Vegan “Cheesesteak”

April 9, 2009

Containing neither cheese nor steak, but just as delicious.

I normally just caramelize onions, peppers and some thinly-sliced zucchini, season it up with A-1 and I’m good to go. But the Morningstar Meal Starter Steak Strips caught my eye as I was shopping and I thought I’d throw them in. If you’ve never tried these, they are pretty tasty – and super easy. They are actually made by a company called Gardein and sold under the Morningstar brand – likely why they don’t contain eggs (zing!). And yes, I know they are attempting to phase out eggs from most, if not all of their products, but why were they there in the first place?

Onions and Peppers - Before

I bought the zucchini anyway and plan to use it up soon (they looked really good), but skipped adding it and we didn’t need it – it was filling enough and I wasn’t even able to use all my onions and peppers. The key to a good vegan cheesesteak? A-1 and a toasted bun. In this case, I didn’t bake my own – lack of time, but I did use up a french baguette I had stashed in the freezer, so kudos for that.
