I both love and hate technology! My beloved Macbook died and we had to go and get a new computer, which I love! So I have been a little behind on my blogging. But this meal is just the meal to come back with! My sister brought this to my attention and helped me prepare it. She found it on Pinterest.
If you like Philly Cheesesteak then I think you will like this childhood twist on a classic. Its flavors are all there, just carried through ground beef, diced veggies and a delicious cheese sauce. Typically a cheesesteak is served with french fries as a side. We decided to go with a twist and sliced up some red potatoes and roasted them to give them a crisp almost french fry like texture. We followed our dinner up with a yummy chocolate dip that we used with delicious fresh fruit. The fruit makes the chocolate healthier right?! It is so very good and very simple.
If you would like to try this Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe and all the fixings…
Here’s what you need…
1 lb of ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons steak sauce
salt and pepper
1 cup shredded provolone cheese
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
4 toasted sub rolls, whole wheat
1 package chocolate chips
sliced granny smith apples
Here’s what you do…
For the sloppy joe’s:
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and brown the ground beef about 5 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the onion and green pepper and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, until the veggies start to get tender. Stir in the steak sauce and beef stock. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring up to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes.
Take sub rolls, split open and remove most of the soft insides, leaving a bed for the meat mixture. Toast and set aside.
While the meat is cooking, melt the butter in a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in milk and bring to a bubble. Let thicken. Turn off the heat and stir in the cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.
To serve, place a spoonful of meat into the well of the sub roll and top with the cheese sauce.
For the potatoes:
Slice the red potatoes into rounds, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 425 degrees for about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
For the dessert:
Take the bag of chocolate chips and add a splash of milk (roughly a tablespoon) and microwave for thirty seconds. Stir, add more milk if necessary. You are looking for a smooth and glossy texture. Microwave for another 30 seconds or until completely melted. Serve with fresh fruits.
This was a great weekend meal that all of us enjoyed. Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine.
