Vegetarian Cheesesteaks

This recipe for vegetarian cheesesteak sandwiches uses portobello mushrooms, peppers, and onions to pack in all the flavors of a cheesesteak without any meat.
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 35 mins
Yield: 4 sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 4 medium portobello mushrooms sliced thin (or 1 lb button mushrooms sliced)
  • 1 large green pepper sliced thin
  • 1 medium jalapeño sliced thin
  • 1/2 medium onion sliced thin
  • 5 large pepperoncini peppers sliced, juices saved and set aside
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flake (optional)
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 6-8" sandwich rolls

Instructions

Prepare Bread (Optional)

  • Heat an oven to 425℉.
  • Place the uncut sandwich rolls on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. When you tap on the crust and it seems crisp but fragile, remove from oven.

Cook Vegetable Filling

  • Squeeze the pepperoncini pepper juices into a small bowl. Slice the pepperoncini peppers into 1/4-inch rings and set aside.
  • Thinly slice the rest of the vegetables—the onion, green pepper, jalapeño, and mushrooms. Set aside.
  • Add oil to a large skillet and put over a medium heat.
  • Add the onions to the oil and fry until just the edges of the onions turn brown.
  • Add the bell peppers and jalapeño. Fry until all peppers begin to get soft.
  • Add the mushrooms, the pepperoncini pepper juice, garlic salt, oregano, black pepper, and red pepper flake.
  • Fry uncovered. Occasionally turn the vegetables until desired softness is reach. Remove from heat and mix in the sliced pepperoncini peppers.

Prepare Sandwiches

  • Slice the sandwich rolls and add a slice of provolone cheese to each roll. Add the pepper and mushroom mixture. Top with another slice of provolone cheese.
  • Place sandwiches under a broiler until provolone cheese is melted. If you do not have a broiler, you can also bake it at 425℉ for about 5 minutes to get the same result.
  • Serve hot.
