Pepper Steak Stromboli is not only delicious but, budget friendly, too. It allows you to wrap-up leftovers in pizza dough and stretch them into a spectacular meal the whole family can enjoy.
Pepper Steak Stromboli Turns Premade Pizza Dough Into a 5 Star Meal
You may be wondering, why use premade pizza dough? Well, in this particular instance it’s because it makes prep faster and easier, it’s readily available and most importantly, it will cook all the way through not leaving you with a gooey finished product. I adore making my own pizza dough and I do so quite often. I love setting up a toppings bar and letting everyone make a personal pizza their way. It makes for a fun family dinner that my boys have come to love. For this stromboli, I chose to use premade dough for the ease of preparation and I assure you when you’re done assembling this, no one will notice or care.
Transform Steak Into a Completely Different Meal
We’re all mindful of how we spend money these days, especially with a hungry family to feed. Because of this, I find it helpful when grilling to prepare more than we need for our meal, so we can have a “round two” meal another day. Not only does it save money, but precious family time as well. Grilled sirloin can easily be transformed into a completely different meal. Roll it up in pizza dough, then top with crisp cooked bell peppers and onions, adding mushrooms if you like, and layer with cheese. While the stromboli bakes, prepare a salad filled with your choice of leafy greens and fresh crispy vegetables and you can have a perfect pairing on the table in around 30 minutes.
