I've seen the idea for this on Pinterest. But It lacked onions and peppers, It was just beef in a provolone sauce. So when I made this, I bumped up the flavors a lot! Adding some caramelized onions and some green peppers, to mimic that infamous Philly Cheesesteak flavor. Very inexpensive to make, and veryyyyy delicious! I hope you all enjoy! __________________________________ Now...I know some people in Philly argue about which cheese on a cheesesteak is correct. Some will say Cheese Wiz others, will point you in the direction of provolone. Which Is why I gave you both options! :)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a great take on a sloppy joe. It has the onion, pepper and cheese flavor from a Philly cheesesteak but uses ground beef like a sloppy joe. We opted to use Cheez Whiz when testing and loved how it melts into the meat. Provolone cheese would be delicious too. Served on a toasted bun your family is going to gobble it up. They may not be the prettiest when served, but boy is this good.

How To Make philly cheesesteak sloppy joes

  • Butter melting in a skillet.
    Add 1 tbsp butter to the pan.
  • Browning the ground beef.
    Add ground beef. Break up until desired size and cook until browned.
  • Adding onion and peppers to the skillet.
    Depending on how tender or crunchy you like your peppers and onions add them to the skillet. If you like a lot of crunch, add them towards the end of the cooking the ground beef. If you like them soft, but still tender like I do, add them with the meat at the beginning.)
  • Seasonings added to the skillet.
    Once the beef is browned, add your salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic granules. Stir.
  • Pouring beef stock into the skillet.
    Add the beef stock and stir.
  • Adding Cheez Whiz to the skillet.
    Choose your cheese. If you chose provolone, add all the slices, cover until melted. Stir and add milk or half & half until desired consistency. If Cheez Whiz was chosen, do the very same thing, except don't add the provolone... But I probably didn't have to tell you that, lol.
