Hunk of Meat Monday: Italian Steak Sandwiches

Over the next few weeks I will have a couple of brand new titles from Gooseberry Patchto give away on the blog. Both of which are working mom treasurers. This recipe for Joe’s Italian Steak Sandwiches come from page 117 of the Weeknight Dinners Cookbook.

Italian Steak Sandwich
It was a quick sandwich to make, especially since we had some premade beef patties in the freezer. I seasoned them with gourmet hamburger seasoning and began frying them in a cast iron skillet.

Hamburger Patties Frying
The recipe called for a 4 oz can of mushrooms. I had none, so I just sliced up some button mushrooms and tossed them in with the hamburgers along with some Worcestershire sauce.

As the beef patties cooked, I grabbed some hoagie buns. Sliced Italian bread would be ideal, but improvising any bread or bun will work. Spread butter on the bread and pop on a grill to brown. Or toss it under the broiler in the oven like I did.

I doctor everything, so of course I doctored the sauce.

Italian Herb Mix
Once the sauce is bubbling, you beef patties should be fully cooked.

And the bread should be perfectly golden brown.

Sandwich building time!! Start by spreading sauce on the bottom piece of bread.

Sauce base
I cut my patties in half to fit on the hoagie style buns better. Not perfect, but it worked.

Then scrape some of the sauted mushrooms from the pan and add them to the patties.

And now my favorite part…CHEESE. Recipe called for Muenster. I had provolone. Provolone it is!

    YUM! I would go with more mushrooms, add some onions, and maybe skip the sauce, but then I am such a rebel! What a great recipe to play with, and a whole different way to look at a hamburger!
