Philly Joe’s

I LOVED this recipe! It’s easy, quick and oh so simple! I love Philly Cheese steak sandwiches! The problem with making them is if you are going to use a good piece of meat to make them up it can cost you a small bundle, also taking the time to cut the meat thin enough can be very time consuming! I don’t want to have to deal with either one of those problems so I knew there had to be a compromise!  
A lot of people use Steak-ums, but I saw the price on a box of those in the grocery store the other day and was utterly shocked. How it is that extra thin crappy meat can cost so much? I ended up buying a nice roast for cheaper and I got more for my money.
So anyway how do you come up with a Philly Joe? Well, a Philly Joe is the combination of a Philly cheese steak sandwich and a sloppy Joe = Philly Joe!  They are excellent and make a great week night meal. You can even make the meat ahead of time and freeze it!
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 large green bell pepper sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 8 oz. can of mushroom pieces drained
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pack Lipton dry onion soup (if you can find it Beefy mushroom its even better)
  • 8 slices of smoked provolone
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 rolls or burger buns


  1. In a skillet brown ground beef and drain well of excess grease
  2. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic cook until vegetables are tender
  3. Add dry soup, and mushroom and water , then cook another 10-15 minutes on medium giving the soup time to season the meat well and cook until the excess liquid cooks down.
