Philly CheeseSteak Sandwiches

This sandwich was inspired by a few key events: 1) hunger, 2) BandMan's suggestion that we have sandwiches for lunch, and c) a dish I made a long time ago with dried enoki mushrooms that would take more time than I'd like to spend typing out the long explanation (not to mention, you'll probably get bored reading it; hell, you're probably bored now).

Just know that this is a crazy delicious sammich that deserves respect. Annnnnd a nice cold frothy beer served next to it.

Hoagie Rolls

cashew cream sauce
2 tsp stone ground mustard
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp vegan butter
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp almond milk
  1. Combine all ingredients into your blender and give 'em a whirl. 
  2. When you're ready to stuff your face, heat the cheese sauce on the stove.
olive oil
1 onion, sliced
2 oz of dried shiitake mushrooms

9 mini sweet peppers
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp montreal steak seasoning
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tbsp flour
1/4 vegetable bouillon 

1 tbsp soy sauce
  1. Soak the dried mushrooms in warm water for about 30 minutes. Drain but make sure to save 1/4 cup of the mushroom water for later. Slice the mushrooms and set aside.
  2. Heat some oil up at mid-high heat and add the sliced onions. Cook them until they start to brown up. 
  3. Add mushrooms, peppers, oregano, steak seasoning, liquid smoke, salt and pepper; cook for about 10 minutes. 
  4. Bring the heat down to low and coat the veggies with the flour. Combine the 1/4 of a block of bouillon with 1/4 cup of the reserved mushroom to make a broth. Stir in broth and soy sauce; bring to a simmer. Let that happen on low until you've heated the cheese sauce and prepared your hoagie rolls. I split the hoagie rolls in half and grilled on the stove top with olive oil.
  5. Spread the cheese sauce on the rolls and sammich in the steak filling. 
  6. OMG.


  1. This looks fabulous, but for the cashew cream sauce don't you need cashews? If so how much? is this recipe enough for two?

    1. Hey Amber (we have matching names)! Thanks for leaving that comment...I didn't realize that I FORGOT to link the cashew cream sauce to it's recipe. DOH! If you click it now, you'll find cashew cream sauce with actual cashews in it. :)


  2. Thank you Amber! I appreciate you replying back so quickly. I really enjoy your blog. I am going to try your cashew sauce tonight! Thanks. :)
