I really like Ree Dummond‘s show, The Pioneer Woman, on the Food Network. She usually makes the kinds of foods we like – easy, but packed with flavor. This recipe for a cube steak po boy is based on her husband’s favorite sandwich.
The key to making this sandwich a great sandwich is to not overcook the cube steak. The beef is very thin and cooks very quickly. If you overcook it, it will be tough, so be careful!
Also try my Creole beef debris po boy.It’s one mighty fine sandwich too.

- Add 2 more tablespoons of the butter to the skillet. Increase heat to high.
