Packed with protein and flavor but lower fat than traditional cheesesteak. Perfect for Gastric Sleeve or Bypass patients! #wlsrecipes #wlsinstantpot #wlscrockpot #gastricsleeve #gastricbypass

With or without cheese…this meal is awesome.

In fact, I ate leftovers the next day without the cheese and it was wonderful! The moisture in the beef is outstanding and the flavors will make you very happy.

My secret weapon for this meal: my Simple Slicer from Pampered Chef. This thing is great for slicing peppers and onions…which I useĀ all the time for fajitas or when I make my zucchini lasagna.

I chose the leanest and least expensive cut of beef. I found a chuck roast, without visible fat, on sale at Target for $10. It was way worth the expensive and still much cheaper than dinner out!

  1. Hi Steph I had a questions about the crockpot cheese steak and peppers recipe. I see the recipe says there is 8 serving sizes in it but was wondering if they were a cup or 1/2 cup or so forth?

    Such a great question. One thing I will say is when I give servings I’m not telling my readers how much they are supposed to eat. My style is to eat two bites of protein to every one bite of vegetable and stop at the first sign of fullness. That’s different for everyone. I share ‘servings’ as a guide as to how much food the recipe will make but not tell someone how much to eat.

    That being said meats usually shrink about 25% when they are cooked. So 4 ounces of chicken becomes 3 ounces of chicken. For a recipe that is 2 pounds of beef it would then become 1.5 pounds of meat. That becomes 24 ounces. If one serving is 3 ounces this would make 8 servings.

    So my long answer to your question is that this recipe makes 8 servings that are 3 ounces of meat each. That is roughly the palm of your hand.
