I’ve always been a HUGE fan of Philly Cheesesteaks.  Cheese, steak, peppers and onions – what’s not to love???   We have ONE restaurant here in the Sacramento area that serves amazing Philly Cheesesteaks and I wish it was just a little bit closer to us…like, a block away would be perfect :)

I don’t get by there nearly as often as I’d like to so sometimes it’s necessary to make Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteaks at home.  This recipe is a great for weeknights and couldn’t be simpler to prepare.  You know me – I love my slow cooker recipes :)

My boys are a tad particular when it comes to steak.  Unless the meat is super tender – they refuse to eat it.  Cooking the steak in the slow cooker is a great way to ensure optimal tenderness.  I can even use less expensive cuts that still result in Reece-approved tenderness.  The meat is just braising away in the broth, getting more flavorful by the minute!

I LOVE recipes that require only a few ingredients and this one fits the bill.  Serving up these Philly Cheesesteaks with some homemade french fries and a green salad makes the whole family feel like we’re eating out but from the convenience of our home.

What are your favorite recipes to make in the slow cooker?  Do you find yourself using it more as the weather cools?  As I’m writing this I’ve got two slow cookers going  – one with chili and one with cornbread – so I guess I’m using mine A LOT right now!

Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteaks
  • 1.5 to 2 lbs round steak, thinly sliced (the more thinly they are sliced, the less cooking time is required)
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced
  • 32 oz low-sodium beef broth
  • 6 French rolls
  • 12 slices of Provolone, American, or other cheese
  1. Rub the steak with pepper and garlic powder. Place in the slow cooker.
  2. Add onion, bell pepper and beef broth.
  3. Stir to mix.
  4. Cook on low for 5-7 hours or until meat is tender.
  5. Preheat oven to 350F.
  6. Toast open rolls for several minutes until slightly crusty.
  7. Lay a piece of cheese on both sides of the roll.
  8. Use tongs to remove meat, onions and bell pepper from slow cooker (letting juices drip off) and pile on top of rolls.
  9. Return to the oven to melt cheese.
  10. Serve hot!

  11. I made this tonight and everybody loved it! Maybe it is just me and it is just my Korean taste bud and I haven’t tasted enough cheese steak but it didn’t have enough flavor for me :( But everybody loved it! Would you recommend a change in anything? Maybe I did something wrong…I doubled the recipe :(

      Since reading your post, I was a bit worried about the flavor because I am really into having lots of spices and herbs. So we added half of a scorpion pepper and let me say that you will not be disappointed in the bump up in spice. :)

  12. Elaine Skinner says:

    Made this for my husbands birthday dinner. I used a flank steak. I found this very easy to make and very tasty! Will make again!

  13. Hey Trish! Should I cut the meat before I cook it or after? I’m a newbie at these things. thanks!

  14. This is a great recipe. I made it for the first time this week and it was so good, we fought over the leftovers the next day! Thanks!

  15. Christine Walton says:

    Our family loves these! Loves that it uses a cheaper cut if meat and comes out amazingly tender!

  16. If I am short on time can I put the crock pot up to high to cut the cook time in half??

  17. What restaurant in Sac? We will be trying this, but love a great philly cheesesteak!

  18. Hi from Germany!
    Just having filled up my Slowcooker with this recepie! Thanks for this great idea!
    The only tweek I did to it, I was searing the Steak before cuting into thin stripes and stir fried the onions in the same skillet to not waste the Steak flavor. I will leave it now on high for 4 hours an look forward to what it is look and taste like :-) thanks again for the recepie!!

  19. I made this for dinner tonight. It was delish! Thanks for the idea.

  20. I’ve made this several times, its awesome!!

  21. This looks delicious! I’m making it tonight for dinner. How well would this freeze? I’m getting into the frozen meals movement to help my boyfriend and I save time and money when we move in together. I know we’re both going to love this!

  22. Hi, I’m Marlene, from Lima, Perú, i prepared this recipe and rostisserie chicken salad sandwich, and both were delicious. Congratulations and thank you so much.

  23. I tried this recipe and it was very good. I did miss a little of the crust and carmelization from pan sautéing. But it was still really good. Although, I did use gouda cheese (which is what I had, my favorite, and it was amazing on it) and some people use condiments on their philly cheese steak sandwiches, but I used the broth that I cooked it in, added a few shakes of soy sauce and made a delicious au jus sauce to dip the sandwiches in. It was fabulous! My family LOVED it!

  24. Did you cook on high?

  25. Your recipe reads: Return to the oven to melt cheese.
    Serve hot!
    However your recipe does not mention to preheat the oven…. At what temp?

    Made this for dinner this weekend as I was craving a philly cheese steak but I knew the steak would be tough if I just pan cooked it. So I looked for a slow cooker recipe. This turned out delicious! I am a wild mushroom hunter so we added in some wild mushrooms and half of a scorpion pepper…needless to say, it was fantastically hot and yummy. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you!

    Our Local WallyWorld took a nice Flat Iron Steak and sliced it paper thin for me (Just make sure they know to cut it Long way to get tender strips) which took a lot of the work out for me> (HINT: stick your meat in the freezer for an hour before cutting this makes the meat easier to cut, more stable on your cutting board and keeps the Juices in place better)
