2 tbsp butter

1 small yellow onion diced

8 oz. brown mushrooms minced

2 tbsp ketchup

1 small green bell pepper diced

1 lb lean ground beef

1  tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp cornstarch

1  cup beef broth

6 brioche hamburger buns

8  oz. Provolone Cheese Slices chopped (use 6oz if you don’t want it very cheesy)

1/2 tsp Kosher salt

1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper


In a large cast-iron skillet, cook the ground beef, breaking the meat up into chunks as it cooks until a deep brown crust appears.

Mix and continue to cook further until about 50 percent or so of the beef has a deep brown crust.

Set the beef aside. If desired, leave the grease in the skillet.

In the same skillet with the beef grease, add the butter, onions, bell peppers, and onions. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes, undisturbed. Then, stir and continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes more before stirring again.

Then, return the beef to the pan.

Whisk the beef broth and cornstarch in a small cup until well-mixed.

Into the pan, add the ketchup. Next, add the Worcestershire sauce and season with salt and black pepper. Then, pour in the beef broth/cornstarch mixture.

Continue to cook for additional 3 to 5 minutes until the mixture is just a bit liquidy.

Turn the heat off, then add the provolone cheese.

Serve the Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes toasted brioche buns. Enjoy!


How To Make it Gluten free

Use gluten-free Worcestershire sauce. If not available, consider using fish sauce or gluten-free soy sauce instead. Or make your own by combining soy sauce (tamari), ketchup, fish sauce, and tamarind paste.

Check the label to make sure you are using gluten-free beef broth such as Swanson Canned Beef Broth.

Use gluten-free hamburger buns instead of Brioche hamburger buns.
