Steak Sandwich

I have been working away at my list of recipes that I want to try out of one of my favorite cookbooks. I haven't been buying new cookbooks because I know I have plenty of them and really need to put them to use before I add more to my shelf BUT I did break my promise and buy the second publishing of Ree Drummond AKA The Pioneer Woman. I really enjoy her cookbooks, not only are they filled with family friendly recipes but also with great pictures and stories.

I have to admit I have never used cube steaks before and can't say that I have ever eaten them either but they were called for in this recipe.  Another important thing to mention about this recipe is that it is not really a "diet" friendly recipe.....lots of butter is used..... BUT I will say it was SO worth the calories!! I thought about trying it with less butter but I don't think it would be the same without it and will not cut the butter out of it the next time I make it again. My suggestion try it and decide on your own if those calories are worth it or not ;-)

Steak Sandwich (Marlboro Man Sandwich)

1 whole onion, cut in half and then sliced
2 sticks butter
2-3 lbs cubed steak
Seasoned Salt (such as Lawry's)
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
hot sauce, to taste
4 deli rolls


Slice cube steaks against the grain into 1 inch strips, set aside.

Saute onion in 1/4 stick of butter until soft. Remove the onion and add 2 TBS of butter to hot skillet. Start browning steak in a single layer (you should only need to flip the steak strips once so only about a minute on each side, don't over cook them). Now add 1/2 cup worcestershire sauce, 5-6 dashes of hot sauce and yet again 2 TBS butter as well as the onion; stir to combine. Cover and turn off the heat.

Heat a skillet. Cut your deli rolls in half and butter them. Place into skillet to brown.

Now it is time to assemble your sandwich....don't forget to add some of the pan juices over the steak!! Cut sandwich in half and enjoy!!

**Provolone tastes great on this but is totally optional**
