I’ve always loved a good Philly Cheesesteak sandwich! Melt in your mouth beef steak slices, a good hoagie bun and lots of melted provolone. It’s all I need on a bad day. But I think it’s time to change my mind. I don’t know if it’s even possible to top a good philly cheesesteak sandwich, but these sloppy joes will blow your mind!

Made with ground beef, onions, peppers and melted cheese, these sloppy joes definitely remind you of the famous sandwiches but are way more fun. What I like the most is that they are so simple to make and don’t take too long to cook – perfect recipe for a weeknight dinner when you don’t want to do too much but still want a delicious meal on the table. Plus they are messy and well, sloppy so kids really like them.

Just in case you can’t find provolone, top it up with your favorite cheese and you’ll be good to go.
