An Easy Low Carb Dinner: Philly Cheesesteak Skillet
You can never have enough one skillet meals! You probably feel similarly, right? They are so easy to make and the clean up is usually a breeze because, hello?! One skillet.
Watch How to Make This Recipe
This easy Philly Cheesesteak Skillet is a one skillet dream that everyone loves. Tender steak, crisp veggies, and melty cheese all in one dish.
The best part is that everything comes together in just under thirty minutes!
Steak: I have tested a couple of different cuts of steak for this recipe and my favorite by far are sirloin steak or flank steak. Use a sharp knife to cut the steak thinly. To make getting a thin slice even easier, I recommend putting the steak in the freezer for a bit before slicing.
Bell Peppers: The classic philly cheesesteak veggies – peppers. You will need both a small red and green bell pepper.
Mushrooms: If you hate mushrooms, feel free to leave these out. Otherwise, go ahead and add in those baby bellas!
Onion: You cannot have a philly cheesesteak without plenty of onion.
Coconut Aminos: To keep this recipe gluten free, it calls for coconut aminos to add in some extra flavor instead of worcestershire sauce.
Apple Cider Vinegar: This also helps to give the skillet a bit of extra flavor and zip.
Cheese: This recipe calls for a combination of both mozzarella and pecorino romano cheeses for the top. If you don’t want to use two cheeses, feel free to just use shredded mozzarella.
How to Make This Cheesy Skillet
Step One: Add the thinly sliced steak to a small mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper. Stir until the steak is well coated.
Step Two: Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Once the skillet is hot, add in a tablespoon of avocado or coconut oil. Next, add the steak to the skillet and cook for two to three minutes on each side until browned. Once the steak is brown, remove it from the skillet and set aside.
Step Three: Add the coconut aminos and vinegar to the skillet and stir to release any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Next, add the peppers, onion, and mushrooms to the skillet and cook the veggies until the peppers are tender but still crisp.
Step Four: Add the steak back to the skillet and stir until everything is well combined. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and then cover with a lid to allow the cheese to melt. Once the cheese has melted, remove the skillet from the heat and serve immediately!
How to Serve Your Philly Cheesesteak Skillet
If you want to keep things low carb, this recipe is great on it’s own with a salad or your favorite veggie on the side. Of course you could also serve this with a baked potato or go the traditional route and slice up your favorite gluten free roll and make a gluten free Philly cheesesteak!
I hope you give this Philly Cheesesteak Skillet a try! It’s the perfect one-pan weeknight dinner!

This was a delicious recipe. I added extra mushrooms and used an italian blend of cheese because that is what I had on hand. I served bread for an open faced sandwich. Another great recipe!!
Substituted boneless skinless chicken breast for the beef but followed the directions to a T otherwise. Fast and delicious!
The family loved this recipe. Made some tweaks…Marinated steak overnight in coconut amino’s and used TJ’s unexpected cheddar on top.
This was such a quick and delicious meal! It came together in no time and everyone in my family loved it, including my two kiddos!
Another great recipe! Super simple but tastes great 🙂 thank you!
I made this dish for dinner last night and it was a home run! So easy and delicious. My husband immediately said it had to be added to the dinner rotation. Thanks for sharing this great weeknight dinner idea!
This was so simple yet so amazing!! My husband said we are definitely making this one again. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
Just made this and it’s delicious! Excellent week night meal. My husband and I live in Philly and definitely approve. He’s a cheesesteak lover and even approved this lightened up version.
So delicious and easy to make! My fiancé loved it and we will certainly make it again! The simplicity of the coconut aminos and the apple cider vinegar for “sauce” was great! We made it with baked potatoes and will certainly make it again soon!
I’m allergic to coconut. Is there an alternative?
Hi, Dana! you could sub the coconut aminos for soy sauce if you like.
When do I put the garlic in?
Hi, Suzanne! You’ll add the garlic with the rest of the veggies. Hope that helps!
Hi Ashlea! We loved this recipe! My fiance declared this his new favorite dinner recipe (tied with your lemon pepper baked wings!)! I love the healthy spin you put on the classics! Keep em coming 🙂 Thank you!
You’re so welcome, Erin! I’m so glad you all have enjoyed the recipes! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!
Ashley’s recipe knock it out of the park every time! So tasty
I’m so glad you liked it, Faith! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!
So easy and delicious !!
It notes garlic but the recipes doesn’t say when to add it in. I assume with the steak ?
Hi, Tara! Yes! The garlic will go in with the steak!
Such an easy flavorful weeknight meal! I served it over the Alexia garlic fries I threw in the air fryer! Love Love!!
sounds delicious! So glad you loved the recipe!
One of my GO TO recipes!! It’s not only phenomenal but soooo so easy! I’ve even made it for dinner guests! Have also added jalapeño for a little extra kick! Highly recommend!!
Thanks for sharing, Laura! I’m so happy you loved the recipe!

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Arya!
This was a fantastic recipe, easy to make and even easier to eat! Lots of flavor, minimal clean up. So many ways to serve it. We ate with just a salad on the side…and didn’t even miss the bread. Thank you for sharing this wonderful, lightened up version of a pub favorite.
So glad you loved the recipe, Maureen!
This looks amazing. Is it considered keto?
Thank you! I don’t follow a keto diet so I’m not sure on that. It is lower carb.
So easy and so delicious! We will definitely make this again, might add some jalapeños for a little spice!
I’m so glad you loved it, Mireille!
I don’t like coconut. Why do I have to add it
The rest sounds fantastic
Hi, Linda! The recipe calls for coconut aminos not coconut. I hope you love the recipe!
This was SO delicious! The apple cider vinegar and coconut aminos combo makes a yummy and unexpected sauce on the meat and veggies. Will be making again soon! HIGHLY recommend adding this to your weekly rotation.
I’m so glad you loved the recipe, Lizzy! Thank you for taking the time to share and leave a review!
Holy smokes. This is so flavorful and delicious. I doubled the recipe; party of 6 over here. I also cooked the steaks whole and then sliced them after cooking. This recipe is whole family approved (from 4 years to 40). 😉
I’m so glad everyone loved the recipe, Pamela! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review!
So delicious! I used provolone cheese instead of mozzarella and Parmesan. This made 5-6 servings, I have a ton leftover. We loved it!
I’m so glad you loved it, Chelsea!
Another super easy, super delicious meal. One skillet and done. Plus you can easily change out the meat of choice to what you have in your fridge. Tonight I added zucchini in the skillet and my 6yo. loved it (new vegetable). Woohoo!
That sounds delicious, Laurie! Thank you for sharing!
This was SO delicious. And easy to make. I have made steak and cheese before, but this took it to another level . I served it on a roll but could totally see it over greens too. My husband already asked when I can make it again. Thank you!!!
I’m so glad y’all enjoyed it, Kim!
This Philly cheesesteak skillet is amazing! I really like that you can substitute chicken if you prefer and that it is one pan and done. So flavorful! Thank you
You’re welcome, Laurie!
This was so flavorful and delicious! I will definitely make it again. Thank you so much! 🙂
I’m so glad you loved it, Alyssa!
Sooooo goood!! Think I’ve made this once a week for the past month! So easy and so quick!!
Thanks for sharing, Hillary!
The Philly cheesesteak skillet is SO good. It has become a favorite in our meal rotation! Do yourself a favor and make this! (Even my husband who can’t eat dairy loves it without the cheese – it’s great over spinach and my kids love it on crusty bread)
Love the idea of serving it over spinach, Lauren! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!
Another great recipe that my husband loved. I don’t eat meat, but want yummy meals to make for my husband. He almost ate it all. So adding this to my recipe bookmark. Thank you!
Yay! I’m so happy your husband enjoyed it. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!
So happy you loved it, Kathryn!
This was delicious! I had a block of parmesan on hand so I subbed that in place of the pecorino roman and it was still perfect. I don’t usually like mushrooms but I found myself enjoying them in this recipe. Served on hoagie rolls. We doubled the recipe and it was enough for three meals for me & my husband. This will definitely go into the rotation for nights that I need a quick, easy, and delicious meal! Ashlea and ATHT haven’t let me down yet!
So happy you loved it, Emily! Love the ideas you shared to make it your own!
Delicious!! Will definitely be making again!
So glad you loved it, Aimee!
So easy and delicious. Love serving it in siete tortillas! Thank you for a great go to dinner that will be in our rotation!
Such a great idea, Erin! Thanks for leaving a review!
My husband isn’t the biggest fan of mushrooms in cheesesteaks but he loved them in recipe!
Yay! Love that! So happy he was a fan!
This was so delicious! Super easy and a perfect dinner this evening!
So glad you loved the recipe, Sara Beth!
Wow this is so good and so easy!!!
Thanks, Liz! Glad you loved it!
Made this for a Friday night date night and it was an instant hit! The flavors of this skillet were perfection. We added baby Bella’s and I wouldn’t change a thing. Served this on a soft roll and it was what dreams were made of. Truly thankful to have found your recipes, they never disappoint!
So happy to hear that, Melissa! Glad you loved the recipe!
This is one of my favorite recipes ever!! It is so easy and so delicious.
So glad you love it, Brooke!
Made this last night, so good!! My husband said this is the best Philly cheesesteak he’s ever had! I ate it low-carb but he had it on a roll. This recipe was perfect for us, thanks for the recipe!
You’re so welcome, Chelsea! I’m glad you both loved it!
This was so easy and delicious. My husband had three portions! Thank you!
You’re welcome, Meagan! Happy you enjoyed the recipe!
Super easy and delicious. Definitely a keeper!
Glad you loved it, Thel!
I made this the other night and it was so easy and delicious! I will definitely make it again.
I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Stephanie!
So easy and so good! Two things that most people like in the same meal. Definitely going into the rotation!
Happy you enjoyed it, Marilyn!
This meal is delicious and so easy to make on a busy night! Definitely adding it to the rotation.
Yay! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, Jessica!
Super easy and delish! Bring on all the cheese, please 🙂 Reminded me of home: Philly!
Yes! Happy you loved it, Anna!
Wow! Flavorful, hearty, easy, and (perhaps one of my favorite recipe attributes) forgiving. I had an issue with my iPad and ended up working through the recipe mostly from my memory of having read through it twice, with one or two hasty trips to the desktop in my bedroom. I definitely failed to have my pan hot enough when I started searing the steak (oops), but the dish still turned out fabulous. I’m sure it will be even better next time when I’m a more diligent follower of the steps as written!
Happy you loved it, Nita!
This was SO GOOD. My Pennsylvania native husband gave it emphatic thumbs up. I used sliced provolone for the cheese, because that is what I had on hand. This is definitely a great weeknight meal to have in the back pocket.
Wow! So glad you and your husband loved this, Sandie!
This is so freaking good and easy. Once everything is prepped it comes together in no time and is so full of flavor. I don’t say this lightly but you don’t even miss the bread.
Yay! Happy you enjoyed the recipe, Rebecca!
