Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes - Pinterest Pick #17

I found a new recipe on Pinterest! I like experimenting with Sloppy Joe flavors as you may remember from my Mexican Sloppy Joes (find that recipe HERE). I saw one on Pinterest this week for a Philly Cheesesteak version and thought it would be a great addition to my recipe collection. You can find the original pin HERE and the original recipe HERE. There's not much I would change about this recipe the only thing I did different was saute my onions in with the meat, then add the butter. It came out great!  

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes


  • 4 brioche hamburger buns (or whatever kind of buns you like)
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced (I used a red onion, any onion you like would work)
  • 1 bell pepper, diced (the original recipe called for green, which is traditional, but I had an orange one on hand, so that's what I used)
  • 4 oz button mushrooms, sliced (NOTE: my hubby doesn't care for bell peppers OR mushrooms, so I sauteed them separately in a little olive oil & garlic salt, then my mixed my portion of meat in later - if you don't mind them in your recipe, add them in with the beef & onions, & if you don't like them, leave them out entirely!)
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire
  • salt & pepper (I used Lawry's garlic salt & fresh ground pepper for an extra kick)
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 4 slices provolone cheese, diced

Brown ground beef & onions. (TIP: I like to really sear mine on each side to develop a flavorful crust before I break it up.) Add butter after meat is browned, & stir until butter is melted in.  Add ketchup & Worcestershire & stir until beef is coated. Mix cornstarch & beef broth well, pour into meat & bring to a boil, constantly stirring. Reduce heat & let simmer 5 minutes. Shut off heat & stir in provolone. Season with salt & pepper. Serve on brioche buns. Serve with your favorite side, we used tater tots. Enjoy!
