Bonus points if you know what movie this post title came from. Hint: Just put it on Mr. Underhill's tab.
I made something else new for supper last week. Hubby declared it to be in his top five, or maybe even his top three. Son #1 agreed. Son #2 picked, cried, gave dirty looks, and yelled at anyone who was looking at him. You do the math.
I noticed Beef Round Thin Sandwich Steak in my grocer's meat case. I had never seen it before. It was 6 very thin slices of steak, each about 2-3" wide. The packages were around $5 and were BOGO. I bought two.
I went to the bakery section and bought the best looking sub rolls I could find. At the deli, I bought thick slices of Mozzarella. I already had onion, but my mushrooms were bad.
I thinly sliced sweet onion and sauteed it in oil. Before it was done, I added thinly cut strips of the steak. I seasoned them with salt, pepper, and a dash of garlic powder. I cooked it all at a medium high heat for just a few minutes.
I spooned several strips of steak onto one of the delicious buns, topped it with cheese, and popped it in the hot oven. I added mayo and tomato to mine. The guys took theirs plain.
For a side, I made oven fries. Those went over very well! I sliced 3 medium-large potatoes into 1/4" strips. I tossed them in 2T oil and 1/2 t salt. I layed them out on a greased cookie sheet and baked at 450 for 30 minutes. They were a little tricky to get off the cookie sheet, but they were delicious! The guys fought over the crispy fries.
The verdict: I'm definitely adding this to the rotation. It was quite simple and half the family liked it. (Those are the best odds I can expect right now.) One package of the meat (.64 lb.) made 4 sandwiches for us. One of them was kind of skimpy though. 3 potatoes did not make enough fries for us. I'll do 4 next time.
Anyone else ever make steak sandwiches? I'd like to try a Chicken Philly version!
