Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes


Pour cheese on something and I. Am. In. Seriously, it just doesn’t get any better than that. The filling in these “Joes” is loaded with flavor and the roll houses it nicely, with the cheese holding it all together. Cheese is good that way. What a great sales pitch for cheese: holding the world together. LOL! Just remember to eat these sitting down. You’ll go weak in the knees. Safety first!!


1 T extra virgin olive oil

1 lb. ground sirloin

1 onion, chopped

½ green pepper, chopped fine

salt and ground pepper

2 T steak sauce

1 c beef broth

1 T butter

1 T flour

1 c milk

1 c shredded mozzarella cheese

6 potato rolls


Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Brown sirloin in oil. Add onion, green pepper, salt and pepper. Cook 2-3 minutes. Add steak sauce and beef broth. Cook until broth is bubbling. Reduce heat to low.


In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour. Stir for 1 minute. Whisk in milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add cheese and stir until melted.


Cut each roll in half. Hollow out bottom halves (to form a bread bowl shape), if desired. Toast if desired. Spoon meat into bottom halves, spoon cheese sauce over meat, and top with remaining buns. Serve warm. Wrap each leftover roll in foil, refrigerate, and when ready to serve, bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes to warm through.

      Oh sweet! If you’re like me, you’ll skip picking it up all together and dive in with a fork. Messy, messy, good!

    I saw these floating around Pinterest and wondered how they tasted. I figured they’d be good, but with your testimonial it is a done deal for me. Thanks for putting your stamp of approval on the recipe!

    • Carol says:

      “Floating around” . . . I like that! You totally know how to word things. We really like this recipe. Especially if you hollow out the roll and pack it with filling. More meat for those guys!! Our old ward had an activity for the men called “Shoot Guns and Eat Meat”. Perfect guy activity, right?? Haha!
