I love making Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. And although they are delicious, they can take a little bit of time to make. So I always have this simple alternative recipe in my back pocket.
This version includes many of the same elements as a traditional Philly but substitutes the steak for ground beef. It’s very fast to make and has great flavor. You ALMOST forget you aren’t eating the real deal.
Plus you can change up the type of buns you use to find just the right combo. And, of course, the best part about sloppy joes is the mess! And this version is no different. Enjoy!
Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 TBSP olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped (I use pre-chopped veggies to save time)
- 1 green pepper, chopped (I use pre-chopped veggies to save time)
- 1 TBSP cornstarch
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1/4 cup A-1 Steak Sauce
- 2 tsp steak seasoning
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 for each sandwich sliced provalone or mozzarella cheese
- Hamburger buns
Brown beef in a large skillet. Drain fat & set aside.
In the same pan heat olive oil & sauté onion & pepper for 4 minutes until starting to soften. Return beef to the pan with the vegetables.
Whisk cornstarch into beef broth & add the steak sauce & beef broth/cornstarch mixture to the meat. Add steak seasoning, salt & pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Serve on buns! If you want the cheese to be melty, throw the slices on the meat mixture for a bit then spoon desired amount onto your bun. So good!
