Tips for Perfecting the Recipe

Perfecting the Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes recipe involves a balance of flavors, textures, and the right ingredients. Here are some tips to help you make the best version of this dish:

Quality of Beef: Opt for lean ground beef for a healthier option, but if you’re aiming for richer flavor, choose a slightly fattier cut. The key is to brown the beef well to develop a deep, savory flavor.

Vegetable Consistency: The onions and green bell peppers should be diced finely to ensure they cook evenly and integrate well into the sloppy joe mixture. Cooking them until they are just softened but not mushy adds texture to the dish.

Sauce Thickness: The consistency of the sauce is crucial. It should be thick enough to cling to the meat but not so thick that it dries out. Adjust the amount of beef broth and cornstarch as needed to achieve the perfect consistency.

Cheese Choice: While provolone cheese is recommended for its mild flavor and excellent melting properties, feel free to experiment with other cheeses. American cheese or a mild cheddar can also work well in this recipe.

Bun Selection: Choose high-quality hamburger buns that can hold up to the juicy, sloppy joe mixture without falling apart. Toasting the buns before assembling adds a nice texture and prevents them from getting soggy.

Ingredients Needed for This Recipe

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

Instructions for Making Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

Preparation: 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.
Cook Vegetables: Add in the onions and bell peppers, and stir for 2-3 minutes until the onions are translucent.
Add Liquids: Add in the beef broth followed by the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
Thicken Sauce: 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.
Add Cheese: Remove from heat, add cheese and slowly stir it in. Meanwhile, start toasting the buns.
Serve: Once cheese is fully melted, spoon onto buns. Serve immediately and enjoy!
