This slow cooker Philly cheesesteak leaves you with meat that is so tender and flavorsome that you will be going back for seconds. Best of all, it is perfect for feeding a hungry crowd.
The ideal outcome of this recipe will leave you with some fantastic tender beef and flavorsome vegetables. The sauce is perfect for lightly pouring over the cheese to help it melt while also adding a bit of flavor.
You don’t have to eat this dish in a hoagie roll, though I do recommend it. You can eat it just on its own topped with some provolone cheese. Leaving out the hoagie roll is great if you’re trying to reduce the number of carbs in your food.
This recipe will feed quite a few heads, roughly five to ten people, depending on how hungry they all are. You can easily scale the recipe down if you feel like you don’t need that much food.
Any leftovers are worth keeping as they are great for many other dishes. For example, you can use the beef, bell peppers and onion as topping on a pizza. It’s also great cold in a sandwich the next day.

Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteak Recipe
- 2 kg (4.4 lb) chuck roast

- 2 bell peppers, sliced into thin strips
- 120ml (4 fl oz) dark beer
- 10 Hoagie rolls, cut in halve
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 10 slices Provolone Cheese
- Season the beef with salt and pepper.
- Heat a frypan over high heat.

- If you love mushrooms, then don’t hesitate to add these to the slow cooker. I would slice them, so you don’t end up with large chunks of mushrooms.
- Provolone cheese can be switched for a different cheese. Swiss cheese is a great replacement, but any type of cheese will probably be fine.
- If you can’t get your hands-on chuck beef, then any other tough cut of beef should be fine. This slow cooker philly cheesesteak recipe is pretty versatile.
