Today, whilst I was at stuff mart purchasing the things that I forgot yesterday….cat hair ball treats, pantyhose, flax seed oil, fish oil and … oh drat! I just remembered that I forgot~again~ razor blades for the men…sigh! Anyway, whilst I was shopping, the men tracked me down and said “we have something in the parking lot we want to show you”… So out I went. They had arrived in a 2004, silver PT Cruiser. The boy wanted to test drive cars, but he wasn’t able to drive. They know that I have been wanting one, so they thought that I might like to drive it. Nice car. Way to bad that whoever had the car previously didn’t care to take care of said vehicle. Burn spots everywhere, the glove box was completely broken, and they had cut part of the center console out to put in something…that looked awful. Only 40,000 miles on it. Shame they didn’t take better care of it.
One of the hazards of reading blogs with men hanging around is sometimes they see things they shouldn’t. That happened to me this past week, and because of that, I had to do the following….
Take about 1/2 stick of butter and melt it in your pan till it gets nice and brown. Slice 1 large yellow onion and put in pan.
While the onion is busily softening and turning brown, take 2 pounds of cube steak, cutting thinly and across the grain of the tenderizer, and sprinkle with seasoned salt. By this time, the onions should be sufficiently softened. Remove from the pan, and set aside. Heat another 2 tbsp. butter (yes butter) over high heat until melted and turning brown. Add your meat and don’t stir for about 2 minutes. You want to make sure that it begins to brown. Cook on both sides till meat is cooked through. After your meat is cooked, you will want to shake in a good 1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce and another 2 tbsp. butter (yeah….butter!~don’t skip this) and your set aside onion. Stir. While this is getting all nice and yummy in there,~simmer for about 5-10 minutes~ you need to prepare your rolls. Butter~~hey! I warned you…no one should be reading over your shoulder!~~ halved French rolls and brown on a skillet or griddle. Please do not skip this part either. This sandwich needs grilled bread! While all of this is going on, you must keep your spoon in hand to beat off the mob of happy men!! Grill your bread, turning once to warm through. and assemble. Apologies for the poor quality of the picture….it is those men! Watch how happy you have made them!
I got this from a blog called… Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. Here is the recipe in it’s entirety.
Marlboro Man’s Favorite Sandwich
2-3 pounds cube steak
1 large onion4 French/Deli rolls
Butter~I used almost 2 sticks
5-6 dashes Tabasco sauce~I didn’t use this
Slice onions and cook in 1/4 stick butter until soft and light brown. Remove and set aside. Slice cube steak against the grain, and season with seasoned salt. Add meat in a single layer. Cook one side till brown, then flip and cook the other. Add 1/2 c. (at least) Worcestershire sauce and 2 tbsp butter. Add cooked onions. Stir to combine. Butter halved rolls and brown on griddle.
To assemble, lay bottom half of roll on a plate. Place meat mixture followed by a spoonfull of juice from the pan. Top with other half of roll. Cut in half and devour!
What she doesn’t say is that you need to stand back once you have cut it in half……..especially if you have hungry men present!
