Steak and Cheese

Pin It

You know when you have that meal that just makes everything okay? This is it. The picture doesn't even do it justice, because let me tell you...this sandwich is heaven. It's not just a regular steak and cheese either. It has the perfect mix of Worcestershire, hot sauce and Lawry's to make your socks fly off. You can actually treat the leftover sauce like an au jus, too. We dunked the sandwich in for some extra added flavor and it was the perfect comfort food. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. Just once. I promise you won't turn back to those store bought steak and cheese sandwiches ever again!

  • 1 Large (or 2 Small) Onions
  • 1 1/2 sticks Butter
  • 2-3 pounds Cube Steak
  • Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • 1/2 cups Worcestershire Sauce
  • Hot Sauce, To Taste (I used Crystal's)
  • Provolone Cheese
  • 4 whole French/Deli Rolls

Slice onions and cook in 1/4 stick butter until soft and light brown. Remove and set aside.

Slice cube steak against the grain. Season generously with Lawry's.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter over high heat (in same skillet) until melted and beginning to brown. Add meat in single layer. Cook one side until brown, then flip and cook until brown, about a minute on both sides.  If all meat does not fit in the skillet in a single layer, do it in batches setting the first batch aside while the second batch cooks.

Add Worcestershire sauce, 5-6 shakes hot sauce, and 2 tablespoons butter. Add cooked onions. Stir to combine.

Butter halved rolls and brown in skillet.

Assemble sandwiches by laying the bottom halves of the rolls on a baking sheet. Top with meat mixture. Place two slices of Provolone Cheese on top of each sandwich and place under broiler (on high) until cheese melts. Remove from broiler, spoon some extra juice goodness on top, followed by the top of the bun. Enjoy!


  1. Hi Amy! Your blog looks great! Love the header, too. Thanks for posting this as your first recipe. It has reminded me that I've been wanting to surprise Ben with a steak and cheese sandwich one of these days. :)

  2. Looks yummy and easy to make. My kind of meal!!!! Keep them coming.

  3. I love Steak Sandwiches, this looks awesome. I've never heard of Lawry's, though, will any kind of seasoned salt do?

  4. If you can't find Lawry's, any seasoned salt will work just fine. Enjoy!

  5. Yum! You can't go wrong with steak and provolone cheese!!

  6. Looks like a a very good recipe. Your first post looks great when I look back at my very first post I cringe. Header looks really cute, but put a photo of yourself in the about me people like to see who the person behind the scene is :)Thanks for reading my blog.

  7. The site looks awesome! And I love the idea of using cube steak as it would be more tender. Keep up the good work and you will be off and running!

  8. Hi Amy - I found your blog while checking out "Food in my Beard." Congrats! This recipes looks amazing...perfect for a football Sunday. I started a blog last year - mostly about food, though I intend to write about other things I love to do to pass the time (when not eating out, cooking, planning my next meal!). Check it out if you're interested: http://thyme-well-spent.blogspot.com/. Cheers, Jen
