How to make Low Carb Philly Cheeseburger Skillet Dinner

This one is from Linda’s Low Carb Menus and Recipes ( This fabulous resource has been around for many years, and in my previous low-carb days I remember using her site regularly for meal ideas. I’ve recently started going back there because there are plenty of quick, easy ideas there that don’t require a lot of different ingredients – I like quick and easy meals!
This would suit most low carb plans, including LCHF. It may not be beautiful, but I found it quite tasty – my husband enjoyed it too, though he added a bit of hot sauce for extra flavour.
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, sliced, 3 ounces
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (226g)
1 green pepper, cut in strips, about 5 ounces
1 red pepper, cut in strips, about 5 ounces
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 ounces American cheese, cut up, 6 slices (113g)
In a large skillet or wok, brown the meat with the onion; drain the grease. Add the mushrooms, green pepper and garlic. Stir-fry until the green peppers are tender-crisp, seasoning with salt and pepper.
Stir in the cheese and cook over low heat until melted.
