Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes will make you forget your childhood canned sauce memories and make you LOVE sloppy joes again.

Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes will make you forget your childhood canned sauce memories and make you LOVE sloppy joes again.Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes came together pretty organically and randomly for us. We have had Philly Cheese Steak Grilled Cheese sandwiches in our rotation for years (because they are AMAZING) and one day we made up a skillet and…. our bread had become furry.

Gross. Right?

So we had hamburger buns on hand from a hamburger night meal a couple of nights before. The changes I made were just enough to be extra gooey and “sloppy” and only took about a minute.

We LOVED these Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes!

Philly Cheese Steak Hamburger Helper Skillet? YES.

  • Cook exactly as described except double the broth (leave the cornstarch the same).
  • Do not rinse your macaroni, the starch will keep the sauce thickened.
  • At the step where you’d add the cheese, instead add the macaroni.
  • Stir it well together and cook for 30 seconds or until thickened.
  • Add in the Provolone Cheese and stir for just a couple of seconds and serve immediately.

This was a second variation of this Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes recipe we ended up making a week after we made these sloppy joes for the first time. I posted a recipe for this too! Head on over after you’re done on this page, its the best pasta dish we’ve had this year!

Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes can also be made in a skillet.

Want to make these Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes in the Slow Cooker?

  • Add the Ingredients (minus the cheese and buns) to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Just 30 minutes to make these Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes.

Tools Used in the making of these Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes:
Cast Iron Skillet: This is my most used pan in my kitchen, heavy, keeps heat well and gives the BEST sear ever.
Chef’s Knife: This knife is one of the three most used tools in my kitchen (tongs and my pig tail flipper are the other two). I love it, I’ve had it for almost 10 years and it is as sharp today as the day I got it. (left column, second from the top). Mind you I love it this much even though I have a ridiculously expense knife set as well.
Worcestershire Sauce: Do not leave this out or sub it for anything else, this is a main flavor component and this brand is my absolute go-to.
Cheez Whiz: I know what you are thinking, Cheez Whiz? This isn’t even in the ingredients. Yes, I know…because it is a secret guilty pleasure. I add it to the top of my sloppy joes even with the Provolone mixed in. I won’t lie, it isn’t high end, but it is DARN good.
