Slow Cooker Beef Sandwiches (Served up Philly Style…Of Course)

It’s almost unbelievable that summer has come and gone…

Once it starts to get cooler, I tend to use my slow cooker a lot to make soups and stews. 

I recently purchased London Broil cut of beef and was inspired by my favorite hometown sandwich, the Philly Cheesesteak. 

While London Broil is definitely not the kind of beef used for Philly Steaks, the end result tasted very similar.  We bought hoagie rolls (not as good as those in Philadelphia…but they did the job), added the beef and cheese…  It was a big hit. 

There are different toppings for Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches.  Half the family goes for ketchup and the other half prefers marinara sauce. 

Enjoy!
