Even though I’ve been a dedicated Pioneer Woman reader for over 3 years (after spending Christmas day, 2007 reading through her love story), I had yet to make the sandwich. THE Marlboro Man sandwich. The sandwich guaranteed to make a man propose (didn’t even have to use it for my man!).

That all changed last night.

Things have been pretty crazy around here since the proposal. Wonderfully crazy. Over the moon excited crazy, but still crazy. Case in point: I bought the meat to make these on Saturday, and didn’t get around to making them until last night. Note to self: cube steak in the fridge does not last that long. When I pulled it out last night, the meat was a color no meat should be. I quickly called the boy, who was on his way home, and he sweetly went and picked up more steak.

He really wanted the sandwich.

I served these with steamed artichokes, and I might have been slightly distracted by my love for the artichoke, but these were still delicious.
