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

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.

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

Classic Monkey Bread

For a few years I made monkey bread muffins for Christmas morning, and for some reason I got out of that habit. Then we had kids and I thought I'd get back in to it, but I didn't until recently. But I recently made classic loaf Monkey Bread and realized that it's just better than muffins. It's not like a loaf is any less "complicated" to make, or really tastes different, but there is something easier about it. And I haven't had a single loaf bubble over and cause a mess in my oven! I'm so happy to have brought this back in to our lives. Not that it takes long to put together or bake, but this is the perfect lazy weekend (or Christmas morning) breakfast. I have even started the process in advance before, by cutting the biscuits and measuring the sugar and cinnamon in a bag the night before. After all, the biscuit cutting is the most time consuming part. Wake, assemble, and voila! Do you have a big crowd to feed, or kids that devour sweets? Simply

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
