This easy dinner idea comes with everything love about the classic sandwich, in casserole form, topped with crispy tater tots — YUM!
What’s in this Philly Cheesesteak Casserole?
You don’t need a long list of ingredients to make this tasty meal. In fact, you just need just 6 ingredients:
• Ground beef (or use shaved steak)
• Green bell pepper
• Mushroom – optional but highly recommend!
• Provolone cheese
• Tater tots
That’s it other than some salt and pepper to season things. Yes, it’s as easy at it sounds to prep.
How to Make this Cheesesteak Casserole
You can cook the beef, peppers, onion and mushrooms all together in a large skillet to save time. Layer that into an 8×8 baking dish them top with provolone cheese and tater tots. Bake in the oven until tots are nice and crispy, about 30 minutes.
Lower the Fat
Here’s a little tip for lowering the fat in this dish: drain your ground beef after cooking. Also, choose a lean blend of beef or steak to start with. If you find this leaves your dish lacking flavor, add in a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce to your lean meat.
Extra Seasoning for Your Meat
I love steak and ground beef with just salt and pepper but if you’re craving something a little more here are some ideas to spice things up. Trying adding garlic or onion powder to your ground beef (or steak) when you cook it. Or you can opt to use pre-seasoned and pre-cooked shaved steak. You can actually find this at most grocery stores.
Some herbs that go well to enhance to flavor of Philly cheesesteak beef are: paprika, chili powder, thyme, marjoram and basil. Any or all of these would be great additions to your meat; adding them in as you cook or heat your meat.
