Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

After I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I knew I had to make it right away. And then I made it again and again. It fast became one of our favorite, go-to dinners. Don't be fooled by this recipe. It looks very simple and unassuming, however, I was blown away at how much these tasted like a real cheese steak, minus all the grease. Don't get my wrong, I love cheese steaks, but these are a nice alternative. If you're looking for an easy, flavorful dinner, then this recipe is for you.

Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes
Source: adapted from Rachael Ray

1 pound ground beef
1 medium green bell pepper (chopped)
1/4 cup steak sauce 
1/2 cup cup beef broth
3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper (to taste)
4 to 5 slices provolone cheese

Brown ground beef in a cast iron skillet with the green pepper.

Drain well and return meat to the skillet and add steak sauce, beef broth, worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. 

Simmer over a medium-high heat for about 10 minutes until the liquid is absorbed.

Layer the provolone cheese on top of the meat mixture and either cover with a lid, place under broiler, or in a hot oven to melt the cheese. Serve on hardy rolls.

  1. We had these last night as well. I top with the cheese sauce in the original recipe and just love it. Can't beat them!
