Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
Brown your ground beef. In a large pan or skillet start cooking the beef breaking up any large chunks. Season with salt and pepper.
Sauté your vegetables. Add your chopped onions and peppers to the beef and cook for around 10 minutes over medium-high heat. Do this until the beef is golden brown. Once everything is ready add your parsley and stir until it's mixed in.
Transfer to an oven dish. Now we're almost ready to bake! Transfer the mixture to an ovenproof baking dish or casserole dish.
Add the cheese. Add dollops of cream cheese evenly over the surface of the mixture. Next, add the slices of provolone cheese on top making sure to cover it entirely.
Bake the casserole. Bake the casserole in your preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
Time to serve. Allow the casserole to cool for around 5 minutes and then serve hot. Make sure you cook enough because everyone will ask for seconds!
You can store any leftover casserole in an airtight container in the fridge. It will keep for up to 5 days.
Can You Freeze This Casserole?
Yes, this low carb cheesesteak casserole is excellent for freezing making it a great option for meal prepping.
Wait until the casserole has cooled to room temperature and then place it into freezer safe containers. Place them in the freezer and they will keep for up to 2 months.
To reheat from frozen, place the containers in the fridge overnight to thaw. Reheat in the microwave or in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) until heated all the way through.
Use steak - You can also use steak instead of ground beef in this recipe! Simply fry your steak and cut it into bite-sized pieces. Sauté the vegetables separately and then add in the steak pieces.
Meal prep - Prepare a double or triple batch and freeze in portions. When you need a quick and easy meal just heat in the oven or microwave.

Very easy and tasty! Had a side salad and drizzled ranch over everything, will definitely make again!
We love this. Been doing LC keto since 1974 and love to find new recipes., especially if they are easy.
Great to hear Jackie, glad you are enjoying the recipes!
Can you substitute ground chicken or turkey for the beef?
Also how much butter should be used? I did not see that in the recipe but I may have missed it.
Hi Kat, you can definitely replace the ground beef with ground chicken or turkey and it'll be just as delicious 🙂
I've updated the recipe to show the butter, you just need about a tablespoon to cook the ground meat and veggies.
Hope that helps!
This recipe went together quickly and had great flavor. Thank you for sharing. I will be making this again.
Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the kind words 🙂
