The favorite sandwich recipe starts with steak, of course. Then onions, peppers, mushrooms, and seasonings are added and it’s piled onto a hearty bun. It’s my take on the Marlboro Man’s favorite sandwich, it’s my husband’s favorite, and it’s so good that men everywhere will claim that it’s their favorite, too!
The favorite sandwich recipe is adapted from the Pioneer Woman’s recipe. You can find it in her cookbook and on her website. If you have never visited thepioneerwoman.com, go do it.
Go ahead. I’ll wait.
Cool, huh? Girlfriend is hilarious. And she is not afraid to use a little butter from time to time. OK, she uses a lot of butter a lot of the time. That’s why we are totally BFFs – because of our mutual love and admiration of butter. Well, we haven’t actually met, but if we did, we’d be besties, for sure.
So P-Dub–I can call her that because we’re pals–makes a sandwich called The Marlboro Man’s Favorite Sandwich. It’s chock full of steak and onions, a whole mess of season salt, and Worcestershire sauce. She also adds a bit of Tabasco and lemon pepper, but my kids make a serious Bill-the-Cat face if I mention either lemon pepper or Tabasco in polite company, so I skip them altogether. Oh, and there is a teensy (read: huge) amount of butter involved. I like to dress it up a bit with by sauteeing a sliced green pepper and mini portabella mushrooms with the onions.
Because I’m a rebel. And if you think that’s edgy, then step back–I also add cheese. Oh, yeah. Be afraid of me.
So the first time I made this sandwich, Hubby took a bite.
“What is this?!” he asked.
The Marlboro Man’s Favorite Sandwich.
“I don’t know who this Marlboro Man guy is, but this is my favorite sandwich now.”
Because I live in a house brimming with testosterone, it’s my four boys favorite sandwich, too. And so it became the favorite sandwich recipe of men everywhere.
P-Dub (we’re pals, remember?) does a fab job of illustrating how to make this sandwich. Goodness knows she had mad photography skills. Clearly, I do not. So rather than re-invent the wheel here, check out Marlboro Man’s Favorite Sandwich on thepioneerwoman.com.
Then be a rebel like me and add to it whatever you feel it’s cryin’ out for. If you are really like me, you’ll eat a huge sandwich then watch The Biggest Loser on NBC.
