1 pound ground beef
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium green bell pepper, diced
1 cup beef broth
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp cornstarch
6 ounces provolone cheese, sliced or in chunks
8 hamburger buns
1 tbsp butter, optional
Place a large nonstick pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
Coat the pan with oil, and add the ground beef.
Stir for 3-5 minutes until the beef is mostly browned. Strain out most of the fat that accumulates.
Add in the onions and bell peppers, and stir for 2-3 minutes until the onions are translucent.
Add in the beef broth followed by the ketchup, Worchester sauce, salt and pepper.
Mix cornstarch with a tablespoon of water in a cup, and add to the pan, stirring constantly as it will start thickening quickly.
Within a few minutes, the mixture should be thick enough to start forming mounds.
Remove from heat, add cheese and slowly stir it in. Meanwhile, start toasting the buns.
Once cheese is fully melted, spoon onto buns. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Use a large skillet to brown your ground beef so it’s not too crowded. If your skillet is not big enough, you can brown the meat in two batches. To get the maximum flavor, it’s better to cook the beef until it forms a deep brown crust.
Make sure NOT to dry out all the sauce. The best sloppy joes have a thick but moist consistency. So cook your mixture until it still has about 10% to 15% liquid.
You can toast your buns under broiler or bake the assembled buns for a few minutes. The toasting and baking process will prevent your buns from getting too soggy. Another tip is to add butter to your buns and it will give your sloppy joes extra delicious flavor.
