Well, Christmas is finally over. Has everyone recovered? Henry got to experience his first snow (picture below lol) and it was not a success. He was like WHAT in sam hell are you guys doing to me?! It was all okay because he also got his first xylophone, and as you can see (picture below) he was more than a fan. I hope if he is ever a famous musician this picture comes back to haunt his every move. Maybe it can be an album cover. Just saying.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef I use 80/20, lean/fat ratio
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 1 green bell pepper stems & seed removed, diced
  • ½ pound brown mushrooms minced
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • 2-4 tablespoons Velveeta
  • 4-8 slices Provolone cheese depending how cheesy you want
  • 6 ciabatta rolls

Instructions

  1. In a large cast iron skillet, place the ground beef and cook, over medium-high heat, until the crust is seared to a dark brown. Stir the beef and continue cooking it until about 50% of the beef is seared. Place a strainer over a large heat-resistant bowl and strain the beef. Set the beef aside.
  2. Add two tablespoons of the beef fat and butter to the skillet. Add the chopped onions, green pepper and mushrooms. Cook, over medium heat, for 1-2 minutes then stir. Cook another 2 minutes until vegetables are just tender.
  3. Add the beef to the vegetables and stir.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and beef broth.
  5. Add the beef broth mixture, cider vinegar, ketchup, Worcestershire Sauce, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to the beef/vegetable mixture.
  6. Bring to a boil, over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the mixture has thickened, 5-10 minutes.
  7. Heat oven to broil and while the mixture thickens; butter and toast the insides of the buns. Place the buns, buttered side up, on a foil-lined cooking sheet and broil the insides of buns until golden brown. Transfer the buns to a cooling rack.
  8. When the beef mixture has thickened, remove from the heat add the processed cheese. Mix until the cheese has incorporated. Season to taste, if needed.
  9. Remove the top buns from the cooking sheet.
  10. Place a large scoop of the meat mixture on top of each bottom bun and cover with 1-2 slices of Provolone cheese. Broil the sloppy Joes just until the cheese melts and transfer the tray to a cooling rack.
  11. Replace the top buns and serve.
  12. Enjoy!

Oh my these look amazing!! I am going to try them this weekend. Do you think these could be made in an instant pot? obviously not the last part where you broil them on the bun but maybe the GOOEY goodness?
    Becky Hardin
    I do think so! Here's a link I found since I haven't tried them, I think you could use my ingredients and their cook time. Hope it works, please let me know!!! I love our new Instant Pot: https://www.pressurecookrecipes.com/instant-pot-sloppy-joes/

My family loved this. I used ground turkey instead of beef, red pepper instead of green and totally skipped the mushrooms (not a fan). We ate this on a lighter roll (snowflake rolls from food lion). Oh! And used shredded "macaroni and cheese" cheese instead of processed. will definitely be fixing this again. thanks!!
Melissa

Hi! This looks delicious! I need to use 2 pounds of ground beef , as I have big eaters in my family. Can you please give me the measurements for doubling this recipe? Thank you!
    Becky Hardin
    Hi! You can adjust the servings in the recipe card (hover over the servings amount) and it will give you the measurements. Enjoy!

I don't care for regular sloppy joes , but these were out of this world delicious! I have made them twice now. I follow the directions exactly, except I use 2 pounds ground beef, no need to double anything- except I do add a little more cider vinegar and ketchup. I also add garlic. The ciabatta rolls make this over the top! I get 8 generous servings using the 2 pounds of beef. I found Velveeta in single serving pouches, they come in a box of three and one packet is the perfect amount for this! Thank you so much for this recipe. It's been added to my rotation.

I think I forgot to rate this! 5 stars for sure!
