Bread is great and all, but I’ve come to realize that it’s really not the star of the show for so many of the foods I love.thought I needed the bread for the ideal flavor, but it’s actually just the carb-filled vehicle on which my favorite flavors arrive. Like pizza — for most of my life I thought I loved the crust the most, but after making recipes like keto pizza casserole, I’ve realized it’s actually the cheese, meat, and sauce that I adore.

Whether you feel the same way or you’re not quite there yet, I invite you to try these delicious Philly Cheesesteak-inspired keto lettuce wraps! Instead of 50+ grams of carbs (undoubtedly leaving to a carb coma), these lettuce wraps contain so much of that Philly cheesesteak flavor with only 3g net carbs. Your waistline will thank you, and I think your tastebuds will be pretty darn happy too.

Why You’ll Love this Keto Lettuce Wraps Recipe

  • It’s family-friendly and versatile. If your family isn’t on keto and doesn’t want to go the lettuce wrap route, that’s no problem! Toast up a few hoagies and serve the topping the “authentic” way for your non-keto family members.
  • It uses flavor-packed vegetables. Onions, green bell peppers, and red bell peppers pack a punch of flavor without adding a lot of carbs.
  • Each wrap is about 1/6 the carbs of a regular Philly Cheesesteak. That’s a huge improvement, to say the least!
  • You can get this on the table in about 20 minutes. It’s perfect for busy nights.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4
Calories: 512kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs. ribeye or flank steak cut into thin strips
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • lettuce leaves for wraps see notes
  • 1/2 cup shredded provolone cheese

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Once the pan is hot, add the beef, searing it on all sides and cooking it for several minutes until your desired level of doneness has been reached.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce to the beef plus salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
  • Remove the beef from the skillet. Place it on a plate and cover it to keep it warm.
  • To the skillet, add the butter, onion, and peppers and sauté until they begin to soften.
  • Place the meat back into the skillet, turn the heat down to low, and stir to combine.
  • Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool slightly. (If you immediately add the mixture to the lettuce leaves, the leaves will wilt.)
  • Once sufficiently cooled, add a serving of the mixture to lettuce leaf wraps and top each wrap with 2 tbsp shredded provolone cheese before serving.

Notes

  • The best lettuce leaves for wraps are butter/bibb lettuce, romaine lettuce, or iceberg lettuce.
  • For a slightly different cheesesteak experience, you can use lean ground beef instead of steak, or ground beef of any leanness drained of excess fat.
