What Do You Need To make Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes?
I love how I can easily make these mouthwatering Sloppy Joes with just a couple of simple ingredients.
What you need:
- Lean ground beef
- Yellow onion
- Green bell pepper
- Brown mushrooms
- Worcestershire sauce
- Kosher salt
- Fresh ground black pepper
- Beef broth
- Provolone Cheese Slices chopped
- Brioche hamburger buns
To make this recipe gluten-free (you should use these ingredients instead):
The original Worcestershire sauce is dangerous because it contained barley malt vinegar. But Worcestershire sauce comes in a wide range of variations, including gluten-free varieties. If you don’t have gluten-free Worcestershire sauce, consider the following substitutes:
- Fish sauce
- Gluten-free soy sauce
- Or make homemade Worcestershire sauce by mixing oy sauce, ketchup, fish sauce, and tamarind paste.
Beef broth made from only beef and water is gluten-free, but not all beef broth is made the same way. Make sure to check the label before buying. There are varieties of gluten-free beef broth available in the market, such as Swanson Canned Beef Broth.
Swap Brioche hamburger buns with gluten-free hamburger buns.
