Zesty Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes










2 tablespoons salted butter

1 medium white onion, diced

1 medium green bell pepper, diced

2 pounds ground beef

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste

1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth

¼ cup steak sauce

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons minced pickled jalapeno peppers

1 tablespoon pickled jalapeno pepper juice

1 teaspoon Creole seasoning , or to taste

2 tablespoons cornstarch

2 tablespoons water

8 slices provolone cheese

1 (16 ounce) package wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted


1️⃣ In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Sauté the onion and bell pepper until they’re soft and fragrant, about 5-7 minutes.

2️⃣ Add the ground beef, garlic, salt, and black pepper to the pot. Cook, stirring frequently, until the beef is thoroughly browned and crumbly, about 7-8 minutes. Drain any excess grease.

3️⃣ Stir in the beef broth, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, jalapeno peppers and juice, and Creole seasoning. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

4️⃣ While the beef simmers, mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl to create a slurry.

5️⃣ Add the cornstarch slurry to the beef mixture, stirring constantly, until it reaches your desired thickness, about 1-2 minutes. Adjust the seasoning with more Creole seasoning and pepper if needed.

6️⃣ Remove the pot from the heat. Place a slice of provolone cheese over the beef mixture and let it melt.

7️⃣ Carefully scoop the cheesy beef mixture onto the toasted buns, ensuring each sandwich gets a good portion of melted cheese.

8️⃣ Serve the sandwiches hot and enjoy the melty, savory goodness of your Cheesy Beef & Pepper Sandwich Delight!
