Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

We've made this recipe a few times now and enjoy it so much! It's quick, it's delicious, and it requires very few ingredients. 

The original recipe featured on A Taste of Home Cooking calls for a homemade cheese sauce, but we skip this step and just slap a slice of Provolone right on top making it an even quicker meal to pull together. And when you have a 1-month old who tries to creep in on your dinner time, quick and easy is a MUST! ;)

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes - slightly adapted from A Taste of Home Cooking

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2 TBSP steak sauce
  • 1 c. beef broth (we've also used 1 Beef Bouillon cube mixed with 1 c. water)
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • hamburger buns
  • Provolone cheese slices
Start by browning your ground beef in a large skillet; drain fat.
Add in bell pepper and onion, and cook until veggies are tender (about 3-5 mins).
 Once veggies are tender, add in steak sauce and beef broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let most of the juices cook out (about 5 mins.)

Assemble your sandwiches!
 Place cheese slices on top
 And put them in a 350-degree oven until the cheese melts...yum!!

Enjoy! :)


  1. I made this once, directly from Rachael Ray's cookbook...admittedly we could only taste the A1 and the cheese sauce was seemingly gritty. I see this on other blogs, and don't hear those comments, so do you have any advice on the recipe? And, one month old? Time sure flies!

    1. We actually use the Walmart brand of Steak Sauce, and I find it's not as "tangy" as the A1, so maybe that's why ours doesn't have a real strong steak sauce flavoring? I also don't make the cheese sauce - we just used sliced Provolone and skipped the sauce altogether. I would try reducing the amount of steak sauce, and then just use sliced cheese and see if it turns out different for you! :)

  2. Looks delicious! I like this idea.
