I just love Philly-style cheesesteak, but I don’t love the price of steak these days. Of course it’s not the same, but you can get some tasty results with a beef chuck roast in your slow cooker. Using purchased slider buns, this recipe is an easy answer to the age-old question: “What’s for dinner tonight?”
- 1 (2 1/2 pound) boneless beef chuck roast
- 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
- 1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
- 2 teaspoons cooking oil
- 1 (14 ounce) can beef consomme, undiluted
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, or to taste
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, or more as needed
- ½ (15 ounce) package slider-sized burger buns
- 8 slices Provolone cheese, halved
- 1 Season each side of the chuck roast with 1 teaspoon seasoning salt.
- 2 Set slow cooker on Low and spread out onion slices in a single layer on the bottom of the pot. Reserve a few slices for the top of the roast.
- 3 Heat cooking oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers. Brown seasoned roast in the hot oil, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place on top of the onion slices, and pour undiluted consomme and Worcestershire sauce over the top. Cover with reserved onion slices.
- 4 Cover and cook on Low until the beef is very tender, 8 to 10 hours.
- 5 Remove beef from the slow cooker and place on a cutting board. Using two forks, shred the meat and discard fat and membranes. Return shredded meat to the slow cooker and keep warm.
- 6 Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Open buns and place in the skillet, cut sides down. Toast for 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat for remaining buns, adding additional butter, if desired.
- 7 Place a piece of cheese on each bun half. Add 1/3 cup shredded beef, squeezing out most of the liquid, and cooked onions, as desired. Cover with the top buns. Serve warm.
