Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 8 ounces brown mushrooms, 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
  • 8 ounces provolone cheese slices, chopped (use 6 ounces if you prefer it less cheesy)
  • 6 brioche hamburger buns


  1. Brown the Beef:
    • Add the ground beef to a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Brown until a deep crust forms on about 50% of the beef, then break apart and continue browning until fully cooked.
    • Remove the beef from the skillet, leaving the fat behind.
  2. Cook the Vegetables:
    • Add the butter, onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms to the skillet. Let them brown for 1-2 minutes before stirring, then allow them to brown for another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Combine and Simmer:
    • Return the browned beef to the skillet.
    • In a small cup, mix the beef broth and cornstarch until smooth.
    • Add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, and the beef broth-cornstarch mixture to the skillet. Stir well.
  4. Finish the Filling:
    • Cook the mixture until it’s only slightly liquidy (about 75% of the mixture should be above the liquid), approximately 3-5 minutes.
    • Turn off the heat and stir in the chopped provolone cheese until melted and well combined.
  5. Serve:
    • Toast the brioche buns and spoon the sloppy joe mixture onto the bottom halves.
    • Top with the other half of the buns and serve immediately.
