I’m probably going to receive a lot of hate mail for posting this! Most Philly Cheesesteak lovers are die-hard fans of the real deal and are not willing to change it up or accept an alternative option. And, I would have to say that I agree with them! Have you ever eaten a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich? I have and they’re delicious! But, when you just cannot cook steak at home and serve it to your vegetarian significant other, you have to find other means of enjoying the foods you love to eat. Hence, the vegetarian version of the classically delicious cheesesteak sandwich!

Veg-Friendly: Philly Sautéed Mushroom Cheesesteak Sandwich

Recipe Category: Sandwich
Recipe Cuisine: American

Dear Reader, I am not a vegetarian, and I do get to have a steak every two to three months, so trust me when I tell you that mushrooms – if sautéed properly and seasoned just right – can most definitely be a wonderful substitute for steak. Load that ‘steak’ up with finely sliced green peppers and onions, add a few other ingredients and then top it all off with loads of melted cheese atop a toasted bun, then you’ve got something to be lip-smackin’ proud of!

Ingredients :
  • Philly Mushroom Melt
  • ½lb cremini mushrooms, halved
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 buns
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 2 tbsp steak sauce

1. Create skewers by alternating mushrooms, green bell pepper and red onion.

2. Drizzle with olive oil and season with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

3. Grill over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes per side.

4. On a bun, layer provolone cheese, cooked mushrooms, pepper and onions and steak sauce.

5. Wrap sandwich in foil and return it to the grill for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.

6. Enjoy!
