As always, I started with a container of precooked ground beef from the freezer, thus eliminating step 1.
I also added slightly more than 1/4 cup steak sauce, to help it hold together a little better.
I usually use red sweet peppers instead of green.
And I didn’t have any mushrooms this time.
But other than that, I followed the recipe exactly! Ha!
So… they are probably not of the true Philly Cheesesteak tradition, but they tasted delicious :)
PHILLY CHEESESTEAK SLOPPY JOES
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1/4-1/2 cup steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
1 green pepper, chopped or julienned
1 package sliced mushrooms
1/2-1 teaspoon salt - to taste
1/4/ teaspoon pepper
Provolone cheese slices
1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Add the onion, green pepper and mushrooms, Cook and stir for another 3-4 minutes. The vegetables will start to get tender.
3. Stir in the steak sauce, beef stock, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook about 2 minutes more. Add additional steak sauce if it seems too “soupy.”
4. Scoop hot sloppy Joe mixture onto hamburger buns and top with a slice of provolone cheese.
