Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes, with peppers, onions & seasoned ground beef in the slow cooker

Ok, I literally could’ve eaten the whole entire pot of this… absolutely delicious!

Let me start by saying, I’ve never been to Philly and I know these aren’t “authentic”.  But I am telling you they are darn DELICIOUS!

I had to make that statement that because people are really passionate about cheesesteak.  I’ve had cheesesteak in the mall (at a place called Philly Cheesesteak) and it had peppers on it.  Arby’s sells a “Philly Beef ‘n Swiss” which I love… it has peppers on it.  Some people say “real” cheesesteak doesn’t have peppers on it, others think it does.. but this recipe definitely has peppers and I hope you love it as much as I do.

We served this on rolls, but I’ve also tossed it with egg noodles in the past because there is a little bit of sauce in the bottom.  Either way, it’s super easy and tastes amazing!  Enjoy!

  1. Every one is different but my son and I didn’t care for it. It was soupy and I added corn starch to thicken it up. We ate it but like I told him I wish we would of just grilled out hamburgers and put the onion and mushrooms on top. I wouldn’t make this again. Like I said every one’s taste are different and while some people may like something others may not. We didn’t care for it but it doesn’t mean you won’t. I am looking forward to trying some of her other recipes.1 star

  2. I have been making your recipes for quite some time now (your Facebook page is my “go-to” for new recipes to try. I haven’t left any ratings yet, but I made the cheesesteak slow cooker sloppy joes yesterday and they were SO GOOD. So easy to make and the flavor is amazing with the onion soup. I will make this again for football game days!5 stars

  3. I added a 1/2 cup of beef broth also. then I thickened it with a corn starch slurry and served it over French fries………….there was nothing left in the crock and there was only 3 of us!!!!!,,,,,lol……By the way, I make your recipes all the time and I want to say “Thank you!”. When I’m not sure what to make for any meal, I just go to “Spend With Pennies”.

    1. Over french fries… that’s amazing!! Thanks for sharing your tip, the extra sauce would be perfect over fries! And thank you so much for your kind words Mike, you made my night! :)

  4. This was a huge hit last night for dinner. It was a little bland and a lot juicy for me so next time I will use the dry dry onion soup mix instead of the condensed. I don’t think I’ll add any water and see how that goes. My family devoured it…zero leftovers! And everyone asked for the recipe.
