Ok so, last night I was shown a blog  www.lifewithmel.com)  in which she had made her version of the philly cheesesteak using ground chuck. (Looks Good lets give it a whirl) but since I am a guy and reading directions and I dont play well together I didn’t exactly make them as planned. (imagine that) I cut up the peppers and onions and set them aside like I was told but didn’t read further…well let’s say I was cooking them after the meat was done and well I put the garlic in the meat…oh well  thats all right they turned out really good maybe a hair to spicy for the wife but still good, and if your looking at the picture you will notice I didn’t use hoagie rolls, all I had available was mini slider buns, but they worked out really well.

Philly Sliders – Cooking with Mel (Life with Mel)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • onion, sliced thin
  • 1 green pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced thin [seeds removed if you prefer]
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 or 2 cups shredded cheese, your preference
  • Sub rolls
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a medium skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Add a few spices here to flavor the meat while cooking
  3. Drain the meat and set aside
  4. Slice the onion, pepper, and jalapeno and set aside
  5. Press the garlic cloves and add to the pile of sliced onions, peppers, & jalapenos
  6. In a medium bowl, pour in the meat and add ¾ of the cheese, all of the spices & incorporate fully
  7. In another skillet, add some oil and heat over medium heat. Add the onions, peppers, jalapeño’s and garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent and the peppers and jalapeno are cooked thoroughly.
  8. Sprinkle some pepper while sautéing
  9. Stuff your sub roll with as much meat and cheese mixture as you like!
  10. Top it with the sautéed peppers and onions
  11. You can even bake them in the oven, which is what we did. Top the subs with cheese and bake for 6 or 8 minutes or until the cheese is nice and bubbly!


I would like to thank everyone on here who is  following my wife and helping her along the way and extra special thanks to Nelly who has the blog (www.cookingwithbooks.blogspot.com) @nella22. for being there for her not just in food….  I really need to learn the lingo of who you all are between girafeandahaf, coffeelovinmom,  squirellinazoo, catinthehat and thing one and thing two I am so confused and since its #*@!  Freakin Friday  or whatever it is you Twitter people say…I wish the best to all of you.  (ok so  girafeandahalf is Katie & coffeelovinmom is Amy, I have no idea if the others are even code names but it sounded funny and if it’s your name no disrespect intended)

Stayed tuned for hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, just kidding I can cook I just never get to, the little chief rules…. (However The Wife informed me I should do this once a week…ha…we will see…might be the only way I get to cook besides on the grill so I am considering it)   Happy Weekend…feel free to freakin friday me…oh wait…I don’t have twitter or facebook for that matter….just follow the wife!

  1. My husband is the same with directions, he always ends up with a few extra screws that were probably supposed to go somewhere….and there should be a twitter lingo handbook for real!

    • Dont be to rough on him sometimes they do send extra parts, at least thats what i keep telling myself! LOL and as far as twitter goes, I personally dont have a twitter account and still have to have help on the texting lingo thats out there so everytime she says blah blah blah my tweets i cant help but laugh. (thanks for commenting)

  2. Not sure if my first comment will post, so trying using another e-mail. Sorry if this is a repeat!

    Great job, Hubby! I’m thrilled when my better half remembers to season the burgers before he grills!

    • LOL, That when you just say this time i’m going to enjoy the natural flavor of the beef, and then add cheese, lettuce, tomato, ketchup mayo, mustard and my personal favorite guacamole! I didn’t realize you were the one who lives up north in indy and I didn’t mean to omit you from the post as well since you have been there from the begining helping her along the way, and she loves all of the pics you post with your food, I think I’m going to try and post one recipe a week that i cook to help contribute to her site as well.

    Great job, hubby! If my better half puts seasoning on the burgers I consider it a victory!

  4. See, I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to recipes because I’ll read it over and over again, then forget halfway through the process what I just read, only to stare at the recipe in fear I’ll go cross-eyed and the recipe would disappear (my dog likes paper, especially once it gets spritzed by the food). Of course, I do have my moments where I just read it over and then have a whirl. Even if it comes out as a disaster to my tastes, I know someone in my family (even extended) will eat it. It helps to have garbage disposals for cousins.

    You should definitely try pizza on the grill. It’s definitely an adventure. Also, thanks for the shout out! See, you caught on quick to the lingo. Haha.

    • I have been wanting to try a pizza on the grill just havent done it yet. But then the next big question which ingrediants to use so many to choose…

      • All of ’em. Mix it up and try it a few times. My dad had always been the one to do it and it took him a few tries before it became thumbs up material. Now…well, now my mother can’t get him to stop. He’ll even offer to grill it at someone else’s house.

  5. I am sometimes just like you! I read half a recipe and think I know the rest. I’ve learned 😛 Thanks for the shout out dear! 🙂 Love her! 🙂

    • I have found that sometimes our own imperfections can lead to our best creations. (now it might be one or two or maybe even ten times but you know your on some kind of track) thanks again! 🙂

  6. Aww. Thanks to The Hubby…I think lol

  7. Aww. Thanks to The Hubby…I think lol
