The Marlboro Man Sandwich

I've become a little obsessed with the Pioneer Woman Blog and find that I'm checking it at least once a day. Ree (who pens this wonderful diversion) is witty, entertaining and the woman knows her food. This sandwich is yet another example of something that's simple but so good. Cube steak is something that I thought was only reserved for "chicken fried" steak and therefore NEVER considered buying it. Boy, have we missed out. We added cheese to our version so this will forever replace any lame version of chewy cheesesteaks we've made in the past. Marlboro Man is Ree's rancher husband and he's got good taste!

The Marlboro Man Sandwich

1 whole Large (or 2 Small) Onions
2 sticks Butter (lots And Lots Of Butter)
2 pounds (to 3 Pounds) Cube Steak (tenderized Round Steak That's Been Extra Tenderized)
Lawry's Seasoned Salt (or Similar Seasoned Salt)
½ cups (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. Or place meat on roll, cover with cheese (provolone is a good choice) and pop under the broiler for an amazing cheesesteak that rivals any restuarant version.
