Philly Cheese Steak Soup

My first recipe for What the Forks for Dinner? was French Onion Soup. Philly Cheese Steak Soup is a take from that first recipe.

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SOUP 1When I posted that first recipe, I was in seventh heaven. It was the start of a dual dream for Tim and I. My love of cooking, his love of photography, and wanting to share those loves with each other and with others.

Almost four years later, we are still loving the process of sharing our loves with each other, and you. We look back and see how far we have come. 335 recipes, not including this one, and growing from just a few page views a day, to now averaging over 600 page views a day. We have even had a few days over 1000!! Continue reading “Philly Cheese Steak Soup”

Don’t get me wrong, I love turkey, but after a few days of anything left over…..I am done! I want something the polar opposite of what ever that left over was.Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s are just that!

For some crazy reason I have been craving a Sloppy Joe. I haven’t had one in years. We used to have them all the time when I was a kid.

I seem to remember a recipe that called for a can of soup, but for the life of me I can’t remember what the soup was, but it was one of those recipes that women passed around until everyone had it.

You know on the recipe cards that all women……of a certain age will remember…..from the kitchen of……..’sigh’ but that was before the digital revolution!

As you who are familiar with my blog know, Tim likes things spicy and he thinks Sriracha is ketchup. Well ketchup goes in Sloppy Joe’s …so why not srirachia?

The recipe is a basic Sloppy Joe recipe with ketchup, onion, green pepper, and brown sugar.

I added a touch of sriracha, a little soy and teriyaki, garlic, and rice wine vinegar. The combo was awesome!!!

A little spicy, a little sweet , and a little asian.Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s.

Normally a nice bun is what you want, but I wanted to grill mine and needed a bread to withstand the grilling pressure…..enter the ciabatta loaf. Ok, so it seems to be my bread of choice for a lot of sandwiches.

But it’s perfect to grill and toast. Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I sliced the loaf in half lengthwise, then cut it into four sandwiches. I scopped out a little of the inside of the bottom halves to make a little well for the Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s mix.

Back in the day a slice of single wrapped cheese would have went on top, but I picked cheddar for more flavor. Besides, I am not sure those wrapped slices are real cheese????

Once assembled I grilled those babies up………Tim and I both thought they were the best Sloppy Joe’s we had ever tasted.

So now that you are over the turkey, try the Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s !!

Philly Cheesesteak Flatbread

Ahhh………….the Philly Cheesesteak…….it’s iconic. I know there are many versions out there. I recently saw a picture of a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich and it looked sooooo yummy. But it’s a lot of bread, so why not reduced the amount of bread? Make it flat…….oh yeah…..flatbread…….Philly Cheesesteak Flatbread!

This could not be easier. I used Naan bread on the  Middle Eastern Chicken Couscous Wrap and loved the taste of the Naan. So, why not top it with the Philly Cheesesteak ingredients, pop it in the oven and………..well, all I can say is yum, yum , yum!!!!

I topped the Naan with a pre-packaged ready to go steak ( you can use left over if you like and or have), sprinkled on garlic, and a little oregano, drizzled on steak sauce ( your choice), top with green pepper, onion, and provolone cheese. In the oven for a few  minutes and ta da……….Philly Cheesesteak Flatbread.

Tim and I both loved it. It can be made for a quick lunch or dinner, or for a late night snack………that you can eat on your new TV trays, while watching a movie or your favorite TV show. We got new TV trays after much searching……..thank you to our friend Carol for pointing us in the right direction for our purchase. Apparently TV tray are not so popular anymore…..lol.

Whether you have TV trays or not try the Philly Cheesesteak Flatbread….but try the TV trays.
