Slow Cooker Cheese Steak Sandwiches

My husband loves cheese steak sandwiches and this slow cooker version is so simple and full of flavor. Just start it in the morning and you’ll have tender, juicy cheese steak sandwiches by dinner time.  


If you like mushrooms in your cheese steak, add them when you add the peppers, during the last hour of cooking, so they don’t get too mushy. Green peppers are more traditional, but any type of bell pepper will work.

If you’d like to spice things up a bit, top your sandwich with sliced banana peppers or jalapenos.  You could even serve toppings, including the peppers and onions, separately so everyone can create a custom sandwich.

This does make enough to feed a crowd, so if you’re serving less people, you may want to use a smaller roast and half the recipe.

  1. I’m trying to use my slow cooker more. This looks like a great dish when the kids are here and I need to feed a crowd. Thanks.

  2. Oh good heavens Danelle! My family will love this. This is one of my son’s favorite sandwiches. His eyes roll to the back of his head with all these flavors. I can’t wait to make this for him.

  3. I just made this and it’s to die for!!!! Thank you for sharing! I used gluten free bread and opted for an open faced hot sandwich! Delish!
