Skinny Cheesesteak Sandwiches
I don’t post enough sandwich recipes on this blog and they are actually one of my favorite things to make for quick weeknight meals when I don’t feel like making a big dinner. This Skinny Cheesesteak is one of those sandwiches!
I’m not going to call this a Philly Cheesesteak because all the Philly peeps out there will cut me and send me hate mail. For real. People are very protective of their classic cheesesteak sandwiches and I’m not going to go there! This is simply a lightened up version of the classic Philly favorite!
So how is this cheesesteak lighter? First, we use lean flank steak over more fatty beefsteak. Second, we load up on more veggies. Then we swap out the traditional processed cheese sauce with a new sauce made with provolone cheese and Parmesan cheese. Oh! And one more trick is to scoop out some of the extra bread. I personally HATE biting into a sandwich that is mostly bread, yuck! I need a much bigger filling to bread ratio with my sandwiches. I always scoop out some of the bread out of sandwich rolls. It’s a great way to save a few extra calories and carbs!
This skinnified cheesesteak is delicious and at just under 400 calories, it is way lower in fat compared to traditional cheesesteaks.
Don’t want to go through the trouble of making the cheese sauce? No problem! Just places a slice of provolone cheese on top of each sandwich and stick under the broiler until melted. Recipe slightly adapted from Cooking Light
