Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteaks
Admittedly, these aren't exactly Philly Cheesesteaks - I'm not sure those are actually, truly available outside of Philly. And, of course, then it depends on which kind of cheesesteak you prefer. But if you're like me and can't exactly drive to Philly any old time in order to get your cheesesteak fix, this is a great alternative - and one made easy by your slow cooker!
