Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes, tj’s garlic fries, cole slaw

14 Aug

its been raining since last night – and these looked good so i have them a try!  i only had Gruyere on hand – next time it’ll definitely be provolone.  i used peter luger steak sauce which is delicious!  next time i’ll decrease the chicken stock to 1/3 cup – i had to thicken the meat sauce up with some corn starch!  i served with trader joes garlic fries and some cole slaw!



Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

adapted from rachael ray


  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 softball-sized onion, chopped
  • 1 cup steak sauce
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 4 rolls
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheese, shredded



In large skillet over medium-high heat with 1 turn of the pan of EVOO, brown the ground turkey, 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 chicken stock, season with salt and pepper, bring up to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes.

Split open rolls and toast.

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.
