Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes are a tasty alternative to the typical Sloppy Joes recipe that calls for tomato sauce. A delicious Sloppy Joes variation of an East Coast classic!
Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes
Today was a BIG DAY! The Solar Eclipse happened this morning, and people were buzzing about it all day! My Facebook feed was full of fun pictures of my friends in their eclipse glasses, pointing at the sky, and all sorts of images of the moon photobombing the sun!
Bryen and a bunch of his friends drove to Oregon to be right there in the thick of it. How fun! I was at home working, but had to go outside and experience the eclipse myself! It was interesting to feel the temperature drop from earlier this morning, and see the changes in the shadows from the trees. We didn't get totality here, but it was a good show!
Here is a photo I took of the eclipse shadows on the fence. The leaves in the trees acted like a pinhole lens and made these cool eclipses!
I cooked up these Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes for dinner tonight. They are one of those easy one-pan meals that the whole family loves. If you have ever enjoyed an actual Philly Cheese Steak, you might appreciate this take on that classic. Made with ground beef (or turkey) instead of rib eye, it cooks up just like a traditional Sloppy Joe. I like the cheese mixed in at the end, but you could put the cheese on top and let it melt that way if you wish. You could even broil it a minute or two.
Funny how this it TWO American classics sort of blended together! Does one of them eclipse the other? Oh gosh, I know. But I do love puns! 😀
