This keto Philly Cheesesteak Soup has all of the delicious flavors of a traditional philly cheesesteak sandwich, but in a warm and comforting soup variation.
This low carb and gluten free Philly Cheesesteak Soup recipe has all the delicious flavors of a classic cheesesteak sandwich, but in a hearty, comforting soup recipe. A traditional Philly cheesesteak sandwich has thinly sliced ribeye steak, grilled onions, and cheese sauce, served on a crusty roll. My mouth is watering just typing that. You will also commonly see American cheese, provolone cheese, or cheese whiz. There is a lot of debate about what makes up a true Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. I think the one thing we call all agree on is that it is delicious in all of it's different variations. Somewhere along the way, green peppers and mushrooms also became part of the mix. That is the version I am a big fan of.
For this Philly Cheesesteak soup recipe, I went super easy and used thinly sliced roast beef. GASP! I know! Cue the traditionalist heavy sighs and eye rolls... But that is the beauty of recipe creation, you can literally do anything you want.
- worcestershire sauce
- red bell pepper
- green bell pepper
- sea salt
- black pepper
- beef stock
- roast beef
- provolone cheese
- heavy cream
Converting to slow cooker
Converting this Philly Cheesesteak Soup recipe to slow cooker couldn't be any easier -- simply add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours. However, if you have time, I recommend sautéing the onions and garlic before hand as it adds an extra depth of flavor
Substitutions and Swaps
- Meat substitutions - Instead of thinly sliced roast beef, use ribeye, tenderloin, New York, or any cut of beef you prefer. This Philly Cheesesteak Soup recipe is also excellent with ground beef, ground turkey, or even with chicken
- Bell peppers - Not a fan of green bell peppers? Mix and match any color of bell peppers you prefer. I love red and yellow bell peppers for their subtle sweetness. Not a fan of peppers at all? Simply omit them altogether, or substitute them with your favorite veggie
- Dairy free - Need to make this recipe dairy free? Simply swap out the heavy cream for 1 ½ cups full-fat coconut milk and omit the provolone cheese.
