Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak (Whole30, Low Carb)

This Whole30-friendly Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak is an easy and delicious 30-minute weeknight meal you’ll want over and over again! 

Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak

I grew up in the east coast in a small suburban town in New Jersey. I do identify myself as a New Yorker because I spent 10 years there starting in college, but throughout all that time, I’ve made several trips to Philadelphia which was close and convenient enough to jump on a bus and go.

There, I’ve had countless number of Philly cheesesteaks (half of them sober) and they were freakin’ delicious. What’s not to love about thinly sliced steak and veggies covered in cheese all nestled in a bun?

These days, I avoid cheese and bread so I decided to make my own allergen-friendly version, and this Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak takes me right back to my college days. This version is also super easy because everything is baked in one pan, making the cooking and cleaning process a breeze without sacrificing on the flavor. My husband, who is the dishwasher in the house, loves sheet pan meals especially!

Keeping It Dairy and Gluten Free

Philly cheesesteaks are usually served with melted provolone cheese, but I decided to make a delicious and creamy cashew cheese to drizzle over the cooked meat and vegetables instead. The combination of textures and flavors is just so delicious and you won’t miss the dairy at all!

As for the bread, I don’t really miss that part so I just eat this Paleo Philly Cheesesteak alone (the filling is the best part, after all), but if you want, you can get gluten free bread or even tortillas to eat it like tacos. I really love Canyon Bakehouse hot dog buns or Siete Foods Tortillas.

Just because you are avoiding dairy, gluten, or any other food groups, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy delicious foods! You just gotta get a bit creative in the kitchen. Hope you enjoy this Sheet Pan Paleo Philly Cheesesteak, and please comment with your feedback because I love reading them.

Whole30 Mongolian Beef (Paleo, Keto, AIP Option)

This easy Keto and Whole30 Mongolian Beef is so much healthier and tastier than takeout and it only takes 20 minutes to make, with an AIP option!

Whole30 Mongolian Beef

Did you hear? My Korean Paleo cookbook cover image is finalized and I shared it on social media! I’m honestly so stoked about how it looks and can’t wait to share more details about preorder gifts soon, so make sure to go preorder your copy.

I don’t know if it’s because I’ve had my cookbook on my mind, but I’ve been craving Asian food more and more recently. One of my favorite Chinese food takeout menu items used to Mongolian beef, but even as a kid, I remember thinking how sweet it was from all the brown sugar.

Whole30 Mongolian Beef Recipe

Well, as someone who likes to keep her sugar intake low these days, I decided to make a Whole30 version of Mongolian Beef without any added sugar and it turned out fantastic. The yummy flavor comes from coconut aminos, which has a natural sweet taste especially when cooked down like it’s done in this recipe.

The garlic ginger sauce is so dang delicious, and it only take 20 minutes from start to finish! Definitely my kind of meal on busy weeknights.

Keeping It Low Carb

This Whole30 Mongolian Beef is fantastic on its own, but if you want a delicious side that goes well with it, serve it with some cauliflower rice! This keeps it low carb, keto, AIP, and Whole30-compliant. If you are fine with eating real rice, then you do you, boo! There’s no wrong way to eat anything and we just gotta do what feels right for our body.

AIP Option

This recipe is really easy to adjust to make it AIP compliant. All you have to do is omit the crushed red pepper during cooking, as well as the sesame oil and sesame seeds added in at the end. It’ll still turn out delicious because the sauce is what makes this dish! It’s hard to beat the combination of coconut aminos, garlic, and ginger.

I hope you enjoy this Whole30 Mongolian Beef, that comes together quickly and easily. Let me know how yours turns out and comment below! I love getting your feedback on my recipes so I can keep improving and creating dishes that you love.

Chimichurri Skirt Steak

Whether you are eating paleo, Whole30, AIP, or keto, this Chimichurri Skirt Steak is the perfect celebratory menu item that comes together quickly and easily!

Chimichurri Skirt Steak Paleo

Is there anything better in this world than a properly grilled steak?? (No. The answer is no.) We grill steak about once every 2 weeks in our household and it’s definitely an indulgence. We only buy grass-fed, pasture-raised steaks from US Wellness Meats, and that can get a bit pricy if we aren’t careful. And when it’s a special treat like that, I get pretty devastated if it doesn’t taste right.

Thankfully, I’ve perfected my steak recipe over the past few years, and I love how it turns out almost every time now. And with the addition of my Creamy Chimichurri Sauce, it tastes amazing even when I overcook the steak sometimes.

If you don’t own a grill, you can broil your chimichurri skirt steak or cook it on a cast-iron skillet. The creamy tartness of the sauce compliments the steak perfectly and I can’t believe I only discovered this combo recently.

The best part, of course, is the leftovers, and I love to enjoy the steak the next day on a salad, tacos, or stir-fry. If you’ve been intimidated about cooking steak in the past, don’t be. It’s actually really easy, and the result is just so dang delicious!
