Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes with Provolone Cheese Sauce

Pin It
If you're a hardcore comfort food lover, you have to try this sandwich. It's kind of like a Philly Cheesesteak...and kind of like a Sloppy Joe. The best of both comfort-food-worlds all rolled into one mouth-watering sandwich. Then topped with a creamy Provolone cheese sauce. As if the Cheesesteak/Sloppy Joe combo wasn't enough, right?
I was blown away by this sandwich. It took very little time to make and used very little ingredients, but the flavor was amazing. Chris and I both really loved the addition of peppers and onions to the beef mixture. (Plus it's a great way to sneak some veggies in for the kids.) The A-1 sauce gives it a little tang and the bold flavor that the beef just craves. Instead of melting slices of Provolone on top, I turned it into a thick and creamy cheese sauce. It's just amazing. You have to try this for yourself soon. Enjoy!

Makes 6 servings

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup A-1 steak sauce
  • 2 tsp. peppercorn steak seasoning 
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 1 cup reduced-fat milk
  • 8 oz. Provolone cheese, chopped
  • 6 hamburger buns
Brown beef in a large skillet. Drain fat & set aside. In the same pan heat olive oil & sauté onion & green pepper for 4 minutes until starting to soften. Return beef to the pan with the vegetables.

Whisk cornstarch into beef broth. Add the steak sauce, beef broth/cornstarch mixture and steak seasoning to the meat. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small pot. Add flour and whisk constantly for 2 minutes. Slowly pour in milk, continuing to whisk, until mixture thickens. Turn off heat and add cheese. Mix until cheese is fully melted.

Toast hamburger buns (if desired) and top with meat mixture. Drizzle cheese sauce on top. Serve immediately.
