Philly Cheese Steak Dip

I just love making a meal out of appetizers! That's why I love it when I'm doing a wedding reception and the bride asks about finger foods. It's the best way to get your guests moving, talking and enjoying themselves. Without having to sit down to a big formal dinner, guests have more freedom to mingle and have fun. There is always seating for those who like to observe and be wallflowers. (More like be inconspicuous and take pictures! LOL)

With the big game just around the corner, I thought I'd post some appetizer recipes. I love the recipes that take the big flavor of a meal or sandwich and compound that into a dip or mini app. This dip takes the flavors of one of my favorite sandwiches... the Philly Cheese Steak!

Philly Cheese Steak Dip

1 package (17 oz.) refrigerated beef roast au jus
1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped onion
1 cup chopped bell pepper
1 jar (15 oz.) process cheese dip
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In a large skillet, saute onion and peppers and beef. Cook until onions and peppers are soft. (Or if you prefer, you can microwave the mixture for 2 1/2 minutes on high.) Drain beef mixture, reserving juices. Use two forks to shred beef.

Add beef mixture to 2- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker coated with cooking spray. Stir in 1/3 cup of the reserved juices (If you don't have enough juice, add beef broth to equal 1/3 cup... more if needed), cheese dip, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Cover and cook on high for 1 to 2 hours.

Serve immediately with crackers or chips. (Or, keep warm in slow cooker on low setting for up to 2 hours.
