Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10-15 minutes
Serves: 4

Cheese steaks are a Philadelphia tradition. This delicious version is 100% guilt-free with Fable plant based beef and your choice of vegan cheese. All it needs is a cold beer on the side.


.4 long sandwich rolls, soft or chewy crust, hot dog rolls or turkish rolls work well, cut in half lengthwise and toasted on the inside


  • 3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 yellow or brown onion julienned
  • 200-250g white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper julienned
  • 250g Fable, chunks cut into halves or thirds
  • Salt and white pepper to taste

Sauces and toppings:

  • Vegenaise (or mayo if you prefer)
  • Cheese spread, this is not optional but vegan cheese spreads are not ubiquitous, so you may need to make your favorite one. If you’re looking for a vegan spread – check out our “not cho cheese” sauce in the Fable Nachos recipe.
  • Swiss cheese, or your favorite melty vegan version, again this is also not optional


  1. Heat a heavy skillet over high flame and add ½ the olive oil
  2. Saute onions, mushrooms and bell pepper until caramelized, about 5 minutes remove from pan
  3. Heat olive oil in skillet still on high flame
  4. Add Fable and saute while stirring for another 5 minutes, being sure to continuously scrape the bottom of the pan to catch the bits that stick
  5. When Fable is evenly caramelized return the onion and pepper back to the skillet, combining all and season to taste, turn off the flame
  6. Lay the melty swiss cheese or alternate over the surface, make sure covered completely
  7. While the cheese in the mix melts, add veganaise to one side of the toasted sandwich roll
  8. Add cheese spread to the other side of the toasted roll
  9. Add the filling to the rolls, cut in half and enjoy
