Skillet Steak Sandwich Recipe – These savory steak sandwiches are easy and very flavorful

Skillet Steak Sandwiches

Sometimes, we’re just in the mood for sandwiches for dinner. Not the deli meat kind. Or even the toasted cheese kind. I’m talking man-sandwiches. Lots of cooked meat, a savory, flavorful sauce and a toasted bun. The kind of sandwich that requires two hands to hold it.

These easy Cowboy Breakfast Sandwiches are an easy breakfast idea

Cowboy Breakfast Sandwiches

I love the Pioneer Woman’s new show Food Network! I love her cooking style and how they’ve incorporated her blogging into the show. On her first episode, she made Cowboy Breakfast Sandwiches. As soon as I saw them, I just knew my husband would love them! I knew, though, that I had to make a few tweaks to the recipe. So, the recipe that follows is my interpretation of the PW’s original.

If you’re looking for a great sandwich that is packed with bold flavors and a little kick, give my Kickin’ Chicken Panini a try! This sandwich has everything you’ve ever dreamed of in a sandwich! It’s bold. It’s sweet. It’s melty. It’s crunchy. It’s got a kick. And, did I mention that it has bacon?!? It’s pure sandwich nirvana.

This is a hard post for me to write.  This recipe is one of my husband’s all time favorite sandwiches.  His mother has made him these sandwiches since he was a little boy.   Now, he even has my son asking for them.  I, on the other hand, want no part of them.  I think they’re gross.  Nothing about this recipe is appealing to me.   That’s why this post is hard for me to write!

Before writing this post, I surveyed my friends and family to see what they thought of this recipe.  Some had never heard of it but thought it sounded good.  But, many of them loved it.  They remember their moms making it for them when they were younger.   It seems to be one of those old fashioned recipes that has been around for ages and it was the go-to sandwich for parties and gatherings.  My husband packs them in his lunch every year for hunting season.  Just for the record, he buys the ingredients, makes them and eats them.  I have nothing to do with them!

Burger with caramelized onions

Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Don’t tell my husband, but I’m having a love affair.  I’m obsessed.  I just can’t seem to get enough…..of onions!  Yes.  Onions.  It’s nothing that sordid, but oh, so wonderful, nonetheless!

I seriously, can’t seem to get enough.  I like them roasted, sauteed, grilled, raw.  Basically, any way imaginable.  So, it only makes sense that when I watched The Pioneer Woman a few weeks ago on Food Network, my mouth started watering when she made her sliders with caramelized onions!  I mean, c’mon!  A big pan full of golden-brown strands, glistening from the butter…all tender and silky.  I can almost taste them!  There was only one thing left to do…slap a pan on the stove and melt some butter…honey, we’re gonna caramelize some onions!

My husband works a swing shift as a crime fighter so some nights, it’s just Joey (my 4 year old) and I for dinner.  Tonight was one of those nights.
