Such a simple beast to have made it in the sandwich hall of fame. Thin slices of cube steak and onions slowly roasted in Worchestershire Sauce and butter nestled between two thick slices of bread. Hate to say it, but yum!
A classic philly cheesesteak would generally feature a melted cheddar cheese sauce, but there’s something about the words “cheese sauce” that kind of ruins the whole image for me. Instead, I prefer two slices of Swiss cheese slowly melting from the heat of the bread. That’s how we roll here at The Comfy Kitchen – your kitchen, your prerogative!
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 5 minutes Serving Size: 1 Sandwich
1 (1/4lb) cube steak, halved and sliced thinly
1/4 yellow onion, sliced thinly
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce, to taste
1/2 tablespoon butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pinch of all-purpose flour
Salt and Pepper, to taste
2 slices Swiss cheese
Your favorite sandwich spread
1 hoagie or submarine roll, toasted
Any sandwich fixings or side items you like!
1. Thinly slice the cube steak and onion to an even size. Heat a small sauté pan over medium heat, add the Worcestershire, butter and EVOO and heat until the butter is melted. Add the cube steak, onions and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle in a pinch of flour to help the meat caramelize. Cook over medium heat, stirring the pan infrequently so that the meat and the onion caramelize to a deep, rich golden brown color.
2. Meanwhile, toast the bread. Assemble y0ur favorite sandwich fixings and side item of choice (fries, chips, carrot sticks) :). I’d suggest serving this one with a perfectly chilled soft drink of your choice. Enjoy!
