I hate Sloppy Joes. A lot. On a scale of one to chitterlings, they're a nine. I think because I'm not a ketchup person and traditional Sloppy Joes pack a lot of twangy ketchup flavor. Or maybe I'm just weird.
But the onions love them. And they're cheap. Sloppy Joes are cheap, not the onions - the onions are very expensive. To change things up I usually just use pizza sauce, add the pizza toppings I like (black olives and mushrooms), top them with with mozzarella and call them Pizza Joes (you're welcome).
Tonight, though, I had a hankering for cheesesteak and thought, meh, why not? They were really pretty awesome! Husband said they tasted just like the cheesesteaks at the mall. I'm not sure if that was a compliment or not, though.
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 medium onion, chopped
6 large hamburger buns
6 slices provolone cheese
6 tablespoons mayo
Cook ground beef and green peppers over medium-high/high heat (that place on the dial between medium-high and high) for 4-5 minutes or until about half the pink is gone. Drain the meat mixture well and add back to pan. Add salt, pepper, garlic and onions and continue cooking until peppers are tender and meat is cooked through. Set aside.
Broil buns, split-side up, until toasted. Spoon cheesesteak mixture evenly onto bottom buns. Place cheese slices on top and broil until cheese is melted. Spread mayo onto top buns and place one onto each sandwich.
