I've been looking at this recipe on The Pioneer Woman's website for a long time, thinking that I'd really like to make it but never really making the commitment. I'm sorry I waited. Honestly, it's really good and really quick. Such simple ingredients combined to make a delicious lunch or dinner. As you can see, we added cheese to ours but it would be just as good plain. When I recently saw a re-run of The Pioneer Woman's show on the Food Network and as she was cooking it my mouth was just watering. It was at that moment my husband and I added it to our menu.
Ree dresses this sandwich up on her website while Marlboro Man keeps it simple but I could go either way. The juice drizzled over the top is key so don't skip that step. This sandwich reminds me of an Au Jus sandwich and a cheesesteak sort of all mixed up. You use cube steak which is a less expensive cut of meat, onions and rolls aren't expensive so you should really add this to your meal rotation.
Dinner in less than 20 minutes, you can't beat it!
Recipe from ThePioneerWoman
- 2-3 pounds cube steak
- 1 whole large or 2 small onions, sliced
- 2 sticks butter
- seasoned salt
- 1/2 cup (approximately) Worcestershire Sauce
- Tabasco sauce, to taste
- 4 French/deli rolls
- In a large skillet, add the sliced onion to 1/4 stick of butter and cook until translucent. Remove and set aside.
- Slice the cube steak and season with seasoned salt.
- Add another 2 Tbsp of butter over high heat until it's beginning to brown, then add the steak. Cook the steak in a single layer over medium high heat. Flip after about a minute.
- After the meat is browned on both sides, add the Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce and 2 Tbsp of butter. Add the cooked onions back in with the meat.
- Butter each of the rolls on the cut side and place them on a hot skillet until golden brown.
- Scoop enough meat to cover the bottom of one roll and then add some additional juice.
- Garnish as desired or just eat as is.
