MM Sandwiches - PW Style!

"KATE! I have a recipe that you HAVE to make!"

That was an email from my friend Sarah about these sandwiches that she found on the Pioneer Woman and said that I must try. She was absolutely right! These sandwiches are melt-in-your-mouth delish! They have tremendous flavor and once the pepper jack cheese is bubbling on top of these bad boys your mouth will be watering before you even take your first bite. Given that these MM sandwiches are a favorite of the Marlboro Man (Pioneer Woman's husband); your boyfriends, fiances and husbands are sure to love them too!

You Will Need:
  • 4 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 pounds Cube Steak (round Steak That's Been Extra Tenderized)
  • Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 whole Large Yellow Onion, Halved And Sliced Thick
  • 2 whole Green Bell Peppers, Sliced Into Rings
  • 2 whole Red Bell Peppers, Sliced Into Rings
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 16 oz, weight White Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 2 Tbsp (additional) Butter
  • 1-½ cup Sherry (regular Or Cooking Sherry Is Fine)
  • 4 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 4 dashes Tabasco (more To Taste)
  • 8 whole Deli Rolls (the Crustier The Better)
  • 2 Tbsp (additional) Butter
  • 8 slices Cheese (Provolone, Swiss, Pepper Jack)

Here We Go:

  • Cut cube steak into strips against the grain, season with salt and pepper and set aside
  • Heat 4 Tbsp of butter in a large skillet over high heat
  • As soon as it’s melted (but before it burns) brown strips of cube steak in two or three batches, about 1 1/2 minutes per side and remove meat to a clean plate when brown. Set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium-high and add onions, garlic, green peppers, and red peppers and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until relatively soft (but not flimsy.) Remove to a clean plate. Set aside.
  • Melt 2 additional Tbsp butter to the skillet
  • Add sliced mushrooms and stir
  • Pour in sherry, then add Worcestershire and Tabasco
  • Cook over medium-high heat for five minutes, or until liquid has reduced by about a third
  • Add in meat and vegetables, stirring to combine. Cook for just a few minutes to heat everything up, adding more sherry and Worcestershire (and Tabasco) as needed
  • Stir in 2 Tbsp butter at the end and keep hot
  • Toast halved deli rolls in plenty of butter until golden brown and crisp
  • Spoon meat/veggie mixture on the lower half of the bun, then spoon one or two tablespoons of pan sauce over the meat (it will soak into the bun.)
  • Drizzle a little sauce on the underside of the top bun, too, for extra flavor and moisture
  • Top with cheese and broil for a minute or two, until the cheese is melted
  • Serve immediately

Serves 8
Happy Feasting!
