Egg white Philly cheese steak recipe – An epic high protein dairy free omelette with thinly sliced seasoned beef, sauteed onions topped with vegan cheese.
I remember some years ago when myself and co went to the United States for the very first time. I was in my teenage years for my very first stateside trip and trust me it was an unforgettable experience. The food, the culture and overall lifestyle was a complete contrast to life in the UK.
It was almost as if America was 10 times a head of the UK in terms of food and drink. One thing that stood out while I was on vacation was the portion sizes in the restaurants – they were humongous plus they had a system of constant buffet style eating (something that is not as popular on a grand scale over here).

Although I have never been to Philadelphia, I do vividly recall going to a food joint in Florida and ordering a Philly cheese steak.
It was the name more than anything which I found appealing, nevertheless I devoured the entire thing and would gladly eat seconds.

Homemade steak seasoning for the beef – I took the liberty of making a homemade steak seasoning rather then sandwiching bland meat into the omelette and I promise you will LOVE the flavour which impart from this omelette.
