Philly Cheesesteak Soup

Philly Cheesesteak Soup


1 ½ – 2 lbs beef outside round (sliced as thin as possible)

½ cup butter (unsalted)

2 garlic cloves (minced)

1 large onion (chopped into various sizes)

1 medium green pepper (chopped into various sizes)

6 large mushrooms (sliced)

3 cups 10% cream

2 cups beef broth

3 dashes worcestershire sauce

2 ½ cups provolone cheese (shredded)

1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1 tbsp fresh black pepper

1 tsp sea salt


Take your very thinly sliced beef, and cut or tear into various sized pieces.

In a large pot, on medium-high heat; melt 1/4 cup of  butter. Add beef and fast fry.

* Do not over cook the meat, as it will continue to cook, as soup is being made.

Remove beef from pot, and set aside.


Add the rest of the butter, to the juices in the pot. Add onion, green pepper,

garlic, salt and pepper. Stirring frequently, cook vegetables, until softened.

Add mushrooms, in the last minute or so and cook with vegetables.

When vegetables have softened, sprinkle Parmesan cheese over vegetables,

mix to evenly coat vegetables with the Parmesan.


Lower heat to medium. Add beef broth and worcestershire sauce.

Simmer for 5 minutes.

Add cream, mix well. Simmer for another 2 minutes.

Add meat back into the pot.

Add both the provolone and cheddar cheese, stir thoroughly.

Simmer for another 3-5 minutes and serve with a pinch of fresh pepper on top!


The great taste of a Philly Cheesesteak, but in a soup! I always serve this with

a nice crusty roll or bread (have extra bread or rolls on hand, because this

is a great ‘dipping’ soup).


* This makes about 6-8 large servings.

  6. So not a cook…can I use a rarer deli roast beef? Raw or cooked meat, if not recommended?

  7. Yep Monica a more rare cut of deli roast beef is fine. With this recipe I would definetly stay with cooked meat… but as I said; a little on the pink side is okay!

  10. How long do you cook the meat? And do you suggest a specific type or cut? I don’t want to mess this up!

  12. Is 10% cream the same as heavy cream?

  14. How do the directions change with crock pot? When do I add 3 cups cream when cooking in crock pot?

  15. Hey guys, welcome back to ‘soup season 2015. I’ve made this soup twice. Both times, family size soup pots. Was thinking of treating friends at work with a roaster full. what happens if I quadruple, quadruple this recipe?

  16. The cream you will want to add near the end of the cooking time in the crock pot.

    Quadruple the recipe? That’s a lot of soup :)

  17. This is a staple in our house…I have been making it since it got posted a long time ago! It’s a hit with EVERYONE, even health nuts, despite the fat content! I am going to experiment and see if I can make it a little more health compliant, though. As for crockpot cooking, It really doesn’t take long in genheral, so I have never bothered. Made it last night for my parents and they raved. Used a top round roast, doubled it and it multiplies VERY well. IU would suggest more than doubling the veggies, though, since they kind of get lost when multiplying. All in all, though. One of my all time favorite recipes, though it has ruined my husband for the actual sandwich. He wants them to all taste like the soup and none do lololol

  18. Made this for the second time and each time I’ve had to add more salt. And I’m not sure why, but I have problems with the cheeses sticking to either the bottom of the pot or to the spoon, regardless of how often I stir. It definitely taste better after it sits overnight! Delicious! One of my favorite soups!!

  19. Glad you and your husband are happy with the soup! That’s the great thing about any recipe it is not set in stone and always allows the freedom to try and improve on it.

  20. Maybe try and add the cheese a little slower while stirring and see if you can get it to melt and blend in a little easier that way.
