Philly Cheesesteak Loose Meat Sandwiches

Sloppy Joes aren’t my favorite meal in the world.  I think I categorize them more as a food I like, but could live without.  The hubs doesn’t like them at all because he says the mess just isn’t worth the taste.  In the time we’ve been married, I think I’ve only eaten them once (at my parents’).  For whatever reason, I was really liking the thought of having some for supper the other night.  Since Caleb doesn’t prefer the typical, overly saucy Sloppy Joe, I did a little searching on pinterest and found this recipe via  While they are still a loose meat sandwich and some of the meat is inevitably going to fall out as you’re eating, it’s not saucy and leaves very little mess behind.  I’m calling it a keeper recipe since it has a very unique taste, separating it from both Sloppy Joes and your average cheeseburger, and bonus! Caleb enjoyed it as well.  If you find yourself drowning in ground beef and don’t know how to use it, give this one a try! 🙂

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • 3 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • slices white pepper-jack cheese
  • whole wheat hamburger buns
  • sandwich pickles

Brown ground beef in oil until cooked through.  Add in onion and pepper and cook a few minutes or until veggies are crisp and tender.  Stir in steak sauce, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and salt & pepper.  Cook until liquid is almost gone.  Scoop onto buns, top with cheese and pickles, and enjoy!  We think the pickles were a necessary and amazing addition, so don’t forget them! 🙂

Also, if you want an amazing side option, these cheesy hashbrowns are the best!  They bake for about an hour, but only take 5 minutes of prep time!
