MM Sandwiches - WTF and WOW Recipe

MM Sandwiches – PW Style (
4 tablespoons butter
2 pounds cube steak (round steak that’s been extra tenderized)
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 whole large yellow onion, halved and sliced thick
2 whole green bell peppers, sliced into rings
2 whole red peppers, sliced into rings
3 cloves garlic, minced
16 ounces white mushrooms sliced
2 tablespoons (additional) butter
1 ½ cup sherry (cooking sherry is fine)
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 dashes Tabasco (more to taste)
8 whole deli rolls (the crustier the better)
2 tablespoons (additional) butter
8 slices cheese (provolone, swiss, pepper jack)

Cut cube steak into strips against the grain.  Season with salt and pepper.  Set aside.  Heat 4 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over high heat.  As soon as it is melted (but before it burns) brown strips of cube steak in two or three batches, about 1 ½ minutes per side.  Remove meat to a clean plate when brown.  Set aside.  Reduce heat to medium-high.  Add onions, garlic green peppers, and red peppers and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until relatively soft (but not flimsy).  Remove to a clean plate. Set aside.  Melt 2 additional tablespoons butter to the skillet.  Add sliced mushrooms and stir.  Pour in sherry, then add Worcestershire and Tabasco. Cook over medium-high heat for five minutes, or until liquid has reduced by about a third.  Add in meat and vegetables, stirring to combine.  Cook for just a few minutes to heat everything up, adding more sherry and Worcestershire and Tabasco as needed.  Stir in 2 tablespoons butter at the end.  Keep hot.  Toast halved deli rolls in plenty of butter until golden brown and crisp.  Spoon meat/veggie mixture on the lower half of the bun, then spoon one or two tablespoons of pan sauce over the meat (it will soak into the bun).  Drizzle a little sauce on the underside of the top bun, too, for extra flavor and moisture.  Top with cheese and broil for a minute or two, until the cheese is melted.  Serve immediately.
