Okay, so am I, but I don’t stare out the door for hours while I wait. A better use of my time is honestly to make dinner. To be perfectly frank, I love getting my house-wife on. My husband works really hard, and I love when he can come home to dinner that’s only objective is to be eaten.
Are you waiting for someone to come home to a hot meal? Make this sandwich. Really, you won’t regret it. I like to call it a cowboy sandwich because there’s something very rugged about it. Meaty, juicy, and smothered in onions. That says cowboy, right?
I can’t take any credit for it because it’s creator is so well known. Ree Drummond, aka the Pioneer Woman, posted this sandwich on her website years ago, and I’ve been looking for a reason to make it. Honestly, who needs a reason when you’ve got something this delicious on your plate? There’s no good reason to wait if you can cook up this beauty tonight!
Okay, it’s not necessarily beautiful, but think of how beautiful it tastes. Like ribs – beauty is in the eye of the fork-holder.
The Marlboro Man Sandwich
by Ree Drummond
1 large onion
1 stick of butter + enough to butter rolls(I never said this was a healthy sandwich)
2 lbs of cube steak
Lawry’s Seasoning Salt
1/2 c (approx.) Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco sauce (to taste)
4 French 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 – or if you’re feeling lazy like me – butter the skillet your browning them in. So easy, and so worth it.
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!
This sandwich is good anytime, but I think it’s especaily good when you can bestow it on someone who’s worked up an appetite after a long day. It’s deliciously comforting.
