I cannot get enough of Sloppy Joes. I love Bayou Sloppy Joes. Seriously messy Sloppy Joes. Sloppy Joes made with chorizo. Sloppy Joes made in a slow cooker. Any way you cook ’em, I’ll eat ’em. Like these Philly cheesesteak Sloppy Joes. Made in just minutes, and packed with the flavors of a traditional Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Of course, topped with a creamy cheese sauce. Now, if you don’t think provolone cheese is ‘proper’ on a cheesesteak, you can surely substitute Cheese Wiz and have your Sloppy Joe ‘with’.

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

I was raised on A-1 steak sauce, but some folks were raised on Heinz 57. Either sauce (or any other steak sauce for that matter) is great on these Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes sandwiches.

I highly recommend that you shred or grate your own cheese at home. Don’t buy the pre-shredded or pre-grated stuff. It has stuff added to it to keep it from sticking together. That ‘stuff’ affects how the cheese melts. Shred it yourself and use the good stuff.

Also try my copycat Manwich Sloppy Joes and my crazy-good slow cooker cheesesteaks.
