No matter where you live in America, you now can enjoy an authentic Philadelphia cheesesteak—with an unorthodox twist. Questlove's Cheesesteak, made with Impossible Meat, is officially shipping nationwide on Goldbelly. It is the first product on the site that is made with plant-based Impossible Meat 2.0, a blend of soy and potato proteins.

The Roots musician launched the vegetarian cheesesteak in 2019, quickly garnering a cult-like following. The sandwich used to only be sold at the Phillies stadium Citizen Bank Park and select Live Nation venues. As live events are on hold for the foreseeable future, the move to ship the cheesesteaks nationally comes as excellent news for Philadelphia sandwich enthusiasts such as myself.

In addition to Impossible Meat, the sandwich is also filled with a melted cheese blend, banana peppers, pickles, and onions. Crucially, it's served on a roll from the beloved Philadelphia bakery Amoroso’s.

Through the end of the year, a portion of proceeds from cheesesteak orders will go toward America’s Food Fund, an organization working to fight food insecurity. 

"As a huge fan of Impossible Foods, and a strong believer in the future of plant-based alternative meats, it’s my hope that people everywhere get to enjoy a classic Philly cheesesteak that’s not only delicious, but better for them and better for the planet,” said Questlove in a statement.

Questlove's Cheesesteaks are available in four packs ($99), eight packs ($169), and twelve packs ($219.) You can buy them here.
