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.
