PHILADLEPHIA (WPVI) -- What's more Philly than eating a cheesesteak during a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park? Eating a cheesesteak created by Questlove!

The drummer of the world famous band The Roots has launched "Questlove's Cheesesteaks."

These cheesesteaks, however, are not the typical ones you find in South Philly.

Questlove's Cheesesteaks coming to Citizens Bank Park for Phillies home games.



"Questlove's Cheesesteaks" are made with the help of Impossible Foods, the company behind the plant-based Impossible Burgers.

"As a non vegan/vegetarian I still fell in love with @impossiblefoods for several years and as a Philadelphian....well--I gotta know #CheeseSteaks right?" Questlove said in his social media announcement Tuesday morning.

"We developed (and perfected!) a recipe using Impossible plant-based meat that we hope will offer a delicious and sustainable alternative for all cheesesteak eaters."

Impossible Foods was founded in 2011.
"Our goal is to eliminate the need to use animals to make food. Instead, we make meat, dairy and fish directly from plants," their website said.

"Questlove's Cheesesteaks" will be available at Citizens Bank Park during all Phillies home games, starting March 28. They will also be on sale during concerts at the ballpark, including Billy Joel and The Who in May.

"And more soon!" he said.
