Philly Cheesesteak Salad Bowl

Salad. That was probably one of my least favourite words growing up. Though I’m a giant fan of all kinds of veggies, I really always thought of salads in terms of the same old iceberg wedge with your choice of the same red, Italian or ranch dressings. If you’re with me and sick of the same old salad, be fully prepared to be amazed. I’m gonna help you take your salad game to the next level!

Introducing the Philly Cheesesteak Salad Bowl. With oven fries. Hell yeahhhhhh.

These Philly Cheesesteak Salad Bowls are reminiscent of my favourite sub from Quizno’s – you know the one with mushrooms, thin-sliced steak, red onions and a sweet honey-djion dressing? My mouth is already watering just thinking about it. Take out the heavy bread and the processed meat and cheese, and you’ve got my delicious, wholesome version atop a bed of arugula and healthier russet potato oven fries. Super tasty and low-calorie for a win-win, quick dinner!

As you can tell I absolutely love my oven fries, but the great part about giant salad bowls is that you can switch things up according to your tastes and dietary needs. I for one am trying to cut down the amount of wheat and bread that I eat for dinner so adding potatoes, quinoa or brown rice is something I’ve tried to commit to for dinner instead of heavier pastas and other starches.

Now I bet you’re wondering about the steak. To be honest, I used a really cheap cut of meat to save money – it’s more about the marinade that you use for this recipe and getting the beef as thinly sliced as possible. To get a super thin slice, freeze it for a good hour in order to cut it easier. Also, be sure not to fry it for longer than 2-3 minutes to avoid overcooking it, especially if you’re like me and cheaping out. 😉

Now as much as I have gone on about the meat and fries, the sautéed veggies are what totally make this delicious bowl and it’s important that you have lots of them! I added red and green peppers and red onion, then placed some arugula on the side. You can use any of your favourite kind of greens, or even just stir-fry some more veggies for a completely warm salad bowl. It’s really up to you – this bowl is your oyster!

    This is an amazing idea! I love that you’ve taken something that is usually so carb and fat heavy and turned it into something much lighter! Great idea 🙂

    I really love salads like this! I never have made a steak salad though…I’m glad to have the tips. Steak is kind of daunting to me for some reason. I don’t buy it or eat it that often, but I like the idea of this!

      Thanks Michelle! Steak is not that hard but one piece of advice: always undercook it! It will keep cooking even after you take it off the heat!

    Such a fantastic idea to make a Philly cheese steak into a bowl! I can’t wait to make these – my husband went to college in Philadelphia and has such fond memories of eating Philly cheese steaks – I think he’s been hoping I’d make them. I might just surprise him with your version!

    I love this idea! Food always tastes so much better served out of a bowl for some reason. I bet this would be delicious over rice or quinoa too!
