Ever since Ashley started full-time work, he’s asked me for “help” to meal prep (do 90% of the work)
The main challenge I had was to find recipes that were easy, tasty but still healthy. Each week, it started to become an activity for us to find a new and exciting recipe for him to try out. Thankfully, Ash is a great sport and eats everything that I cook, even if these “healthy meals” end up not tasting so great (I’m looking at you roasted chicken and cauliflower lol). Every now and then, we get some winners!
One of these winners is the Philly Cheesesteak
Recipe was adapted from MealPreponFleek
The best (but not the cheapest) meat to buy for this meal are some Scotch Fillets, sliced as thin as you can. While I mentioned earlier that I usually do 90% (or sometimes 100%) of the work in creating these meals, this is one that Ash did quite a lot. As you would know, he’s a big meat-eater, so he took it upon himself to ensure the right meat was bought, and that they were cooked to perfect. He, however, did not slice the meat himself hahah.
After seasoning and cooking them over high-heat on a cast iron skillet, chuck the cheese on top to let them melt and ooze over the beef. We like to do a mix of both Provolone and American Cheddar cheese to give it that delicious flavour. Now, you can stop here and throw them in to some hoagies (white sub) for a normal sandwich.
But, because they were “healthy” lunchboxes for Ashley, we opted to include the salad in the above recipe, but on the side. Mushrooms, capscium, onions with some Worcestershire sauce to boost up your veggie intake.
Not for the lactose intolerant, but great if you’re after a low carb meal!
