Cheesesteak Skillet – WLS Recipe


Cheesesteak Skillet - Bariatric Recipe


Add this easy one-pot dinner to your weeknight menu! I love this recipe for the busy days when I work outside the house and need to do motherly duties, household chores, and (oh yeah) relax at some point with my husband. Spend less time on your meal to allow for more time to enjoy your evening!

Post-ops: I know I’m a broken record…BUT…it’s important!!! Take VERY small bites of this dense protein and be careful when you want to take a bite of all the ingredients to still stay mindful of how much is going in at once. It may seem tedious but this habit has tripped many a post-op and caused their hunger control to go south, snacking to increase and, well, you know what comes after that! Trust me. TAKE SMALL BITES!

PS I’ve been asked what seasoning packet I use for this recipe…while it doesn’t have to be this brand below is a photo visual!

  1. The recipe makes 4 “traditional” servings which is approximately 3.25 ounces per serving. I’m an advocate for not focusing on a set portion size as much as listening to natural fullness cues on when to stop, so the portion sizes are more individualized! But I do hope that helps ;)

  2. @Jennifer every program defines their stages differently so I cannot say exactly. For my patients this is a “regular” food as it uses ground beef and bell pepper. I would refer to your programs handouts to double check!
