My meat eating friends were tempted to turn vegetarian! We used swiss cheese and brushed the buns w/ EVOO and garlic powder before toasting them. We also added tomatoes and spinach and paired the sandwiches w/ baked sweet potato fries. Sooo good.
Portobello "Philly Cheese Steak" Sandwich
Cheese steaks are a Philadelphia tradition: thin slices from a rich and very fatty slab of beef, fried up and topped with a heavy cheese sauce. We've cut down on the fat considerably - but not on the taste. All it needs is a cold beer or a glass of pinot noir on the side. Make this vegetarian by using vegetable broth in place of chicken stock.

If you are going meatless, this is THE recipe for Philly Cheese Steak. My husband and I are trying to eat less meat, and this recipe was one of the best vegetarian recipes. It is very hearty and delicious.
Really hearty and filling - exactly what I look for in a vegetarian meal. I try to cook at least 1 to 2 vegetarian meals a week and this is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. Instead of the provolone I used 2% pepperjack cheese for a little kick. Served with oven roasted sweet potato and regular potato fries.
Easy to make and absolutely delicious! I made it with white rolls instead of wheat just because that is what I had to use up. Does NOT taste like it is healthy at all. Can't wait to make it again.
Really good! For 2 of us, I used 2 portabellos and added 1/2 a diced zucchini, and 3 or 4 "Peppadews," which are a new friend in my kitchen. I also added garlic and fresh herbs (basil, marjoram, thyme), and a Tbsp Worcestershire. I browned the insides of the rolls in a pan before adding the vege mixture. This is perfect for a weeknight dinner. I served it with a green salad.
