A great steak and onion sandwich made with cube steak. Easy to make and delicious...


-- Garlic Oil --
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic; crushed
-- Filling --
2 1/2 pounds cube steak
1 large sweet onion; cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
1 clove garlic; crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil; divided
4 tablespoons butter; divided
Seasoned salt
Fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 cup beef consomme or stock
Sriracha; or your favorite hot sauce
4 crusty rolls; (6 inches each), split, toasted

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



To prepare garlic oil: Mix together 1/4 cup of olive oil and the garlic and let rest for 30 minutes.

Heat 1 tablespoon each of the olive oil and butter in a heavy 12- or 13-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add sliced onions and saute, stirring frequently, until soft and light brown, about 7 to 10 minutes. Add garlic, and stir until fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes more. Remove from skillet and set aside.

While the onions are cooking, slice the cube steak against the grain, into 1/2-inch wide strips. Generously sprinkle meat with seasoned salt and pepper, to taste.

Using the same skillet over high heat, add another 1 tablespoon each of the olive oil and butter, heat until butter begins to brown. Add meat to the skillet in a single layer, and saute, without stiring, for about 1 to 2 minutes, or long enough for first side to brown. Using a spatula, turn meat to the other side, and saute another 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned and no longer pink. Once the meat is browned, add Worcestershire sauce, consomme, and Sriracha, to taste (I use 4 to 5 good shakes). Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium, and cook until sauce is reduced by about half. Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to slightly thicken and finish the sauce. Return onions to skillet, stirring to combine, and cook until heated through. Turn off heat, cover and let sit while you prepare rolls.

Splt rolls in half, brush both sides of the split rolls with garlic oil, place on a baking sheet and broil for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until lightly golden brown.

To assemble, lay bottom of the roll face-up on a plate. Cover with a layer of meat and onions, followed by a spoonfull of juice from the pan. Top with other half of roll, cut sandwich in half, and enjoy!


Easy to modify to your families tastes--increase or decrease the amounts of garlic, onions, hot sauce; add sliced mushrooms, strips of bell peppers, a chopped chipotle chili pepper; use different seasonings; top with your favorite cheese... Simply, make it the way you like it...and enjoy!

Great flavor, the cut of meat was a bit tough so I will cut it thinner next time.

So tender, I cooked the steak hot and quick. Used lot's of Siracha and it was sooo hot and flavorful! Topped with provolone cheese too.

Oh and I used stewing steak cut into strips rather than cube steak

Made this again tonight, loved it. I might use a little less wors. sauce next time so it's not as strong flavored for the picky kids. Adults wanted more though!

Just made this yummy steak sandwich for family and I. OMG! We loved it. I'm normally not a huge fan of cube steak, it was very juicy and tender.

Not bad. Cube steak was a bit dry for me but still good
