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.
