Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

This is a true man’s meal.  Don’t get me wrong I really actually loved it,  but if you want to please your man you must whip him up this meal.  It really does taste exactly like a Philly Cheesesteak.  The flavors were great together.  The cheese sauce was the creamiest, tastiest addition.  I wanted to eat spoonfuls of it.  It was pure decadence layered over the beef.  I would say this took 30 minutes start to finish to make, a totally easy week night dinner.   I will be making this again and again!


Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

(Adapated from Taste of Home

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound ground beef

1 softball-sized onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

2 tablespoons steak sauce, such as A-1

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.

    My husband will love these! I have a really good sloppy joe recipe that seems a bit similar and we both love it, as well as a beef stroganoff I just pinned and tried and it's relish….of course, none of these are low-cal!!

    So I made these like a month or so ago and my came out runny… any insight to what gives? They were still delicious but the meat was runny so they were extra sloppy I guess!
