My most recent recipe swap selection came from my good friend Pam (Balancing Exercising with Healthy Eating). The theme was sandwiches, and she submitted Rachael Ray's Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes.
These were really easy and fast to make, perfect for a quick lunch or weeknight dinner. I served these on little finger rolls (hey, they were on sale) and I just loved the cheese sauce. I think I'll add some green pepper next time for a little extra flavor.
Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
adapted from Rachael Ray
- 1 tablespoon EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 softball-sized onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup steak sauce
- 1 cup chicken stock
- Salt and ground black pepper
- 4 dinner rolls (or 8 finger rolls), toasted if desired
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup desired cheese, shredded
In large skillet over medium-high heat with 1 turn of the pan of EVOO, brown the ground sirloin, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion and cook another 3-4 minutes, until the onions 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.
While the meat is cooking, melt the butter in a medium-size skillet 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 the cheese in a figure-eight motion until it is all incorporated.
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.
