Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes Ingredients

philly cheesesteak sloppy joes raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 small green pepper, diced
  • 8 ounces of cremini mushrooms, diced
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1 cup of beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons of ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons of A1 sauce
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of pepper
  • 8 ounces of provolone cheese, sliced
  • 6 sesame seed hamburger buns

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

BEEF: To make vegetarian Philly cheese sloppy Joes, simply switch the ground beef in this recipe for your favorite meat alternative and switch the beef broth for vegetable broth.

CREMINI MUSHROOMS: These are sometimes called ‘baby Bella’ mushrooms. If you can’t find them, any brown or white mushrooms will be fine.

WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE: If you don’t have this, you could use balsamic vinegar or BBQ sauce in a pinch.

A1 SAUCE: If you can’t get hold of this, you could use any other kind of steak sauce. If you live in the UK, the nearest equivalent to A1 sauce is HP sauce.

PROVOLONE CHEESE: Mozzarella cheese would also work well for this sloppy Joe Philly cheesesteak recipe. 

HAMBURGER BUNS: Don’t like sesame seeds? Some people prefer to use brioche buns for this delicious recipe.

TACO SEASONING: To make this recipe extra flavorsome, you could add a little taco seasoning if you wish.

How To Make This Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes Recipe

STEP ONE: Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. When it’s broken up and no longer pink, drain the grease.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

For an even quicker cooking time, ground beef can be cooked ahead of time. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to a month.

STEP TWO: Return the beef to the skillet and add the onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. Cook for an additional five to seven minutes, or until the onions are tender.

STEP THREE: In a separate small bowl, combine the beef broth and cornstarch. Whisk until no lumps remain. Pour the broth into the skillet and stir well.

STEP FOUR: Add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, A1 sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir again.

PRO TIP:

A1 sauce has a strong flavor so add two tablespoons at first, taste, and then add more if desired.

STEP FIVE: Let it cook, stirring occasionally, for about five minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed.

STEP SIX: Turn off the heat. Add the sliced provolone cheese to the top of the beef mixture and allow it to melt.
