  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 4 slices white american or provolone cheese
  • 4 rolls


  • Heat a saute pan over medium heat. Crumble ground beef and season with salt and pepper, then cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. 
  • Add butter to pan. Once melted, add onion and bell pepper and saute until vegetables brown and onions begin to turn translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low, then return ground beef to pan. Add garlic powder, worcestershire sauce, and beef broth, scraping the bottom of the pan as you incorporate your ingredients.
  • Add cornstarch and stir until dissolved. This will thicken the beef broth and create a sauce. If beef looks dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  • Remove from heat. Top meat mixture with cheese slices and allow to set for 1-2 minutes, or until melted. Remove from heat, spoon onto rolls and serve immediately.



  • Want to spice things up? Try adding a dash of hot sauce or cayenne pepper to your sloppy joes. Or, dice a jalapeno and add with your onions and bell pepper.
  • If you'd like to add mushrooms, I suggest adding them in with the onions and bell peppers.
