I know that title sounds a little odd but trust me when I say this is so good. My husband actually came up with this by changing some of the ingredients in my traditional pizza bread recipe (I will post later about that one). One recipe makes 2 loaves of bread so there is enough for the whole family.
Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Bread
A different take on the classic Philly Cheesesteak
- 2 loaves of frozen bread dough, thawed per instructions on bag
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cups cooked steak, chopped (We use petite sirloin and just grill it)
- 1 poblano pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1/2 sweet onion, peeled and chopped
- 6 slices provolone cheese, halved
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add poblano pepper, green bell pepper and onion. Stir and cover.
Continue cooking for about 15-20 minutes or until the peppers and onion are soft. Turn off heat and set aside.
On a clean surface, flatten 1 thawed loaf of bread dough.
In the middle of the flattened dough, add 6 (halved) slices of provolone. Top with half of the pepper mixture and 1 cup of steak. Make sure to leave 1 inch on all sides of dough.
Using a clean pair of scissors, cut a 1 inch slit up the side of the loaf. Continue cutting slits, spacing 1 inch apart. Repeat on other side leaving the top and bottom alone.
Take the top of the dough and fold over onto the steak. Then take one section of the dough and pull it all the way to the other side of the loaf and secure by pinching it. Repeat with all sections, making a braid like pattern. Before you braid the last section, take the bottom piece and fold over onto the cheese. The take the last 2 sections and braid and secure.
Repeat with second loaf of dough.
Put both loaves on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or under it begins to brown.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing like you do a loaf of bread.
