A couple of months ago I came across a recipe for a twist on the regular Sloppy Joe, make it a Philly Cheesesteak. Seriously?! How awesome is that, we love Philly Cheesesteaks, but are kids are not a fan. Well they sure did fall in love with these, so did the hubby and myself. It's not the same as an actual Philly Cheesesteak, but it did help with the cravings of wanting one.
I almost completely forgot about this recipe until I was looking in my food folder and saw it just sitting there waiting to be posted and shared with our lovely readers. So here it is, enjoy!
Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
Source: Adapted from A Taste of Home Cooking
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1 softball-sized onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
Salt and ground black pepper
4 dinner rolls
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 cup provolone, shredded
In large skillet over medium-high heat add the oil and then brown the ground beef, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion and green pepper and cook another 3-4 minutes, until the vegetables start to get tender. Stir in the steak sauce and beef stock, season with salt and pepper, bring up to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes.
Split open rolls and remove most of the soft insides, leaving a bed to hold the meat mixture. Toast the rolls and set aside.
While the meat is cooking, melt the butter in a medium-size pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in milk, bring up to a bubble and let thicken, about 2 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in the cheese.
To serve, place a scoopful of the meat mixture onto the bottom of the rolls, then top with the cheese sauce and replace the top of the roll.
