Slow Cooker Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches
Recipe Source: Group Recipes

Serves 4-6 (depending on how big your hoagie buns are)

  • 1 1/2 lbs beef round steak
  • 1 green pepper, sliced thin
  • 1 medium onion, sliced thin
  • 1 (14 oz) can beef broth
  • 1 envelope Italian dressing mix
  • 1 large loaf French bread, sliced into sandwich lengths (or 4-6 hoagie buns)
  • Provolone cheese slices
  • Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Cut meat into strips, place in slow cooker.
  • Add green pepper, onion, broth, and dressing mix.
  • Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours, or high 3-4 hours.
  • Spoon meat mixture onto bread, top with a slice(s) of cheese.
Another option is to toast bread in a 375 degree oven for 5-10 minutes, add meat, cover with cheese, then bake an additional 5 minutes to melt the cheese.

Saturday morning during Enzo’s nap, Addison and I made this recipe.  She really enjoys helping and putting the items in the crock pot.  I find myself making more and more crock pot recipes just because they are so simple and easy.
