This recipe for Philly cheesesteak sandwiches is one of those Crock Pot meals you will want to make again and again, because you get that authentic Philly cheese steak taste, yet none of the hassle. It is a cinch to prepare, because all of the work is done in the Crock Pot. Just dump everything in, and a few hours later, dinner is ready! Even better: You can buy a leaner cut of meat and let the Crock Pot cooking tenderize it. Look for thinly-sliced round steak in the meat section of your local grocery store. If you can't find pre-sliced round steak, ask the butcher to slice it for you (after all, why do any more work than you need to?). Although this Crock Pot meal tastes every bit as delicious as an authentic Philly cheese steak, it is relatively low in fat (thanks to the reduced fat cheese) and high in vitamins (thanks to the peppers and onions). If you like, substitute red peppers for the green peppers. They are packed with vitamin C, as well.
- 2 large onions, sliced into strips
- 2 medium green peppers, sliced into thin strips
- 1 lb thinly-sliced round steak
- 1 garlic clove, finely-minced
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 cup low sodium beef broth
- 1 teaspoon freshly-ground pepper
- 4 hard rolls (submarine, kaiser or hoagie rolls)
- 1 cup shredded low-fat monterey jack cheese
- Place the sliced onions and green peppers in the bottom of the Crock Pot stoneware.
- Lay the round steak slices on top of the vegetables.
- Whisk together the minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth and pepper. Pour over steak slices. Cover. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or high 3 to 4 hours.
- Preheat the oven to broil.
- Slice the rolls, lengthwise, but not all the way through.
- Place steak, green peppers and onions on half of each roll. Top with 1/4 cup of shredded cheese. Broil two minutes or just until the cheese is melted and the roll is lightly toasted.
- Makes 4 servings.
Found this to be bland and tasteless it took me a while to get some good flavor out of it. Then at the end the finished product was still ho-humm.
this is keeper. I think next time I will use velvetta cheese to make it more like a philly cheesesteak.
