  1. Cut the sausage casing with a knife and empty the meat into a large skillet that's been preheated on a medium-high flame.
  2. Break apart the sausage into pea sized crumbles.
  3. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until fully cooked.

  4. Remove the sausage and drain all but 2 tablespoons of the remaining oil.
  5. Add the bell peppers and onions and cook, stirring, for 5-7 minutes.

  6. Add the barbecue sauce, tomato sauce and beef broth.
  7. Simmer until reduced by half, about 6-8 minutes.

  8. Add the sausage back in, dot with the cheddar cheese and mix slightly just to start melting the cheese.
  9. Serve on toasted brioche buns.
