These Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches are great for busy weeknights.  We get it!  Kids in after school activities, homework, errands…your evenings are busy. Too busy to cook, really.  But instead of letting that stop you, you just pull this bag-o-goodness out of your freezer and stick it in the crockpot in the morning, before you lose control of your day.  Then it’s just a matter of finishing it off in the oven for a minute or two and your family has a delicious healthy meal, even when you’re busy.

    Recipe Notes

    Note, you can freeze the vegetables with the meat, if you want to eliminate a step later, but your veggies will be very tender (almost disintegrating) after freezing and cooking that long.  If you prefer your vegetables to be more in-tact, add them more toward the end of cooking.
