Get your Fresh Prince on with this incredible cheesesteak. To be honest, the vegan steak nearly didn’t make it into the sandwich - it was so tasty we were nomming it straight out of the pan!
This recipe makes enough cheesesteak for about 4 delicious sandwiches, but it will keep pretty well for a few days and is just as good when re-heated. Big Will himself would be proud.
This is a great choice if you're looking for a naughty weekend vegan recipe, or something a little special for lunch time.
