Philly Cheese Steak Sliders

Philly Cheese Steak Sliders

As delicious as they are, traditional Philly cheese steaks are notorious for heartburn-inducing piles of greasy meat and oozing cheese on a processed white bread roll.

But with a few healthy tweaks, they can fit into your healthy eating plan.

By using fresh veggies, lean sirloin steak, and smaller whole-wheat rolls, you can get the same authentic flavor without the extra fat and calories.

Slap on a slice of provolone cheese and you’ve got yourself a meal!

Want more sliders ideas? (Who doesn’t?) Let Beachbody Super Trainer and 21 Day Fix creator Autumn Calabrese and her brother chef Bobby Calabrese teach you how to make Vegetarian Portobello Sliders on FIXATE, the exclusive Beachbody On Demand cooking show.

Pro tip: To make slicing sirloin easier, freeze it for approximately 30 minutes before slicing.
