10 servingsOne Comment I Liked:“We absolutely loved this meal. If you’re planning to serve this to a family of four, then I say double up the ingredients. But this was just fine for my family of 3. I used a 2qt casserole dish, used a can of green chilies instead of jalapeños, didn’t use the whole can of black beans, and seasoned my meat with Lawry’s & black pepper along with the cumin and garlic. I used Marie Calendar Honey Butter cornbread mix (but didn’t use all of the batter) which provided a nice contrast to the spicy meat mixture, and I added chives to my cornbread mix. Making this again real soon…”Note: Some said it came out a little soupy but got thicker as it stood. It’s suppose to be chili!

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SLOPPY JOES
Adapted from Rachael Ray
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1 softball-sized onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
Salt and ground black pepper
4 dinner rolls
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 cup provolone, shredded
In large skillet over medium-high heat add the oil and then brown the ground beef, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion and green pepper and cook another 3-4 minutes, until the vegetables start to get tender. Stir in the steak sauce and beef stock, season with salt and pepper, bring up to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes.
Split open rolls and remove most of the soft insides, leaving a bed to hold the meat mixture. Toast the rolls and set aside.
While the meat is cooking, melt the butter in a medium-size pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in milk, bring up to a bubble and let thicken, about 2 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in the cheese.
To serve, place a scoopful of the meat mixture onto the bottom of the rolls, then top with the cheese sauce and replace the top of the roll.
