Ingredients You'll Need:
- ground beef
- bell pepper
- sweet yellow onion
- beef broth
- Worcestershire sauce
- Italian cheese blend
I like to use lean ground beef in sloppy joes, but chicken or turkey taste good in this recipe. No matter which meat you use, be sure to drain the fat.
Both canned and fresh mushrooms work. Use whichever you prefer.
Italian cheese blends contain Mozzerella, Provolone, Romano, and Asiago cheeses. These are all super-melty cheeses and will add a smoothness to the meat mixture.
How To Make Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes...
- brown the ground beef in a skillet or multi-cooker until no longer pink and drain the grease
- add to slow cooker along with remaining ingredients except for cheese.
- cover and cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-8 hours
- stir in cheese until melted and serve
Use a mini-chopper to make quick work of chopping the vegetables.
Make your sloppy joes ahead of time! Brown the meat and add the veggies to the slow cooker and they'll cook the day away. Add the cheese just before serving.
Would you rather make this in your Instant Pot? Cook beef on sauté in Instant Pot. Then turn off and add remaining ingredients except cheese. Seal and set to high pressure for 5 minutes. Allow 10 minute natural pressure release. Stir in cheese until melted
If you want to Meal Prep, just add all of the ingredients except for cheese to a freezer container, label it, and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw ahead of time and add to slow cooker when you're ready to make the meal.
