Philly cheesesteak sloppy joes

Yum. Super (and I mean SUPER) easy, but mainly....yum. I was fork eating the cold meat mixture before bed the night I made this. If you say you've never done that, I don't believe you. Remember when Main Man said he didn't like sloppy joes when I made the sloppy joe casserole?? Someone was singing a different tune after this meal...

1 T olive oil (I omitted this)
1 lb ground beef (you could use turkey but I used the lean 97/3 ground beef)
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 T steak sauce
1 cup beef stock
4 dinner rolls
salt and ground black pepper
1 cup shredded provolone

In large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil if you're using it and brown the ground beef, about 5-6 minutes. Add the onion and green pepper, and cook another 4-5 minutes, until the veggies start to get tender. Stir in the steak sauce and the beef stock, season with salt and pepper, bring to a bubble and cook about 2 minutes.

Split open rolls and remove most of the soft insides, leaving a bed of love to hold the meat mixture. Toast the rolls and put a large spoonfull of the meat mixture with all it's juicy glory onto your roll. Top with cheese and serve. I served it open face due to my carb cutting goal I've been talking about...and I had rolls the size of mini frisbees! Main man's seal of approval is stamped on this recipe as well, so I'm going to officially put it in the favorites tab to join our rotation of repeats. Repeats don't happen often in our household because there's always something new I want to try, but there are some easy, fantabulous recipes that tend to get remade over and over...I believe this will be one of them!
