How this Dip Came to Be
When anyone makes a new recipe, it’s always that person’s hope that everyone will love it, right? Of course, that doesn’t always happen, (don’t worry — those don’t get shared with you here) but for some reason, when my appetizer recipes do well, especially dips, I feel like I hit the jackpot.
Dip recipes are perfect for any kind of get-togethers, really. I have heard people talk of having parties with JUST DIPS. Brilliant! But even more so than parties … I love having new dip recipes to take to our tailgates. So it’s always a win when a new one that I try is a keeper.
A Goal. A Home Run. A Hole In One. A Touchdown if you will?
Our oldest son attends the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. Ever since he began there, we started having tailgates for the home games. He brings along his friends from school, I make a whole bunch of food and we get ready to go in and cheer on our team, The Nebraska Cornhuskers. They don’t always do well, especially this year, ugh, but we go and cheer them on nonetheless.
October is Tailgate Month
Back in 2016 and 2017, I participated in National Tailgate Month. In 2016, I made this super tasty Hot Beef & Bean Dip. This stuff ROCKS. I made it right in a cast-iron skillet, that made it easy to heat right on our tailgating grill. Serve it up with Frito’s corn chips and watch it disappear.
Cream Cheese– Softened cream cheese allows this steak dip to be filled with creamy flavors and gives it extra richness, too. It’s so good in this dip. Yummy!
Sour Cream– You will want to use sour cream to make sure the dip is extra delicious!
Butter– Salted or unsalted butter is used to sautée the veggies and gives them nice buttery flavors.
Brown Sugar– Sweet brown sugar is the secret ingredient in this delicious dip and gives it a nice twist.
Onions– White or yellow onions are sautéed until fragrant and mixed within the dip for savoriness.
Garlic: Fresh garlic is great for this recipe because it is aromatic and so full of flavor! I love to use fresh garlic anytime I’m cooking.
Green Pepper– Green bell peppers are classic ingredients for Philly cheesesteak sandwiches so, of course, this dip contains fresh green peppers.
Roast Beef: Sliced deli roast beef is chopped and baked until crisp and done.
Provolone Cheese: Melted smooth provolone cheese is mixed throughout the dip and on top!
HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a stand or hand mixer, beat the softened cream cheese and sour cream until mixed.
Next, in a skillet over medium heat, add the butter and brown sugar. Cook until the butter is melted and toss the diced onions in until they are translucent. Cook the onions for about ten minutes.
Add in the minced garlic and peppers and cook until softened. Chop the veggies with the spatula.
Add the cooked veggies to the cream cheese mixture. Fold in the chopped roast beef, then fold in some of the provolone cheese making sure to reserve some for the topping.
Spread the mixture into a greased baking dish and top with the rest of the provolone.
Bake the dip in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly! Carefully, remove the dip from the oven.
Serve with crackers, baguette slices, veggies, and more!
