Cube Steak Sandwiches

Jump to Recipe

Sandwiches are another favorite thing for me to make. Much like a burger or taco – you can do so many different things with a sandwich. I mean right off the top – it can be hot or cold! But you can also do so many different things with the combination of sauces, meats, veggies, cheese and breads – with the omission of any one of those. This recipe for Cube Steak Sandwiches is a delightful combination of the sweet onions and bell peppers, the spicy bite of the horseradish mayo and the hearty flavors of a good cube steak.

Cube Steak Sandwiches

So why cube steak? Well there’s a few reasons – one, I personally really like the cute of cube steak. It’s flavorful, and when you cook it right, tender and easy to eat in a sandwich. It’s pretty easy to find – most grocers stock it regularly. And of course there is the lower cost factor – it’s a great way to get a steak dinner without the high ticket shock.

Smoked gouda is a very distinct flavor and adds a lot to the overall flavor of this sandwich. Paired with the spicy hit of the pepper and horseradish mayo – it brings good balance. If you are not super into the flavor of horseradish – you could omit it from the mayo mixture. I will say that horseradish goes incredibly well with most beef preparations. You can reduce the amount I have added to this for a milder version. Or you could put a thinner layer on it. Also – side note – this mayo is also super good on a roast beef sandwich or a bacon cheeseburger!

I served this up with some good ol French fries. I actually included some of the horseradish mayo on the side for dipping (it’s that good!). You could do onion rings, tater tots, or a side salad. This is also really hearty filling sandwich – so you may not actually need anything on the side.

  1. quick question, is the “creamy mayo” supposed to be prepared creamy Horseradish? You have mayo twice. We love cube steak and I’d like to try this! Sounds yummy.
