The Philly Cabbage Steak Puts a Healthy-ish Spin on the Classic Philly Cheesesteak

BBQTricks is showing us you don't need meat to make a damn good Philly cheesesteak. Instead, grill up this cabbage steak that's marinated in a soy sauce and liquid smoke mixture, then basted with some amped up buffalo sauce. Add on some grilled onions and peppers, top it all off with Cheez Whiz, and put it on an Italian roll for an unexpected spin on a Philly cheesesteak.
