Tonight, I tried my first recipe from Pinterest and it was a huge hit! Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes not only sound good but really are good – and easy to make!

This gives me hope and a little faith that more recipes I’ve pinned will turn out just as great. My only suggestions to the recipe below are to use a little less beef stock and don’t scoop out too much bread. The meat was very liquidy and the bread was too thin, even after toasting it, to hold the insides. Everything else was perfect and I will do exactly as it says the next time! Let me know if you make this as well, would love to hear your feedback.

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1 softball-sized onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
Salt and ground black pepper
4 dinner rolls

Cheese Sauce
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 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.

I made this tonight and it is delicious and so easy!! It is from Cooking Light’s 5 Ingredient recipe collection. This one will go in my list of favorites and easy to remember category.

I would like to say though, that I did not make their dressing. I wasn’t interested in making a homemade dressing that I may or may not like so my salad was not exactly their salad. I added cut-up avocado to the body of the salad and used buttermilk ranch as the dressing (not the healthiest but they wanted me to use buttermilk and avocado in the homemade dressing so, why not?). Even Conner loved it!

I am excited to find something I can make at the drop of the hat and in less than 10 minutes. Check it out for yourself here: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1895975
