RD Cooks: Philly Joes

Who didn’t love sloppy joes as a kid? I think I probably begged my mom to make them on a weekly basis. The messy sandwiches are still a great dinner here and there, but sometimes you want a change. Well folks, this is that change you have been looking for. Seriously, the first time I had these, I was in love. I think you will be, too.

Philly Joes (aka Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes)

  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • Hoagie rolls, or bread of choice
  • 1 cup of beef stock
  • 1/2 cup of steak sauce
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper (optional, I didn’t have one on hand)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup of milk (may find that you need more as you go)
  • 2 cups of your choice of shredded white cheese, I used Monterrey Jack


  • Start by tossing your onions and green peppers in a pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes.
  • Add in the ground beef and cook until browned thoroughly.
  • Drain grease and put beef back into pan.
  • Add beef stock, salt and pepper, and steak sauce. You can add more if the mix isn’t “Sloppy” enough for you.
  • Let simmer while you make the cheese sauce.
  • In a separate sauce pan, melt butter completely.
  • Whisk in flour and stir until mixed.
  • Pour in milk, continue to whisk until bubbling.
  • Add cheese and mix until melted. You may find that you need more milk, add little by little until you have a good creamy consistency.
  • Serve the meat on toasted rolls, top with desired amount of cheese sauce and enjoy!
