Not Quite Philly Cheesesteak Skillet Pasta

"One of my "let's see what I can use up" specials. I found in my freezer 4 sandwich steaks, a tiny container of beef broth and some shredded cheddar. In the fridge, I found a few mushrooms, half a green pepper and a couple slices of american cheese. Tossed together with some staple ingredients, I came up with this family favorite skillet dinner. I think it's time to make this one again. Serve with condiments you would use on a steak sandwich - I use A-1 steak sauce, DH likes seasoned tomato sauce, and the kids liked ketchup. I've also made it with ground beef or venison, using about 1/2 pound of meat."

  1. No steakums, so I sliced Angus steak as thin as I could. Other than that, I made as directed. Some of my family felt this needed more seasoning. But, all in all, it was enjoyed by everyone. Thanks!
  2. This was good and easy to make. I did have to change it up a bit. I used 12 steakums as 4-5 didn't seem like enough. I also used a 15 ounce can of beef broth and about three cups of cheddar and four slices of american cheese. I used minced onions, a whole green pepper and a 4 ounce can of mushrooms. Without any sauce we thought it was very bland. I added about two cups of marinara sauce, salt and pepper and we all enjoyed it.
  3. Would you believe I couldn't find any Steakums in the Superfresh. What kind of self-respecting supermarket doesn't stock Steakums?? I picked what turned out to be a tough cut of meat. I'll use a better cut next time (or I'll go to a different store and get the Steakums!) I used some Crumbles I had left in the fridge in lieu of the American cheese, and I added a handful of halved cherry tomatoes. The tomatoes went in when the pasta did. We enjoyed this in spite of my poor beef judgement. :) Thanks.
  4. We didn't use any condiments, thought it was great just the was it is. Used a whole pkg. of steakums and elbow macaroni, and some minced garlic. Lots of flavor!
  5. OK so i'm home from work and all i knew was whatever i was going to be cooking for the night it envolved steak (thinking to myself if i had to eat another george foreman grilled steak i was going to scream). Hopped on the computer thinking i needed to find something quick but tasty. Lucked upon this reciepe and what a delight. I really wasnt expecting it to come out as well as it did. Shockingly (lol) i really don't know what a phily chessesteak taste like but if it's anything like this pasta..I'm going to give it a try now. To be made so quickly it taste like you would have spent hours on it. thank for the reciepe!!
