Youse are in for a real treat. Snack Jack makes a fantastic Vegan Philly Cheesesteak! This recipe took us about 15 minutes to make and less than 5 minutes to scarf down. We were blown away by the texture and flavor that we were able to achieve with only a few ingredients!
The cheesesteak, which originated in Philadelphia, was developed in the early 20th century "by combining frizzled beef, onions, and cheese in a small loaf of bread", according to a 1987 exhibition catalog published by the Library Company of Philadelphia and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Some variations include peppers, mushrooms, hot sauce, and/or ketchup. There is some debate over whether it should be topped with provolone or Whiz (That's Philly speak for Cheez Whiz!). What do you think?
Makes 2 portions
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (or other oil)
1/2 onion, sliced
1/2 Anaheim or green bell pepper, sliced
1 Medium Bag Cracked Pepper Snack Jack
1/2 cup water
2 amoroso or hoagie rolls
Heat a skillet to medium heat. Add oil, onions, and peppers. Cook until onions are translucent and beginning to brown.
Add Cracked Pepper Snack Jack and cook 2 more minutes.
Add water and cook until most of the water is absorbed. Cook until Snack Jack begins to brown.
Using a spatula, separate cheesesteak filling into two long, hoagie-size portions in the skillet.
Top each portion with two Daiya Provolone Style Slices. Cover until cheese is melted. The Snack Jack, onions, and peppers should be caramelized by now! If not, cook a couple of minutes more.
Scoop each portion into an amoroso or hoagie roll and serve.
