Over the last few months I’ve been getting a meal subscription box about once a month.   I’ve tried many over the years and this is the only one we’ve stuck with.

The thing I like about HelloFresh is that the meals are easy enough to make in about a half an hour but they have a lot of flavor to them.  Some are spicy, they have plenty of seasonings, and all the produce is fresh.

I also like that I can replicate the meals on my own.  The ingredients are simple enough I can find them at any market.  The only problem with these boxes are that they are expensive unless you get a deal on them.

I was excited when we received the Philly Style Beef Melts in our box.   It looked like a combination between a Philly cheesesteak and a Patty Melt.   Beef, cheese, onions, and peppers piled high on a hearty roll.  I couldn’t wait to make them.

A skillet full of ground beef, peppers, and onions.

Ingredients:

  • ground beef
  • onion
  • green pepper
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • sour cream
  • Dijon mustard
  • sub rolls
  • beef stock
  • pepper jack cheese
  • cheddar cheese

To make the subs I combined the ground beef, onions, peppers, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a skillet and sauteed for 5-7 minutes or until the beef was cooked through and the vegetables had softened.

In a small bowl I combined the sour cream and Dijon mustard along with salt and pepper.  Set that aside.   Toast the sub rolls.

Add the beef stock and Dijon mustard to the pan with the ground beef and mix well to combine.   Sprinkle the pepper jack cheese on top of the beef and allow to melt.

Fill the sub rolls with the beef mixture then top with cheddar cheese.  Drizzle with the creamy mustard sauce and enjoy.

Do I have to make the mustard sauce?

No you don’t but it adds a nice zing to the sandwich.  If you don’t like Dijon mustard you could use brown mustard instead.

Can I use a different type of cheese?

Yes!  Use whatever type of cheese you’d like as long as it’s a good melting cheese.  Some good ideas are gouda, mozzarella, Swiss, or even Brie.

Can I use steak instead of ground beef?

You sure can!  In this case cook the steak to your liking and cook the vegetables separately.   Thinly slice the steak them combine the steak and vegetables along with the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, beef stock, and Dijon mustard.

These subs are amazing.   The beef combined with the peppers, onions, and cheese is really tasty.  While the mustard sauce isn’t needed it adds a nice tangy flavor to the sandwich.

You could also make these with thinly sliced chicken if you don’t like ground beef.  It would have the same flavors but just a different protein.
