I’m not big on eating a ton of bread, so instead of the traditional Philly Cheesesteak, I went with a Philly Cheesesteak Baked Burritos recipe.
My husband is a steak guy.
Anytime I want to earn bonus wife points, I make steak (not that I need the bonus points lol).
We saw a commercial for some restaurant’s Philly Cheesesteaks, I saw his face light up, and I knew I had to make them.
I am a minimalist when it comes to seasoning steaks- olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, a tiny sprinkle of sugar. Done!
Cook in a skillet 5-7 minutes per side on medium-high and let it rest on a cutting board.
In the same skillet cook your sliced onions, green peppers, and mushrooms about 10-12 minutes.
Assembling the Philly Cheesesteak Baked Burritos
Assembling the burritos was easy, in each tortilla just lay 2 slices provolone cheese, a few slices of steak, some veggies, fold up and brush with the seasoned olive oil.
My kids like most veggies, but not this mixture.
We compromised and I made theirs with no veggies, but served with carrot sticks at dinner.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 425 and this is what you will see!
Crispy, golden deliciousness! My thinking for the sauce was simple.
Traditionally just mayo goes on a Philly Cheesesteak.
I really wasn’t loving the idea of drizzling or dipping straight mayo on my burrito.
So, I went with light mayo (not that it matters too much with the steak and cheese, but hey, give me credit for at least trying to cut calories whenever possible).
I thinned it out with a little milk, added worchestire, and horseradish sauce because we like things with a little kick).
And that’s the story of how I earned my bonus wife points with Philly Cheesesteak Baked Burritos. I cashed them in for him doing the dishes and we were all happy 🙂
