The Philly Cheesesteak sandwich is one of my family’s favorites! Turning it into a sloppy joe version makes it an easy weeknight meal.
Tender ground beef, sauteed peppers and onions, and sweet garlic, thickened and served with melted provolone cheese, on toasted, buttery brioche buns. This will bring your family to the table in a hurry. And even better, encourage them to stay awhile. Because, after all, isn’t that what family dinners are all about?Print
Philly cheese steak inspired sloppy joes.
1 ½ pounds ground beef
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
2 cloves, garlic, minced
Salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons Worcestershire
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon beef bouillon granules
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1 cup beef broth
Brioche hamburger buns
Put the ground beef in a large skillet, over medium high heat and begin browning it, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, as you go. Add the mushrooms, and brown everything together, until the meat is almost cooked through. Add the onions, peppers, and garlic; and continue sauteing until the meat is cooked and the vegetables are soft and tender. Season with salt and black pepper. Add in the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and the beef bouillon granules; stirring to combine.
In another glass measuring dish, combine the cornstarch with the water, making a paste. Add the beef to the meat, along with the cornstarch paste, and stir to incorporate well. Continue stirring while the mixture thickens.
Meanwhile, lay a slice of cheese on each half of the buns, and put them under the broiler; just for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese. WATCH CLOSELY so they don’t burn. Spoon the meat onto the cheesy, toasted buns.
