Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes


I really think sloppy joes might be one of Rob's favorite quick dinners. I like them too, but sometimes I just wish I could change them up a bit. Enter these Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes. I have literally had these pinned for over 2 years, and like many things I pin, I took my dear sweet time trying them. It's not like I didn't want to, and it's not like I never thought about them, but when I decided to do sloppy joes for dinner, I just stuck with my regulars.

Occasionally I join in on a Recipe Swap on a cooking board I'm on, and when I was assigned A Taste of Home Cooking, I pretty much immediately said "Yes, now I have zero excuse to ignore the Philly Sloppy Joes". I regret not making these sooner; you know, like 2 years ago when I first saw them! And remember when I said that I stick to my regular sloppy joes?  Well, these may be my new regular!  I personally liked these a lot more than "normal", and they were easier!  Almost as easy as opening a can!

Next time I make them I'd love to try them with the cheese sauce, but this time I wasn't thinking!


Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
Ingredients:1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 softball-sized onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped (optional - I omitted)
1 lb. ground beef
2 Tablespoons steak sauce
1/2 cup beef stock
Salt and Pepper
4 rolls or buns (toasted)
Cheese sauce (Below), sliced Provolone or Cheez Wiz

Directions:
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil.  Add the onion and green peppers if using, and cook until soft and starting to brown.

Add the ground beef and cook about 5-6 minutes, draining off the fat when finished.

Stir in the steak sauce and beef stock.  Season with salt & pepper, bring to a boil and cook about 2 minutes.

To serve -  place a scoopful of the meat onto the bottom of the rolls or buns.  Top with cheese and/or whatever condiments you prefer, and top of bun.


Cheese SauceIngredients:
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon flour
1 cup of milk
1 cup of provolone, shredded

Directions:
Melt the butter in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in the milk, bring to a boil and let thicken for about 2 minutes.  Turn off heat and stir in cheese.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Exclusive Pumping - why I did it twice, and some tips & tricks

This is a story I've been wanting to share for several years, in fact one of the reasons I decided to make the switch to more of a life blog versus a food blog. So bear with me here!

I have two children. I tried breastfeeding both of them, and was unsuccessful with both, for different reasons. One wouldn't latch. One my supply was too fast and plentiful. I tried a few things because I really really wanted to breastfeed, but it was stressing me out, so I looked in to other options, which is where I learned about exclusive pumping. 

 What is exclusive pumping (or EP)? It's when a mother expresses her milk to feed her child, rather than feeding "straight from the source". Prior to having Tyler, I knew very little about pumping, but I knew that since I planned to breastfeed and planned to work after maternity leave, I would need a pump. But that was about it. I remember the weekend before he was born sitting on my bed playing with the pump and thinking the manual was…

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.
