Quick Tips for a Quick Low Carb Meal
I have found that using a skillet with a copper bottom helps to cook my foods more evenly and sometimes, faster than traditional skillets. This helps me to save time on cooking but also saves time on cleanup. No need to get a brillo out and scrape burned food off of the bottom of the pan when everything cooks evenly. Another way to save time when making this recipe is to buy pre-diced peppers and onions in the freezer aisle.

Now you can spend more time with your family while still enjoying a healthy low-carb meal. Less time working and more time enjoying the finer things in life, like this delicious quick dinner option.

This easy low-carb dinner is so simple to throw together, with very minimal prep-work. I also love how versatile it is.

You could try swapping out the beef for chicken to make a chicken cheesesteak that the whole family will love.
To make this recipe, start by drizzling olive oil in the bottom of a skillet. Turn on medium to high heat to warm the skillet while chopping the veggies.
The next step is to add the veggies to the skillet and cook on high heat for about 5-6 minutes, or until softened.
Then, add in the beef, allow to cook for about 2 minutes before adding in the cream cheese and seasonings.
Mix everything together to ensure everything is evenly coated with the seasoning and cream cheese.
Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes before adding the mozzarella to the top of the skillet. Cook until cheese has melted, this should take about 2 minutes on high heat. That’s it!
