So all my faithful readers….what do you think about the new design? Not only is my blog looking all sleek and sexy, but I also made the big jump from Blogger to WordPress…and for those who know about blogging platforms, that is a HUGE jump. It was terrifying and exciting all at the same time but now it is just a bit overwhelming. Wordpress offers so many awesome capabilities and I am having a hard time picking where to begin! I feel a bit like I am back in 2008 and first learning how to run the technical end of a blog.
I have so many great things coming soon so keep coming back for all the great new features of my blog 🙂 I am so EXCITED!
With so much of my time spent learning a whole new blogging platform (including many hours of online tutorials), my time in the kitchen has been quite limited. Dinners have needed to be especially quick and easy the past couple weeks. This sloppy joe recipe was the perfect fit for that necessity.
I have never liked sloppy joes. Just not a fan of the tomato based sauce. My mother in law has a great sloppy joe recipe that uses chicken gumbo soup as its base but the stores don’t stock that soup where I live. Bummer! This sloppy joe recipe uses beef broth and steak sauce as its base (yum!) and then you top it with that ooey gooey provolone cheese sauce to create a quick dinner heaven!Print
- 1 Tb vegetable oil
- 2 lbs lean ground beef
- salt and pepper
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 large green pepper, chopped
- 15 ounce can beef broth
- 1/2 C steak sauce
- 8 hamburger buns
- 1 Tb butter
- 1 Tb flour
- 12 ounces provolone cheese, shredded
- salt and pepper
- In a large skillet preheat to high add the oil, ground beef and salt and pepper. Brown the meat completely and then add the onion and green pepper. Cook for about 2 minutes, then add the can of beef broth and steak sauce. Stir well and allow the mixture to boil for about 10 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens.
- While the sauce reduces, melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle the flour into the melted butter and whisk it together. Allow the mixture to cook for about 1 minute and while whisking, add the milk. Bring it to a boil, whisking often, until it thickens. Add the cheese and the salt and pepper. Heat until the cheese melts and combines. Serve the cheese sauce over the meat inside the sandwich.
