Are you craving a delicious savory sandwich that takes almost no time to prepare? Then you have to try my Cheesy Hot Beef Sandwich Recipe! The thick ground beef filling is so creamy and full of flavor, just like a classic sloppy joe.
This sandwich is almost similar to a Philly cheesesteak sandwich or a ground beef sandwich melt. Load your hoagie bun with the Montreal steak spiced ground beef, peppers, garlic, cheese, and cream of mushroom sauce. Once it all cooks together, it turns into a kid-friendly dinner or snack.
Serve these hot and cheesy sandwiches next to my homemade Cream Of Mushroom Soup and a Vanilla Cake Pop for dessert. It’s the best comfort food that’s easy to prepare ahead of time and delicious any time of day.
Ground beef sandwich ingredients
This ground beef and cheese sandwich has everything you love about a classic sloppy joe but uses a smaller list of pantry-staple ingredients. Here’s what you need:
- Hoagie rolls
- Ground beef
- Mccormick’s Montreal Steak Spice
- Onion and garlic
- Green bell peppers
- Cream of mushroom soup
- Worcestershire sauce
- Cheddar cheese
How to Make Hot Beef Sandwiches
Step 1: Cook the ground beef and onion in a skillet with some oil. Season with Montreal Steak Spice before adding the bell pepper and garlic.
Step 2: Pour the mushroom soup and Worcestershire sauce into the mixture. Stir and cook for 5 minutes or until it thickens slightly.
Recipe tips and substitutions
- If your sandwich filling mixture is too thick, mix in a few tablespoons of milk to make it more creamy and thin.
- Drain the beef grease if there’s too much fat, or use a leaner ground beef.
- If you don’t want to make your own cream of mushroom soup, use a 10.5 oz. can of store-bought cream of mushroom soup instead.
- If you love spicy food, mix a teaspoon of sriracha into the filling or top the sandwich with pickled jalapeno slices.
- Skip the buns and mix the sandwich filling with cooked pasta for a cheesy hamburger helper copycat recipe!
- Top your sandwiches with more cheese, parsley, red pepper flakes, or cilantro.
Can this be made ahead of time?
The ground beef filling can be made a couple of days ahead of time. Just keep it in a sealed container in the fridge until you’re ready to assemble the sandwiches.
It’s also freezer-friendly! When the beef has cooled, place it in an airtight container or ziploc bag. Freeze it for up to 3 months and let it thaw completely in the fridge before reheating.
Storing and reheating leftovers
Make sure the leftovers are completely cool before you store them away. You can keep the leftover beef filling in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
To reheat, place the leftovers in a skillet over medium heat and cook until they’re warmed through. Feel free to mix in a little more milk to help it thin out.
