Do you have any recipes from your childhood that you still crave? Philly cheesesteak sloppy is one of those recipes for me. I know it’s not fancy nor is it good for me but I still absolutely love it. My mom and dad made it for us often while we were growing up and it has always been one of my very favorite breakfasts. Since it’s not good for any of us, I only make this recipe once a year, usually for my birthday.
Philly cheesesteak sloppy joes came about when I went to make our regular sloppy joes recipe and was missing some ingredients. It is meaty, flavor-packed, and cheesy all on a toasted brioche bun.
One day my mom was telling me how she only uses my sloppy joes recipe now instead of her old recipe. It totally made me crave them so when I went to make them I realized I was lacking ingredients so we made a Philly version and have been sold ever since! I love that it’s an even easier version!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 yellow onion finely diced
- 1 green pepper chopped
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup beef broth
- ¼ cup A-1 Steak Sauce
- 1 teaspoon steak seasoning
- sliced provolone cheese
- hamburger buns, sliders, etc.
In a skillet pan, over medium-high heat, cook and crumble the ground beef, onion, green pepper, and salt until beef is no longer pink. Drain.
Stir the cornstarch into the ground beef and mix together until the meat is coated in the cornstarch. Add the beef broth, A-1 sauce, and steak seasoning. Stir together and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and let it simmer, while stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Mixture should thicken up and will thicken up more once it’s off the heat.
While meat is simmering, set the oven to broil, and place the buns on a cookie sheet. Butter each bun. Broil for just a few minutes. Watch carefully as they can burn easily.
When the meat is done use a slotted spoon to scoop it out onto each bottom bun. Place a slice of provolone cheese on the top bun. Broil for a few more minutes until cheese is melted.
Place the top bun with the cheese on top of the bottom bun with the philly cheesesteak meat. Eat warm!
