This Sloppy Joes recipe will take you back to those “melt in your mouth” childhood days when you didn’t stop eating until your stomach hurt.  Even my wife mentioned she felt like Igor in the Disney Classic, “Ratatouille”, when his eyes lit up like light bulbs as he proceeded to drop his pen to the floor after he took his first bite.  “It’s that good”, she said.  So without further ado or more bragging, I give you another I give you Sloppy Joes!

Also, if you’re interested in other sandwich or burger recipes, I highly recommend the following.  I think you’ll find the titles are, at least, quite intriguing.  Bison Burger, Turkey Burger Sliders, Double Ground Beef Burger & Cheese Burger Pot Pie.

Double Decker Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Double Grilled Cheese main pic 2

Now I know that most people know how to make a simple grilled cheese sandwich. But what about a Double Grilled Cheese or what I like to call a Double Decker Grilled Cheese? And did you know that experts say the proper way to make a great grilled cheese is with Mayonnaise? That’s right! So in this video we are grilling up a double decker with not 1, not 2 but 4 pieces of cheese, 3 pieces of Texas toast, Mayonnaise and a special seasoned butter blend I make myself.

Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

Philly Cheese Steak

Can You Say Philly Cheese Steak?

A Philly Cheese Steak ain’t no joke!  There are franchise’s back east that have been battling out the sandwich wars for decades.  And, if you’re a Steak and Cheese fan, then you know which restaurant you support.  I found a link that shows the top ten locations for authentic Philadelphia Cheese Steaks, and it talks a little bit about the history of each one as well.  Apparently the original sandwich started at a hot dog stand and Wikipedia talks all about it here, History of the Cheese Steak!

Philly Cheese Steak

Flat out, I don’t make it exactly the same way.  The original recipes use Cheese Wiz and I use Nacho Cheese, instead.  So, you’ll either love it or you won’t.  Both Cheese’s come from a can so basically, with my recipe, you’re getting the same thing, only with my sandwich, your getting a little kick too.  I find this to be much more satisfying because I like my Philly Cheese Steak a little on the spicy side.

Philly Cheese Steak Ingredients:

1 lb Sliced Beef
1 qt Water
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 can Nacho Cheese or Cheese Whiz
Sub Sandwich Rolls
1/2 Sliced onion
1 Chopped Garlic Clove
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive Oil for cooking

Combine the water and Baking soda and add the Sliced Beef.  Marinate for 20 minutes to tenderize.  Saute your Onions with olive oil and Garlic.  Strain the beef and cook thoroughly on medium high heat. Butter the Sub roll and toast on a flat skillet.  Then add the cooked Beef, Onions and Nacho Cheese to your toasted sub roll and enjoy your Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich!
