When you combine certain foods together they become extra special, like taco pizza or spaghetti and chili (which is still debatable if you’re not from Ohio). In this case, we’re talking about Philly cheesesteak sandwiches and sloppy Joes. If you’re like me, you will suddenly find yourself asking, “Where has this been all my life, and why do I not have some right now?”

A meal that works for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, this recipe will surely become a staple on your dinner rotation.

This recipe has been pinned over half a million times, and for good reason. It not only holds the nostalgia that a sloppy Joe can elicit, but also brings the comfort that comes from a warm, cheese-laden sandwich.

When the two are combined you’re able to do away with the sweet red sauce of a sloppy Joe (although there is still a smidge of ketchup included) and focus on the meatier and cheesier taste that comes with a cheesesteak. Seriously, it’s a match made in heaven, and I for one am so grateful.

This recipe calls for ground beef, but if you want to make it vegetarian-friendly you can use your favorite ground meat alternative. Whatever you do, do not skimp on the Provolone — all that melty cheese is what makes it!
