HOW TO MAKE CHEESESTEAK STYLE SLOPPY JOES
Step 1: In a saute pan, cook the ground beef over medium heat. Crumble and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes until browned. Once browned, remove from the pan and set aside.
Step 2: Melt butter in the same pan, add onion, and bell pepper. Saute for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the vegetables begin to brown and the onion is translucent.
Step 3: Lower the heat and return the ground beef into the pan. Sprinkle the garlic powder, add in the Worcestershire sauce, and beef broth. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the pan as you are incorporating the ingredients.
Step 4: Stir in the cornstarch until dissolved. Cornstarch helps thicken the broth and creates a sauce. If the beef looks dry, you can add 1 to 2 tbsps. of water.
Step 5: Once set, remove the pan from the heat. Then, place the cheese slices on top of the meat mixture and let it sit for 1 to 2 minutes until the cheese is melted. Spoon the sloppy joes onto the rolls and serve quickly. Enjoy! For any leftovers, store in a sealed container and can keep it in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.
