Bunless Steak and (Maybe) Cheese

Lately, I have been missing one of my favorite sandwiches – a steak and cheese. Philly or otherwise I love a good steak and cheese! However, when you aren’t eating bread it’s hard to fulfill this particular craving.

So, I decided to make a bunless – sort of deconstructed – steak and (maybe no cheese) version. 🙂 When I took the pictures for this post I decided to slip in a piece of provolone cheese, but it is equally delicious without the cheese. If I don’t do the cheese I usually add some hot sauce to spice up the whole thing. You could also serve this recipe in some lettuce leaves to make a steak and cheese “wrap.”

Bunless Steak and Cheese

Recipe by: Jamie Boden at My Beautiful Ideal


  • 1 tablespoon, olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon, garlic
  • 1 package sliced mushrooms – button or baby portabello
  • 1 teaspoon, salt
  • 1 teaspoon, pepper
  • 2 bell peppers (any color), sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 pound, fully cooked, thinly sliced roast beef

Optional toppings: provolone cheese or hot sauce.


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Add garlic and mushrooms. Cook mushrooms until they have browned, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Then, add the sliced peppers and onions.
  4. Season with the salt and pepper.
  5. Cook until onions are translucent, about 5-8 minutes.
  6. Add the thinly sliced roast beef and cook until beef is heated through.
  7. If you are adding the cheese, I recommend melting it under the broiler for about 5 minutes. If not, just plate up half the mixture and add some hot sauce on top and enjoy!

    • No problem, thanks for checking the recipe out! And I just went over to your blog and it is wonderful! I just read “Let’s Talk Work Life and Food” and I 100% feel you on this post. Yesterday I went to a meeting and there were cakes, scones, muffins, and bagels! I really wanted all of them, but opted for the healthy snack I had brought instead….but the struggle was real! Can’t wait to see what you blog about next, and thanks for the comment.
