Cube Steak Sandwiches

I got this recipe from The Pioneer Woman’s website.  We did make some changes to it to suit our tastes.  These were really good and we will make them again.  {print recipe}

Cube Steak Sandwich

4 Tablespoons butter

2 pounds cube steak

salt and pepper

2 small onions, halved and then sliced

1 red pepper, halved and then sliced

1 green pepper, halved and then sliced

1 yellow pepper, halved and then sliced

2 mushrooms, halved and then sliced

2 Tablespoons additional butter

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

4 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Hoagie rolls

slices of cheese

Cut the cube steak into strips against the grain.  Season with salt and pepper and set it aside.

Cube steak

Prepare the onions, peppers, and mushrooms.

Mushrooms, onions, and peppers

Heat the 4 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over high heat.  As soon as it’s melted, brown the strips of cube steak.  You will need to do this in a couple of batches.  Once browned on the one side, flip it over and brown on the other side.  We did this longer than the 1 1/2 minutes she suggests as we like our meat well done.

Browning the cube steak

Remove the meat to a clean bowl and brown the rest of the meat.  Set this aside while you cook the vegetables.

Reduce the heat to medium.  Add onions, garlic powder, and peppers.  Cook for 3 to 5 minutes.  Add the mushrooms after a couple of minutes and stir.

Onions and peppers

Pour in the chicken broth and Worcestershire sauce.  Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or so, or until liquid has reduced by about a third.  We did add the meat when we added the broth and sauce.

Heating everything up

Toast your halved hoagie rolls until golden brown, we toasted ours under the broiler.  Spoon the meat and vegetable mixture on the lower half of the roll.  Spoon a tablespoon or so of juice on top of that.  Place on a broiler pan and top with sliced cheese and place under broiler until the cheese is melted.

Melted cheese

Drizzle some sauce over the top bun and then serve.
