I used leftover hamburger buns from the Fiesta burgers earlier in the week. I do wish I would've used kaiser rolls or french bread like the original recipe recommends.
Warning: There is a LOT of butter in this recipe. But that's one of the main reasons I love the Pioneer Woman. She isn't afraid to use the best ingredient there is. The meat took a little bit of love, but it was definitely well worth it.
Marlboro man sandwiches-adapted from The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond
Total time: 25 minutes
Makes 4 sandwiches
- 1/2 cup butter, divided
- 1/4 red wine
- 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 pounds cube steak
- Seasoned salt, to taste
- Lemon pepper, to taste
- Chicago steak seasoning, to taste
- 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 5-6 dashes Tabasco sauce
- 4 hamburger buns
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
In a cast iron skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter and red wine over medium heat. Throw in onions and garlic. Saute 5-7 minutes or until onions are tender. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate.
Meanwhile, cut each piece of cube steak against the grain into 1-inch strips. Season to taste with seasoned salt, lemon pepper and Chicago steak seasoning.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the same pan. Add just enough meat to fit in one layer on the pan. Cook about 1 minute then flip to the other side. Cook for another minute then remove to the same plate as the onions. Repeat with remaining meat.
Return meat and onion mixture to the pan. Pour in Worcestershire, Tabasco sauce and 2 tablespoons butter. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until butter is melted.
Meanwhile, toast each side of the buns. Then place some meat and onions on the bottom side of the bun. Spoon a little bit of the pan juices on top of the meat to keep them moist. Top with mozzarella cheese, the other bun and enjoy!
