Cube Steak Sandwich

Here's another not-so-healthy guilty pleasure meal.  I do try to make healthy dinners as much as possible, but occasionally it's nice to have a treat.   I made this when we were in a time crunch before heading out to a movie. Even though this meal is high in fat and calories, I still think it's better than grabbing fast food.  

This is based on the Pioneer Woman's Marlboro Man Sandwich.  It's a very cheap, easy and delicious meal.
All you need is cube steak, onions, peppers, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco  cheese and sandwich rolls.

Cube steak is a tenderized steak sometimes called minute steak.  You can see the little square shaped indents where it's been tenderized.   You can also see it's pretty cheap.  

Start by sautéing sliced onion and peppers in a little oil, then remove them to a bowl.

In the same pan, melt a tablespoon of butter over medium heat.  

Slice the cube steak into thin strips and season with salt pepper and some paprika and garlic powder.

And add them to the hot butter in the pan.  Let the meat cook undisturbed for about a minute to develop a brown crust.

Then flip the meat over and continue cooking.   Add some Worcestershire and Tabasco and let it simmer for a few minutes.

Then add the cooked onions and peppers back to the pan and mix it all together.

Toast the buns, and then spread with horseradish mayo if you like. 

Top with the steak & veggies. It should be nice and messy.

Now top with the cheese.

And the other half of the bun.  
Enjoy this tasty sandwich with a nice salad.  It is so easy and delicious, you'll love it!
