I heart Pioneer Woman

Light Version of Pioneer Woman’s Marlboro Man’s Favorite Sandwich for 9 points

I love Ree’s  Blog. I want to make everything she cooks.

Like this sandwich.

So, instead of flouncing or just using that much butter (sometimes I cave and do both), I modify like a crazy person.

I know even the lighter version of my favorite (ever!ever!ever!) blogger still racks up the points. Some of you may need a moment to pick your jaw up and I understand that. Really, I do. I’ll give you a minute.

Moment over.

Now, pick yourself up and think about all this again before click your way back to the Real cooking light sites.

This sandwich for dinner paired with roasted potatoes and a zero point veggie like steamed broccoli leaves you at 11 points. That is less than a Chili’s Little Mouth Burger and their side salad with low-fat ranch (13 points) and you get so much more food. It is less than most restaurant turkey burgers. The same as a Taco Bell Fiesta Taco Salad without the shell and less than a Wendy’s small fry and Jr. Hamburger (14 pts). You catch my drift…

This is a meal worth 11 points. Juicy, tasty, savory, beefy in that tangy sauce.  With a side of yummy, crunch potatoes. It’s a little like having your cake and eating it too.

And, just think of all the money you saved by cooking this at home!

Now, see my recipe modifications below and then visit Pioneer Woman’s awesome site and watch how she makes this sandwich step by step.

Lightened Up PW’s MM Man Sandwich Serves: 2

4 slice(s) Nature’s Own White Wheat (bread of the gods, white bread at 1 pt for 2 slices)

1/2 cup(s) Worcestershire sauce

12 sprays Parkay Spray (for broiling the bread)

2 tsp Zapata Hot sauce

3 Tbsp A1 Original

1 tsp Lawrys Seasoned Salt

6 oz cooked trimmed beef cube steak

2 Tbsp unsalted butter (1/2 for browning meat, half for use in making the sauce)

Add the onions from the original if you don’t have a Picasso at home that kicks and screams, running from the room at the mere sight of an onion. Heck, if you don’t have a Picasso why stop there, get crazy and add bell pepper to get a vegetable serving in (it can’t hurt

Now, go read PW’s (drool) and then make your own. I won’t blame you if you make it her way…
