Instructions

  1. Add the ground beef to a large cast iron skillet (this browns very well) and brown until a deep brown crust appears before breaking the beef apart.
  2. Stir the ground beef and brown until a deep crust appears on about 50 or so percent of the beef.
  3. Remove the beef, drain the fat and add the bacon to the pan.
  4. Add the butter, onions and bell pepper to the pan.
  5. Let brown for 1-2 minutes before stirring, then let brown for another 1-2 minutes before stirring again.

  6. Add the beef back into the pan.
  7. In a small cup mix the salt, black pepper, marinara sauce, beef broth and cornstarch together and add it to the pan.
  8. Cook until the mixture is only slightly liquidy (about 75% of the mixture is above liquid), 3-5 minutes.

  9. Turn off the heat, add in the mozzarella cheese and fold into the meat with a spatula until just melted.
  10. Served on toasted brioche buns.
