Yeah, I know I'm supposed to be eating more vegetables, but this was pretty awesome. Why make vegan stuff that resembles greasy meat and cheesy stuff? Because it tastes good, that's why.
Vegan Cheese Steak
1 tsp canola oil
2 TBS slices onion
1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning (or combo of oregano and powdered garlic)
1 setian steak sliced into bite sized pieces
4 really thin wide slices of Follow Your Heart Cheddar soy cheese
1 sub roll (check the labels to find one without dairy)
Optional ingredients: mushrooms, sweet peppers, hot peppers
Optional condiments: Ketchup, Veganaise, pickles, relish
Saute onion (and optional mushrooms peppers) in oil and sprinkle with seasoning. When onions are almost browned add seitan steak pieces and saute until warmed and browned. Pile up the mixture into a line in the middle of the pan the shape of the sub roll. Top the pile with 2 pieces of soy cheese and let melt. Put optional condiments on the roll and then cover then cheese steak pile in the pan with the roll.
Now to get it out of the pan, I put a piece of deli paper (parchment, wax paper, foil, paper towel, or nothing) over the roll and hold the roll part in one hand and flip the pan over with the other. You could also scoop the whole thing out of the pan with a long spatula, but where's the fun in that?
Now you don't need more cheese on top, but you can top it with the remaining two slices of cheese and pop it in the broiler for a minute (this is where that foil comes in handy.) The cheese gets melty and the roll gets a little crispy.
