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.

"This was incredible!! I feel like I consumed something I should feel guilty for...but no! It's healthy! AMAZING SANDWICH! My husband said it was better than the meaty philly! :) A++! "

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.


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.
