Cube Steak Sandwiches

Two of my favorite new blogs are The Pioneer Woman, and the recipe sharing blog she started, Tasty Kitchen. I discovered Ree after checking her cookbook out from my library and I really love her writing style and photography, as well as her recipes. This recipe sounds really good to me, but I am not sure what my husband (who has to be the only man alive who doesn't love steak) will think of it. Just to clarify, he doesn't hate steak, he would just prefer a ground meat instead. I, on the other hand, could eat filet mignon everyday. Anyway, here is Ree's recipe or you can click here for her printable version.


1 large (or 2 small) onions
2 sticks butter (lots and lots of butter)
2-3 lbs. cube steak (tenderized round steak that's been extra tenderized)
Lawry's seasoned salt
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
tabasco sauce, to taste
4 whole French/deli rolls (earthgrains are best)

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 tbsp. butter over high heat (in same skillet) until melted and beginning to brown. Add meat in a 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, 5-6 shakes of tabasco, and 2 tbsp. 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 on roll, followed by a spoonful of juice from the pan. Top with other half of roll , cut in half, and devour!

Doesn't that sound good? Not very good for you (all that butter brings Paula Deen to mind), but delicious, no? :)

By the way, those Meatball Burgers I made last week were GREAT! I highly recommend them and will be adding them to our regular rotation!

Happy eating!


  1. I had to sneak down and check out the meatball burger recipe, it sounds amazing. I am printing out the directions and will be giving them a try the next time we grill.
    PW has some great recipes, this sandwich is on my list of her recipes to try, it does sound mouth watering :)

  2. I've been wanting to try these, but my husband thinks they sound gross :( We are getting ready to get our 1/2 cow back and I'm going to make these anyways to use up some of the cube steaks!

  3. I've seen that recipe for the Marlboro Man Sandwich before (I used to read PW's blog a lot, even made several of her recipes - her ranch dressing recipe is tasty!) but I've not made it. I think I was at a different place in my cooking then (ie not that confident in my abilities) and while I'm no Emeril now, I think I could tackle this one. It does sound really tasty!!

  4. that looks delicious! we are low-carbing here so we are avoiding bread, but I could easily make the meat and serve it with some veggies, bet it would taste scrumptious!!


  5. I don't read her blog anymore, but I have made a few of her recipes. They were pretty good. I've never made the Marlboro Man Sandwich, I'll be anxious to hear what you think of it!

  6. My husband loves cube steak - we usually do cube steak with fried eggs for a "breakfast for dinner" thing, but I bet he would like that sandwich! The only thing that scares me is the amount of Worcestershire...seems like a LOT for someone who usually only puts a dash or two in her recipes!

  7. (Wow - my "word verification" for the above post was "DOUSE"...isn't that weird?!?! Guess that means I should "douse" my cube steak with Worcestershire and make that one!)

  8. Her website is so beautiful!

    Nice to 'meet' you :)

  9. Mmmmm....that sounds really good. :)

  10. What a great way to use up cube steak! I always tend to use the pkgs of cube steak in my freezer last. This recipe might move them up to the front!

  11. Every now and then a little butter must be consumed. Just every now and then.

    Thanks for your suggestions on the dinner. I almost went with the Preacher's Delight, but freaked out at the idea of trying something new.
