Mouth Watering Plant Based Philly Cheese Steak

This hearty classic American style sandwich is great for BBQ's or an easy to eat weekend meal over a few beers. We've taken that classic, and made a plant based version. Maybe you're trying to do a meat-free month? maybe you only eat a plant based diet? maybe its meat free Monday or perhaps you've just realised you've had a bit too much meat this week, and want to cut down your carbon footprint.

Regardless of the reason, you'll be completely satisfied with this hearty moorish plant-style twist on an old classic.
