Savory Vegan Philly Cheesesteak

This recipe I mastered last year & its been one of my go to’s for when I want a quick filling dinner or lunch. Its so tasty you won’t even realize its vegan!

Before I started eating more plant-based, this was one of the sandwiches I enjoyed. Its always cool to veganize dishes that I used to eat. This recipe is great for people with medium to expert level cooking experience!

Serving Size

Makes up to 4 adult servings which equals to 4 sandwiches each. Double the recipe to increase the quantity.

Cook Time

Prep 15 minutes

Cook 30 minutes



1 can of jackfruit

1/4 cup of minced garlic

1/2 cup of sliced bell peppers ( choose whatever color you like)

1/2 cup sliced white onions

1/2 cup of soy sauce ( or use liquid amino’s to keep it soy-free)

1/4 cup of grape seed to oil (for sauté)

4-5 slices of American Style Vegan Cheese (I used the Daiya brand)

Hoagie Rolls/Sub Rolls ( I used Italian & Herb flavored ones)

1/2 tbs garlic powder

1/4 tbs sea salt

1/4 tbs black pepper

1/2 tbs oregano

1/4 onion salt

Skillet Pan works best (regular sauté pans can work as well)


1. Slice bell peppers & yellow onions & place in a bowl.

2. Open can of jackfruit & place in a bowl, then break it up with an fork until it looks like shredded meat.

3. Preheat Oven to 400 degrees.

4. Heat a skillet pan on medium high heat, add grape seed oil.

5. Sauté onions, peppers, garlic in a pan until soft.

6. Add jackfruit & sauté until it begins to brown then & liquid amino’s & stir well. The jackfruit will start to look like “steak”.

7. Next you will add all seasonings to the pan, garlic powder, salt, oregano, black pepper.

8. Take 4-5 slices of the vegan cheese & add it on top of the pan until it covers all the “steak”.

9. Heat a separate pan up & toast the hoagie rolls face down in a lil bit of oil about 1/4 cup. Once toasted set aside.

10. Take your philly cheesesteak & place in the oven for 6-7 minutes or until cheese is melted.

11. Once cheese is melted on the “steaks”, take it out oven.

12. Take the hoagie rolls & fill each one with the cheesesteak mixture.

13. Plate them up then eat & enjoy!
