Philly Cheese Steak Sloppy Joes

This dish was made as a b’day treat. It was Jose’s B’day last week and instead of a cake, I made this as his birthday special. He is a fast food junkie and loves burgers or any of its variations (he secretly has a pinterest and instagram collection of burgers to drool over!).

Looks like his love for burger has rubbed off on me too. Even I’ve started liking burgers so much, that I tend to get withdrawal symptoms now if I don’t have it once in a week ;)

I had bookmarked this recipe for quite sometime and looks like it was destined to be a b’day meal!

If you like meat or if you like sandwiches or if you like burger or any of it’s variations, this is a must try recipe. It’s so easy to make and takes very little effort and time. The flavour of the meat is really really good and the whole thing will just leave you happy and content!

Btw, a lil note of disclaimer: I’m not responsible for your food induced coma, if you happen to overeat this ;)

Here is the recipe…

Add the ground beef to a large cast iron skillet (this browns very well) or a large non stick pan and brown until a deep brown crust appears before breaking the beef apart. Stir the ground beef and brown until a deep crust appears on about 50 or so percent of the beef…


Remove the beef (you can leave the fat) and add the butter and the onions and capsicum and mushrooms…


Let brown for 1-2 minutes before stirring, then let brown for another 1-2 minutes before stirring again. Add the beef back into the pan…


In a small cup mix the beef broth / water and cornstarch together. Add the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, beef broth/cornstarch mixture into the pan. Cook until the mixture is only slightly liquidy (about 75% of the mixture is above liquid), 3-5 minutes…


Turn off the heat, add in the provolone cheese…

You can use red onion and white button mushrooms if you cant find yellow onion and brown mushrooms.
Also, you can make it with swiss / cheddar cheese instead of provolone.
You can serve it on mini buns and serve it as appetiser for a party.
