Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

The other day the girls and I happened to tune into Rachel Ray’s talk show. We were able to see some neat animals, and then the cooking segment. In her cooking segment Rachel cooked Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes. I made a modified version, going from memory. This is the how I made them, which is very close to her version.

You will need:

2 lbs ground meat (I used very lean turkey)

1 onion, chopped



2 Tbs. Better Than Bullion*

2 cups water*

Steak Sauce

4 Tbsp. butter

4 Tbsp. flour

2 cups milk

8 oz Provolone cheese

hamburger buns

*You may use 2 cups of beef broth for these two ingredients*

Brown ground meat with onions, and drain any fat. Sprinkle ground meat mixture with a little salt and a few grinds of pepper.

Warm the water and with Better Than Bullion and mix well, and add it to the meat mixture.

Pour on steak sauce, adding a little at a time until it smells right. I used maybe 1/4 of a large bottle. Allow the meat mixture to simmer, uncovered, so that the liquid will evaporate.

While the meat is simmering you can make your cheese sauce. Melt your butter over med. heat; once it has melted add your flour. This will make a roux, which you only want to cook for a couple of minutes. Add your milk and mix.

Once you milk begins to bubble add your cheese. I could only find sliced provolone, so I stacked the slices and sliced them into strips, cutting them again to make them smaller and easier to melt.

Continue stirring until you cheese melts.

Put meat mixture on bun and top with cheese sauce… then enjoy! From this recipe you will get at least 12 sandwiches on the smaller buns.
