No, no, no, no. If you’re going to make a meatless cheesesteak do not use a heaping of fungus. Start with Seitan and work your way from there. I approve of your use of provolone but I do not approve of it encasing your protein and veggies like some sort of dairy blanket. Mix it around while it’s still melty.

Correct, this is not a typical cheesesteak. It’s using the absolutely wrong cheese (don’t get me wrong, I love cheddar but it doesn’t belong on a cheesesteak) and bread? French baguette? WHY?!

Also, lettuce, tomato and mayo make it closer to a “cheesesteak hoagie” (a topic I often avoid talking about because it blows non-Philadelphians minds.

And although accepted here in Philly in most places… I hate mushrooms. That’s a personal note though.

So… the only thing that makes this remotely related to an actual cheesesteak is that they’re both using beef?

pcsd-c:

Before: Lett, toms, and mayo- not typical of PCS

After: I can dig it.

I wouldn’t say subs so much as feeble attempts as cheesesteaks. Top: get that fungi out of my steak, I know it’s optional to some folks here in Philly, but it’s a never for me. Not to mention it’s using red onions which is a no-no and a copious amount of peppers, no. Bottom left: those veggies need to be chopped. The bread is all wrong. Bottom right: this one looks passable but there’s something wrong with the bread and the onions also could afford to be chopped.

I’ll never understand why big companies want to drag my hometown’s name through the mud. If this is a cheesesteak, where’s the cheese… or the steak? This looks like a mushpeppernion sandwich.

It was satisfying. It was also a good day because I hit the 1000 jackpot on the spin a wheel I won the bonus 5 times on my favorite fruit game.And with all the tickets I saved up, I managed to get the pokemon black version for the DS. I’ve been continuing my quest on being a pokemon master ever since. B]

What achievement would that be? Eating some sort of super long sandwich that has meat in it that looks like pastrami? This is not a cheesesteak. One obvious hint: what’s the knife and fork for? You don’t eat cheesesteaks with those.

I heard that Californians were disgracing our sandwich by putting avocado on it. This is the first that I’ve seen. I guess it’s really easy to mess up a sandwich that should really include only 3 ingredients, tops. THE INGREDIENTS ARE IN THE NAME OF THE SANDWICH.
Cheesesteak: what do you think should go in it? This isn’t a Cheesemushroombaconcadosteak! This is like messing up peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Do you damned hippies put avocado in those too? Probably.
