Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

This is a recipe from Pioneer Woman that I love! She calls it Marlboro Man's Favorite Sandwich (her husband) but is basically a good ol' steak sandwich. Her original recipe with lots of pictures is HERE. I changed a couple of things when I made it like adding peppers and cheese but its basically the same recipe. We made some fresh cut fries with our deep fryer (I'm slightly ashamed to admit I own one, but I do not regret it!) to eat with our sandwiches.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches: (Adapted recipe from Pioneer Woman)
Yield: EASILY feeds 2 adults
1 lb. Cube steak (Round steak that's been extra tenderized; It almost looks like ground beef in the package but its steak)
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1 Onion, thinly sliced
1 Green pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup or 4 T.)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
French/Deli rolls
Provolone Cheese

  1. Turn oven to broil.
  2. Slice onions and peppers and cook in 2 T. butter over medium-medium high heat until onions are soft and light brown. Remove and set aside.
  3. Slice cube steak against the grain. Season with Lawry’s.
  4. Heat 1 T. butter over medium high heat (in same skillet) until melted. Add meat in single layer. Cook one side until brown, then flip and cook until brown, about a minute on both sides.
  5. Add 1/4 cup (at least) Worcestershire sauce and 1 T. butter. Add cooked onions and peppers. Stir to combine.
  6. Butter halved French rolls and brown in skillet.
  7. To assemble, lay bottom half of French roll on baking pan. Place meat mixture, followed by a spoonful of juice from the pan. Top with provolone cheese and broil in the oven until melted. Then eat it all gone-y!

  1. That looks sooo good! In Chile we have a very similar dish but it has diced and salted tomatoes (kinda optional) and mashed, salted avocado (a must) and mayo on the steak. It's called "As" (but it's pronounced like the donkey with two s's :D). I'd kill a man for one from Super As, haha.

  2. i made these today and something was OVERLY salty i am not sure if it was the seasoning salt or the woreceshire sauce ... i think next time ill do pepper and garlic powder no seasoning salt and very little worceshire sauce but it was really tasty meat i didnt know you could do anything with cube steak but chicken fried steak! thanks! :)

    1. Thanks for your input, that's a great suggestion for the recipe! I know it's bad for me but I LOVE salt so that is probably why I didn't even notice haha :-)
