One of my favorite cooking shows is The Pioneer Woman, on Food Network. Her recipes are easy, delicious, comfort food. I have made this recipe twice now, adapting it a little for our tastes. We both enjoyed it. My husband doesn’t like onions, so I substituted sautéed mushrooms instead.
The Marlboro Man Sandwich
source: adapted from Pioneer Woman
2-3 pounds cube steak
1 pound sliced white button mushrooms
4 French/deli rolls
2 sticks butter
Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Onion powder, salt and pepper
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
Saute the sliced mushrooms in 1/4 cup butter, seasoning to taste with salt, pepper, and onion powder. Remove from skillet and set aside.
Slice cube steak into 1/2 inch strips, slicing against the grain. Season with Lawry’s.
In the same skillet, heat 2 tbsp. of butter over high heat until melted and beginning to brown. Add the cube steak in a single layer. Cook until one side is brown, then flip and cook until brown.
Now add 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce and 5-6 shakes of Tabasco. Now add another 2 tbsp. of butter. Add the cooked mushrooms, stir to combine.
Halve and butter the French rolls and brown them on a separate skillet.
To assemble, lay the bottom half of a french roll on a plate. Place the meat mixture, followed by a spoonful of juice from the pan. Top with cheese and top of roll.
