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.

Cheesy Hot Beef Sandwich Recipe

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:


Ground beef and onion in the skillet.

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.

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.

What to serve with hot beef sandwiches

Pair these juicy sandwiches with a hot bowl of soup and a salad for a comforting and family-friendly meal:

    Tried this tonight. I was looking for something different. I mixed it with pasta instead of doing the sandwiches though. It was really good and will try it again.

    I had a pound of ground beef and I was just tired of making the same ole stuff with it, so I set off on a Pinterest mission to find something different that my picky husband would eat.

    Now don’t get me wrong, I couldn’t let him watch me make it because had he spotted that mushroom soup, he would not have even given it a chance no matter how great it looked, smelled or tasted.

    So, I did what I often do when I don’t want him to see the contents of a recipe, I buried the evidence down in the bottom of the trash can but not before my picky mother spied with her little eye the same mushroom soup. She said, “I’m not eating that. You put mushrooms in it.”

    Needless to say, this was a HUGE hit with both of my over 50 picky eaters. lol

    Mom sampled it when it was done with hesitation and a twitching eye and suddenly her eyes opened wide as she smacked her lips and took another scoop off my plate. “OMG that’s good. He’s gonna like this!”

    So, it was a win / win at our house. I think they were both disappointed that there wasn’t enough left for a second meal because they were like little piggy’s and both had 2 servings. Mom wrapped hers in tortillas with lettuce and tomato, Tim had his on a hoagie, I wrapped mine in lettuce for a more carb friendly option.

    I can’t wait to try a few more recipes.

  5. If I’m using cream of mushroom soup from a can, do I dilute it first? Or do I just use it straight from the can?

    I like to try different recipes, this was good and easy for lunch. I did make the homemade mushroom soup also.
    I did only add 1 cup of soup to the meat mixture and served the rest of the soup as a side. I will make it again!

    This was an amazing find on a snowy day! We used Munster cheese on our sandwiches because I didn’t have shredded, but it was plenty think without. Thank you!

  8. Holy cow this was good! Family loved it as well. Forgot to take a picture because we inhaled this. I usually look to improve a recipe. This doesn’t need any altering.

  9. Looking forward to trying this next week. Question though, the recipe calls for cream of mushroom soup, but the pictures look like it’s golden mushroom soup instead, which is it? Thanks!

    Very good! Definitely be making again.

    I haven’t made this yet. Have a question. Is there anything that can be substituted for the mushroom soup? Can’t eat mushrooms.

    • You could try cheese soup or cream of chicken soup, I haven’t tried it yet, but I heard people like to use these soups instead of mushroom soup.

      • I am making this tonight and not using cream of mushroom. I have some leftover heavy whipping cream and I’m going to add some beef broth in that. If it’s not thick enough I’m going to use some flour. I’ll give an update on after it’s made.

      • Sounds wonderful, Alexis!

  12. Darlene Higgins

    I don’t like mushrooms or mushroom soup . Is there a sub for it that would still make it creamy ?

  13. Does the cream of mushroom soup go into the meat mixture or get served as a side? That step is kind of confusing. Thanks!

  16. I made it as stated except substituted cream of bacon soup and was perfect 👌.

    I used ground bison, and it was really good! I think I overdid the cheese a little, but that’s my own fault. Next time, I’ll add the steak sauce, like a reviewer up above did…it needed just a little more zip.

    First time making this and I had to make some adjustments since I didn’t have all the ingredients. I omitted the green peppers, substituted the seasoning for Morton season all, subbed in cream of chicken, and added Colby cheese instead of cheddar. I had to adjust the measurements and overall it was pretty good.

    It turned a bit too creamy so I lessened the amount of cheese and added sriracha to cut the creaminess. I also served it with some pickles.

    Made it the first time a few weeks ago using Ground Turkey and the family loved it! Making it again tonight using leftover pot roast.

  20. Roxanne Thorman

    I just made this tonight, however I omitted the cream of mushroom because I am not a fan of mushrooms. I did add everything else and I added steak sauce to it which gave it a steak flavor. Loved this thanks!!

  21. Can’t wait to try, it looks delish! I’m thinking, just reading the ingredients, that this might be delicious over pasta. Hmmmm. Will have to try both and let you know.

  22. Elizabeth Rosenberg

    Hi! I’m allergic to mushrooms. Normally I would substitute cream of chicken. Would you recommend that? Thanks!

    • I haven’t substituted it with cream of chicken but I heard people like using cream of chicken, cream of celery or cream of cheese soups in recipe like this. Hope this helps! Please let me know if you make it with cream of chicken soup.

  23. I didn’t see Montreal steak spice as an ingredient when I went shopping. Any recommendations for substitution?

  24. 5 stars
    Finger licking good. Thank you so much for sharing. Hello from India.

  25. Are you supposed to drain the meat after cooking it with the onion?

    • Hi Laura! That’s a great question! If ground beef has a lot of fat in it I would drain it, I usually buy ground beef with less fat and I don’t drain it after cooking with onion. Hope this helps!
