Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

One day till we leave for Key West! I am sooooo excited for a vacation! My sister and my nephew came for dinner tonight, and I needed to find a great recipe that was both kid and adult friendly. I came across this recipe on Sarah's blog A Taste of Home Cooking and I knew it was perfect. Sarah also runs our bi-weekly recipe swap (potato recipe swap coming soon!). These sandwiches were delicious! My 3 year old nephew kept saying "more cheesy burger, more cheesy burger".  Success. This dish is really easy to put together and is very low cost. The flavors are rich and cheese sauce is very tasty! This would be another great dish to add to your Super Bowl menu! I have a few posts scheduled for next week, but will mainly be relaxing with my family. Catch ya on the flip side everyone!

1 1/4 pound lean ground beef
1 softball-sized onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
Salt and ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour (we used gluten free)
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
