RATING

Philly Steak & Cheese Omelet, my low carb, easy recipe. Great recipe for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!!
Everyone craves a steak & cheese sandwich once in a while, but all those carbs can ruin a good diet! I’ve revamped with my version of Philly Steak & Cheese with a low carb omelet.
By preparing the  fillings in advance, I used leftover steak from last nights dinner – breakfast, lunch or dinner  be ready whenever you get hungry for a taste of Philly sensation! A creative spin on the popular Philly Cheese Steak sandwich, this omelette  thinly sliced beef, caramelized onions & bell peppers and good cheddar cheese into a fluffy egg omelette instead of a hoagie roll.

Philly Cheesesteak Omelet dd websiteINGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (any oil you have on hand is ok)
  • 1 small sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 small pepper, diced
  • 4 ounces rib-eye steak, trimmed and thinly sliced (I use leftover NY Strip from dinner last night, just reheat)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt (kosher or any salt will do)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 carton (16 oz each) Egg Beaters® Original ( or 4 – 6 eggs)
  • 1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (can use low fat cheese of your choice)
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato Ketchup  (I use marinara sauce – watch for low carb)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Heat oil in large oven-safe, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add onions. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until onions are tender. Remove from skillet; set aside.
  2. Add steak to skillet; season with oregano, salt and pepper. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until steak is browned.  Add to onions; set aside.
  3. Pour Egg Beaters or whisked eggs into skillet; cook 3 minutes or until edges start to set. Gently lift edges while tilting pan and allow uncooked Egg Beaters to run under the set portion; repeat this step twice. Cook about 5 minutes, or until center is set.
  4. Remove from heat; top omelet evenly with steak mixture. Sprinkle with cheese; place skillet in oven 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese melts.
  5. Slide omelet onto serving platter; drizzle top with ketchup/marinara sauce. Cut into four wedges; serve immediately.

COOK’S TIP

Philly Steak & Cheese Omelet.. If you prefer eggs very firmly set in center, invert omelet in skillet just before topping with remaining ingredients. Or, simply cover skillet with lid and cook to desired firmness before topping.
