Sloppy Joe Grilled Cheese

Sloppy Joe Grilled Cheese


• 8 Pane Turano Slices
• 8 American Cheese Slices
• 1 pound lean ground beef
• 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
• 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
• 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
• 3/4 cup ketchup
• 2 tablespoons brown sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
• 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
• 4 tablespoons unsalted butter


① Add the ground beef to a large skillet (this browns very well) on high heat 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, and it is cooked through, then remove the beef, drain the fat, and add the butter, onions, and bell pepper to the pan.

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

③ Add the garlic, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, to the pan and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated (about 75% of the mixture is above the liquid), 3-5 minutes.

④ Spread the butter on one side of each of the Pane Turano slices. And place them butter side down on the cutting board. Add a slice of American Cheese to each of the slices. Top six slices with the meat mixture and close the sandwiches pressing down lightly.

⑤ In a cast-iron pan or griddle on medium-high add the sandwiches and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side.
