Vegan butcher. They're going to have to use military intelligence to find government service and in the midst of that thunderous silence type up a business plan with Microsoft Works.

She is writing a book about "The Settlement Cookbook," a Jewish cookbook published in 1901 that was intended to teach young Jewish women who had recently immigrated to the United States how to run a household.

Huh. My mom had that cookbook, and I never read the preface, so I had no idea. I figured it was called that because of old timey New England colonial recipes or some such.

Given the outrageous prices and substandard quality of most kosher meat I expect they will be very successful.

I had a pretty good vegetarian cheesesteak (portobellos) at a place near us. At least I think it was vegetarian and not vegan since the cheese was pretty spot on.

No, he's definitely *not* a Philly cheesesteak loving vegan because those two words don't belong in the same sentence.

(cheesesteak and vegan for the willfully obtuse among us)

You know what makes a cheese steak sandwich? Cheese and steak. It's right there in the title.

You had a mushroom sandwich with cheese.

all i can say is their customers better LOVE them some spiced and salted vital wheat gluten (but not actual seitan) and cashew "cheeze".

I'm just yanking your chain. I LOVE portabella mushrooms. Have thought about making a portabella sandwich, just to try. Every thing I have read about them is that they are really good. Just not sure if it would fill me up. But I guess I will never know if I don't try.

actually, if the menu just said that, with no ingredients listed, i'd be as likely to think it was a normal meat-and-dairy-eater cheesesteak that was topped with sauteed onions, peppers, and mushrooms (portobello mushrooms to be precise) as to think it was a steak-free "cheesesteak"

No, we finish this to the death.

But seriously, they can be pretty filling when served as the main portion of a dish rather than a side or simply an ingredient.

I love mushrooms, but unfortunately don't get to cook with them often because the wife doesn't care for them. Which is slightly annoying because we live in the "mushroom capital of the world." Oh well.

I've made portabello burgers.  Marinate the big burger sized ones in some kind of soy/balsamic mix (your flavors may vary, but not that long.  Roast them in the oven with the underside up and filled with a cheese (or cheese blend) of your choice.   Till done and then make all the burger fixin's  as usual.   It really is quite good.

Maybe, but a mushroom cheesesteak is pretty much universally referred to as such. When you start specifically throwing the portobello label in there it's usually understood that the mushroom is taking the place of the meat. For example, a portobello burger isn't confused as a beef burger with portobello mushrooms on top.

a sammy with thick grilled portobello strips, grilled onions, roasted red peppers (and maybe some grilled zucchs or eggplant slices, but they are not necessary) melted mozz (or fresh creamy mild goat cheese), and a drizzle of rosemary oil and balsamic glaze, plated up on garlic bread (or toasted rosemary focaccia), is WAY BETTER than 9/10 meat-based sammys i've ever had. and i'm a firm omnivore.

and it's an easy sandwich to make at home if you just grill up some seasonal veg until the edges caramelize.

try it! you'll like it!

You don't use the word steak and then replace the beef with mushroom unless you want to endlessly have customers return the food.

Guess I am fortunate as my wife loves them as well. My favorite cheese steak place as a portabella cheese steak. I have thought about trying it, but knowing how much I like the regular one I get, I haven't done it yet. Tempted though.

Kennett Square, PA.

I believe it's kind of a self-proclaimed designation, but they seriously lean into it. An unfortunate byproduct is the morning smell of the nearby mushroom farms on a hot summer day.

But in the case of "portobello" it's generally assumed that's what it is.

Portobello burgers and portobello steaks don't contain beef. Same with the less common portobello cheesesteak.

Granted, most menus will have a brief description under the title to alleviate any doubt. But by and large if something is called "portobello" something then the portobello(s) are the main ingredient.

Wife is actually in Morgan Hill as we speak visiting family. I am very familiar with the "aroma" you refer to as I have been to Morgan Hill numerous repeatedly, apparently always at just the right time.

I guess it is no different that growing up in Amarillo TX and driving thru Hereford where the cattle lots are. Or when the blew sent the smell to Amarillo.

Here's the link saying Morgan Hill is/was the mushroom capital. I'm going to go with Kennett Square being the crown holder on this.

Use them in chili as well. Meat tends to completely fall apart (not in a bad way) after cooking over a campfire all day, where as some mushrooms really adds some nice "meaty" texture to bite into and really takes on a great flavor after cooking all day in the chili

a sammy with thick grilled portobello strips, grilled onions, roasted red peppers (and maybe some grilled zucchs or eggplant slices, but they are not necessary) melted mozz (or fresh creamy mild goat cheese), and a drizzle of rosemary oil and balsamic glaze, plated up on garlic bread (or toasted rosemary focaccia), is WAY BETTER than 9/10 meat-based sammys i've ever had. and i'm a firm omnivore.

and it's an easy sandwich to make at home if you just grill up some seasonal veg until the edges caramelize.

try it! you'll like it!


and if you're afraid it won't be "filling" just use thick slices of fresh mozz (room temp) for the cheese, add a thick slice of sweet juicy garden tomato (or oven roasted cherry tomatoes if you can't get real garden ones), and a bit of julienned fresh basil on top of the grilled veg when you build the sandwich.

and put it on the oil-rich rosemary focaccia, or some garlic-butter kissed french bread or sourdough.

i just ate a big bowl of lemon garlic chicken breast and seared scallops, with broiled zucchini and onions, served over mixed white and wild rice pilaf with more garlic, i am STUFFED. and yet i'm craving this sandwich now!

none of those words make sense, Subs. NONE OF THEM!

Dr. Nick Riviera: Man, remember in the early 2010s when our biggest worry was Portland-style hipsters opening quirky vegan-only coffee shops with ironic names that catered exclusively to people with handlebar mustaches?  That feels like decades ago.


I guess at least we showed those bastidges?

well, not the stoned "lifeguard" who scolded me in Ocean City NJ last week as I stood up from the surf having been knocked 1.5" past the green flag - that dude had a 6-8" bleach blonde mustache if it was a day.

Yeah, in the style of a cheesesteak. Hence the name vegetarian cheesesteak. This isn't farking complicated.

Kind of like when when I make a bacon and egg sandwich using tofu and strips of seaweed?

No, not like that at all. But of course you know that.

No, we finish this to the death.

But seriously, they can be pretty filling when served as the main portion of a dish rather than a side or simply an ingredient.

I love mushrooms, but unfortunately don't get to cook with them often because the wife doesn't care for them. Which is slightly annoying because we live in the "mushroom capital of the world." Oh well.

Guess I am fortunate as my wife loves them as well. My favorite cheese steak place as a portabella cheese steak. I have thought about trying it, but knowing how much I like the regular one I get, I haven't done it yet. Tempted though.

You bring out an interesting point. Without Googling, what is the mushroom capital? My wife said it was in California, I thought it was in a Northern state. We looked it up then but I forget what the correct answer was. Of course I will look after posting this.

Kennett Square, PA.

I believe it's kind of a self-proclaimed designation, but they seriously lean into ...

Wife is actually in Morgan Hill as we speak visiting family. I am very familiar with the "aroma" you refer to as I have been to Morgan Hill numerous repeatedly, apparently always at just the right time.

I guess it is no different that growing up in Amarillo TX and driving thru Hereford where the cattle lots are. Or when the blew sent the smell to Amarillo.

Here's the link saying Morgan Hill is/was the mushroom capital. I'm going to go with Kennett Square being the crown holder on this.

Looks like we're ripe for a east coast, west coast mushroom war.

I know this isn't sammich-related, BUT I've had great success with stuffed portabellas.  Clean them up, remove stem, cook for a bit on an oiled baking sheet.  Then put yummies in there:

- Thick meaty bolognese-y thing with white cheese on top.
- Spinach and artichoke and cream stuff.
- Italian sausage and mushroom.

All my variations have been Italian-ey, but now I'm dreaming about thin-sliced beef and cheese.  Maybe some peppers.  Like if cheesesteak could live in a big mushroom.

i just ate a big bowl of lemon garlic ...


I've been meaning to learn focaccia.  I'm OK at making flatbreads, and I've gotten better at the boule but... I never actually want a slice of bread.  I think maybe focaccia would be a happy medium for me.

So they sell packages of air?
