Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes Ingredients
- Ground beef
- Yellow onion
- Green pepper
- Cremini mushrooms
- Worcestershire Sauce
- A1 Sauce
- Beef broth
- Provolone cheese
- Sesame seed, bakery hamburger buns
A traditional cheesesteak consists of thin-sliced steak, but since this recipe is for Philly Cheese Sloppy Joes it uses ground beef, much like the start of a standard Sloppy Joe recipe. Both types of Sloppy Joe recipes also start by browning the beef in a skillet.
In addition to the meat, other common cheesesteak ingredients include onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and melted cheese. That’s where the flavor similarities in this recipe shine through.
Meaty, flavor-packed, and cheesy, you can always turn up the heat to your sandwiches if your family likes dinner on the spicy side. Add a dash of hot sauce to your ground beef or slice a jalapeño and add it to your onions and green pepper.
How to Make Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
FIRST STEP: In a large skillet over medium heat add ground beef and cook while breaking apart until no longer pink. Drain grease.
SECOND STEP: Return beef to skillet and add onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until onions are tender.
THIRD STEP: In a small separate bowl combine beef broth and cornstarch. Whisk until no lumps remain.
FOURTH STEP: Pour broth over meat and stir well. Add ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, A1 sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir well. Let cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 5 minutes.
FIFTH STEP: Turn off the heat to the burner. Add sliced provolone cheese to the top of the beef and allow it to melt.
SIXTH STEP: Serve meat and cheese mixture on sesame seed hamburger buns.
A1 sauce has a strong flavor. Start with 2 tbsp sauce and then increase to 4 tbsp if you want your meat mixture to be bolder in flavor.
Do you like your bread toasted? While your filling is cooking you can quickly toast your hamburger buns. Split the hamburger buns, butter each side, and then place them in a separate skillet until golden brown.
If you can’t find Cremini mushrooms you can substitute them with any brown or white mushrooms.

Made this recipe for dinner last night. Delicious. I only used the 2 T A1 Sauce as the directions state it is a bold flavor. I omitted the salt and the sauces and cheese provided plenty for us. So yes, this is going in the meal rotation.
