Philly Cheesesteak "Sloppy Joe's"

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Ah yeah, another weird sounding recipe right?  I know, how can you turn a Philly Cheesesteak into a sloppy joe?  Well, Rachel Ray did just that.  Weird huh, she is always changing things up.  Luckily, this recipe is different than most of hers because it doesn't have a billion ingredients.  It was super easy and came together really fast! 

Super bowl party sandwich anyone?  

Musical Selection: Telluride by Josh Gracin.  Not sure why but this song keeps coming up on my Pandora station.  I guess it was just begging to come on the blog. 
Start by browning some ground beef with a medium sized onion.
Once the meat is almost cooked through, add a diced up green pepper. Let this cook for about 2-3 minutes.
While the meat and veggies are cooking, work on the cheese sauce.  Yes, cheese sauce.  Start by melting butter in a sauce pan.
Okay, back to the meat.  Once the meat is cooked through, I let it sit just a bit to get all browned and delicious.  See those crispy brown pieces.  Yep, thats what you want.
Add some beef broth...
And steak sauce.  Gross, look at that goopy bottle.  Sorry.
Add about a tablespoon of flour to the melted butter.
Whisk it and let it cook through for about 2 minutes to get the pasty taste out of it.
Add the milk. Whisk together so there is no lumps and let it come to a slight bubble.
Ha, back to the meat--I decided to add a little bit of Worcestershire sauce for additional flavor.
I also modified the recipe just a bit.  I didn't want the meat mixture to be too runny so I made a slurry of water and corn starch to thicken it.
Poured it into the pan.  Don't mind my corn starch covered thumb.
Back to the cheese sauce.  Duh, it needs cheese! I used a mozzarella and provolone blend.
Dump about a cup into the sauce pan.
Give it a good whisk until it comes together.  Ooooh baby, cheese sauce.
The finished product.
That's what I'm talking about.
Cheesy meaty goodness. 

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
A few shakes of Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon corn starch
1/2 cup cold water4 hamburger buns 
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 cup provolone, shredded
For the Meat:
In large skillet over medium-high heat brown the ground beef with the onion. After the meat is almost cooked through, add green pepper and cook another 2-3 minutes.   Stir in the beef stock, steak sauce and Worcestershire sauce.   Bring to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes.  Stir together the cornstarch and cold water so there is no lumps.  While stirring, pour in the slurry (corn starch and water) until you have reached your desired thickness.   

For the Cheese Sauce While the meat is cooking, melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook for about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk, bring up to a bubble and let thicken for about 2 minutes. Turn off heat and stir the cheese. 

To serve, place a scoop of the meat mixture onto the bottom of the rolls, top with the cheese sauce and replace the top of the roll.
