Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

A simple and kid friendly spin to a classic sandwich! The cheese sauce sends it over the top; please, please don't leave it off. I couldn't find A1, so I used HP sauce from Heinz. It was an adequate substitute, but I don't think it has the same kick as A1. I'm hoping I can find the good stuff soon because I will be making these again! I served them with Baked Parmesan Seasoned fries. It was a great dinner.

Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

Serves 4


  • 1 pound (450 g) ground beef
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 mL) steak sauce (like A1)
  • 1 cup (240 mL) beef stock
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 hoagie rolls
  • 1 Tablespoon (14 g) butter
  • 1 Tablespoon (8 g) flour
  • 1 cup (240 mL) milk
  • 1 cup (113 g) provolone cheese, shredded


Preheat oven to 375º.

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and drain off any excess grease. Add the bell peppers and onions and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add in the steak sauce, broth, and salt and pepper to taste.

Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and continue simmering until most of the liquid is gone.

Meanwhile, cut the rolls nearly in half and place in the oven to toast. Don't forget them!

In a large saucepan melt the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook for about 1 minute. Whisk in milk and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer stirring frequently until it begins to thicken, about 2–3 minutes. Stir in cheese until sauce is smooth and creamy. Remove from heat.

Place scoops of the meat mixture into the toasted rolls and top with the cheese sauce.
