Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

August 22, 2019 in Food, Recipe, Recipes - No Comments

I absolutely love a good Philly. Whether it’s Philly Cheesesteak fries (the best ones I’ve found are at a little deli here in town), or the classic sandwich on a big hoagie roll, I can always be in the mood for one. It’s the perfect food… from the deliciously seasoned meat, the sauteed peppers and onions, and the gooey melty cheese. I decided to mix things up and make a Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe, and then I stuffed a huge baked sweet potato with some of the mixture. The result was a really simple but flavorful dinner than my entire family enjoyed. I think yours will too!


  • 2 TBSP Unsalted Butter
  • 1 lb Ground Beef (or meat of choice)
  • 1 Whole Yellow Onion, diced
  • 1-2 Green Bell Peppers, diced
  • 1/2 C Beef Broth
  • 3-4 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2-3 TBSP Cornstarch
  • Salt, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, to taste
  • 4-5 Large Sweet Potatoes (one for each member of your family, so adjust as needed)
  • 8-10 Slices Provolone (Less if you want it less gooey)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425
  2. Scrub your sweet potatoes clean, and pat dry.
  3. Spray or Rub them with a little bit of cooking oil, poke a few holes into them with a fork, and salt, then wrap tightly in foil.
  4. Bake your sweet potatoes at 425 for 50-60 minutes depending on size. They’re done when you’re able to easily pierce them with a fork.
  5. Brown your ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink, removed from skillet and set aside.
  6. Add butter to pan. Once it’s melted, add in your diced vegetables and saute them for 6-7 minutes or until the onions are translucent and the peppers are nearly cooked through with a little crunch left. (This would be a good time to also add your mushrooms should you want to add those).
  7. Reduce your heat to low and return ground beef to the skillet, add all of your seasonings to taste and then add your Worcestershire sauce and beef broth. Combine well.
  8. Then, add your corn starch and stir until it’s dissolved. The corn starch will thicken the beef broth up a little bit to create a really yummy sauce. If your beef looks too dry, you can add 1-2 tbsp more of beef broth (or water). Scrape the bottom of your pan during this process to combine all ingredients thoroughly.
  9. Keeping heat on low, cover your mixture with the provolone slices. I like to use enough to completely cover the mixture and the skillet, but you can use less to lighten it up. Cover for a few minutes until the cheese gets gooey and melts into the mixture.
  10. Once your potatoes are finished, slice them open and scoop some mixture into it. Serve hot!

You can also use this mixture on top of buttered buns or hoagie rolls!
