Slow Cooker Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches

┬áThis is one of my go-to easy meals! It is so simple to throw together and cooks all day, making your meat so tender that it practically falls apart. My kids love to eat it on little rolls because it’s the perfect size for their hands, but my husband eats his on foot-long hoagies. ­čÖé

    • The recipe calls for 1 and 1/2 pounds of meat. If you are planning on cooking all 3 pounds, that is double what the recipe calls for, so you will need to double the other crock pot ingredients. Cook close to the same amount of time. May need to add about an hour. Keep checking it so it doesn't burn.
    • Hi Tawnya, The italian seasoning adds a delicious flavor to these sandwiches. You could add Italian dressing for some flavor. Maybe start with a little over 1/8 of a cup. You could always add more as it's cooking if you feel it needs more flavor. Then I would add another 1/8 of a cup.

    Am I the only one who thinks it important for this recipe to suggest the size of the beef slices to use? Just saying to "cut the meat into strips" is lacking the specificity that is needed for trying to duplicate your directions. Has anybody actually prepared this recipe ? Could you please post back with what size strips you used? Thank you!
    • The thickness can vary because it cooks in the slow cooker all day and comes out very tender. So if you like thicker strips, that will work great. If you like your Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches with thin meat, that works great too. We like it sliced about 1/4 to 1/3 inch thick.
