Tips for Philly Cheesesteaks:

  • Melt the Cheese – You can put the sandwiches on a cookie sheet and place in the oven to let the cheese melt. Sometimes, I put an extra slice of cheese and it is so delicious all melted.
  • Onions and Mushrooms – Adding in onions and mushrooms adds flavor to the liquid and beef.
  • Brown the Beef – Some recipes call for browning the beef, it is not necessary but you can if you prefer.
  • Dip Sandwich – The liquid from cooking the ingredients is so good. It is great for dipping or spooning of your hoagies.
  • Butter the hoagies – For a crispy, hoagie butter them before placing the oven on a baking sheet. We love the crunch it gives.

Variations for Philly Cheesesteaks:

  • Change the meat – We used round steak, but you can also use beef chuck roast. Both meats come out tender and full of flavor.
  • Cheese Options – Traditional a philly cheesesteaks are served with provolone, Cheez Whiz or American cheese. You can also use Mozzarella or cheddar cheese.
  • Bun Options – We use hoagie buns, but you can easily use rolls or even just loaf bread. If you are looking for a low carb option, serve it without the sub.
  • Worcestershire Sauce – Add in Worcestershire sauce for an added smoky flavor.

  • Sweet Potato French Fries – Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries are so quick and easy to make. We love how amazing they taste.
  • Rice – Instead of hoagies, I like to add a side of white rice. It taste amazing when we drizzle some of the Philly Cheesesteak liquid.
  • Steam Broccoli – Steamed broccoli is a great side for just about anything. It is light and easy to make.
  • Potato Chips – Honestly, we have also served this with chips on really busy nights running from lots of activities.

    Can you cook on high for 3-4 hours and get the same results?

  3. Carrie says:

    Lori – I’m sorry about that. I cook this recipe on low for 6 hours. I have updated the recipe and the post. Thank you!

  4. Lori says:

    Is this cooked on high or low for 6 hours? The recipe just says to cook “only” for 6 hours.
