Yes, Pat’s Steaks is offering a vegetarian cheesesteak.

What is happening to the world? Pat’s King of Steaks, the originator of the cheesesteak is going to be slinging kelp and Muenster cheese!

Third generation owner Frank Olivieri is introducing a guest chef series and the first chef is health coach Sally Eisenberg. Eisenberg is creating pay-what-you-want vegetarian cheesesteaks today, Thursday, January 7th between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Eisenberg’s cheesesteak will include sautéed broccoli rabe, avocado, red onion, cilantro, mango, kelp granules, lime juice and Muenster cheese topped with a farm fresh egg, served on an Aversa’s Bakery roll.

Money raised during today’s cheesesteak event will be donated to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. Olivieri will match the donations with his own donation to the coalition. Eisenberg’s sister Clarabeth Grossman passed away in 2006 at the age of 55 from Ovarian cancer.

Olivieri recently graduated from the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill, came up with the idea in order to work the best chefs in and around Philadelphia. Oliveri notes, “as the gatekeeper for one of the most iconic sandwich brands in the world, I am proud to invite top chefs from around the region and beyond to work with me to raise awareness and funds for charities in need.”

UPDATE: Next up in Olivieri’s guest chef series will be Marc Vetri. We’re hearing mortadella will feature heavily in his cheesesteak.
