Searching for an easy dinner recipe? Look no further! This Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe recipe is a winner!

We have made it over a dozen times and each time it is received with rave reviews! The list of ingredients are minimal making it the perfect weeknight dinner! Beef is browned with onions and peppers, seasoned to perfection, and smothered in cheese sauce. AMAZING. 

Philly Style Sloppy Joe Ingredients:

A majority of the flavor in this sandwich recipe comes from the beef being cooked with the peppers. You could also add in mushrooms, if your clan will go for it! Listed below are the super basic ingredients needed for this quick weeknight dinner. 

  • Ground Beef- I find that the best meat is ground chuck that ranges from 15 to 20% fat. 
  • Peppers and Onions- I stick with regular yellow onions and green peppers.
  • Beef Stock- Or beef broth. Just use whatever you have on hand. 
  • Rolls- I used ciabatta rolls, but we have also made this using regular hamburger buns with equally delicious results. 
  • Cheese- Again, personal preference here. My kid swears this is better with sliced american cheese singles. 

How to make Philly Sloppy Joes:

  1. Add the ground beef, onion, and pepper to a large skillet. Cook over medium heat until the beef has browned and the pepper and onion are soft, roughly 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir in the beef stock and bring to a light simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook an additional 5 minutes, or until a majority of the liquid is gone.
  4. Lightly toast the buns using a small amount of butter and your broiler. Top the bun with the meat mixture followed by a slice of cheese. Enjoy!

Tip for this recipe:

The meat mixture is FREEZER FRIENDLY! That means you can make it ahead of time for an even quicker dinner! Cook as directed and allow to cool slightly. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze for up to 2 to 3 months.
