I always enjoy a nice homemade traditional style Philly cheesesteak sandwich made with shaved rib-eye beef, onion and cheese but every time I make them I can’t help but think that a quick and dirty ‘sloppy joe’ version would be easier and just as good! The rib eye is a little more expensive and shaving it takes a bit of effort but ground beef is relatively cheap and it’s almost always available! Sloppy Joes are sandwiches made with ground meat in a sauce served in a hamburger bun and this recipe starts off with the ground ground beef and onions along with the optional green peppers to which a ‘sloppy joe’ style sauce is added with beef Worcestershire broth, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and some steak seasoning. Of course they would not be cheese steaks without the cheese and you can use either of the authentic cheese’s: whiz or provolone.
What’s your favourite Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes? Wit whiz or whiz provolone?
I like both versions!
What if you don’t like cheese whiz? How about provolone?
Just look at how stingy that melted provolone is!
Top with the provolone, place it under the broiler to melt it and mix it in!
messy but so worth it!

Hi, love your site and was just reading your Sloppy Joe sandwich. For years my kids have loved “Spoonburgers” served either on toast or toasted hamburger buns.
The recipe is simple
1 lb hamburger
1 chopped onion
1 chopped green pepper
1 can creamed corn
Method: Cook hamburger with onion and green pepper, drain, add 1 can creamed corn plus ketchup to taste (I use about 1/2 cup more or less), salt and pepper to taste Serve over toast or toasted hamburger buns.
This looks delicious. Can ground chicken be subbed for the ground beef and still taste as good?
Chicken would work!

Kevin, this looks just like what I’ve been searching for. I remember sloppy joes from many years ago and have tried to duplicate it, but all the recipes I’ve found do the ketchup, mustard and brown sugar thing, which doesn’t taste like the sloppy joes that I remember. This sounds good, and I will definitely give it a try soon!. Thanks much.
