Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes


Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

I was recently talking on FB with a high school friend who told me she only uses her bread maker once or twice a year.  I gave her some ideas for making dough with spices for pizza crusts and rolls.  I told her I was even making part of our dinner as we chatted!  I had the bread maker making the dough I was going to use for the rolls with our Philly Cheeseteak Sloppy Joes.

I have a ton of ground beef in my freezer right now and am trying to use all I can.  I needed something that the kids would think was fun and delicious yet fairly easy to make.  I found this recipe on Pinterest for Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes from Jo and Sue.blogspot.ca.

I have no idea what real Philly Cheesesteaks are like but this sounded savory and I had most of the ingredients on hand.  Of course I had to do a bit of tweaking to fit what we had but I am not one to shy away from trying something different.

Verdict:

It was a hit.  Everyone at the table loved it and there was not a drop left at the end of the meal.  I did have some rolls leftover that the kids had for breakfast with butter and honey.

I served this with carrots and a side salad for dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 1/2  lb lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup A-1 Steak Sauce
  • 2 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup sharp Provolone cheese, shredded
  • 4 rolls split in half,  I used homemade but any sub or hamburger roll would work – recipe here

Directions:

  1. In a large fry pan over medium heat cook beef, pepper and onion.   Stir until well crumbled and cooked, about 8-10 minutes.  Drain fat from pan.
  2. While meat is cooking: melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook for about 1 minute, until thickened. Slowly whisk in milk and bring to a bubble.  Remove saucepan from heat and stir in cheese.
  3. Spoon meat mixture onto split bun. Top with cheese sauce.
