Philly CheeseSteak Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are an American Classic meal, especially when you’re on a tight budget. I found this recipe a few months ago and thought to myself, “I love Sloppy Joes and I love Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches, so what the heck, I’ll give it a try!” And boy was I happy I did! This recipe comes from the Nothing But Country blog, however, you will see a TON of variations across the internet and on Pinterest. So feel free to use your imagination! This is the one I enjoyed the most. Hope you like it too…oh, and just like with regular Sloppy Joes, these are on the “sloppy” side too, so remember to be fully stocked on napkins! ;)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1.5 pounds ground beef
2 small or 1 large onions chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 package of fresh mushrooms (already sliced)
1/4 cup steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
Salt and ground black pepper
8 hamburger buns
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 cup provolone, shredded or sliced, your preference
diced green onions if desired
In large skillet over medium-high heat add the oil and then brown the ground beef, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion, mushroom 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.
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 buns, then top with the cheese sauce, sprinkle some diced green onions on top (if desired) and replace the top of the bun. Now get those napkins ready and dig in!
