Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

August 22, 2019 in Food, Recipe, Recipes - No Comments

I absolutely love a good Philly. Whether it’s Philly Cheesesteak fries (the best ones I’ve found are at a little deli here in town), or the classic sandwich on a big hoagie roll, I can always be in the mood for one. It’s the perfect food… from the deliciously seasoned meat, the sauteed peppers and onions, and the gooey melty cheese. I decided to mix things up and make a Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe, and then I stuffed a huge baked sweet potato with some of the mixture. The result was a really simple but flavorful dinner than my entire family enjoyed. I think yours will too!

Ingredients:

  • 2 TBSP Unsalted Butter
  • 1 lb Ground Beef (or meat of choice)
  • 1 Whole Yellow Onion, diced
  • 1-2 Green Bell Peppers, diced
  • 1/2 C Beef Broth
  • 3-4 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2-3 TBSP Cornstarch
  • Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, to taste
  • 4-5 Large Sweet Potatoes (one for each member of your family, so adjust as needed)
  • 8-10 Slices Provolone (Less if you want it less gooey)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425
  2. Scrub your sweet potatoes clean, and pat dry.
  3. Spray or Rub them with a little bit of cooking oil, poke a few holes into them with a fork, and salt, then wrap tightly in foil.
  4. Bake your sweet potatoes at 425 for 50-60 minutes depending on size. They’re done when you’re able to easily pierce them with a fork.
  5. Brown your ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink, removed from skillet and set aside.
  6. Add butter to pan. Once it’s melted, add in your diced vegetables and saute them for 6-7 minutes or until the onions are translucent and the peppers are nearly cooked through with a little crunch left. (This would be a good time to also add your mushrooms should you want to add those).
  7. Reduce your heat to low and return ground beef to the skillet, add all of your seasonings to taste and then add your Worcestershire sauce and beef broth. Combine well.
  8. Then, add your corn starch and stir until it’s dissolved. The corn starch will thicken the beef broth up a little bit to create a really yummy sauce. If your beef looks too dry, you can add 1-2 tbsp more of beef broth (or water). Scrape the bottom of your pan during this process to combine all ingredients thoroughly.
  9. Keeping heat on low, cover your mixture with the provolone slices. I like to use enough to completely cover the mixture and the skillet, but you can use less to lighten it up. Cover for a few minutes until the cheese gets gooey and melts into the mixture.
  10. Once your potatoes are finished, slice them open and scoop some mixture into it. Serve hot!

You can also use this mixture on top of buttered buns or hoagie rolls!

  • Another fun Sunday afternoon at Board and Brush Nashville. I had so been looking forward to this day with two of my closest friends. It was such a good time catching up with them and working on these projects that I didn’t really care to take the “perfect” pictures. I just snapped a few and enjoyed my day with them. 
How was your weekend?
  • This one goes out to all the haters who tag me in memes about my overuse of garlic. 👀

  • A Peek into Our Saturday Afternoon and Family Day at my husband’s job.⠀
⠀
This is a yearly event that they put on for all of the families and it’s amazing! Lots of rides, prizes, food, and fun treats. We had a blast. ⠀
⠀
I may have went overboard with the free burgers today. I’m a sucker for a really good burger off the grill. Anyone else? ⠀
⠀
Full Disclosure: My Ennegram 6 came out hard when Grayson wanted to ride the Ferris Wheel.⠀
⠀
I was almost hoping that 1. We could talk him out of it, or 2. My husband would be too tall to ride it with him. I was so nervous about how he would react. ⠀
What if he tried to get down?⠀
What if he was so scared and I wasn’t up there with him?⠀
⠀
But, I learned a lesson today. ⠀
I have to learn to trust my boy. He *knew* he wanted to ride it, and he loved it! ⠀
Slowly loosening my reigns on him. Reluctantly... 🤣🤣⠀

  • Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. I didn’t always openly share about my struggles over the years with my own mental health. I always steered the conversation towards how important it was for anyone struggling to reach out, ask for help, share their story, whatever they felt comfortable doing. Ending the Stigma.⠀
⠀
But me? Oh no, I was to embarrassed to admit that I was also struggling. ⠀
⠀
I never really noticed a change in my mental health until *after* I became a mother. Post-Partum (and situational—my husband and I were just in a bad place financially, in our marriage, etc) Depression really got the best of me after I gave birth to my son. I slept all the time, picked stupid fights with my husband, and at times just genuinely didn’t want to be alive. Thought that I was a horrible mother. Thankfully after struggling for what felt like forever, those feelings went away. ⠀
⠀
Going into my second pregnancy and remembering just how badly that PPD had gotten, spiraled me into a new feeling—anxiety. And that feeling hasn’t really gone away. ⠀
⠀
I have really really great days, more good than bad and I am so grateful for that. But there are days where I feel my overwhelm and anxiety physically crushing me. Being able to speak up about it, communicate my needs to my partner, *and* find support and solace in wonderful women who are going through the same has been my saving grace. ⠀
⠀
Sure, Instagram is often filled with really beautiful curated images—and don’t mistake my words here, I love and enjoy scrolling these beautiful feeds; but it’s also important to remember that it isn’t always beautiful and well planned all of the time. There are real people behind these beautiful photos. ⠀
⠀
Life can also be messy. Embrace the mess. ⠀
⠀
(Inspiration for this post today comes from two beautiful Moms that I follow and love, who consistently advocate for Mental Health Awareness- @thegarciadiaries and @arynhinton). ⠀
⠀
Scroll all the way through for a silly outtake of the first image. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Oh, Sawyer. Lol. ⠀

  • Do you have a house full of snackers? #AD Whether you have a toddler or a preschooler @beechnutfoods Toddler Snacks (their Fruity Oat Bars specifically) are some of our favorite Grab N Go snacks! They contain only 5 *REAL* Ingredients and no artificial preservatives (Whole Grain Oats, Raisins, Dates, Sunflower Oil, and Dried Strawberries or Bananas—depending on which you get). The kids absolutely love them, and I feel pretty great giving them these whenever they ask for one. 
I also love sneaking Beech-Nut​®​ Naturals purees into their food to make sure they’re getting enough servings of veggies a day too. 
What are your kid’s favorite snacks? •
