This gloriously sloppy sub is the creation of Pinky Cole, founder of the popular Atlanta-based Slutty Vegan, and Derrick Hayes, Philly native and founder of Big Dave's Cheesesteaks. In Cole's Dinkies Cheezesteak, a plant-based version of Hayes' meat-packed hoagie, plant-based meat gets piled into toasted rolls with tender peppers, onions, and gooey pools of vegan cheese. Slutty Vegan's signature seasoning blend is available online, or substitute regular seasoned salt.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Using your hands, mix plant-based meat and seasoning blend in a medium bowl until well combined. Set aside.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add bell pepper, onion, and plant-based meat mixture; cook, stirring often to break mixture into small pieces, until bell pepper and onion are tender, plant-based meat is browned, and no liquid remains in skillet, 12 to 16 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low. Spread mixture in an even layer in skillet, and top evenly with vegan cheese slices. Drizzle 1 tablespoon water around edge of skillet. Cover and cook until cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise over cut sides of each sub roll. Fill rolls evenly with plant-based meat mixture. Serve immediately. 


Slut Dust seasoning blend is available online at sluttyvegan.shop.
