DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat broiler to high.
  • Make the meat sauce: heat a large skillet over med-high heat; add in olive oil, red pepper flakes, and ground beef, and break up the meat.
  • Add in bell pepper, onion, ¾ of the garlic, nutmeg, and a little salt and pepper to the beef.
  • Cook together, using the back of a wooden spoon to break up the meat into tiny bits as it browns.
  • Add in the mushrooms; cook 5 minutes.
  • Add in the wine; cook 1 minute, then add the beef stock and tomatoes.
  • Bring mixture to a bubble; decrease heat to medium low, and simmer gently for 10 minutes.
  • Finish by stirring in the chopped parsley.
  • While the meat is simmering, combine the remaining garlic with the softened butter, chopped basil, and a little salt/pepper.
  • Split the rolls in half lengthwise without separating the halves.
  • Press open the rolls, flattening them out a little bit.
  • Slather the insides with the garlic butter and toast until golden brown under the broiler.
  • Top one side of the toasted rolls with a heap of meat, sprinkle each pile of meat sauce with grated cheese, then top that with 2 slices of mozzarella.
  • Transfer them to the broiler to melt the cheese.
  • Remove from the broiler and prepare to get sloppy.
