The other night I decided to make philly cheese steak sandwiches with homemade fries. I started off by making homemade whole wheat bread…this is pretty basic with water, yeast, salt, and flour.

While the bread was rising, I started off by marinating the “steak” for the sandwiches. Obviously, I was not going to use real steak for these sandwiches, so decided to use seitan which I think absorbs sauces and marinades really well. I added worcestershire sauce, oregano, salt, pepper, and a little soy sauce to the thinly sliced seitan.

While the bread was baking, I started preparing the potatoes for the baked fries. I sliced potatoes thinly, mixed them in some olive oil, sea salt, and freshly-ground pepper, and then put them in the oven to get all crispy.

Next, I started preparing the onions and peppers. I thinly sliced an onion and red pepper and then sauted them in olive oil and oregano.

Once the onions and peppers were soft and flavorful, I added the marinated seitan to the pan to cook.

By now the fries were also done baking. I sliced the bread in half and topped it with the seitan/onion/pepper mixture. Jon’s sandwich got a piece of vegan cheese on top and went into the oven to try to melt (the cheese was not very successful at melting!). Served with the crispy homemade fries, the sandwiches made a delicious (but somewhat messy) dinner!
