Dr Oz: Philly Cheese Steak Recipe

Dr Oz learned how to make a No-Meat Philly Cheese Steak Recipe with Kathy Freston.

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion (cut in half vertically and thinly slice)
1 sliced green pepper
1 sliced red pepper
2 garlic cloves garlic (minced or pressed)
1 (12 oz) package seitan (finely chopped)
1 tsp vegan Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp pepper (freshly ground)
4 slices vegan provolone cheese (you can also use vegan mozzarella), torn into strips
2 whole-wheat sandwich thins
1 C vegan marinara sauce (optional item)


1. In large skillet, heat 1 tsp olive oil (use medium heat.)
2. Sauté the onion and peppers for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Cover and reduce the heat to low for 5 minutes (onions should be soft)
4. Uncover and increase to medium-high heat.
5. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil, the garlic cloves, and chopped seitan. (Make sure all the water is pressed out of the seitan before cooking to keep oil from splattering.)
6. Pour the Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and pepper over the seitan (continue stirring.)
7. Cook for approximately 4 minutes (the seitan should start to turn golden.)
8. Lay the cheese on top of the seitan mixture and reduce the heat to low.
9. After cheese is melted, pile onto the sandwich thins
10. Top with marinara sauce (if desired.)

Kathy Freston’s Philly Cheesesteak Recipe

-Seitan is the meat alternative derived from the protein portion of wheat. You can find it in the grocery stores or go for something called Smart Strips. Check out Kathy’s book, “The Lean…” for this and other delicious recipes.

-Vegan cheese is not made with cow’s milk and melts wonderfully.

The 3 meat eaters tried the vegan Philly cheesesteak. They loved it!
