Cheesesteak Style Sloppy Joes are packed with flavors reminiscent of a classic Philly Cheesesteak. Made with ground beef, these sandwiches are filled with bell pepper, onion, and topped with melty cheese. Best of all, they’re made in a single pan and ready in thirty minutes or less.
Cheesesteak Style Sloppy Joes may be my new favorite ground beef recipe. If you know me at all, you’ll know that I absolutely love a good cheesesteak (check out my recipe for the Best Ever Philly Cheesesteak).
When I started seeing recipes popping up for a cheesesteak sloppy joe, I had to give it a whirl, and of course put my own spin on it!
While I’ve never been a huge fan of sloppy joes, I’m loving this cheesesteak version. They’re filled with sauteed green bell peppers and onions, which provide a bit of crunch and flavor.
If you’re a fan, you can also add in some diced mushrooms (my husband said that was the only thing missing from these sandwiches!). I think a dash of paprika or cayenne pepper would also taste great in this recipe, if you’re looking to amp up the flavor even more.
You should also try my recipe for Cheesesteak Wonton Tarts. They can be made as shown (with ribeye) or with ground beef, just like my sloppy joe recipe.
I’ve also come up with a skillet meal based on my sloppy joe recipe – try my Cheesesteak Pasta Skillet Meal. It’s ready in just 30 minutes, and is made in a single pan! It’s like a homemade, from-scratch hamburger helper.
Lastly, I highly recommend buying some fresh baked bread from your local bakery. I swung by my local grocery store’s bakery and picked up some fresh kaiser rolls.
A lightly toasted, fresh baked bun is the perfect vessel for these sloppy joes.
Cheesesteak Style Sloppy Joes
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 small onion
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 4 slices white american or provolone cheese
- 4 rolls
- Heat a saute pan over medium heat. Crumble ground beef and season with salt and pepper, then cook until browned. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Add butter to pan. Once melted, add onion and bell pepper and saute until onions are translucent.
- Return ground beef to pan. Add garlic powder, worchestershire sauce, and beef broth, stirring to combine. Add cornstarch and stir until dissolved. This will thicken the beef broth and create a sauce.
- Reduce heat to low. Cover meat mixture with cheese slices and allow to set for 1-2 minutes, or until melted. Remove from heat, spoon onto rolls and serve immediately.
