and this will be a great alternative for me to skip all that bread. Thanks

Sounds wonderful to me. I'm going to suggest this to my next door neighbor. She is always having ladies over for cards and she serves them lunch. This would make a great main dish.
