I wonder how many others have a weakness for the flavor of a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. Recently I was asked to find a good vegan cheesesteak alternative for a friend of mine. After a few days I found this amazing vegan recipe.
First let me tell you that it’s impossible to exactly duplicate the flavor and texture of a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich and keep it vegan. It just isn’t going to happen. Vegan food will never be like meat. But this vegan sandwich is meaty, cheesy, and delicious. This may be the vegan cheesesteak holy grail.
I’m not sure if it’s the way the ‘meat’ is prepared with just the right spices and flavoring, or if it’s the vegan cheese recipe. But when you combine them them result really is incredible. You can tell a lot of work went into making this plant based vegan masterpiece.
Actually I have to say the cheese sauce may be the most brilliant part of this sandwich. Forget vegan cheese you buy in the store. This stuff is really cheesy. In fact the creator of this recipe calls it orange and squirty, just like the authentic cheese sauce you would find in Philly.
