The "steak" part of the cheesesteak was Seitan (which sounds uncomfortably much like "satan" when I say it, for some reason), browned on a skillet with some worstershire sauce.
Veggie-Friendly Philly Cheese "Steak"
- 1 package Seitan "wheat meat" (cubes or strips)
- Vegetable Oil
- Worstershire Sauce (a few tablespoons, to taste)
- One Green Pepper, Sliced
- 1/2 Medium Yellow or White Onion, Chopped
- 1 1/2 Cup Sliced Baby Portobello Mushrooms
- 1 Clove Garlic
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
- Hoagie Buns
- Provolone Cheese
Heat vegetable oil in two separate skillets. Cook Seitan in one skillet until browned, adding Worstershire to taste. Cook peppers, onion, garlic, & mushrooms until tender in the other skillet. Once both skillets are cooked completely, spoon vegetable mixture onto bottom half of hoagie. Place a slice of provolone cheese on top of Seitan & cover skillet until cheese has melted. Spoon seitan/cheese mixture on veggie mixture & top with the other 1/2 of the hoagie. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve while melty!

|Oh gosh, yum.|
We cooked up some creamed greens and french fries to enjoy with our sandwiches. It was a seriously wonderful dinner. Mmmm! And while Nathan spent the rest of the evening doing homework, I admired our Christmas tree & ate peppermint ice cream.
