Introducing, Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna! A complete gathering of comfort foods – all in one dish. A hardy scrumptious family dinner with not much fuss, and something a little outside the normal lasagna (which I also love).
A good use for some leftover roast, I made these Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteak Subs, but I think this would work with just about any kind of beef you have on hand as long as it’s good and tender.
A traditional Philly would use ribeye, but that’s so expensive. If I’m buying ribeye we’re having steaks on the grill, rare, that’s just how we roll around here. I think even Steak-umms have gotten too pricey, but if there’s a good sale, you could go that route if you want.
Hamburger would be good, it’s good enough for traditional lasagna, so why wouldn’t it work here too?
We’ve been seeing buy one get one free sales on roasts this year, so I’ve been taking advantage of those as you can see with our Mississippi Pot Roast with Gravy and this Fancy Yankee Pot Roast. I tend to plan my meals around what’s on sale and I like to get the larger size so I can get more than one meal out of a nice hunk of meat.
So we try to brainstorm a little and think what else can we turn this into before we go to the store so we know what else to pick up. So kinda like the old saying “Kill two birds with one stone”.
Some easy tips for meal planning I’ve tried making a habit of over the years, doesn’t alway work out on busy days, but it is helpful to have a plan A and a well stocked pantry if you need a plan B. Helps keep us out of the fast food lane.
Now this might seem like more of a winter dish and we’re almost halfway through April, we’ll our weather doesn’t watch the same calendar we do. We get a couple teaser days of spring, or maybe even summer since it was 85 yesterday.
Doesn’t matter because they’re calling for a high of 42 on Sunday. Yayy, come to St. Louis if you get bored of your weather and make sure you bring a jacket, a winter coat and shorts and flip flops because you just might need all of them; even if your only here for two days!
This actually comes together pretty quick and you can use more or less peppers and onions; however you like, this is how we did it and I like to season each step.
Like I said I used a leftover slow cooked roast, sliced and cut into bite size pieces, but if you want to slice a flank steak thin and cook it up with the peppers and onions that would work just as well, you might need a little extra oil in the pan, or try it with hamburger.
Either way I’m sure would be delicious!
