1.5tbspOnion SaltEach brand of Onion Salt will vary in their level of saltiness. The one linked in the recipe has more of an onion flavor (along with parsley and garlic powder) with some sprinkles of salt. You should add .5 tbsp of onion salt at a time until you love the taste!
Prepare the Fathead Dough and divide it into 8 balls
Flatten each dough ball between two slices of parchment paper with your hand or use a rolling pin
Chop the shaved meat so that it's thinly sliced but also in bite-sized pieces
Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat
Add the butter, onions, and peppers to the pan. Saute the vegetables in a tbsp of butter until they are soft and "fried"
Add the shaved beef to the pan along with spices.
Use tongs to incorporate and cook the meat until all slices are browned
Turn off the heat and add the American Cheese to the top of the meat and vegetable mix. Cover the skillet with its lid or with a wide plate. The steam will cause the cheese to melt
After the cheese has melted (~3 minutes), mix the meat so that the cheese is fully incorporated
Divide the meat mixture evenly among the 8 balls. Leave room to fold the dough and seal each pocket
Seal the edges by pressing them down with a fork or by rolling the edges (see pictures above)
Heat a frying pan to medium heat with an oil
Fry the pockets on both sides for 2-3 minutes per side. You'll notice the dough get brown
Whisk the ingredients for the sauce with a fork. Top the pockets with the sauce before eating.
When I first shared this recipe, I fried them in a pan with oil, but there are two other ways to make this.
Shallow Fry in Oil: As I mentioned in the Low Carb Bang Bang Shrimp recipe, there are a few options for frying foods. I prefer to lightly or shallow pan fry my Keto Philly Cheesesteak pockets with olive oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil. It takes about two to three minutes per side. Be sure that you let your non-stick pan tell you when to flip (if it's stuck, then it's too early).
Air Fry: Some readers have shared that they air fried these on 375 until they were crisp.
Bake: You can also bake these on lined parchment paper for at 350 degrees until crisp. Flip at 5-minute intervals.
