Philly Cheese Steak Recipe

Ingredients:
– 1 lb lean flank steak, cut into 8 thin slices
– 1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
– 1 medium sized green bell pepper, thinly sliced and de-seeded
– 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
– 1/4 tsp table salt
– 1/4 tsp black pepper
– 4 high fiber sandwich rolls (between 90-140 calories each)
– 4 slices fat free American cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a large nonstick skillet with non-fat cooking spray and sauté onions and green peppers over medium high heat until tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove onions & green peppers from pan; set aside. Add steak slices to skillet and sauté until browned and cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper; cook until liquid is absorbed. Divide steak evenly between 4 buns and top each sandwich with onions, peppers and a slice of cheese. (I sliced my cheese in half to make it easier to cover the whole length of the sandwich. Wrap in foil, transfer to oven and bake until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.

    Just saw this recipe, it looks amazing, one question is the 7 points the old points or the points plus? I can’t wait to give this a try….

  3. Tried these and used the Sara Lee "Lite" wheat hotdog buns and the WW American Cheese slices. Absolutely delicious!!

  4. Would using chicken tenderloin strips, cut into pieces, reduce the caloric value of this?

    • Absolutely. Using chicken breast tenderloin instead would probably knock about 2 points off. You'll have to add up all the calories/fat/fiber of couse in order to get an accurate new point count, but using chicken instead of beef will definitely lower it.

  5. What kind of rolls are pictured and where do I find them? They look awesome.

    • These were store brand rolls from Trader Joe's. It's not always easy to find low calorie rolls, so you'll really have to look at the labels when you are at the store. And don't be afraid to check ALL brands…you'd be surprised at what you can find. Also, look for rolls that are higher in fiber…that will help to keep the points count low.
