So the other week I was supposed to make Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes, which are fantastic by the way! I don’t remember why, but I never did. I was looking on-line for some new recipes and came across this one for Bacon Cheeseburger Buns, and I thought it would be great to combine these two recipes! And I did last week.
Except to make it a little easier I thought about using the premade refrigerated pizza dough, you know the kind that comes in the tubes that pop when you open it. I got the idea from this recipe for Cheeseburger Flatbread Melts, which could be another version.
Philly Cheese Sloppy Joe Rolls
1 medium onion chopped
1 medium bell pepper seeded and chopped; any color or combination
1/4 cup steak sauce
1 cup beef broth
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup milk
1 cup provolone cheese shredded
11 oz thin crust pizza dough (or other refrigerated dough)
1 lb ground beef
Cook ground beef while breaking it up into chunks with a spatula or spoon until browned, over med-high heat. Add the bell pepper and onion and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the onions start to become tender. Drain an excess liquid. Stir in steak sauce and beef broth, season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook until the mixture is thickened and bubbly.
Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in milk and cook until the mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese until it is melted and incorporated into the sauce.
Roll dough into an 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle; cut into 6-8 squares. I actually used biscuits because that is what I had in the fridge.
Place 1/4 cup meat mixture in the center of each square add cheese sauce. Bring corners together in the center and pinch to seal.
Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with butter. Serve with extra cheese sauce spooned over and enjoy.
