Sloppy Joe With A Twist

Since we always have ground beef in the freezer, at least once a week I cook a meal using it. Sometimes more than once. And one of the things that always comes to mind when I am looking for my weekly hamburger recipe is sloppy joes...duh! 

We love a good sloppy joe, and I have found some unique ways to serve them. My Sloppy Potatoes and Mexican Sloppy Joes to just name a couple. And now we have another oh so yummy way to get our sloppy on.

A good Philly Cheese Steak isn't the easiest thing to come by here in Northern Indiana, but it remains one of our favorite sandwiches of all time, and inspired this mama to find a way to get those flavors in a whole new way!

Yep, we're taking the tasty stuff from a dripping good cheese steak, and putting them into a ground meat mixture instead.

These come together in almost no time, so perfect for the hustle and bustle of this time of year! 

Don't be afraid to take a classic loved dish and switch it up just a little bit. You never know what new favorite you'll find!

Philly Sloppy Joes
1 lb. ground beef
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 (4oz.) jar sliced mushrooms, chopped
2 TBS butter
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 tsp. steak seasoning
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
2 TBS ketchup
1 c. beef broth
1 TBS cornstarch
Salt and Pepper
Hamburger Buns, toasted
Provolone cheese

In a small bowl combine beef broth and cornstarch. Whisk until combined. Set aside. In a large skillet brown beef until no longer pink. Season with salt, pepper and steak seasoning. Remove from skillet. Melt butter. Saute' onions, peppers and mushrooms until soft, about 5-7 minutes. Add beef back to skillet with Worcestershire and ketchup. Stir well. Increase heat to high. Add beef broth mixture and stir constantly until slightly thickened. Assemble sandwiches, leaving tops off. Place in warm oven for a few minutes to melt cheese.
