This easy Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak recipe uses a slow cooker to make this Philly Cheese Steak juicy, tender, and delicious for awesome sandwiches for a football game or any time!
With no authentic Philly Cheese Steak near me (I’m far from Philadelphia), if I wanted a truly awesome Philly Cheesesteak, I was going to have to make my own homemade version!
Mr. Flavor Mosaic is so happy that football season is here that he can’t even put into words how ecstatic he is. He looks forward to the start of football season every year. So I need easy, hearty, man-friendly meals like this Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak.
I knew Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches and Sliders would be a hit with both the hubby and our friends because it is so juicy and flavorful.
The slow cooking really brings out the flavor of the meat and provides an awesome au jus for dipping. In addition, the convenience of the crockpot or slow cooker is a life saver.
My hubby raved about these Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches! He said these were much better than the football game he watched since his alma mater lost in the last minute upset.
However, I knew he loved these Philly Cheese Steaks because he asked if I could make them again, like tomorrow!
How To Make Philly Cheese Steak In a Crockpot
What makes this recipe different is the crockpot or slow cooker.
Buy a Sirloin roast or use a chuck roast like I did and slow cook it for 4 hours.
You can choose to sear the roast before slow cooking. However, this time I skipped that step and it was still very flavorful.
Slice the meat thinly. I made the slices a little thicker.
Then pile on the steak onto these Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches along with the cooked onions, red and green bell peppers.
Of course, then you have to top these Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak with American cheese.
Then place the Crockpot Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches under the broiler for about 5 minutes to allow the cheese to melt, and then serve!
Tips For Perfect Philly Cheese Steaks
- Start with a good quality steak, like a ribeye. It has excellent fat and marbling and will keep the steak tender and juicy.
- Be patient! Using the slow cooker makes it easy to make Cheese Steaks and makes them flavorful.
- Don’t skip the seasoning. Follow the recipe and don’t leave out any of the seasoning.
- Choose your cheese! Join in the debate about which cheese is best! American, Provolone, or Cheese Whiz! My recommendation is to add the type of cheese that you like best.
How To Serve Crockpot Philly Cheese Steaks
- Make the traditional Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches like I have pictured here. Just put the steaks on a bun, top with your favorite, melty cheese and onions and bell peppers.

- Top a pizza with the steak, onions, and peppers.
- Add the Philly Cheese Steak to a casserole with pasta or potatoes.
- Look for more Philly Cheese Steak recipes in the future.
What to Serve with the Crockpot Philly Cheese Steaks
