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 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 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 JOE RECIPE
STEP ONE: Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over a medium heat. When it’s broken up and no longer pink, drain the grease.
STEP TWO: Return the beef to the skillet then 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 and allow it to melt.
STEP SEVEN: Place the meat and cheese mixture into the hamburger buns.
STEP EIGHT: Serve immediately.
IN THE FRIDGE: You can store Philly cheesesteak mixture in the fridge for up to three days in an airtight container. Reheat in the microwave or in a skillet and add to a hamburger bun before serving.
IN THE FREEZER: Sloppy joe Philly cheesesteak filling will freeze well for up to three months. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove top and add to a bun to make a sandwich.
Philly cheesesteak sloppy joes with A1 sauce are so easy to make in a single skillet. Just brown the beef, throw in the veggies, add sauce and seasoning, top with cheese, and you have a delicious sandwich that makes a filling evening meal.
