Monday's Meal - The Marlboro Man Sandwich

Monday, September 26, 2011

I was watching The Pioneer Woman on the Food Network a couple of weeks ago, and Gus happened to walk through the room as she was making her Marlboro Man Sandwich. Of course, he immediately started drooling & insisted that I make it for him. What is it with guys, butter, and a ton of meat sandwich?

I made it, he loved it. I tasted it - it was yummy - but because of all the butter, I didn't eat more than a bite. I took pictures, which I'll post, but they are nowhere near the quality of the pictures that Ree has posted on her website. So be sure to check out her pictures.

The Marlboro Man Sandwich
(see original recipe here)
  • 1 whole large (or 2 Small) onions
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 2 pounds (to 3 pounds) cube steak
  • Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • 1/2 cup (approximately) Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • 4 whole French/deli rolls
  • 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!
