Weeknight Steak Sandwich

This is one of those schlocky “just like mama used to make” intros. My mom used to make steak sandwiches when I was a kid, now I’m taking it up a notch, but still keeping it quick and cheap.

Huh that wasn’t so bad.

Anyway, less is more with your steak spice on this. I used Montreal steak spice, whatever you use, know that if it’s premade it’ll be salty AF so you don’t wanna blow out the other flavours.
