Pioneer Woman's Marlboro Man Sandwiches

My oldest son recently asked for Pioneer Woman's Marlboro Man sandwiches for dinner and I just had to make them for him.  Speaking of Pioneer Woman, have you seen her new show on the Food Network?  Even though I think most of the recipes she's made so far are from her cookbook, I really enjoy her show.  If you haven't seen it already, check it out - it's a nice change from the usual cooking shows on TV. Anyway, this is what my version of the sandwich looked like, including the bad photography.

This is Pioneer Woman's version of the Marlboro Man sandwich (and she thinks her photography is bad - I'll let you compare the two pictures :)

My picture may not look as good as hers, but based on the smile on my son's face, I think it tasted just as good.  Here's the recipe if you would like to make your own Marlboro Man sandwiches for your son or cowboy.

Marlboro Man Sandwiches

2 whole Medium Onions, Halved And Sliced
1-¼ stick Butter
2 pounds Cube Steak, Cut Into 1/2-inch Strips
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
¼ cups Worcestershire Sauce
5 dashes Tabasco Sauce
4 whole Deli Rolls (crusty), Split
8 slices (thick) Fresh Mozzarella
8 slices (thick) Ripe Tomato
1-½ cup Arugula

  • Season meat with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Melt 1/3 stick of butter in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions for several minutes, until golden brown. Remove to a separate plate and set aside.
  • Return skillet to stove and increase heat to high. Add another 1/3 stick of butter. When melted, add meat to pan in a single layer. Do not stir. Allow meat to sit, undisturbed, for a minute in order to brown. With a spatula, flip meat to the other side and allow to brown. Reduce heat to low. Add onions back into pan, then add Worcestershire, Tabasco, and remaining 1/3 stick of butter. Stir and allow to simmer, adding more Worcestershire or Tabasco as desired.
  • Melt 1/2 stick of butter on griddle or in a separate skillet. Place roll halves, cut side down in butter and brown over medium-low heat until golden brown.
  • To serve, spoon meat/onion mixture over bottom half of rolls. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons pan juice over the top. Lay two mozzarella slices on each sandwich, followed by two tomato slices. Top with a generous amount of arugula, then press the top half of the roll on top. Cut in half and serve immediately.

Guess what her program was only for 5 weeks. But she may do more again next year.
