Recipe Thursday: Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

Good Morning Everyone!

Well, I decided that this time I would try a recipe before I posted it. I still want to try last week's Buffalo Chili Chicken Mac; but haven't had a chance yet. I made this week's recipe last night and it was quite good and super simple. I had it again today for lunch and this time put some balsamic mayonnaise with it and that was great. Today's recipe is again, from my new "Big Orange Rachael Ray" Book.


4Tbsps EVOOO
1lb ground sirloin
1/2-1 onion chopped
1/4 cup steak sauce such as A1
3/4-1 cup beef stock
2Tbsps butter
1 cup milk
2Tbsps flour
1 cup shredded provolone cheese (I used the Italian blend)


Brown the meat and then add the chopped onion, season with salt and pepper and cook until the onions are tender.
Add the beef broth and the steak sauce and bring the mixture up to a boil and then lower and simmer until ready to assemble "the joes"
While the meat mixture is simmering, melt the butter in small skillet or pot over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook for a couple of minutes, making sure to whisk it so that the flour dissolves smoothly.
Add the milk slowly and then bring up to a bubble, (keep a close eye on it and stir) lower the heat, then add the cheese stirring in a figure eight motion.
Assemble the sandwiches by slathering the buns with balsamic mayo and piling some meat mixture on and then spoon the cheese sauce on top.

Balsamic Mayo
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
3Tbsps Balsamic Vinegar
Black pepper,

Whisk the mayo and vinegar together and then add the black pepper. Cover and keep in refrigerator.
