KOSHER Philly Cheesesteaks!

Morningstar Farms, I love you. I bow to your greatness! Long live the Morningstar greatness! For those curious why I’m preaching the greatness of Morningstar Farms, they just came out with a new KOSHER product: Morningstar Farms® Meal Starters™ Steak Strips. These strips work great in stir fry, but they also work great in ANOTHER delight… I was challenged to figure out a kosher Philly Cheesesteak… And I’ve DONE IT! I was testing out soy cheeses, but this works SO much better.

Completly vegan and Kosher Parve, these steak strips are WONDERFUL to cook with. Great in stir fry, ‘beef’ stew, and the like, I adore these delights. But, the true test is in Philly Cheesesteaks. Here’s what you need:

KOSHER Philly Cheesesteaks

1 bag of Morningstar Farms® Meal Starters™ Steak Strips
1/2 whole onion, sliced and split into halves
1/2 whole green pepper, sliced and split into halves
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 package of kosher sliced provalone cheese
4 itallian rolls split open

Preheat your griddle, keeping a wide spatula on hand for cooking the sandwitches.

Opening the bag of steak strips, pout out onto the griddle and start cooking, tossing with the spatula until coooked thru (These cook FAST, which means about 2-3 minutes, or up to 5 if frozen before cooking).

When strips are done cooking, take your onion and green pepper strips and mushrooms before tossing them in with the steak strips, grilling them all together as you grab the buns. Once again, this should only take 2-3 minutes.

Lightly buttering the insides of the buns (Or use olive oil if you wish), place them FACE DOWN for about a minute on the grill as the meat and veggies finish cooking.

As the buns toast, split the cooking meat and veggies into four piles. Cover each pile of meat and veggie goodness with two slices f Provalone cheese to melt it slightly.

Taking each bun, hold it open as you scoop each pile of meat, cheese, and veggies into the open bun before closing. Should make 4 rather full sandwiches.

This is a VERY messy yet tasty dish. THIS is the kind of projects i was hoping to accomplish when starting this blog, and I’m glad to have tackled this challenge. Now, true, some kosher keepers will not want to use this recipe. Dispite the fact it’s vegatables and dairy, the fact that it’s still a veggie option to meat will shy some away. But, I figure myself that if it’s kosher, it’s not breaking the core rules, and it’s good… I’ll cook and eat it! So, this is Renegade Kosher signing off this special article to cheer I DID IT! Shalom, and good eating!
