Description

Marlboro Man loves this sandwich. It uses very simple ingredients and is so rich and satisfying, he’ll forego food for weeks (okay, hours) if he knows one is on the horizon. It’s meaty. It’s manly. It’s flavorful. And your man will grunt and daydream about Makita table saws and heavy machinery as he woofs it down.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Large (or 2 Small) Onions
  • 2 sticks Butter (lots And Lots Of Butter)
  • 2 pounds (to 3 Pounds) Cube Steak (tenderized Round Steak That's Been Extra Tenderized)
  • Lawry's Seasoned Salt (or Similar Seasoned Salt)
  • ½ cups (approximately) Worcestershire Sauce
  • Tabasco Sauce, To Taste
  • 4 whole French/deli Rolls (earthgrains Are Best!)

Preparation

Slice onions and cook in 1/4 stick butter until soft and light brown. Remove and set aside.

Slice cube steak against the grain. Season with Lawry’s.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter over high heat (in same skillet) until melted and beginning to brown. Add meat in single layer. Cook one side until brown, then flip and cook until brown, about a minute on both sides.

Add 1/2 cup (at least) Worcestershire sauce, 5 to 6 shakes Tabasco, and 2 tablespoons butter. Add cooked onions. Stir to combine.

Butter halved French rolls and brown in skillet.

To assemble, lay bottom half of French roll on plate. Place meat mixture, followed by a spoonful of juice from the pan. Top with other half of roll, cut in half, and devour!

All four of us really like this sandwich. Browning the rolls makes a big difference in how good it is. My 17 year old son, who is a cheese freak and rarely eats a sandwich without cheese, first mentioned it would need cheese. After his second sandwich, he decided it was fine just the way it was.

Someone mentioned it was too strong with the Worcestershire sauce. I didn’t measure how much I put in and just added until it smelled good but not overpowering. I know this can be adjusted.

Tried this just last night and my husband LOVED it! Definitely think adding some melted cheese would be wonderful.

I have made this recipe twice now and it will be a keeper. I think it came out better the second time. I will try bell peppers with the onions next time. Oh and I did cut down on the butter. That much butter scares me. LOL

I’ve used this recipe now a few times. Everyone loves it. It goes great with the corn pudding, a recipe I also got from the Pioneer Woman website.

Amazingly tasty. Not healthy, but certainly tasty!

I feel like I must be missing something here. Easy and quick to make but all I tasted was the overwhelming worcestershire flavor. It remains to be seen if the boyfriend will like it. Next time, I’ll replace most of the worcesterchire with beef stock and see if that’s more to my taste. Sorry Ree, this is the first recipe of yours that I don’t love.

This recipe was very easy to make and tasted delicious. I followed the recipe exactly as written. Now that I know what it tasts like, I will add to it the next time. My husband would like to have cheese on his.
