Who didn’t love sloppy joes as a kid? I think I probably begged my mom to make them on a weekly basis. The messy sandwiches are still a great dinner here and there, but sometimes you want a change. Well folks, this is that change you have been looking for. Seriously, the first time I had these, I was in love. I think you will be, too.
Philly Joes (aka Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes)
- 1 pound of ground beef
- Hoagie rolls, or bread of choice
- 1 cup of beef stock
- 1/2 cup of steak sauce
- 1/2 medium onion, sliced
- 1/2 green pepper (optional, I didn’t have one on hand)
- Salt & Pepper
- 2 tbsp butter or margarine
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 cup of milk (may find that you need more as you go)
- 2 cups of your choice of shredded white cheese, I used Monterrey Jack
- Start by tossing your onions and green peppers in a pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes.
- Add in the ground beef and cook until browned thoroughly.
- Drain grease and put beef back into pan.
- Add beef stock, salt and pepper, and steak sauce. You can add more if the mix isn’t “Sloppy” enough for you.
- Let simmer while you make the cheese sauce.
- In a separate sauce pan, melt butter completely.
- Whisk in flour and stir until mixed.
- Pour in milk, continue to whisk until bubbling.
- Add cheese and mix until melted. You may find that you need more milk, add little by little until you have a good creamy consistency.
- Serve the meat on toasted rolls, top with desired amount of cheese sauce and enjoy!
