Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

1 pound lean ground beef

2 tablespoons butter

1 small yellow onion, finely diced

1 small green bell pepper, finely diced

8 ounces brown mushrooms, finely minced

2 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 cup beef broth

6-8 ounces Provolone cheese, chopped (use 6 ounces for a less cheesy version)

6 brioche hamburger buns


In a large cast iron skillet, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat until a deep brown crust forms, without breaking it apart immediately.

Stir the beef occasionally and continue to brown until about 50% of it develops a deep crust.

Remove the beef from the skillet, leaving the fat behind, and add butter, onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms.

Let the vegetables brown for 1-2 minutes before stirring, then allow them to brown for another 1-2 minutes before stirring again.

Return the beef to the skillet.

In a small cup, mix beef broth and cornstarch until well combined.

Add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, and the beef broth-cornstarch mixture to the skillet.

Cook until the mixture thickens slightly, leaving about 75% of it above the liquid, for about 3-5 minutes.

Turn off the heat and stir in the chopped Provolone cheese until melted.

Serve the sloppy joe mixture on toasted brioche buns.

Enjoy your meal!
