Ground Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese

 Kathleen made these for lunch a few weekends ago.  They were excellent.
Ground Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese

1 pound ground beef
½ tsp salt (we used steak seasoning instead of salt and pepper)
½ tsp pepper 
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
2 tbsp butter 
1 onion, chopped 
½ green bell pepper, chopped (we didn't have any, but added 6 slices of chopped, pickled jalapenos)
salt and pepper to taste 
8 slices American or Provolone Cheese (we used pepper jack)
8 slices white bread 
4 tablespoons butter

Start by browning the beef in the skillet. Try to brown without breaking up the meat too much. Get a nice brown sear on the beef, then break apart as little as possible. You want the meat to resemble a pea in size [you want to avoid taco meat consistency]. Add the salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. 
Stir gently, then remove from pan. 

Add 2 tbsp. of butter in the pan and add the chopped onions and green bell pepper, cooking until browned and caramelized. Add salt and pepper to taste. Once browned, add the meat back in and combine together. 

Spread the butter on one side of each of the 8 slices of bread. Butter side down on the cutting board. Add a slice of provolone to each of the slices. Top four slices with the meat mixture and close the sandwiches pressing down lightly. In a cast iron pan or griddle on medium high add the sandwiches and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side.
