Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak Recipe

These Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches are an easy dinner for busy nights. The soft buns are filled with tender beef, savory onions and peppers and topped with melted provolone cheese.

During this season of busy, I love jumping back into my easy slow cooker recipe arsenal! Whether you are making a chuck roast, soup, or delicious sandwiches, my crockpot recipes are some of my favorite recipes to utilize! I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do!

What Cut of Meat is the Best for Philly Cheesesteaks?

Ribeye steak is often the steak of choice for Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. It is well-marbled and tender when cooked. Another cut that we have used with great results is flank or sirloin steak which is lean but very tender when cut against the grain. The crockpot cooking allows for the tender beef to not over cook or dry out, which I always appreciate no matter what cut of meat you choose.

What is the Secret to a Philly Cheesesteak?

For an authentic taste of Philly cheesesteak there is secret ingredient! In addition to soft hoagie roll, cheese, onions, and steak, there is one secret ingredient that is incorporated in the meat marinade: garlic. You can also sprinkle a little garlic powder or garlic salt on the buns if you desired!

What is the Best Cheese to use for Philly Cheesesteaks?

While many people highly recommend trying white American cheese on your cheesesteak sandwich, I don’t always have it available so I like to use slices of provolone cheese! Other popular choices include smoked provolone slices or cheez whiz. I love any melted cheese on this sandwich, so really any cheese of choice can work!

Putting Together your Sandwiches

After you have cooked your tender steak in the meat mixture, and you’re ready to assemble your sandwiches, it really only takes a few minutes to to make your finished sandwich! I gather my remaining ingredients: buns, butter, and cheese and turn my oven to broil.

Butter your hoagie buns and lay them open side up on a cookie sheet. Then you will toast them under the broiler until nicely browned–but be sure to keep an eye on them because they will toast up quickly under your broiler!

After the buns have been toasted, you can use a slotted spoon and spoon the meat mixture and cooked vegetables on to the buns, topping with your provolone cheese slices. Return to the broiler until the melty cheese is bubbly.

Serve hot with your favorite side dishes to complete this great recipe!

You can use the extra broth as a au jus delicious sauce for dipping if you desire. I always like to put a little in a container for the kids because what kid doesn’t like to dip their sandwich into something?!
