Philly-Style Sloppy Joes

If a Philadelphia cheese steak and a sloppy joe made a baby, it would be this sandwich.   So.Much.YUM

I’ll likely be vilified for calling it Philly style, as there are green peppers in it, but eh – I like green peppers. It’s also why I called it “Philly Style” and not  THE TRUE ORIGINAL PHILLADELPHIA CHEESE STEAK.  Are there sloppy joe purists too? I don’t know if there is a sloppy joe rule book….

It’s quick to put together, easy, and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. Most importantly, 4 out of 4 on the approval rating. Even Buddy ate this happily. I thought it was a goner when he noticed the peppers, but he just picked them out and kept eating. Definitely a win.

Philly-Style Sloppy Joes

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cube beef bouillon OR 1 cup beef broth
1 cup water (omit if using broth)
1/4 cup steak sauce
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
pepper to taste

Brown ground beef, drain. Pretty straight forward here. I sometimes like to use my potato masher when browning beef. I feel like it breaks it up a little better and gives it a nicer texture when using ground meat for sandwiches. Don’t attack it, be gentle. We aren’t looking for pate.

Dice onion and green pepper, mince your garlic if using whole garlic cloves.
Add it to the cooked ground beef.
Cook over medium heat until peppers and onions are tender.

IMGP1200Dissolve bouillon cube in hot water.
Put water, Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce, and liquid smoke into meat mixture.

Simmer for 5-10 minutes
Serve on rolls. You could make a cheese sauce if you wanted. I was in a time crunch and used a jarred sauce.  You could go without cheese too. Doesn’t matter, whatever you want.

See that yummy roll? I’ll be posting the recipe for that soon! (Find it here! Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls)  Let me know in the comments if you tried this and what you think!
